What better way to get over jet lag than to go on an adventure! I told myself that I would be more adventurous this year and so, I teamed up with Steph, her teammate, and Meg and we headed to Belfast to hangout with the Ulster Scholars and to tour the city last weekend. As with any trip, I started it out by eating two delicious doughnuts from a shop in Dublin😍. We then took the bus and headed to Belfast.

On Saturday, I got to watch my first ever hockey match, the Belfast Giants vs. the Sheffield Steelers. The atmosphere was wild, but fun and the Belfast Giants took home the win. I was digging the cheer the crowd had after their team scored😂.

On Sunday, we decided to go on the Game of Thrones Tour. The scenery at each stop was beautiful. What I enjoyed the most was how peaceful being there made me even amongst all of those people. Like just hearing the sound of the water calmly crashing into the rocks. And just exploring each area without much conversation, just taking in the beautiful views.

My favorite parts of the tour were the Giant’s Causeway and the rope bridge at Carrick-a-Rede. So remember a few months ago when I was too afraid to jump into the Guillamene?🤔 Well check me out now! Walking across a rope bridge 100 ft above sea level with a smile (a smile filled with fear, but a smile nonetheless). I was proud of myself because I know how much I overthink in those situations, but for once I just did something without worrying about “how?” or “why?”. Except for when the bridge was shaking 🙃.

I can’t wait to do more of these trips during the year and to just experience something new each time.
