Mastering the City Life
The hustle and bustle of people, taxis, buses, cars, trains, bikes, everything has always felt a bit overwhelming to me in the famous NYC. I never entered the city without someone who had mastered the art of public transportation and street names because I had never been able to do so myself.
I come from a small town in New Jersey where I went to school with the same people since kindergarten and I know how to get everywhere with my eyes closed. And then I went to a college that I could cross the campus in 5 minutes. But NOW, I think I am finally becoming a city girl! (I know Dublin is small, but I still feel accomplished!)
I am proud to say that after about a month of being absolutely clueless with public transportation AND getting lost with every place I tried to walk, I am now fairly certain I can find my way everywhere. I have no idea how people found their way around before technology because the Dublin Bus App and Google Maps have become some of my most prized possessions. Even still, they have helped me become more familiar with the city and conquer the mini concrete jungle of Dublin. It has been quite the experience but totally worth it!
