    It’s been a few weeks now since I’ve been living in Florence, and I’m finally finding the confidence to buy produce from the imposing Italian women at the Central Market. Though daunting figures in the bustling market, they are more than humble enough to dig through my wallet for the proper change and teach me a few slang terms here and there. Considering it’s August, and …

    The weather has finally begun to cool off in the mornings, allowing my roommate and I to enjoy runs throughout the city before class. Florence is bustling despite the early hours, and though my heart is happy for the exercise, my lungs do not appreciate the 7 am cigarette fumes we run through. Along with the cooler weather comes more energy for basic cleaning and chores; …

    My four month venture to Florence began with a fever of 103.5 and delirious bouts through the Frankfurt airport. Thankfully, my mom came along and kept me on a strict regimen of Advil, Tylenol, and Sudaphed. We arrived in the city early Thursday morning, stumbled out of the cab, checked into our hotel and immediately began an exploration of Florence. By noon I succeeded in getting us completely lost as …

    Well, its been a juggling act trying to get internet access and enough time on the internet to email family and friends and to write this journal. I normally don't blog, ever, but I believe that when it comes to programs like this if there is the opportunity to share you should with people who may go through similar experiences as yourself.  I'm having a marvelous time here in Salvador! I …

    My trip to the Whitsundays was amazing!!! Going there was seriously like being in paradise! It was truly amazing! We left on Thursday and headed out to Hamilton Island. It took about 2 and half hours to get there, so it wasn’t too bad of a flight and the flight was gorgeous. It was almost worth flying into Hamilton Island just because the views from the plane were amazing. The …

    Long story short, the previous two weekends have balanced each other out. Last weekend, Andrea, Kaytlyn and I went to Waterford, Cork, Blarney, and Cobh. This weekend, I went to the vhi swiftcare DCU clinic 3 times, the Beaumont hospital once, for 11+ hours, and talked to 6 different doctors since Wednesday.   For last weekend, I also had my first hostel experience. It was brilliant. We had tons of fun and …

    Whew, finally. I never thought I'd get here, but I have even if it may be a week later than I had orininally planned. When I began my travels, there had been the possibility that my Brazilian Residency was no longer valid, but because of miscommunication between the Brazilian Federal Police and my family no one really knew. When I arrived in Sao Paulo on the 10th of July, I knew that …

    We woke up early this morning and departed Bunratty so that we could get more time in Dublin. I slept on the bus the whole way to Kilkenny Castle. Walking around Kilkenny Castle was nice, but honestly, after seeing at least seven other castles this trip, they were all becoming a blur. What I really loved about Kilkenny were the library and drawing rooms. I loved the library, firstly, because I …

    Another fun filled weekend...Andrea and I went to Fidel's again for brunch, then came back to welcome our new flatmates Christina and Jessica, twins!  They went to sleep and us girls (Janelle, Andrea, and I) went to do some op shopping (opportunity shops/secondhand or thrift stores) and another chill evening.  Sunday, we took Christina and Jess down to the markets and the grocery store.  Then spur of the moment, we …

    My work out at the Collection Store continues, but there is a light at the end of the tunnel.  I'm not sure wether I will run out of objects or days first, but it is a race to the finish.  I'll continue pulling out rusty metal and silt from the harbour floor until one of the two happens. It has been a while since I posted, but I will try to …
