We're still in "adventure mode" as we're settling into our new life here in CO, especially since we still don't have our furniture from the moving company yet which means this blog is a little behind schedule. I can't wait to show you what we've been up to in our new house but until then, I want to get the last of our Hollandmoon recaps finished.
In case it's been a while since you've read these recaps, at this point in our trip we had made it back to Dublin via train for the last leg of the trip. Most of the things we decided to do in the city were touristy but what can I say, they're touristy for a reason because we definitely wanted to hit some specific places.
First up was a trip to Trinity College. As Ireland's largest university
Located on campus is also The Old Library which houses all of the oldest books of the school as well as The Book of Kells. The Book of Kells is regarded as one of the oldest written accounts of the New Testament and is one of Ireland's greatest national treasures. The library itself was absolutely stunning inside. The books are ordered by size, not alphabetically or standard Dewey decimal, which makes librarians' jobs that much more complicated I can imagine.
Next up was St. Patrick's Cathedral. There unfortunately wasn't any type of tour inside which left us feeling like we didn't quite take away everything from this historic place as we could have. But it was absolutely gorgeous inside so that definitely made up for it. The detail on the tile work, the age of some of the pieces inside, the stained glass and the overall architecture was something you'd never see in the states. Services are still held inside which added to the cathedral's charm and elegance.
One more recap and I can no longer relive my honeymoon.
