    This will be the third attempt at a journal entry ( for whatever reason they refuse to post for me). It would be around 5 PM in Paris right now, if I were actually there. Unfortunately I'm sitting in a hotel just outside of Washington D.C. in my free room waiting for checkout time. Yesterday my connecting flight to Montreal got canceled due to technical issues and the only available …

    Today was my last day in Ireland and I’ll be heading off to Spain this afternoon!  I’m so excited for Barcelona!  I can’t wait to immerse myself in the Spanish culture and become fluent in the language.  It’s so exciting and different from everything I’ve done so far.  It will definitely be a change!             We got to sleep in, which was really nice.   We then headed out to take a …

    Today we woke up early so that we could explore Edinburgh Castle. It was quite drizzly and everyone had their umbrellas out, but we were given audio guides that allowed us to tour what we wanted at our leisure. After that, Mimi, Gill, Brian, Ashley, and I made our way to the Scotch Whisky Experience. With our student discount, we only had to pay 8 pounds to get a full-length tour …

    We started this day by leaving London from King’s Cross Station and taking a train into Edinburgh. Waiting for the train was less dull than usual because King’s Cross is actually the same station that Harry Potter and the rest of the Hogwarts students go to catch the Hogwarts Express. Naturally, this meant that first thing off our coach from the hotel, Mimi, Ashley and I went to find Platform …

  • Life in Wellington

    Well, another week is over here in Wellington, and Sunday has officially begun.  But somehow I'm still not ready to sleep, so I will update my journal to be the dedicated person that I should be. This past week and weekend were fairly uneventful, although I think I really missed out on the roadtrip to Rotorua.  There were apparently a few run-ins with the local wildlife that resulted in …

  • Last night in Ireland!

    Today marks my last full day in Ireland before I leave the country for Spain!  I’m so excited for Barcelona.  I’ve enjoyed my time here, but I’m ready to experience a new culture.  I think that has been one of the best parts of the trip- experiencing the culture, both old and new.  I’ve also been able to see how the culture today has been shaped by the past and …

  • Moher cliffs and a medieval dinner..

    We had another early departure this morning.  Our first stop was at a marble workshop.  The marble in Ireland comes in shades of green (how stereotypical) and black.  There was this beautiful red marble as well, but the supply of it is running out.  It was really interesting to hear about the different types of marble, particularly the black marble.  The black marble had fossils in it from shells, fish …

    Another rainy day!  Glad I decided to bust out the jeans today!  It hasn’t rained on the island since Christmas, so naturally it does when we come.  Things just always seem to work out that way.  At least the weather will be nicer in Barcelona- eighty-degree weather and beaches here I come! Anyways, it seems like we spent a lot of the day on a ferry/ waiting around for the ferry.  …

  • Derry

    We are now moving on from Belfast to Derry, the walled city.  We got to sleep in this morning, which I was really happy about!  Getting a decent night’s sleep should help me stay awake on the bus.  Because we toured the city yesterday, we get to take the longer, more scenic route to Derry.  It was really nice to get to see the ocean all the way there; it …

  • River-dancing!

    Today was a lot of driving.  We made a lot of stops along the way though to break it up so we were sitting on a bus for hours at a time.  My favorite stop that we made was to see the apparition.  I have to admit, I wasn’t really excited to get off the bus, and I really just wanted to get to Galway.  However, it was definitely worth …
