We're Taking a Vacation

Guess what? Tonight we're heading out of town for a nice long vacation!  We've been talking about doing this ever since my husband graduated from grad school in June. We wanted to celebrate him finishing the program, and we just wanted some time off to relax. And we're finally doing it!

Our first stop will be Nice. The Cote d'Azur! We spent some time in Nice on our honeymoon, and we've been dying to go back ever since. I can't wait to shop at the big outdoor market in Vieux Nice, cook dinner in the little Home Away apartment we're renting, sip on chilled Rose wine, soak up some sunshine on the pebbly beaches, and explore some of the little seaside towns surrounding the city.

Since we're flying on Aer Lingus, an Irish airline, we also scheduled a multi-day layover in Dublin on our return flight. We'll be spending three days poking around the city, which will be a first for us! I'm at least hoping to see The Long Room at Trinity College's Old Library, some of the beautiful Georgian doors (including Oscar Wilde's childhood home), and some Irish pubs to enjoy a few pints of Guiness.

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend, and I'll see you back here in a couple of weeks!
