BAILEY KILTY – DIRECTLY ENROLLED AT THE UNIVERSITY OF LIMERICK IN IRELAND

Dia duit,

That is “hello, or good day,” in the traditional Gaelic Irish language. I am actually learning things while here! Crazy, I know! But really, school is continuing, and as crazy as it sounds, it’s starting to wrap up. It is unbelievable to think that I have been here for nine weeks, and I am just over half way through my time here. I am not ready to admit that it’s almost time to go back home. They were right when they said, “It will fly by.”

Since last time, classes have become a little crazier, and weekend trips have become more adventurous! I attended my first rugby match, and let me just say it was wild! Everyone within the Munster region travel from near and far, to cheer on and show their pride to the Munster Stags. Even better, the team came out with a win! The following week I joined the International Society on a road trip through the Ring of Kerry and to the Killarney National Park. So many breathtaking views. It’s hard to even put into words! Just days ago I celebrated St. Patrick’s Day in Dublin city. It was more than I could have ever imagined! People flood the city from everywhere around the world and all gather together in excitement. I never cease to be amazed by the people and culture that surround me.

In just a few short hours my sister will be flying in to join me for short time, venturing around this beautiful country. As much as I don’t like to admit it, I am beyond excited to see her again, and her four friends. I’m sure it will be nothing less than wonderful. A few days after that, I will be on my way to Paris, France for a relaxing week filled with museums and spas. Nothing is short of impossible when you are in Europe. It really goes to show how easy it is to travel once you are abroad.

Ireland has taught me to remain on my toes; a new adventure every month, week, day, always a new experience, or story to tell. I’ve learned to take things as they come, appreciate everything as something new. It still amazes me that the world is literally right at my fingertips, and opportunities just await. Take every chance you can!

Farewell, until next time!
