Today was a rather full day. We started with a relaxed breakfast at 9 am, but then we went straight to St Stephen’s Green. The weather was very great and the sun was shining. The park was beautiful and we took some wonderful photos until Max fished a coin out of a well and brought bad luck upon all of us.

After this, we followed Ms Rodenhäuser and Ms Hampe to Trinity College where we met up with the Irish students again to collect ideas and video material for our Brigde21 videos.

Ms Irvin and our teachers had also prepared a scavenger hunt trough the city, which we did in our German-Irish teams. We had to take pictures of sights and other things on a list in only one hour. The team “EisCream” of Emma, Caoimhe and Jula won the hunt with 17 photos and got some chocolate as a prize.

We ate lunch in the big dining hall of TCD, which looked just like the great hall of Hogwarts from “Harry Potter”.

Then it was time to go to the Science Gallery. Although it was not as big as we thought it would be it was very interesting and interactive. Some of us earned money at a machine where you could get one cent every 3 seconds by turning a crank.

After that we went to Bridge21 and edited our video projects, which we presented afterwards.

But then the time we spent together was over and we had to say goodbye to our new Irish friends. It was very emotional, because some of them aren´t coming to Germany in May and we do not know when we will see them again.

With a rather sad feeling we went to Christ Church Cathedral to participate in the Evensong. It was sung very beautifully and we loved the old medieval building.

The group that had booked the storytelling evening at the Brazen Head went off to go there, while the others lived it up with Ms Hampe in Temple Bar.

The evening in the pub was very interesting and the food tasted delicious. Especially the stories about the fairies and leprechauns were funny. Helena, the storyteller, made this a very great evening.

We returned home with Fiete and Berenike giggling and laughing as if they were drunk, while nobody else knew what they where laughing about. The day was very varied and nice. Quite tired we went into our rooms and fell asleep very soon.

We started our third day of our exciting journey to Dublin with a breakfast at the Ashfield hostel. Right after that we made our daily lunch sandwiches for the go. We grabbed our bags and lunches, put our coats on and started walking to Trinity College, where our Bridge21 workshop with the Irish students we met before on Skype took place. On our walk to the Bridge21, which is approximately 15 minutes from our hostel, it was really funny that everybody of our Dublin-group was still complaining about the bad weather conditions, even though we should have gotten used to it by now.

When we arrived at Trinity College, the Irish students from Saint Joseph´s Secondary School were already waiting for us with excitement in their eyes. All of us were a little passive in the beginning. But then Ciaran Bauer, the programme manager, passed out a sheet of paper with which we had to go to a student from the other country and make him or her do something or ask something about the person we were talking to. This little small talk-session loosened up the mood. Everybody started talking to each other a little more. Then we had to make a video on our ideas for the future of Europe in the groups Mr Bauer put us in. That was our first task in which we really had to cooperate with the Irish students. After we ate our lunch we presented our videos and it ended up in a big laughter.

Later on after the workshop, we had time for ourselves with the Irish students. We split up in groups and went to stores at the city centre of Dublin. We really got to know each other better and had a really good time together. We are all looking forward to seeing them in the next days.

At 3 pm the Irish students went home and we went to the Little Museum of Dublin. It was actually a small museum, but really interesting. We were able to touch and look at a lot of things.

Then, Sirin, Max and I went to the supermarket with Ms Rodenhäuser and Ms Hampe and bought the things we needed to cook our dinner for the day. It was the best day we’ve had until now and we hope it will even get better in the next days.

We are very sad that today was our last day in Dublin.

The day started at 8 o’clock with packing our bags, leaving our rooms and having breakfast in the hostel.

Then we visited the exhibition on the “Book of Kells“ and the library of Trinity College with Ciarán. There we took some pictures and had a little stop at the Trinity shop.

After this group activity we had some more free time in Dublin. We spend our last money and bought some souvenirs for our families, our friends and ourselves.

At 1.15 pm we met at the hostel and took the bus to the airport. We checked in, weighted our bags, went through the security check and went on a little shopping trip. Some of the girls bought panties at “Victoria’s Secret“.

Now we are sitting in the plane and are thinking about our enjoyable time in Ireland and we are all looking forward to going back soon. We will miss our new Irish friends

Goodbye Ireland!!!

Today was our first day in Dublin.

We met on the airport at 8.30 am and two hours later our plane took off. When we arrived in Dublin, we were very excited and left the airport at 12 am. We should mention that we had to turn the clocks back an hour. After a 20-minute drive we arrived at our hostel but our rooms weren’t ready yet. So, we had a bit of time to have lunch and to get a first impression of the city.

IMG 2881At 2 pm everybody got their rooms and we went on a sightseeing tour. Cathal, our tour guide, showed us Dublin for about two hours. He told us a lot of things about Ireland, about the culture, the history, Irish mythology and about some famous buildings. But we also sang some typical Irish songs like “Molly Malone” and he shared some fun facts with us. He also told us a lot about ghosts that are haunting Dublin. The highlight of the tour was the visit of Trinity College. We learned much about it and we were really impressed.

IMG 2879After this tour we went to a restaurant and most of us ordered Fish and Chips. It was delicious and some of us tried vinegar with their chips. We had some free time after that to explore the city. We saw the pubs and got an impression of the Dublin nightlife. At 8 pm our programme ended and we returned to the hostel. In the evening we sat in the lobby and talked about some funny and interesting topics. J

We are looking forward to getting to know the city better!
