A street view of Amsterdam in the Netherlands

Week 8 was amazing. I went to Amsterdam and had a blast. It’s so nice to be so close to such a awesome areas. Amsterdam is truly an amazing city and I wouldn’t have been able to see it without this opportunity. I went on a canal ride, toured the city, and even went to a cheese museum. I’m so psyched to visit more areas in Europe and expand my world view. (Submitted on March 15, 2023)

This week was Saint Patrick’s Day!!! It was great fun. We went to the parade in Cork and went to a St Patrick’s Day festival with acrobatics and sweets. It was an amazing time. Full of Craic. I went with new friends I made from Ireland and people from UDEL. (Submitted during March 20, 2023)

Week 11 has been amazing. On Tuesday we went on the beginning of a weeklong trip to Greece and Ireland. Studying abroad in Ireland gives us the opportunity to see new sites and explore countries we never thought possible. Greece has been utterly amazing. We went to an Island called Corfu and are currently in Athens. Athens is an amazing city with loads of culture and Beauty. (Submitted during Week 11)

Visiting the Colosseum in Rome, Italy

Week 12 has been awesome! We’ve left Greece and are now in Italy. Our plan is to go from Rome to Venice to Milan and then fly out back to Ireland. Rome is amazing! We’ve seen the Colosseum and Hadrians temple. Such an amazing time in an amazing city. (Submitted on April 5, 2023)

Sadly this week has probably been one of the most stressful weeks at UL. There’s so much assignments coming up, and it’s getting to a point where I really just want to be done. I’m afraid of grades, as I don’t understand UL’s grading system. And more then anything I want to just relax on a beach and enjoy the rest of my time here. But this is school, not a vacation so I’ll tough it out and hopefully everything will be okay. (Submitted on April 22, 2023)
