So last week on the 1st of December I celebrated my 11 year anniversary in Dublin. My way of celebrating was to get a 7ft Christmas tree that takes up half the space in my living room and to decorate it with Mr. FFID while drinking a Christmas craft beer (Santa Paws by Brew Dog).
Last year I wrote a blog post on how I love Dublin but this year I wanted to do something different. I've been here a while and because I've always known I would never leave I actually haven't done or seen many things in the Irish capital. I'm not a tourist anymore, this is my city but I feel like I should explore it a little more. So, I've decided to compile a Dublin bucket list.
I'm hoping this will come in handy whenever I'm not really inspired at the weekend and unsure about what to do. I'll be able to go back to this list and hopefully tick off everything in 2016, that's my little challenge! So have a look at the list and let me know if you have any suggestions on what I should add. I've also included some of the things I've already done but I'm sure I forgot some obvious ones.
