Belfast, Northern Ireland Pt. 1.

I spent a couple days in Belfast last week and now I want to move there for good. It’s such an infinitely charming place, and it has such a fascinating national history, and the people are utterly delightful, and Guinness tastes so much better in Ireland.

  1. Love the shot from inside the bus…

  2. 1) I love your blue jacket! 2) Is that a whoopie pie you’re eating 3) I love all these pictures! Jealous!
    Hope you’re having an amazing time.

  3. Can you explain the third to last photo? It looks interesting!

    • To make a really long and fascinating story of Northern Ireland’s history very short and succinct, there have been intense religious/political tensions in Belfast since the 1960s (Google search “The Troubles in Northern Ireland” if you’re interested in looking into it further) and there are a lot of murals in the mixed (Catholic AND Protestant) part of town that designate whether you’re in Loyalist or Unionist territory. They’re beautiful works of art, and yet they symbolize sectarianism. It’s very fascinating!

  4. Eep! I live here Monday to Friday for University! I just started following your blog…strange 🙂 Beautiful pictures x
