Missing Dublin

Hi, it is me again. This is the last blog post for my trip to Dublin, but not the final overall blog post. By accident, I thought the last blog post was the last one, so I left a lot of my ideas on Ireland in that post. Since there is also no prompt for…

Thank you

Dorothy was right- there is no place quite like home. After a long but smooth day of traveling back across the pond first to New York City (JFK Airport) then to Syracuse, we (my mom and I) arrived back home safely late yesterday evening. I realized rather quickly that I was over dressed for the…

Coming Out Stronger

Leaving Ireland was incredibly bittersweet. As I stared out the window, flying over the beautiful green countryside, I wondered if I will ever return to this place. I hope I will be able to visit Dublin again in my life. I learned so much about myself and the world around me. I gained a myriad…

Until Next Time, Ireland!

Just as promised, I am back yet again, however, this will be my last time posting on my blog for my Ireland trip. I have been home for about a week and a half at this point, and I find it to be a good time to look back and reflect on my truly one…

67 days and many memories later

As my last week closes out, I can’t believe that I’ve been in Ireland for 9 weeks already. Time really flew and it doesn’t feel like that much time has passed since I first got off the plane and landed in Dublin airport. Just when I’d gotten used to and started fitting into the city,…

The Last Week

My last week in Ireland could definitely be described as bittersweet. I would find myself getting sentimental over the strangest things—like reloading my LeapCard used for busing. I would try not to think too much over the fact that that would most likely be my last time ever doing that. I would also make an…

Goodbye Strangers

My last week in Ireland was great but also quite sad. I went out with friends several times to enjoy the last week. We had a great time spending time with each other and enjoying the great city that is Dublin. For my last day at work my coworkers took me and the other intern…

Irish I Could Stay Here Forever

I took my clues during work mainly from whether or not they liked or were impressed by the work that I was doing. For instance, if I went above and beyond and performed excess research or they found a blog post or advertisement unique and well written they would often verbally praise me. In that…
