Departure Day

So departure day has finally arrived and I have to say that it really snuck up on me. With the excitement of the holidays, I had very little time to contemplate leaving for my semester abroad. And if you know me well, the fact that I haven’t blogged about this trip yet illustrates how busy I was leading up to this point. But today is the day! Last minute packing was a bit stressful, but nothing in comparison to packing for Rwanda (if you are interested in my Rwanda blog, you can check it out here). And of course my mom helped me pull everything together with time to spare.

So as I sit waiting for my flight to Philadelphia in the Burlington airport, I invite you all to follow along with my adventures in Ireland this semester. As with any travel, I don’t have a clear idea what this island has in store for me, but I know whatever it is, it will be amazing. Check back in a few days to hear about my first impressions. 


  1. May the road rise to meet you,
    May the wind be always at your back.
    May the sun shine warm upon your face,
    The rains fall soft upon your fields.
    And until we meet again,
    May God hold you in the palm of his hand.

    Look forward to reading about your trip.
    Love, Aunt Lina

  2. Love it! :) Thanks Aunt Lina!
