Dublin here we come..

Yesterday, my family and I went down to Dublin for the day (a total of 102 miles driving each way).
I always wanted to go back to Henry St.. We  had expected the old Chinese tea room to be there but sadly it was gone......There is also a good shopping centre there with a huge variety of shops. My favourite is the Pagoda gift store that sells all sorts of unique eastern products - two blocks away is a fast food shop, selling burgers and hot food in vending machines.    Then, there is the colourful outdoor fruit stalls lining the street off the shopping centre - I love walking through it.
My boyfriend and I had previously visited Dublin three times, I proposed to him the 2nd visit (Valentine's Day) while we stayed at the North Star City near the train station. 

We passed this viaduct on the way to Dublin.

Leona Lewis, Belfast , 1 July 2010 (Labyrinth Tour)

My other half and I went to see Leona Lewis in concert last night.   She was AMAZING!!!    To be honest, I always preferred Snow Patrol's version of 'Run' instead of Leona's but after seeing her perform last night, I can only say she was stunning!

Leona is a pop and R & B singer, she became famous in 2006 after winning the X Factor (British Singing talent TV show).
