Wow. What can I say. So much has happened and changed in the last two months. It’s already October and I’m in awe of how quickly time is passing. I can finally cross ‘Seeing Ireland’ off my bucket list! Technically I haven’t seen all of Ireland but I’m coming close! So far I’ve gone to Clare, Belfast, and Dublin (obviously). I’m in love with Dublin. By far it’s the best city I have been to in my life. (Edinburgh is next month so I’m sure it will change) From the cobblestone streets, to the Hansel and Gretel bakery, Trinity college, and the dancing leprechaun on the corner of Molly Malone, it is all brilliant. I can’t get enough. I’ve learned so much here. I think I have grown up too. Before I came, I would never walk alone in a city at even half past 9. Now I can say I’ve missed a tram twice that I’ve had to walk through three towns (in which I’ve never been to) back home through the pouring rain at 12 in the morning. Not an ideal situation but adventurous.. for someone like me.
I have also met so many wonderful people! It makes missing my family more bearable, because now I have a temporary family. My host dad brought me home a huge poster filled with castles in Ireland because he knows how much I love them. My host mum brings me home scones because she knows how much I love them. And the girls I’m minding tell me everyday how much they love me. (Okay enough with the sappy.)
But really, I’m having the time of my life. I’ve made friends from around the world, booked a flight for Scotland, seen the cliffs of Moher, and I’ve drank Guinness. And there’s so much more to come. :)
