Why do we travel? For many different reasons, that's for sure. Usually we just wanna runaway for a while, get lost in a strange city where we can be whatever we want to be with no previous attachments whatsoever. But I'm pretty sure that the deepest desire behind the running away is the persuit of… Continue reading “While I was looking for myself”
Yes, I'm opening this post with a quotation by this irish guy, John Banville, who sounds not too shabby of a novelist (at least according to Wikipedia and Nabokov). So, why really? It's raining all the time, it's expensive as hell (we're assuming that it's really expensive there, like 6€ for a pint) and does… Continue reading “I live in Dublin, God knows why.”
"Rise and shine" I mumbled to myself in my sleepy voice as I got up and awkwardly sort of fell climbing down the bunk ladder. Thanks to that I have matching bruises on both of my arms, one from slipping in the bath tub last week. As you may tell I'm the master of self-inflicted… Continue reading Cache me if you can or how to explain all my bruises and blisters.
It's official: the world is coming to an end! Even though it seems that every week there's someone announcing the end of the world somewhere, this is not the case. I don't believe any of them, but a whole week of sunshine in Dublin? Well, that's something guys, I tell ya. So in disbelief of… Continue reading Seagull way? Almost, I’m off to see Galway.
Day off? And it's sunny? Off we go then! Gotta love day trips from Dublin. So this time (few weeks ago ho ho) we got on the train and went to the suburbs of Dublin. Originally a fishing village in Dublin bay - Howth (Binn Éadair for all you irish enthusiasts) is such a lovely… Continue reading Watch out for the cliffs, yo.
Saturday. 1 month since I set my foot in the city of thousand welcomes. If I didn't mention it before, everybody is super nice here. Like super duper nice. I would basically add half of the Dublin already because I consider them my friends after lovely meaningless chitchats haha. Everybody is so friggin nice. I… Continue reading The city looks so pretty…do you wanna paint it with me?
It's been three weeks already? Time sure flies fast when you're having fun. Or just have too many things to do. Or both. So, new week means new excuse why I didn't write something sooner and trust me, this one's a good one! As you may know there's this one thing called St. Patrick's day… Continue reading When a potato says “Let’s get mashed!” you might as well do what he says.
Let's face it, I'm a lazy blogger, but at least now I have an excuse cause I can say that the twins are quite handful. Which is 158% true. My first weekend off in Dublin - what to do, what to do... Well, I packed all the things that would come in handy and bought… Continue reading “…to hell with lemonade, just go with the beer!”
So my first week as an au pair was...something. There were, obviously, ups and downs. Few times I found myself just sitting on the floor in the middle of the chaos thinking "What the hell I'm doing with my life?" But there were also moments when I was all like "I TOTALLY GOT THIS!" I… Continue reading Whoever said all beginnings are hard was damn right!
And no I haven't used any of my irish phrases on an actual human here. I arrived two days ago and Ireland greeted me with rainy embrace. There were two little fellows waiting for me at the airport and what at first looked like being shy evolved into Iwanttodoanythingwithyana! My first two days here were… Continue reading How’s it going bud?
