I hopped on the opportunity to venture to Cork this past week with some friends for a quick little escape- but I ended up staying longer than anticipated because #yolo. It was a packed little trip! I was there to see a friend’s film screen in the Cork Film Festival, and ended up doing much so much more than I expected! A road trip to the beach, pints in tiny country-side towns, and a ringing of infamous tower bells rounded out a great week. I also went to my first (and probably last) rave… however, since my parents read this blog, the details of that will be saved for my auto-bio. Hehhh…
I loved getting to end my time in Ireland spending a decent amount of time in Cork, considering that’s where my favorite Irish people hail from. It’s got such a different vibe than Dublin, and I was happy to get out of crazy Dublin for a while! I also loved being able to drive through the countryside. Some of my favorite parts of the week were the simple moments we got the chance to drive through the deep green countryside of Ireland. It’s such a beautiful country, and I’m glad I was able to have this year to appreciate the little lush island on the edge of Europe!
