Dublin, Ireland

I had several days in Dublin as I made it my main hub for doing tours out of. Dublin overall was more of a big city than I expected so I wasnt to thrilled about it. I walked around the town but most things are very expensive and just big city type stuff. Ireland overall…

Rome, Italy & Vatican
