We all had been looking forward to our trip for such a long time, until the journey finally began on Thursday the 20th of September a few minutes before one o´clock in the morning. We started with a 4-hour bus ride to Bratislava. After the check-in and the security check we finally took off to Dublin.
From Dublin airport we took a bus to our hostel in Galway where we stayed for two nights. During our stay in Galway we had the chance to visit the Cliffs of Moher, Bunratty Castle and the monastery Clonmacnoise. The most impressing sight were the cliffs, even though we didn’t have the best weather that day.
After our stay in Galway we went back to Dublin by bus and got to know our host families who we stayed with for the following seven days. I can only say that it was special for us because we got to know another culture. We also got to know the culture more by e.g. taking lessons in Irish dance in the evening.
We also had the chance to improve our English skills at a language school every day which was fun. We also learned a lot about Irish culture when visiting the Epic museum, which is about Irish emigration all over the world, and having a really nice tour guide through Dublin city.
Looking back, I can say that we all really enjoyed the trip and are glad we were able to get to know a new culture and gain experience for life. The trip will remain in our memory for a long time.
