how´s things? Guess what! The legendary 6C class went on a fantastic trip to Ireland from 19.04-26.04.2018! Dublin, the capital city of Ireland, wasn´t safe for a second!
First of all I would like to say a big thank you to our teachers, Mrs. Petritsch-Kolle and Mrs. Taferner, who came along with us. The trip was perfectly well organised and we all appreciate a lot what you have done for us. Thanx!
Ireland is a country, which is well known for rainy and cloudy days. However, we just experienced the opposite. Sunshine, blue sky and no rain at all (except for some scattered drizzles): summerfeeling in Dublin! You may think I´m lying but I´m not. All the Irish people wore T-shirts, shorts and summer dresses. I even saw girls in bikinis! You can imagine my facial expression when I looked at them!
Anyway! We all stayed with different host-families. And to be honest with you, I think, me and my two classmates got the best one of all! The first evening, when we arrived, we straightaway sang Ed Sheeran songs together. That was the moment when I fell in love with the Irish and of course when we drank black tea. This was one of my highlights. I was also positively surprised by the kindness and optimism of the Irish.
Speaking of sightseeing - we not only explored Dublin but also parts of Ireland with all its beauty. We did the “Howth Cliff Walk“, where I saw the most awesome landscape I have ever seen. “Temple Bar“, the coolest district in town. All the churches and one even song, which impressed me a lot. “Glendalough“ and “Wicklow Goal“, which was as scary as a cellar at night. That means a lot! “Grafton Street“, which was a “must“ for me because you know my future husband, Ed Sheeran, sang a song about this unique street. Then ”Jeanie Johnston“, a famine ship, with a really tough history. “The Guinness Storehouse“, where all the beer lovers have a pint of the dark liquid and from whose top you have a magnificent view of Dublin. Don´t forget “Trinity College“, I´m now even considering studying in Dublin…
In short, it was certainly one of the best weeks in my life. I really improved my English and gained a lot of knowledge about Irish history. Impressions and memories which will definitely last for a lifetime.
