I'm at peace when I'm in danger

Hello everyone,
It's no news that I have a huge problem when it comes to being consistent. We won't get into that though.
So this post is just a quick update on what I've been up to.
So a few days ago I was talking to my friend Chris, he said 'oh yeah, I saw that you went to Dublin cause of your job. What is it that you do? Do I know what you do?'. Not even I knew the answer to that. However, I have been working for the same company for two years now, a lot for someone with such commitment issues like myself.
I was sent to the Google HQ in Dublin to learn some more about sales among other business related strategies, as currently I am an SME for Google Workspace here in Guatemala. I was only supposed to be there for 3 days but I decided to stay a little longer so that I could wander around the city.  I must say that I wish I had more time because Ireland is really beautiful and had so much to see, I will definitely be going back.
I've traveled alone before but never this amount of distance, I had never felt so liberated and away from everything.  I remember my last day in Dublin I felt really brave simply by the fact that I left my hotel without a map, wifi, or just about anyone to explain me where I was headed because not even I knew what I wanted to do, so I just walked and walked. I know that I wasn't away for too long but I missed my boyfriend the most, it's good to be back home specially for the holidays, so Merry Christmas to you all.
Finally, here are some pictures from my trip, please do keep in mind that a lot all of them were taken with my iPhone so don't expect much.  I'll try to post recommendations based on places I went to, to be honest the ones I liked the most were actually quite unexpected.  Hope you guys enjoy =)
View from the plane, heading to Dublin coming from Newark. Most streets looked like this in Dublin, this is just around the corner of Temple Bar, in Crown Alley. While being headed to St Stephens Green I bumped into this ivy covered building I really really loved, I wish they were more places like this all over everywhere.
While trying to make my way back to the train station in Tara Street, I bumped into this huge thing called The Spire.  Being the most unorganized person ever, obviously I didn't know anything about this monument because I had no plans as to what I should see in Dublin. Clearly I was surprised when I saw it and behaved as a tourist: took plenty of sunset photos of it (no shame). This is O'neills your typical Irish pub, I honestly didn't go to a lot of touristy places such as Temple Bar, but I did liked the setting of this place and their patio.This is just outside Zozimus Bar in Dublin, I found this place when I got lost  while walking around Anne St South, thought it looked really cool.  This is Bray, it's only a couple of stations away from Ireland, you just need to take the Dart and you'll be good to go. They have a flea market with just about anything random, and the cutest aquarium (National Sea Life Centre).
