6 Days in Ireland | Day 5 & 6

I kept thinking to myself about how much I need to finish my series of 6 Days in Ireland and now that we have decided to return to Ireland next month, I REALLY need to finish it, lol. So why are day 5 & 6 together in one post? Well with day 6 being our travel day back to Canada it seemed like the best way to put things together. 

Of course, as with every day, it started with a fantastic breakfast.  We then made our to Trinity College and then the Whiskey Museum. Photography in the Book of Kells (located in Trinity College) is strictly forbidden so you won't see any photos of it.

 

This last photo is a pretty fantastic one. We were sitting in the Dublin airport waiting for our plane when we hear someone call out my husband’s name. We were completely shocked! Who in the Dublin airport would know us? As it turns out our next door neighbour’s son, who was on a layover to Germany, had sat down at the table next to us. How crazy is that! So we had a pint (of course) and took the photo, tagging our neighbours. They were so pleased that he found a familiar face on his way to Germany.

Weekend Adventures | IceStorm Photos

On our way to the Dublin airport last spring we got talking to our cab driver about the weather. Ireland had a decent snow fall some weeks before, enough that in made a considerable impact on the transportation in the country. It wasn’t long before the topic of Canadian weather came up and the infamous ice storm, something our cab had never heard of, most notably, the Icestorm of 1998. The effects of its destruction could be seen for years in the trees that bared the scars of torn and broken branches that dragged down power lines and crippled the power grid in four providences for months. However, out of that damage came photos that told an incredible story of what was considered the storm of century.

While most don’t care for Icestorms, I on the other hand enjoy them for their photographic possibilities. With a little creative lighting the possibles are endless.
