Walk with Me

Happy Paddy's Day my fellow leprechauns
Hello beautiful earthlings~
In this blog post, I will show you the landmarks I walk pass every day to and from college/work/home in commemoration of the biggest Irish festival here in Ireland - St.Patrick's Day.  (No I am not at the parade due to the cold weather. I'd rather stay at home and watch it on TV instead. Maybe next year?)

The first landmark I always pass by everyday is the Spire. If Paris has Eiffel Tower, Dublin has its Spire.

This landmark is often used as a meeting point of most people if not the General Post Office (GPO).  How do I know this? Well I do it way too much when meeting my friends.

This is Henry Street - one of the famous shopping districts in Dublin City Centre.  According to my Sustainability lecturer last semester that Henry Street is the most walked on street in all of Europe during Christmas season and I think I would agree.  This street gets insanely crowded during the summer months and especially during the Christmas season due to market-like stalls installed along this street.

The Ha'Penney Bridge is a bridge that I can never get its pronunciation right!  Tourists and locals are trying to make this bridge look like Namsan Tower (Seoul, South Korea) or more like Pont des Arts (Paris, France) due to the plenty of padlocks attached to the bridge.  However, the city council does not like the idea of it so they take the locks away but it still does not stop people from doing it.  
This bridge was so pretty during Valentine's Day where they decorated the bridge with red roses. I felt like I was in a fairytale too bad I had no significant other that day.

Merchant's Quay to Temple Bar. Temple Bar is a top tourist spot for its restaurants and pubs.

I don't even think that this is a landmark but my lecturer last year mentioned that there is cravings up that building and it has been preserved.  I think it is such a beautiful piece of art.

I always take this route to college, and this is no easy path since it is a hill.  It was quite the cardio.

This is what the other side looks like.

And the last landmark I walk pass everyday is St. Patrick's Cathedral.  I enjoy walking around this spot when the clock is about to tick to the actual hour and you could hear the beautiful bells ringing.
I also made a vlog for this post so please check it out when you have the time and I would appreciate it!

Thank you so much for taking the time to read my post. I appreciate it so much! Wishing you a very Happy St. Patrick's Day!
Peace & Love!
