Many students from secondary schools are pissed off not to have enough holidays, at uni we don’t have the same problem.
The school year starts in the beginning of October, ends in April. During this time, few of us are so lucky to have reading week – the week, where you are expected to read. That’s the official definition. Literally, that’s the week, when everything is canceled and you are free. Free of uni for one week. So, we have decided to enjoy one day in another way – going to Limerick in Ireland.
But we really read! Necessary to mention.
I have never been to Ireland. A few weeks ago we thought what we can do during our reading week, including readings of course, and we were searching and searching for the cheapest flights. It was so random choice. Just click on a date and choose “anywhere.” So we clicked and then we have bought tickets to Limerick, Ireland.
The day has come, three young ladies were prepared in Stansted Airport and waited for another adventure in their lives. The first flight was fine – I slept, with the open mouth – of course, no one didn’t tell it to me, feel a bit embarrassing, when you’re close to the corridor, opened mouth and everyone has to be careful if they don’t bump into you. Thank you, girls. I really appreciate your solidarity.
Ireland. Ireland. Ireland.. Shannon Airport – I have never seen such a small airport, which we could see when we had arrived. The passport control was pretty fast and we could get to know Limerick – or we thought, that it would be much smoother than it has been.
We were going to the info, where the guy told us that if we want to go to Limerick, we can buy the tickets to Cork. Or we understood in this way. We bought them and we were super excited. Then the bus has come. And then it came. The bus driver told us, that we can’t go to the Limerick with those tickets. So we stood in the airport with bad tickets and without any bus, which could take us to Limerick. I told them before, that we should take a car and I can drive. Really. Then one guy from the bus company – one of the nicest person I have ever met – and he helped us. He called somewhere and we had a possibility, how they could give us our money back. Because of our stupidity. We were so happy, that we have met anyone like him. Then we caught the right bus and we were going to Limerick. “Girls in Ireland”
In Limerick, first of all, we were going to the bus company, where they gave us our money. The lady was so awesome and she filled everything instead of us. In the evening, we gave her chocolate for her help. It was incredible.
Sometimes, you just need so awesome pictures
And noooow… Back to Limerick. It is such an awesome historical city. For the whole day, we were walking and enjoying Limerick. We took so many pictures. And videos. So potentially, you could see it in few weeks. (It is possible to see it at the end of this article, even though there are just a few seconds from Limerick, but try to enjoy it as much as you can 🙂 )
Ireland is really nice. Really green. Really pretty. It is like a fairy-tale. When I was there, I supposed myself to be a hobbit – it doesn’t matter, that I’m so small, that’s not the main reason, haha – because I felt like in Lord of the Rings – doesn’t matter, that I saw it just once in my life, Harry Potter is much better – But it was really incredible.
The evening has come and we had to go back to London. It is such a weird feeling when the only flight which is flying in 10hours is yours and you know that everyone, who are sitting in the airport is going to the London like you. With you.
That we were going to check-in, we went to the plane and I experienced the worse flight in my life. Honestly, I was afraid every second that the plane will fall. I really had to buy a shot of Jack. Literally, it was the worst flight ever. I don’t know why, but I was really afraid. But I survived. And also others. 🙂
During my going to the flat, I slept in the bus, because I was so exhausted. Exhausted, but happy, because it was really such an amazing trip with two amazing people. :]
Thank you guys for making my reading week better, than I expected.
