Vacation recap.

One of the reasons it's been a while since I've written is because it feels like I've given a vacation recap to everyone already. But, in case you managed to slip through the cracks, or — gasp! — you're a stranger reading this, I guess I haven't managed to recap it for you.

Iceland
  • nice and cool, but rained a little every day
  • small, quiet, quaint, just my size/style/pace
  • otherworldly scenery out in the country
  • the people have a quirky sense of humour
  • we ate this and this and this (whoops... actually this)
Glasgow
  • alright, I was there less than 24 hours
  • King Tut's is a great place to see several bands
  • bars with numbered tables are strange, but it works
Dublin
  • nice and cool, but it rained a little every day
  • lots of tourists, but they weren't too annoying
  • Gaelic Football is an awesome sport
  • tourists don't quite take over, but they get close
Galway
  • nice and cool, but it rained a little every day
  • the eponymous Bay is absolutely beautiful
  • a bit touristy, but not really annoyingly so
  • next time I'm going out to see the Cliffs of Moher
Brooklyn
  • effin' HOTTER than an effin' MOFO
  • you can spend $43 on a single beer in Park Slope
  • the pizza's pretty good, to be honest
So, that's about it. Out of the 15 days I was gone, I consumed alcohol on 14 of them. Now that's a vacation, folks.
