In Which I Become the Queen of Tarts


Day 2: Friday July 19th, Dublin Day 1

So I have well documented on this blog my love for following other people's lists and itineraries. I think it's more adventurous to follow someone else's suggestions, because this way you end up trying different things that you wouldn't necessarily do on your own. For this trip, I tried following one of my very favorite columns, the New York Times' 36 Hours in Dublin. For those who don't know, this itinerary gives you a schedule in a particular city or area from Friday afternoon to Sunday morning. I had a little more than 36 hours in the city, so I decided to combine their regular Dublin itinerary with their literary Dublin schedule.

In Which I Feel Lucky

 
My trip this past summer was by far the longest I have ever taken. None of my other trips had lasted more than two weeks. Given that, it doesn't seem as much sense for me to describe it with my usual level of detail because I wouldn't finish writing about this trip until the 2016 election. Therefore, I have decided to give a brief overview of each day with the main highlights.

I thought about taking my cue from a classic Clint Eastwood movie and listing the most important points of each day as either The Good, The Bad, or The Ugly. But when I thought about it, this movie title seemed unnecessarily negative. (Has anyone ever noticed this before? Eastwood should cheer up  a little bit.)  I decided to title my categories The Good, The OK, and The Ugly instead.
