I'm going to keep this one short and sweet. My last day in Ireland was spent basically being lazy, going on a bus tour with Sarin, Elijah, and Kendall, and recording our session for Balcony TV.
First item: Being Lazy. Nothing much to discuss there.
Second item: Bus tour. The bus tour took us around some small towns on the sea like Howth as well as Malahide castle. Rather than go into any detail, I'll just post a bunch of pictures.
Third item: Recording our session for Balcony TV. Balcony TV is this web video series where bands play unamplified on a balcony overlooking a street in Dublin. It's really cool, and I'm honored we got to do it. It took us a few tries to get the song right, but I think it came out well in the end. Look for our session to be posted to the web site January 2nd.
After Balcony.TV, we got crappy pizza at a place that promoted itself as "probably the best pizza in Dublin" and then walked home.
The next day, Sarin and I flew home to Boise. I personally could have used a few more days in Ireland, but even with the expensive problem we had, the six days we had were wonderful. It's going to take a while for me to not wish Boise was Dublin. Such beautiful country, such nice people, and basically a better way to organize cities and transportation compared to what we have here. The fact that we could get what we needed by walking most places was amazing. I would love to have that here. Sigh... Oh well. It's easy to only see the good in a place when you're there for six days. I'm sure after a while I'd be missing Boise.
And thus ends our trip to Ireland and (for some) Scotland. Hope you enjoyed these posts!
