Hello from Ireland!

7 Sep

I have been in the emerald country for a week now. Although many might think of  America and Ireland as being similar, the truth is rather the opposite. One stereotype does however hold very well over here and that is that the Irish are extremely hospitable and welcoming! This simple fact certainly helps to ease the assumed degree of homesickness that comes with traveling to a country that is thousands of miles away from loved ones.

As for the University of Limerick, I already love what I see! There are thousands of students who can’t wait to meet us and get to know us. On top of that, the campus is beautiful! Pictures really don’t describe the scene! Another great thing about Limerick is its strong tradition of athletics. The gym here is home to the largest pool in Europe and the facilities accommodate Olympic athletes training for future events, pretty cool!

Hopefully you have a very small taste of what the transition from America to Ireland has been like, more to come after classes commence next week!

Bye for now,

-Katie
