Curiosities of Dublin !!

I was lucky to be able to visit Dublin! and I like to bring new text and older new pictures to the blog with this post. I have several posts on Dublin and always a memorable visit with still good friends. For many  years heard of Dublin  ,in fact used to lived near a neighborhood that was call Dublin for the many Irish immigrants there. This was back in Perth Amboy, New Jersey USA.( see posts) . For now, let me tell you about my curiosities of Dublin !!

I have mentioned that took the airport bus to my hotel and tried the tramway but had shown no pictures! Therefore, here is a bit on them with pictures! I tried the public transport as like to tried everything at least once. Once in Dublin, took the airlink express bus to city center. Easy and convenient as it drops you off in the main areas of Dublin central.  The bus was no. 747. The is the Dubliln Bus webpage: https://www.dublinbus.ie/

As for the tramway, I took a quick trip on the Green Line from Ranelagh to O’Connell just for the thrill and experience of it; the LUAS tramway of Dublin webpage: https://luas.ie/luas-green-line-stops/

No time for a show but did passed in front of the wonderful Ambassador Theatre at Upper O’Connell Street; this is a like a roman amphitheater shape really nice.

I came across a nice building that is the Gate Theatre, founded in 1928; another wonderful architecturally done place of fun right on by the city center and O’Connell Street and Parnell Square.

Our Pizza Huts of Luxembourg!!!

This is a memorable stop for us for many years and one of the nice places to eat simple family meal in Luxembourg City. I have many stories here with the family all fun and nicely remembered. See my several posts on the country in my blog. As I was in pizzas, let me continue with our story of Pizza Hut in Luxembourg!

I have gone as far as Trier for Pizza Hut (see post) ,but let me tell you the brief story on Luxembourg. We have been coming here for many years and even just to have lunch!  One of our must stop is the Place d’Armes in city center of the upper town of Luxembourg city.

Several years back,, we were looking at Pizza Hut in France but they were not making our favorite from back in the old home of Florida USA. That is the Pepperoni Lovers pizza!!! And by chance while walking in the wonderful Place d’Armes there we encounter the famous pizza at the restaurant there! Voilà a love at first sight, we came back even for lunch here and each time visiting the country we came by it for several years. My dear late wife Martine just was so happy to come and enjoy it with the boys. Memories forever, and glad able to have written in my blog.

For further memories, we ,also, driving into the country stop by for lunches at these. Pizza Hut , Rue de Colmar-Berg (road A7) turn into the Topaze shopping center and is to the right of the picture below. This is in Mersch, This restaurant opened in 2012, has its own entrance, on the car park side, which also makes it accessible on Sunday afternoons, when the shopping center is closed.  And, also on another visit we came to Pizza Hut Beggen 154, rue de Beggen (road A7) You will have a nice 70-seat veranda, a veritable oasis of greenery and light just a few minutes from the city center.

Our Pizza Hut of Trier!!

This is not your typical German restaurant far from it, but going back to my sons’s roots and growing up going to Pizza Hut, we have followed them all over Europe, A simple memorable new world spot we love anywhere. We have come to Trier several times over the years, becoming our favorite city in Germany. I am updating this post for the memories ‘s sake on text , links, and pictures, Hope you enjoy the post that brings many happy moments for my family, and hopefully ,yours tooWe have come back here since arriving in France, first from Versailles and now from Pluvigner in the Morbihan breton! In Trier you parked and then you walk!

Pizza Hut, was our favorite pizza chain in Florida USA , where my boys were born, and as said followed it here in Europe. When we first came to Trier , we did as we always do, walk the beat and see as much as possible on foot. Passing by it we saw the Pizza Hut there and now each time we make an effort to eat there while in town. See my other posts on Pizza Hut in other countries,such as Luxembourg Ville!!

The Pizza Hut  in Trier is located at Brotstrasse 40. This is city center district, full of shops and restos/bars and very close to the quant square of Johann Philipps StraBe. Wonderful area for walks and sightseeing or window shopping ! My boys arriving on the right of pic below!!
