As I am approaching the end of week 4 abroad, I'm reflecting on all of the fun and exciting things I've done thus far! We went to the Camden Market the other week and it's the most amazing place ever!
Camden Market, Camden High Street
At these markets you can get food, artwork, jewelery, clothing, souvenirs and so much more! The food was really good here I had a crepe and split Indian food with Tara. You can literally spend all day here and still not see everything. We are going again this Sunday to look at some of the street art which is Banksy inspired.
Tower Bridge, River Thames
This weekend we went to Ireland and stayed in an Air BnB in Dublin. Dublin is a very nice city but it definitely wasn't what I was expecting. You have to stay in the Temple Bar area or else there really isn't anything else to do. I went with three other girls from Sacred Heart, Tara, Caitlyn and Julianne and one of our friends from St. Rose, Julie. We signed up last minute for a bus trip to Galway and Cork. Out there you can see castles and the cliffs. The Cliffs of Moher are a big tourist attraction, but I have to say that the baby cliffs were prettier, in my opinion. Staying in an Air BnB is definitely a good and safe way to go. Its as cheap as a hostel but you have the whole place to yourself and don't have to worry about anyone else. When we travel to Rome, Italy in 2 weeks we are staying in a hostel for comparison though! Ireland is such a pretty place and with a last name like, O'Reilly, I felt as if I was returning back to the motherland.

Throwing a pint back at the Guinness Factory in Dublin at the top of the Gravity Bar you can overlook all of Dublin, a very cool sight and a must see on your trip!
I've found myself now slowly picking up on the language difference they use here, such as, queue for line, cheers for thank you or goodbye, lift instead of elevator and other small things!
