Doctor Search!

I am throwing this out there to anyone who can help me in my search. I need to find a good "Girl" doctor. I really don't like the one that I have gone to in the past, and on top of that he practiced in American Fork. Where I live in Salt Lake I am about ten minutes from two hospitals! I guess if the doctor is amazing then I am willing to drive to Utah County, but you can't tell me that there aren't any good doctors in Salt Lake County. There has to be at least one! So, if anyone can recommend a great doctor in Salt Lake I would really appreciate it! I have been looking, and asking around but unfortunately I haven't come up with anything yet! Please help!

Okay, I have to admit, I loved Ireland! It is the most beautiful country! Ireland is the kind of country where everyone is so incredibly nice and helpful, and you can't beat the accents! As I am sure you can tell, this was the highlight of the trip for me.
We landed in Dublin and spent our first night in Kilkenny. We headed down the coast and spent our next night in Kinsale. At night we would go to the local pubs, it was awesome because we had the chance to listen to traditional and some not so traditional music. We spent the next two days in Dingle where we saw and did so many awesome things. There is so much to see and do there. Some highlights of the Dingle area for me were: the fort on the ferry hill, going on the dolphin boat, dinner in the pubs, and walking around the town late at night.
We then headed to Galway for the next couple of days. Galway was a fun city, it had a very college town feel, it was much more touristy. After two days in Galway we headed back to Swords, where we stayed and flew home the next day. Ireland was absolutely beautiful, I can't wait to go back and do the northern half now! I have a lot of pictures below!

Prague, Finally!

I am feeling really guilty, I have been back for about a week and a half from my trip, and I am just finally getting to posting! My trip was awesome! We saw and did so many great things in both Prague and Ireland. My next post will be all about Ireland. (I won't wait another week and a half)
The Czech Republic is a beautiful country! We had some pretty interesting experiences there. The language barrier wasn't too bad, meaning that quite a few people spoke English, not that we could even begin to understand Czech. Occasionally it was a bit of struggle, but we made due for the most part. We found that the people in Prague are pretty indifferent to tourists. They aren't outwardly rude, but they weren't incredibly accommodating either. With the exception of the man who ran our bed and breakfast, he was amazing! The food in Prague is not anything spectacular, they are into lots of grease and mystery meats! They are really big into sausages, too which I can't really understand. Prague was a gorgeous city, there are so many different types of architecture, it was very impressive. Warning, there are a lot of pictures here!
