Our 2nd Dublin Home

Our Internet connection went live today which means that we’re now completely settled in our new apartment in the Christchurch area of Dublin. We’ve been here for two weeks now and we are very happy with our decision to move across town. I have added some photos to the gallery so you can get a […]

Internet pending… still…

We’ve been kept busy the last few weeks with moving apartments. We’ve moved across town to a slightly older but more ‘homey’ apartment right in the heart of old Dublin. We look out the bedroom windows onto a sea of red brick and out our lounge windows to Christchurch Cathedral just across the road. Its […]

Back in Dublin

I arrived back in Dublin safely on Sunday afternoon following 40 hours of travel from Sydney via Auckland (5hrs), LA (1hr) and Heathrow (another 5hrs). The best part about all the travel is that I haven’t really had any jetlag, I was back at work at 9:30 on Monday morning, and I’ve been back to […]

Update from Dublin

What a busy first week back in Dublin it’s been! I had such a fun time in New Zealand. I think it goes without saying that I loved seeing all our friends again and treasured the time we got to spend with our families. I only wish we got have stayed for 3 weeks more! […]

In the sky again

Starting tommorrow we’re on the move again! This coming week I’m in Austria on the annual Google EMEA Engineering Conference and then the Ski Trip. Both of which are fairly action packed and tiring from what I can make out. I get back to Dublin at 6pm on Friday evening. On Saturday morning at 9am […]

Its a long way to Tipperary…

Hello from the Emerald Isle! It’s St Patrick’s Day today, a national holiday and a day off for us. As I look out the window I can see lots of blue sky and sunshine, a good start to the day. We’ll be off soon to see the St Patrick’s Day parade and to join in […]

Our Neighbourhood

I’ve been watching the construction of what I suspected was a new bridge over the river as I walk to work each day for the last 6 months and this week they’ve finally put up signs confirming that it is actually a bridge that they’re building. Unfortunately it’s not going to be finished until 2010, […]

6 months in Dublin

Hello all. I realised today it’s been quite a while since I wrote anything here. So, I hope to bring things up to speed now and I really will try to keep up-to-date better in future! We’ve been in Dublin for half a year already now. I’m surprised to think that we’ve been here that […]

Luxembourg, a teaser

Wow, over a month since we last let you know what we were up to! We’re getting slack, sorry! Anyway, it’s 12:42am and we’ve just walked in the door after a brief weekend trip (36hrs) to Luxembourg, which seems like a very nice city. A good blend of old and new Europe. We’ve got heaps […]

The highs and lows of life in Dublin

Thought I would blog a few of the things I like and dislike about our new home city. I like: Taking the train south to the beach on the weekends. Ireland is small – about 1/3 the size of NZ which means its also only a short drive or train trip to go basically anywhere […]
