My trip to Ireland brought about my first air travel experience and as August drew closer, I felt nervous. Actually, I had to face a fear of flying and doing so gave me the chance to experience a lot of great moments. Between my phone and digital camera, I took many photos to capture memories spanning arts, food, scenery, tours, weather. Just to hint at a few of these:
- Eye-catching creative sights
- Stunning architecture
- Unexpected sightseeing
- Interesting facts learned along the way
- Trying new tastes
- Old ruins viewed in passing
Although only a short list, it covers many moments during my time in Ireland. Some were for study abroad as well as for leisure. I’m inspired to write my thesis based on this trip, having a lot of material from daily excursions.
The flights, by the way, both to Dublin and back to Philadelphia were on US Airways and very smooth. I couldn’t sleep on the overnight flight going to Ireland, but was still able to relax more easily than I thought. It sure was exciting when the pilot said, “Welcome to Dublin!”
Coming up, I’ll be posting more in detail about each day, photos included; stay tuned.
If you’ve taken international trips, what has been your favorite destination? If you haven’t traveled abroad, where would you love to visit first?
