Slán go Fóill

After 4 amazing months in this beautiful country, I’m down to my last week abroad. Sadly, I will not be spending my last week here in Ireland, but in Madrid and Paris. Either way it’ll be the last 7 days that I spend on this side of the world for a while but I can…

A Whole New World

The first two weeks I’ve spent here at Maynooth have been great craic! (Check out the local slang I’ve picked up). The day I arrived was really hectic; I arrived about an hour earlier to the school and nothing was opened, I had to walk for 15 minutes in the dark trying to find the…

The Start of Something New

Today I embark on a journey of a lifetime. I’m leaving my beautiful  island of Puerto Rico and I’m heading towards the wonderful country of Ireland. I’m awaiting a whole new set of experiences and am ready to be immersed in a different culture from my own. I’m excited to leave but I’m really going…
