It is crazy to think that I have already been in Ireland for almost 5 months now and it has surely flown by quick! Now that school is finally done for this semester and the New Year is approaching, I have been able to do some travelling. This past weekend I travelled to Liverpool then to Manchester; It was definitely an experience that I will never forget.
Liverpool was amazing and a beautiful city to visit. I got to do a lot of sightseeing, shopping and went to the Liverpool museum where I learned a lot about the history of the city, the Beatles and about their two famous Football teams; Liverpool and Everton.
I was then able to go that evening to the ice bar, ice-skating and get to try nutella crepes (it was delicious).
After spending a few days in Liverpool, I then travelled to Manchester for a day where I got to meet up with a teammate and now one of my best friends, Rosalyn. It was great getting to meet up and walk around the city with her before I headed home for Christmas break.
For a moment when I was standing in the middle of the city centre it was one of the first times I have had to realize how lucky I am to be where I am because of doing something I love. It has been a journey to say the least however the best is still to come…
Saying that, I’m very excited to finally being able to go home and spend Christmas and New Years with my family & friends. I’m looking forward to celebrating the New Year back home in Philly. I am beyond excited to see my family, friends and everyone back home in Philly!
