I’m now sitting in my bed back home in Clearwater, FL, cup of tea in hand. It’s so weird being back home – it almost makes it seem like the whole experience didn’t happen. This has been the most amazing month of my entire life, and now I have to accept the fact that it’s … Continue reading Full Circle
It’s definitely easy to have no worries when you’re on a study abroad trip. Everything seems surreal – it’s hard to imagine going back to “real life.” I’m not dreading going home because I’m excited to see my family and friends, and I’m excited to start my first advertising agency internship at Ozean Interactive when … Continue reading Hakuna Matata
Clearly I’m behind in posting when I haven’t even talked about my weekend trip to Venice. I should probably start with that. At the ungodly hour of 3:30 a.m. Friday morning, I woke up to change and get my stuff ready for my flight to Venice. We had an early flight and were set to … Continue reading Gratzie, gratzie! Prego! Ciao!
Our time in London has been very different than our time in Ireland was. We've had more time to do our own thing, but we are still very busy all the time. There's so much to do in London, it's hard to make time for it all! We have class every day until about 12:30 … Continue reading London with a side of Venice
As my title suggests, I've been in London for the last couple of days, and to put it simply, it's the most amazing city I've ever been to. But before I get into details, I wanted to make one last comment about Ireland. Ireland was beautiful, and I know I'll never forget my time there. … Continue reading It’s Manhattan! It’s D.C.! No, it’s London!
Yup, I did just quote from "American Boy." It's been playing in my head all throughout our travels from Dublin to London, over the Irish Sea for 4 hours on a ferry and through Welsh country for 8 hours on a bus. It's been quite a trip, hasn't it? Dublin was, to put it simply, … Continue reading Just Touched Down in London Town
We have now transfered from Galway to Dublin! Last Thursday we traveled by ferry to the Aran Islands and then went out to Monroe's Tavern. On Friday we had our first classes and visited the Cliffs of Moher, and on Saturday we arrived here in Dublin! The Aran Islands were awesome. We took a small … Continue reading Sláinte!
So I think the whole Internet situation is figured out, so I’ll be able to post more. I’ll try to sum up everything that’s happened, but it’s been a ton in only a few days. Ireland is amazing. Endless, swaying green lawns are checkered by stone fences. All kinds of animals — horses, cows, goats, … Continue reading Dove and Cliffs
Hello, my study abroad friends! The last few days have been nothing short of amazing. Because of our one-night stop in Newark (where several of us had the opportunity to travel into Manhattan, which was pretty close by), we ended up getting to Ireland on Wednesday morning instead of Tuesday; but for me, that worked … Continue reading Cross-Country Road
The view of the sky from the window next to Gate 6 at Orlando International Airport wasn’t any different from any other view I’ve seen from an airport gate. But this window made me anxious. A good kind of anxious, the kind of anxious that comes before you know something really great is about to … Continue reading Top of the morning to you!
