Halfway Through

This past weekend I was able to say goodbye to Dublin for just a few days and spend some time in Galway and the surrounding area. I really didn’t know what to expect but I absolutely loved the weekend we had. The first night we found a pub that had a hidden pizza stand in…

Is It Really Halfway Over?

Hello from Dublin, Ireland! Today is June 27 and it feels like a crisp spring morning at a ripe 62°! I have to admit it’s pretty weird being in a place that doesn’t get much warmer than 65. For my whole life, I’ve been used to wonderful Pennsylvania that is both extremely hot, extremely cold,…

Everyone has completed their first work week at internship placements, and that means we are all one more week closer to flying back to the states. Although I thought I would be traveling around Ireland more in my free time, I…
