Day 4 of Europe 2012 Trip: Bristol & Dublin

It’s still sort of a shock that Shannon and I are on the other side of the world and visiting so many places! It’s definitely been a great experience so far. So on day 4, we decided to ditch our friend Pete and meet up with Scott and Aileen who lives in Dublin. We went from Gloucester to Bristol to Dublin. There were definitely a lot of pictures. That’s why I’ll be splitting up the Dublin part into a few different posts. So stay tuned!

We had a couple of hours to kill in Bristol, so we wandered around the place. It was raining and sort of miserable. At first we saw nothing of any interest. So we decided to go back to the train station and wander the other direction. I was glad we did because we found the city centre!

First stop was St Mary Redcliffe Cathedral. It’s really crazy how different these cathedrals are compared to the ones in BC.

More wandering around Bristol.

Banksy graffiti. Soooo cool!

We went to a place called Mission Burrito. They had really good food AND big portions. Mmmmmm….

Back to Temple Meads station to catch the bus to the airport.

Waiting…

We’re off to Dublin!

Landed safely in Dublin. Now to meet up with Scott and Aileen.

Time for a whirlwind tour of Dublin before Scott and Aileen take off back to BC. Hmmm…. Good timing to visit eh?
