Week 1: Couldn't Be More in Love With Ireland!

Week one (June 3rd-June 10th): After traveling over 15 hours I have finally made it to Dublin, Ireland. The first morning when we all arrived we went and had a traditional Irish breakfast. You may ask what a traditional Irish breakfast is. Well the breakfast consists of bacon rashers, pork sausages, fried eggs, white pudding, black pudding, toast, and a fried tomato. During our first day we walked around a toured Dublin. We saw St. Stephen’s Green, Trinity College, the famous Temple Bar area, and did a hop on hop off bus tour. As the week continued we traveled to the Little Museum of Dublin, the Guinness Storehouse, Teeling Whiskey Distillery, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, and the National Library of Dublin. During the first week we also took numerous trips outside of Dublin. First we traveled to Howth and walked along the cliffs where the rain could not ruin the hike and the spectacular views. The following weekend we headed to Wicklow and Glendalough. This is where they filmed P.S. I Love You and we sat on the famous bridge. We also saw St. Kevin’s church and a waterfall. The first week in Dublin has been amazing and I have fallen in love with this country all ready. I cannot wait to see what the other three weeks have to hold.
