If you have ever thought of traveling to Dublin or even if you’re exploring there now, I hope that you’re already familiar with some of the well-known spots in town. Places like Grafton Street, Temple Bar, the Guinness Storehouse and Dublin Castle are all well-traveled and rightly so. They embody much of the city life that has made Dublin famous worldwide for history and culture, perfecting the art of drinking and live music shows every night of the week. Dublin is an amazing city to get to know and I’ll never have enough time to explore this town. What too many people forget is that Ireland has always been known as one of the greenest countries to visit, full of rolling hills bursting with wildflowers and sheep, goats and cows to keep you company along your walk. A trip to Dublin would be incomplete without immersing yourself for at least a day (or longer!) in the local flora and fauna.

The start of my walk in Bray.
After graduating college last year, I packed up my tent and hiking boots and drove across the U.S., camping and eating and dancing my way out to California and back to my home in Chicago. That wasn’t enough though, so after saving up for a few months, I grabbed my backpack and flew to Ireland. After some time hopping around western Europe, I took a job at a university in Nanning, China and set out to explore the southern provinces and Thailand. I’m now back in Dublin, planning my next steps for travel…
My passions include frolicking in national parks, trying every bit of vegetarian food I can get my hands on and scoping out jazz and blue bars in each country I visit (this has been far more successful than you’d expect). I plan to spend a few more years making my way to new places before heading back to graduate school to study environmental sociology.
