Dublin, and New York!

Well the day has finally arrived. Today is our very last day in Ireland. I can't really organize my feelings about the trip, even though I've spent countless journal entries trying to do just that. Maybe in a week or two I will have some perspective and be able to talk about it, but right now I'm just going to focus on one thing: Where's Waldo.

When we first got to Dublin we found an ad for a giant meeting of people dressed as Waldo, or Wally as he's known over here. Obviously we had to participate, so on Sunday afternoon we ran straight to Merrion Square and bought our red and white striped shirts, hat and glasses. We then took part in the biggest group of Wallys ever assembled - we got into the Guiness Book of World Records! 3,657 people showed up dressed as Waldo, including 9 of us from Stony Brook.

My time in Ireland is almost up, but I will always remember it... especially my day as Waldo :)

  3. Hi,

    My name is KC Owens; I’m a college student who loves to travel! While cruising the Internet, I found your site and really enjoyed reading your posts. Personally, I think traveling is a necessary part of life as you’re exposed to all sorts of new cultures and experiences. While enjoying time abroad, I've found it's crucial to fully understand the dangers that you might encounter along the way. These mishaps are part of life and certainly part of travel but it’s always a great idea to take preventive measures to help ensure your safety while abroad.

    I was hoping that you would allow me to write a post for your site to share my travel safety tips with your readers? I put a lot of time and passion into my traveling and I would love to help others by offering safety advice as a result of the mistakes and triumphs I've had. I look forward to hearing from you!
