Yes, I'm opening this post with a quotation by this irish guy, John Banville, who sounds not too shabby of a novelist (at least according to Wikipedia and Nabokov). So, why really? It's raining all the time, it's expensive as hell (we're assuming that it's really expensive there, like 6€ for a pint) and does… Continue reading “I live in Dublin, God knows why.”
It's official: the world is coming to an end! Even though it seems that every week there's someone announcing the end of the world somewhere, this is not the case. I don't believe any of them, but a whole week of sunshine in Dublin? Well, that's something guys, I tell ya. So in disbelief of… Continue reading Seagull way? Almost, I’m off to see Galway.
