Dublin Dan

My second last night in Dublin brought me back to one of my favourite pubs called “Merchant’s Arch” where a very talented singer/guitarist was performing.  Post show, I ended up having a chat with him and his roommate, discovering that he performed six nights a week in Temple Bar.  Now, everyone knows the Irish know how to party, but Daniel O’Sullivan (left) knows how to work it.  I was mesmerized by his ability to sing any given request by tourists visiting from all over the globe, and how confident he is.  Dublin is a very busy city, so to be sharing something he is so passionate about, with so many people watching, is a wonderful thing to be able to do.   Dan is one of the most memorable Irish locals I met on my trip, so on my last night in Dublin, I made sure to catch him perform one more time before getting on my flight home.  In the words of a fellow Canadian friend:

“He should have been signed yesterday“.

I have copied his Facebook link so be sure to take a look at his music.  Happy Birthday Dan!

Thank You

For a while now, I have been feeling this need to write, but couldn’t figure out where to start.  I recently returned home from a backpacking trip through Ireland, and amongst the amazing people I met were two gyals (Anna & Rachel) from the US.  They told me they had started a blog for their travels and it is the raddest thing -> http://www.outlawsummer.com

CHECK IT OUT.

I met A&R in what is now one of my favourite places in the entire world.  A small town called “Glencolmcille” with a population of 200 people.  A must see for those of you who prefer less people, and more natural beauty.  The locals are wonderful and the sights are breathtaking, so please – if you’re in Ireland – make it up there.

I’ve been following their adventures since I met them, and I realized that this is the kind of project I’d like to try.  Combining a love for taking photos, and a helpless addiction to spontaneous exploration, here goes my attempt at sharing some of my favourite shots.

Because this is my first blog EVER, I thought it fit to give a shout out to Anna & Rachel for inspiring me when we met, and motivating me to try something like this on my own. You two are very special people, and I wish you all the best on your future experiences!
