Killarney - Ireland, 2012

# Posted by Joel Dixon at 05/10/2012 08:23:42

I have mentioned on a few of my blog entries that I was only visiting a particular city for the one single thing. For example, I only really put Porto on the itinerary so I could sample a delicious sandwich (which was both delicious, and a sandwich). That being said, I still stayed in Porto for two nights sampling further cuisine and checking out the city which I enjoyed. When it came to Killarney however, I was literally only there for Dan and Leonie's wedding - flying in an hour before the ceremony was to start and flying out once I finished partying at the reception.

As the cabbie drove me towards the bed and breakfast, I noticed that Dan and Leonie picked an excellent location for their wedding. Killarney itself was very picturesque and the Cahernane House Hotel was extraordinary. It's a shame I wasn't staying longer in the town - I think it would have been a great place to get in some relaxation before a final month of travelling.

Tom
No matter how nude I made myself, nor how widely I left the curtains open, I was never visited by a single Peeping Tom. Which is a good thing, of course cough

Before too long I was sitting and listening to Dan and Leonie pledging themselves to one another - and although short and sweet, Dan managed to put in some great character with his enthusiastic answers of "yep". The speeches were equally aww-inspiring, Dan's having the perfect mix of humour and sweetness and Bres' being hilarious but with enough feels thrown in. The last time I heard Bres making a speech was when he drunkenly stumbled through an acknowledgement of Dykesey's 21st - what a difference 10 years can make.

IStache
I want to marry Dan's moustache - it effortlessly illustrates the dichotomy of chaos and order

The reception dinner was delicious and I was put onto a great table with fun and flowing conversation. Afterwards the dancing begun and while it took a while for the alcohol to disable my inhibitions - before too long I was out on the dance floor once more (making an ass of myself as expected and hopefully appreciated by all). I had an incredible time with great friends - but managed to Phantom away and grab some sleep before my early morning flight to Amsterdam.

TeaBiatch
Chris is both, in equal parts and at the same time, the classiest and least classy man I know

Dance
The dance floor before things started heating up, and ties were fashioned into headbands (ok, so that was just me)

Congratulations Dan and Leonie
