A few days ago I turned 32. All in all, it's been a much better birthday time than last year, as those who know me or have been reading my blog since then will know. I've got my book launching in about two and a half months, and my wife is pregnant with twins.
It's been a good year. And I figured I'd do something a little different to celebrate my birthday this year.
The Dublin Tall Ships Festival is on this weekend. The Tall Ship Races are held every year and always feature a town along Ireland's coast. It's been a couple of years since they were last in Dublin and after we missed the last one, my wife and I knew we wouldn't want to miss it again.
This Saturday we're heading into the city to check it out, look at the awesome ships and try food from the stalls. We're meeting people there and then heading back home for some chilling out and possibly boardgames in the evening.
I'm really looking forward to it. Just hope the weather holds up! Expect to see pictures next week.
