Dublin Views

Watching the view at the Cliffs of Moher

Wow! I have been in Dublin for about two weeks now and I swear I have been going non-stop ever since I have arrived. There is so much to do, so much to see, so much to taste (!) that I feel like there is no way I will never have enough time to do everything that I want. So I guess that means I either have to pick and choose wisely what I do, or somehow manage to visit three castles/cliffs every other weekend, eat out for two out of three meals every day, and also fly to other parts of Europe as needed. That seems possible, no?

So if there is one thing I can promise you about studying abroad, it is that you will never be bored or run out of things to do. On my way home from class last week, some friends and I casually decided to take a little tour through Dublin Castle. Yes, there is a literal castle on my way home from school that I pass twice a day. I have gone to an open mic night, listened to some traditional Irish music, watched the GAA (Gaelic Athletic Association) hurling finals, and even traveled to the complete opposite side of the country to see the Cliffs of Moher (10/10 would recommend). But enough talk about all these amazing things to do and places to go. I mean, they say that a picture is worth a thousand words, right? Check out everything I have done so far in these pictures I took along the way. I hope you enjoy!

As I learned everyone (and I mean everyone) says in Ireland,

P.S. “Grand” is also used by everyone as a response to almost anything on a regular basis.

<p>Hey, I'm Alexis! I'm a born and raised San Diego, California girl and (no surprise here) I love the beach, warm weather, and all things outdoors--from riding bikes on the coast to exploring hidden hiking trails. However, my biggest passion in life is softball. I have been playing for ten years now, and I currently play in college (go tigers!). In the summer I help coach youth softball teams and serve as a camp counselor. I love being around people, sharing my energy with others, and just having a good time living life!</p>
