In 2019, I won an award called REB Award for Teaching Excellence and part of how I proposed to go to Ireland to study the music, explore my ancestry, and photograph the beautiful landscapes. Then, I would spend a week in Amsterdam admiring the canals, seeing improv comedy, and observing art. I plan to share the photos from the different phases of my trip. I spend the first three days in Dublin. Highlights were walking along the River Liffey, hearing authentic Irish music, seeing Dublin Castle, and of course trying out locally made Guinness!
