A day in the city.

I love little days in the city. Today was totally unplanned and it was really a spur of the moment kind of thing, but I think they're the best. Cork is really a beautiful city. It's quite small, but if you can be kept busy for hours with all the shops and restaurants in side streets that are scattered all around the place.

Cork is only one of the 5 cities that Miami Ink opened a shop in, which is pretty cool. The store is called Love Hate, and it's owned by Ami James and the Miami Ink crew. It's really cool how, out of all the cities in the world, they pick Cork to open a store in. Not even Dublin! We went to have a look at the store at it's opening day. Ami was there but we didn't get a chance to see him sadly. The store looks amazing, and the design and interior of it is really amazing. I will definitely be going there for my first tattoo, hopefully some time this year.

We stumbled upon this small little restaurant in a small alleyway in the middle of Cork called 14a. It was very small but cosy at the same time. Inside there were lights dangling from the ceiling and candles scattered around the place. It was really nice and relaxing. I ordered the chicken goujans with salad and fries. It was very nice and extremely easy to eat. The salad was fresh and the fries were crunchy - what more could you want?
