Standing In Glasshouses

In keeping with trying to get out more, I decided to go on some adventures with our Italian student while she's still here. She's too shy to go around on her own and I have no problem being a learn as you go tour guide. Last time we headed out to Temple Bar and this time we hit up the National Botanic Gardens after months of planning to go but never quite getting around to it.

There wasn't exactly much on bloom at our visit, except those flowers and plants in the greenhouses but it made for a lovely day out. We first joined one of the garden tours and visited the Viking quarters and gardens and saw how they would've lived and farmed for food. The Botanic Garden itself is surrounded by large open areas of grass perfect for picnics or cloud watching or general relaxing with friends or family. I'm a little sad we didn't think to bring a picnic with us but maybe next time. I am ever grateful for the beauty of nature and love being surrounded by it therefore our time spent there was highly refreshing and fulfilling for me. Emily, our Italian girl really loved it too, she wanted to see everything but there was too much to be seen in one day.

Due to the large amount of pictures in this post I told myself I'd try and keep it short and also I've gotta head to work soon ( no rest for the wicked especially when they're as broke as I am!). Before I let you go, I'd like to apologize for the fact that this post was supposed to go out last night however juggling the extra hours at work this week, I hadn't had time to fully write and schedule it. Also the results of those exams I was stressing about so much a few months ago came out, and I passed! And of course results night also loosely translates to party night so it's no wonder I didn't have time last night after coming home from work to finish the post before hitting up the town with my friends. Monday the college offers will go out and I am seriously praying that I get my first choice because I cannot wait to be in Uni already! 

I hope you enjoyed reading this post as much I enjoyed writing it. Have you been on any adventures lately or have any coming up? I'd love to know,

Till next time my pretties xxx

  1. YAY! Congrats on passing! That is definitely a good reason to post a bit late, you need to celebrate! :)

    The Botanical Garden looks beautiful! I love the succulents :) If I go back to Ireland I'll definitely have to check it out, especially in the summer. This weekend I have a bit of an adventure, though it's an annual, familiar one. My whole family are going to our hometown and spending the weekend on boats and so on! I'm excited :)

    1. Thank you Erin! I was and still am completely over the moon! I've two more weeks till I start and I can barely wait.

      Yes definitely check out the botanic gardens! It would be so beautiful in the summer too, definetely a lot more to see.

      Family trips like yours make me so happy and a tad jealous if I was being honest. I can just picture all the fun antics you'll get up to! Hope it was as good as you wanted!
