While our trip was in both Seattle and Portland, I ended up only really taking pictures in Seattle as we knew we would be out late in Portland and I didn’t want to risk carrying my camera with me the whole day. Anywho, here’s the rest of the pics. We’ll be back soon though, as next time we come back up here we’ll be going even further north. ;)
First trip of the summer! This memorial day weekend we had a trip to Seattle and Portland. This was Michelle’s first time to Seattle so of course, we had to swing by all the normal tourist spots, but it has been a while since I went up there as well so I didn’t mind.
Just a few pics from a local car show.
Last day and last post of the UK trip, this time a whole day in Dublin. Being in Dublin, had to play tourist and visit the Guinness brewery. Also swung by Trinity Library and saw Brian Boru's harp which dates back to as far as 14th-15th century.
As we wrap up our time in London, we traveled over to Dublin, Ireland for the last leg of our trip. While one of the less eventful days with the flight occurring in the middle of the day, we were at least able to end it on a high note with a dinner at O’Neills Pub. A very interesting building that felt like a cluster of rooms tied together, the buffet style Irish food was exactly what we needed that night.
Our second and only full day in London, we first traveled to our old stomping grounds around Shoreditch and Brick Lane. Later we went to Mercato Metropolitano to meet with Marcel and one of his owners while wrapping up the day at the nearby Tate Modern museum. Gonna try to cram everything in one post, so early apologies for the length of this one.
One thing I really appreciated about London was the popularity of traditional neon signage. I do wish they were more common here in the States, though some of the language that was used should probably stay in UK…
Some good ole guerilla marketing along with an amazing book store, will definitely need to remember it next time I go back.
Finally getting out of Scotland, we hopped onto the train and headed down to our old British stomping round, London.
Wrapping up the final day in Scotland with a trip to Calton Hill.
