Dublin: The city of colorful doors and hidden stories

Such a long title! But yes, what I really like about Dublin is its colorful doors and hidden stories behind them.

Ah, those colorful doors~. Just follow them and imagine that every familyย behind that door has its story,ย and the color of every door tells a story, some are bright, some are black, some are shiny, some are just white.

This city is uncomplicated, simple as its people are. It’s the city of James Joyce’s Dubliners, humble, kind and modest. It feels like the people from the book are still there, and those colorful doors hide their stories.

And not to forget, Dublin likes to drink! It is soberย at afternoons and drunk at nights. And believe me, one can never feel the real spirit of Dublin while sober! ๐Ÿ˜€

So have a good drink here, create your own story while drunk, andย hide it in Dublin. And as years pass, this city collects stories of people, known and unknown, meaningful and meaningless, and never tells them, so that visitors like me could look at the doors and imagine and imagine…

  1. These are such beautiful pictures! I can’t wait until I make it to Ireland and get to take in its beauty. I think you did a great job of showing me what it looks and feels like in Ireland ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Thanks Jess! When in Ireland, don’t miss another beautiful city in the west coast – Galway (I live there, so if you have any questions, just ask;) I’ll write another blogpost about Galway soon.
