Trinity College, Dublin

... that I'd never been to Ireland before, so my long weekend in Dublin completed goal 41. As you'll have worked out from the previous post, I did a fair bit of walking - always my favourite way of getting to know a new city. I also did a few touristy things: I went on a tour of Trinity College and saw the Book of Kells with some other BookCrossers; I visited all three cathedrals. I was going to go to the National Museum of Ireland but I only got round to thinking of it on Monday and it was closed. Mostly, though, I wandered.

Ireland is on the 'to go back to' list.

So far I have spent about four days of my life in Dublin. This is one of them. Specifically, this is Sunday 15th April 2012, the final day of the 2012 BookCrossing convention, which was the reason for my being in Dublin in the first place - well, that and the cheap rail'n'sail deal, and a desire to see the world.

Here's what I saw on 15th April:

Why do I want to do this?

I like exploring new places.

How will I know I've done it?

I'll have spent a period of at least seven hours in a country in which I've never previously spent a significant length of time. (Changing trains in Bruxelles-Midi, or flying into Geneva airport to be driven to Annecy, in the French Alps, does not count as a significant length of time, so both Belgium and Switzerland are still open.)

I'll record this in a post in this journal.
