Sunshine and Summer in the land of rain.

Wednesday, 10 Jun 2009 | Views [744]

Ireland has been having some very un-Irish-like weather of late. Yes, I’m talking about more than a few hours of sunshine! So what does a bunch of Aussies do in the land of rain when the sun comes out for the first time in 6 months? Bake themselves ... Read more >

Road trip to South West Ireland - how many places called Miltown can there be?

Thursday, 23 Apr 2009 | Views [1818]

Renting a car and driving around Ireland is a lot easier than I thought it would be. That is, until you are trying to find the town that is 8 miles west of Miltown on the Dingle Peninsula, when in actual fact there are two towns in the area with ... Read more >

Just a bit of an update, and a little bit about the school I’m working at –

Friday, 10 Apr 2009 | Views [649]

Been feeling I’ve got a bit slack with the email updates lately, so what better way to communicate what’s been going on than this exact journal. Really, I’ve just been doing the same old here for the last few weeks. Work has been interesting.... Read more >

Don't get too excited mum, the update on the fella situation is only what I told you on skype the other day! But for the rest of you, you'll have to wait until the end of this entry. Now to the Austrlian singer - Erin bought us tickets to see Ben Lee ... Read more >

St Patrick's weekend and being a tourist

Monday, 23 Mar 2009 | Views [476]

What else would you do on the biggest weekend in Dublin of the year but be a tourist. And in keeping with the backpacker tradition, it was all about what free stuff we could do for the weekend. The best place to start for this weekend is the St Patricks ... Read more >

St Patricks Day in Dublin! What you've all been waiting for.

Monday, 23 Mar 2009 | Views [943] | Comments [1]

I love the fact that the nation gets a day off for a Saint related reason. Sure he converted the vikings to Catholicism, and is said to have driven the snakes out of Ireland, but secretly I think the Irish just used the day as an excuse to get drunk ... Read more >

How often are schools actually in session here?

Sunday, 22 Feb 2009 | Views [657]

  I’m never going to complain about the amount of holidays I get as a teacher, but it does seem schools over on this side of the world have an awful lot of holidays. However, seeing as the reason I’m over here is to travel and see as much ... Read more >

The 6 Nations and Dublin.

Thursday, 12 Feb 2009 | Views [448] | Comments [1]

I know that Australia isn't included in it, so that's my excuse for never having heard of it. But what I didn't realise is how crazy the whole city becomes when matches are on! Last weekend saw a million middle age French men descend on Dublin for ... Read more >

Living in a hostel

Friday, 6 Feb 2009 | Views [643] | Comments [4]

This weekend, I'll be saying goodbye to the highs and lows of hostel living. Don't get me wrong; hostels are a great place to stay and meet people and see what's happeing in a place. However, after being in a 16 bed dorm, connected to a 12 bed dorm with ... Read more >

New words the Irish kids have taught me

Thursday, 29 Jan 2009 | Views [422]

Don't worry - there's no swear words. I knew those ones already, I just choose not to use them (okay, so I choose not to use them all that often). 1. Bold - at first I thought they were saying "He's the bald one" and it wasn't until they ... Read more >

And now I'm teaching!

I was halfway through the day, standing in the snow in Galway harrassing people for money (but enjoying it so much more this week), when I got a phone call from a school in Dublin. They were after someone to start the very next day, I asked a bunch of ... Read more >

So the first week - and what a week it was. Started with me at the office in Dublin at 9am MOnday morning with all my possessions, and ended with me eating lasagne and drinking cheap wine in a house in Youghal with 3 Canadians. Working out the fundraising ... Read more >
