This text is from an old blog post I wrote nine months after I’d visited Dublin with two of my friends:

“I miss Dublin! This city was so beautiful and so lovely. I miss the vibe of this city, the optimism, the peace, the people that belong there, their sense of
humor, the way they talked.
I can only recall good memories. On my 21st birthday we ate cake, drank tea, visited the city, shopped at Forever 21 and ate very good pizza. We laughed, we talked and walked a lot. We visited the Wicklow Mountains. Spend the day in a bus with strangers from all over the world. The wind almost blew us off a cliff. We walked around in beautiful woods and the scenery of the movie Leap Year. We saw at least a hundred colored doors and we met Oscar Wilde.”
