My time in Dublin was absolutely amazing! My goals during this experience included trying new things, travelling as much as possible, and convincing someone that I was Irish (my red hair made this pretty easy). Because of the opportunities that FIE was able to offer me, I was able to accomplish all of these goals. FIE puts on two weekend trips to Galway and Northern Ireland. These two trips were probably my favorite trips I took the whole semester. My favorite memory from the Galway trip was when we took a ferry out to the island, Inis Mór. I was able to go outside on the back of this ferry and hang on to the railing as the giant waves splashed me and my friends. I will never forget this and other memories I made while I was in Ireland. There were plenty of other opportunities for me to travel around Dublin as well as the rest of Ireland. Being located in the city center was great because I was able to do things I never would have imagined of doing in the suburbs of Minnesota that I currently live in. I would not trade this experience for anything in the world and I can't wait to go back to Ireland some day.
