Köln und Dusseldorf 🇩🇪

Last summer I travelled to Cologne and Dusseldorf. Germany is one of my favourite places to visit. I have been to Berlin before and loved it. I would love to learn how to speak German and I don’t think I would find it difficult to learn. Below are some highlights from the trip. I look forward to visiting Germany again after the Coronavirus pandemic. Germany has excellent food and drink, shopping, transport options, architecture and tourist attractions. 🥨 Follow my insta for more snaps 💫

Things to see and do in County..Clare☘️

County Clare is one of my favourite counties in Ireland. It is not far from County Galway and there are lots of small towns and villages. The countryside is picturesque and very rural Ireland. County Clare is very popular with (American) tourists because of its scenery. Clare is notorious for its flora, fauna and landscape 🦌🌿 I go to County Clare often with friends and family and was there recently. I have been to County Clare on many school trips and family holidays and it brings back many memories🥪 I plan on visiting Bunratty Castle soon with friends. Below are a list of some of my Clare favourites.

Dungaire Castle, Kinvara (South Galway)
The Cliffs of Moher
The Burren Perfumery

Picnicking with family in Ennistymon

Barcelona🇪🇸

I have been to Spain countless times; Mardid, Málaga, Murcia, Albacete, Alicante, Benidorm and the canary islands, Majorca, Lanzarote and Feurteventura. However, last year was my first time to go to Barcelona. There is lots to do in Barcelona, and I would definitely go again. It is a huge city with lots to see and do.

Here are some recommendations..

Sightseeing: Bascílica de la Sagrada Família, Casa Battló, Park Guell, Parc Montjuic, Las Ramblas, Beaches

Shopping: I love Spanish shops. They have much nicer clothes than here in Ireland, better quality and more selection. My favourite shops in Barcelona are Pull&Bear, Zara, Stradivarius, Ale-Hop.

Food: Nachos at the W Hotel, Fresc Co, McDonald’s

Traditional Spanish food and drinks: Spanish omelette, paella, olives, patatas bravas, jamón, gazpacho, tapas, churros, Sangria wine

Nightclubs: Opium, Razzmatazz

Welcome to my blog 🌸

I should be studying for my M.Sc exams, but here I am writing my first blogpost. As day 29586928582348529 of quarantine passes by, I reflect on the year that has passed and the good times that were had. I am missing seeing classmates on a daily basis and going for lunch together.  Some of us were lucky enough to travel to London for a weekend getaway before the lockdown started here in Ireland. People have mixed opinions about doing a Masters degree, however I do not regret my decision at all. The knowledge and experience gained will help me going forward in my career, I may write another blog on this topic in the future. I look forward to what the future holds and I am hoping travel restrictions won’t last too much longer. The novelty of weekly zoom calls with friends is wearing off, however it is a good excuse to whip out a bottle of wine and snap whacky filtered selfies. I will keep this first blogpost short and sweet, however I look forward to creating more content in the future. I have always loved art and photography. Since I will have more time to develop my skills after completing my Masters degree, I am excited for what the future holds.
