When it comes to travel, I think nothing of jumping on the first flight of the day, visiting a country, seeing some of the sights, have dinner somewhere, stay the night and then take the last flight back home on the following day. Sometimes when you don’t get a lot of days off to travel you have to learn to maximise the little amount of time you have! In today’s “48 Hours in…” guide I share my tried and tested itinerary on how to spend 2 Days in Dublin, Ireland. Including cool things to see and do, where to eat and where I stayed!
I thought I’d share my favourite thing I’ve done in Dublin, Ireland! If you’re after something that doesn’t involve alcohol or museums but is something a bit more active and challenging, yes, right in the city centre, I think I’ve found it! Located at the Grand Canal Dock (roughly a 25 minute walk from the main centre) is Wakedock, a cable wake boarding park! What is wake boarding? Think snowboarding, mixed with water skiing and you’re not far off! I first learnt to wakeboard behind a speed boat, cable parks eliminate the boat. The tow rope is attached to a cable that runs above the dock and uses a control box to stop, start and control it’s speed.
This is the first post in a series all about the British recipes I will be taking with me when I emigrate to America! I can hardly take a whole fish and chip shop with me, and lets face it, it just wouldn’t be the same unless it’s wrapped in paper and you’re sitting on a sea wall! But there are some English dishes I can replicate once I’m there! It’s going to be a learning curve for me, I like to think I’m pretty good at making cakes, but I’m going to learn how to cook English meals from scratch too! But first up, I’ll stick to what I know – Chocolate Guinness Cake! (Yes I’m aware Guinness isn’t technically British!!!) Originally a Nigella Lawson recipe which I’ve tweaked slightly to suit my tastes. Mainly more beer and a little less sugar!
