My junior year I took a trip to Ireland towards the end of May. It was a wonderful and interesting experience. I had never been anywhere like it nd was so excited I got the chance to go. It was for my sisters graduation present so all four of us girls got to go on this enduring trip. It started off bad though, for our flight getting to London was late but the one heading to Dublin was taking off on time. We literally had to sprint and try and find our way around before our other plane took off. We couldn't understand half the people there so we were basically stuck on our on trying to find the right gate for our next plane. Suprisingly we got there on time, right as the plane was about to shut for take off.
We arrived to Dublin and was escorted by the cutest old Irish man who took us to our hotel. He was hilarious and shared his stories about how crazy Ireland was. Our luggage had gotten lost too, luckily we all had n extra pair of clothes. We started out going on a tour of the town we were in and getting off at different stops just to get a feel for everything. The whole trip we traveled To Different parts of Ireland, seeing things like the St. Patricks Cathedral, The blarney stone, all the cliffs, not to mention the pubs int he towns. I kissed the blarney stone for good luck, because we definitely needed it. St. Patricks Cathedral was gorgeous in every way and It was one of my favorite things getting to see there. Every little statue in it had its own story which was something to find out. The cliffs were fun to be near and just to see how time has changed them from how they were years ago. We got to go to a place where a man owns a bunch of sheep and sheep dogs. I had always herd about them but never seen an actual sheep dog control a heard of sheep. It was amazing seeing how well he had trained them. They could be hundreds of feet away and with a whistle there in ten seconds. They listened to his every command and so did the sheep. Their were so many of them but somehow the two dogs could handle them. another exciting thing was going on a ferry ride it the pouring rain. It was beautiful out there so rain and all me and my older sister stood out there. My step mom and other step sister stayed inside but still got a good view.
The food was different, but nothing to complain about. The only thing I didn't really like was black pudding, which looks like livermush but does not taste anything like it. The prices were way higher there, even water cost money. I loved seeing the towns and going ot the pubs which are just bars. They had music playing all night and of course we got to dance. The last night we were there, we saw an irish dance show. It was amazing and I wish i could learn how to dance like they do.They were all so light on their feet and didn't miss a beat.The morning we were supposed to leave because I was going to my junior prom, our flight got cancelled. I was so upset, but knew the trip was still worth it. It was definitely something I'd never forget. In the six days we were there, It was so much fun and I would definitely go back.
