I just got back from a long weekend visiting my boyfriend in Seattle, and this time we thought we would switch it up and explore more of the Pacific Northwest! We planned a bit of an impromptu trip out to Olympic National Park and it turned into an amazing weekend! Seriously insane landscape, very cute little towns and great local food! Have you ever been to the PNW?
We left for Dublin nice and early and so got in before lunch. We started the day by orienting ourselves Temple Bar ( where the bus from the airport conveniently drops you off). Temple Bar is the main touristy area of Dublin, full of stores, restaurants and stores. While a lot of the stores are just modern mall stores, the buildings themselves are old and the streets are cobblestones which is beautiful. If you wander a little away from the main strip you can get lost in some beautiful old alleyways.
