We spent St. Patrick’s day in Dublin, which was packed. We woke up early and left Howth to get a good spot for the parade, and we found one along a fence. We got McDonald’s for breakfast and waited for the parade to start. We had to wait two and a half hours for the parade and then it took another hour and a half to go past. The parade was pretty cool. They had some cool floats for it. We bought some hoodies a couple days before so we would have green things to wear. I got a Temple Bar one which is very nice and comfy. After the parade we walked to a bus station, which was a good distance away, and meet up with our friends who had flown in from Alaska. We started walking to their hotel when Sylvia started throwing up. She threw up for about fifteen minutes, but then was able to walk to the metro station and we took the train to their hotel. We stayed there for a long time till Sylvia felt better and was able to go home. Me and Annabelle stayed at our friends hotel room that night and got pizza from a place from across the street. When we woke up we walked down to a little shop and got some sausage rolls and coffee. The mocha I had was amazing. We walked to the Dublin Zoo, which was very close by, and went in. The zoo was surprisingly good. The Siberan White Tiger display was closed, but most of the exhibits were open. The zoo was a very nice zoo. They made the monkeys hunt for their food. We watched baby elephants play for a long time, but finally had to leave to look at other things. They had Red Pandas which look kinda like a raccoon but red. After the zoo, we got some pizza and fries at the café at the zoo and waited for my mom and dad to show up. Sylvia had to stay at the camper with Jack and Jennah because she was still sick. We met up with my parents and went back to my friends hotel. We hung out there for a while then my mom, my dad, Annabelle and her friend went back to the camper for the night and I stayed at the hotel. We went to the pub next door and got food. I had a massive burger which was awesome and my friend got curry. We went back to the hotel and me and my friend stayed up late. There was a festival going on in Howth so we went there. It was the Prawn festival. Prawns are these lobster/shrimp thing. The festival was fun and there was live music there. Me and my friend got apple soda, which I had been looking for for a while. Our friends left later that day. When we were driving out of Dublin, my friend texted me saying they didn’t make their flight and that they were in a hotel at the airport. So we turned our camper around and went to them. We camped in the hotel parking lot and my mom got a bottle of wine to bring up. They ordered room service which was very fancy. They bought tickets to Iceland for the next day so we didn’t see them after that. Dublin was great and I’m glad my friend came.
