I was strolling around the city one day when I decided to snap some pics of the surrounding buildings. The architecture is very gothic, very fitting for a city that is known for its Gothic culture, especially in architecture and literature.
One interesting fact is that the author of Dracula, Bram Stoker, was himself a Dubliner, exploring the town while writing his masterpiece. James Joyce is another name that comes to mind for famous authors. Rody Dowell is a more recent name too, but the city is home to some of the most unique and talented authors we have seen.
Now, back to the building architecture, it is such a departure from what I see in my hometown of Kalamazoo, Michigan. The buildings here are historically old but symbols of Dublin’s historical significance and culture. It was just a leisurely stroll through the heart of the city but Dublin is such a beautiful place. Every day you encounter something new, fresh, that opens your mind and eyes to this city. I can finally say that I am adjusting to my new home for the next 3 months. My travel plans are still being finalized so more abroad trips are to come. Stay tuned!
