Irish Gap Year

I loved my time in ireland. I got to know everyone on the program with me so well. I learned to surf and to enjoy Guinness. I got to explore Ireland’s mountains over many hikes. There were many opportunities to meet all kinds of people and I made many friends. I was a great experience and I am glad that I was able to go despite all the Covid restrictions. I loved the program but I am starting to run out of things to say so I am stalling for the last few remaining characters because for some reason there’s a minimum.

What was the most unfamiliar thing you ate?
Seeing the peace wall in Belfast, Northern Ireland.
