Thoughts and memories of living and traveling abroad

Ireland: Dublin

One of Heath’s childhood friends lives in Dublin. Heath had not spoken to him since he left Arkansas and one day he asked me to try and find him. Ah, the wonderful world of the internet! I found him on Facebook and they were able to reconnect. So Heath was excited to catch up with him and his wife in Dublin before they move to Hawaii. Before we met up with them, Heath and I decided to pamper ourselves and get hair cuts at the Aveda salon. It was a nice place, but nothing like the Aveda in Cape Coral! No, really! The Aveda salon was in a very busy shopping area in Dublin. After a yummy Italian lunch and hair cuts we decided to walk around and find a pub. Shouldn’t take too long here!

I however, enjoyed the live music. Click here to hear them sing about the Jumbo Breakfast Roll, a traditional Irish hangover cure!

This big pole is called The Spire of Dublin. Hmm.

Old friends reunite! This is Heath with Gerry and his wife, Christina Voytko. Gerry and Heath grew up on the air force base together… and from the stories I heard, got into a lot of trouble together too!
