The capital is at a standstill again as Dublin Bus have embarked on the second of their three planned 48-hour strikes. 

With commuters being forced to squeeze on to crowded rail services or face a lengthy walk into town, some may be starting to consider what their alternatives are. 

These employees at Dublin-based creative agency Company of Huskies have found an amazing method of traveling into work without having to deal with traffic jams, angry drivers or indecisive cyclists. 

Together with instructors at Dublin-based adventure company Big Style, the gang recently embarked on a 'Paddle to Work scheme' from West Dublin, all the way down the River Liffey towards the East Link Toll Bridge by Dublin Port.

"We woke up early in the morning and met near Chapelizod. Our office is located at the Eastlink Toll Bridge so the whole two-hour journey took us right through Dublin at morning rush-hour. It was amazing to see the city from such a different perspective and many commuters had their phones out taking pictures," said one of the paddlers. 

Some of the pictures are amazing and perfectly capture the tranquil tone of the trip - a bit of a contrast to your average stressful commute into Dublin!

How cool is that?

With another bus strike tomorrow, as well as next Friday and Saturday, we know how we'd like to get into work.
