An Afternoon at St. George’s Market

One of my biggest travel recommendations? Go to the weekend markets. It’s probably one of my favorite things to poke around and do in each city. You really get a feel for the local wares and food. There’s always a good hustle and bustle about them, and you often find locals shopping for fresh produce and cheese.

Bryce and I shopped about and tried any and every sample we could get our hands on. We tried some fudge (which we bought), some curry dips, and very lovely cheeses.

Side note – after all of this traveling, you’d think I’d be cultured (pun intended) on various cheeses, but I’m really not. I’d love to take some sort of Cheese Appreciation class where I can learn about the different kinds of cheeses and what I like. Like wine tasting but for cheese. That’s a thing, right?

We eventually settled on a spicy Mexican chicken burrito for lunch and listened to live music playing in the middle of the stalls. A little bit of Fleetwood Mac, and I’m a happy camper.


We then headed over to Marks and Spencer where Bryce exchanged his euros into pounds (Northern Ireland is a part of the UK thus the pound). They had their Christmas decorations up for sell, so we poked around that department for a little bit. In theory I like the idea of spending Christmas in the southern hemisphere, but I’m pretty sure I’m going to miss a cold Christmas.

After having that fabulous hot chocolate a few days ago, I really wanted some more. We stopped off at this fancy chocolate store that also sold hot chocolate, and oh my gosh. Death by chocolate. I basically went into a food coma for the rest of the day.
