Heading to Poland via Ireland

Been very busy planning my getaway. I leave in an hour from SC in the USA to visit with friends living in Ireland. They are Polish citizens. Then, I fly to Poland and do some work on my genealogy. Mainly seeing the ancestral areas of my grandparents.

Hope to take lots of pictures. It's been eight years since I first visited Poland and I am looking forward to it!

Cool Softsong,

The weather is not so bad here in Krakow about 25 degree but Ireland is full of doom and gloom, they are just coming out of a very wet summer and into a recession (ooohhhh! don't mention the "R" word there), so have pity and buy everyone a round.

I love it when people try to find their roots, it is an adventure. One I am sure you will enjoy.
Tale care and have the luck of the Irish,

(I am Irish living in Poland)

Thanks SeanBM,

I am in Dublin now! The weather began cloudy, then misty rain, then sunshine, pouring rain, and back to sunshine with a rainbow!

Amazing place, I am enjoying it. Still a bit jet-lagged. Awww.....I appreciate your encouragement about finding my roots.

I'll write more and post pictures when back. I'm on a borrowed PC right now.

All seasons in one day.

I recommend going to see, hear and taste some Irish traditional music in the bars, if you don't like Guinness, try it with black current.

Hhhhmmm.....Guinness.... hhhmmmmm....

I am from Dublin.

Thanks for the tip, Sean.....I would love to hear some traditional Irish music. The country definitely has soul. Black current. O.K. Will give it a whirl....

Lovely city, I do feel at home in it. I am staying in Lucan with some friends.

I've been back a few weeks now, but the memories of my trip to Ireland and Poland are still fresh in my mind. Been busy since my return, but would like to share some pictures now. Let's see if this works.

OK....that was The Viking Church in Dublin. Not sure how many photos I can put in one message, so here's a link to the rest:
