Hello Lovies, today I'll be sharing the last of our trip with you!
Our last day in London and our couple of days in Dublin :)
Our last day in London it was raining out and I was beginning to get a pretty bad pain in my right knee and hip from all the walking (I used to play softball, do gymnastics, and cheer competitively so I'm sure it has to do something with all of the running and jumping for 15+ years) so we opted to spend the day in the several free museums in Kinsington. Kinsington is the part of London our hotel was in so we just had a short walk to get to the museums!
Our first stop was the National History Museum...
This is Dippy the Dinosaur!
Aaron wanted to look at the Dinosaur Exhibit...
So we did :)
Honestly this was the coolest dino exhibit I've ever seen...
Brontosaurus and Triceratops skulls!
In the mammal exhibit, this guy (the 9-banded armadillo)
was reppin for the South!
Aaron lookin' unusually small compared to a blue whale...
And it totally dwarfed me... ha!
And of course, we found my favorite animal :)
The outside of the Nat'l History Museum is pretty too!!
Then we headed over to the Victoria & Albert Museum across the street...
Here I'm standing next to columns of an ancient Chinese palace!
Hahaha... and these things...
I don't even know...
Aaron thought they were neat I guess...
We did much more exploring in the museums... and enjoyed our last night in London!
The next day we headed to the airport and....
Doesn't that look fun?! :)
It was even colder than London!!
And way different accents, obvi...
Such a unique atmosphere!
Live music everywhere on the streets too!
Oh, and there was a protest while we were there...
They were protesting against....
SEPTIC TANK TAXES... ew.
But, you gotta do what you gotta do... ha!
We ate so much pub food... it's the best!
This is Kennedy's Pub... SO cute!
Aaron's "Baby Guinness"
We laughed because EVERYONE (men and women) at the next table had HUGE pints of Guinness and he had this little glass... hehe... but it was just his first ;)
Guinness Stew... Seriously the BEST!
Aaron and I both had it... and we came back another night for more!
We went to Bewley's for a "Full Irish Breakfast"... YUM!
SO MUCH FOOD!
And Bewley's is GORGEOUS... it's an old school converted into a cafe!
Pretty cappuccinos at breakfast :)
We literally had to SEARCH for this pub...
THE Temple Bar :)
Aaron at The Temple Bar!
Temple Bar Menu... Est. 1840
I loved it... So cute!!
Me and my love in The Temple Bar!
So after reading this, I was convinced... I really thought I could like beer here.
I mean, I'm like 1/4 Irish, right??
Me with a beer that I embarrassingly hated.
and only drank less than half of.
My ancestors would be so disappointed.
Although, hubs did not disappoint :)
Look at that technique! hahaha
Dublin was fun! Although we were only there for a short amount of time... and there really wasn't much to do there! Unless you want to shop at a lot of fairly high-end stores... We did a lot of laying around in our hotel room (watching Irish trash TV... which was similar to Jerry Springer and not half bad... haha!) and eating Pub Food... which was very good! :) I'd go back in a heart beat!
