The Winding Stair

Last weekend I payed a visit to one of my favourite places in Dublin.

On the North Quay, The Winding Stair... bookshop turned restaurant combines my favourite obsessions...food and literature...

I gasped when I saw this in my reader. Oh Dublin, homesickness sometimes comes out of nowhere!

I gasped, too! I spent most of my free minutes reading in this lovely spot while studying in Dublin. Thank you for bringing me back, if only for a moment. It’s a treasure.

Abigail…Glad it brought back memories!!!
Jane…home sickness…emigration sickness.. I guess it’s hard to be 100% happy in one place when you’ve tried a few!..I feel like flying at the moment…
