I am back from Ireland!

Hello everybody!
I am back from Ireland and I have had an amazing time. This was genuinely the best trip we have ever had! In this post I will tell you about all the new experiences I have gained and the lovely people I have met. Have fun!

I had to get up at 5 o'clock AM and it was far too early! Joy picked me up and we drove to school were we arrived a little bit too early. It was freezing cold outside, I can tell you that! Then we drove to the airport in Eindhoven. It was the first time I would fly by airplane and Lisa and I were so nervous, you wouldn't believe it! But it turned out to be perfectely fine and I'm proud to say I even liked it!

We arrived in Dublin at last! We drove towards the city centre and I did some good shopping there (shoplog coming up!). After this we went to an old prison for political opponnents. That was quite cool because we watched a movie in class ('In the name of the father', it's brilliant!) which was recorded there! Around 18:00 we went to the hostfamilies. We (Claudia, Milena, Joy and I) had one consisting of an old man and woman who were both lovely!

This was such a lovely day! We went to the Moate Community School and took some lessons in for instance Irish, PE (Gealic football) and science. I think the break was the best part because I have had so much fun talking to the Irish people! They were so friendly and hilarious and I miss them quite a bit!

This was the day we went to Kilkenny, a town with a famous castle which we visited, too. First we had some free time. We all expected Kilkenny to be a village with about three shops but they had a Penny's and it was a great mix between the larger companies and the small shops. Lovely! After this we visited the castle, which was nice, but the tourguide was quite boring and we all were a little tired. But the best part of the day was when we saw a big fat gypsy wedding in front of our eyes!

We had to drive for two and a half hours to get there but the cliffs of Moher were worth it! These cliffs are famous because Harry Potter part 6 is partly recorded there. So incredible to see them in real life! It rained a lot while driving there but once we arrived the sun shone! Can you believe our luck?!

After this we visited Galway which was quite a big town (another one and a half hour driving). I didn't buy anything but I did like the shops!

In the evening we had a disco. We expected it to be a great failure and we thought it would be very awkward but once arriving there the dancing started very quickly and we had a really good time! Those Irish are partyhardies! (:

And today it was time to go home already! But we first went to another castle and to Cork. In Cork there was quite a big shoppingmall and it was very convivial with Lisa and Annemieke.
After this we went back by plane again and soon we arrived at the school.

I have had an amazing time and we are trying everything to convince our teachers and the Irish principle to get the Irish to visit our school because we really want to see each other again! I really hope it's going to work, fingers crossed!
