The second group of the expedition, returns home!!! Vanessa on Friday and Clara, Sara and me on Sunday. Each of us spent the last day in the best possible way: Clara made her last minute shopping and made her last photos around town as well, Sara took the opportunity to sleep since he was partying the night before and I prepared my suitcase, which was a bigger challenge than the coming trip, as I had to put more clothes than before. After that, I said goodbye to Shermaine the grandaughter of my irish hostmother. I took a taxi and I asked him to take me to pick up Clara. We said goodbye to her hostparents and I thanked for taking care of my child "Clarita". When we got to the airport we met Sara. Then, we checked in our suitcases, we passed through security control and once inside departure lounge, we went to enjoy our last coffee in Ireland.... Ireland will always be in our hearts!!!!!

We had our last excursion in group, we have gone to "Dalkey", a very small charming village next to the sea. Clara, Llúcia, Lorena and me took the bus and the Irish hostmother of Sara picks us up to go to Dalkey. She's an absolutely lovely girl who showed us the wonderful institute where one of her daughters goes. After that, we started our excursion: first we saw a small street market located in a old train station, we liked so much the atmosphere that we decided to have our lunch in a coffee shop that had been a train cab at some previous time, then we started our walk along the coast and the tireless search of the Bono's house, we asked many local people and everyone was telling us one different thing, it seems that nobody really knows where Bono lives, it was so funny that we got to make bets even among ourselves and making photos wherever just in case, ja, ja, ja!!! But at least, we could find the Evya's house. What a great day, though you made me to walk a lot, damn !!!!

Ohh, noooo, It has arrived the dreaded farewell !!! I must confess that some days I wanted, but now I start feeling sorry for having to leave Ireland, although I want to get home to see my family, friends and boyfriend. But the truth, Irish people are great people very helpful and I'll really miss them. I took pictures to remind everyone and to my surprise, my boss had prepared a note of thanks with a generous tip for me, which I thanked a lot to her. I said goodbye with the promise to return in the future and I hope fulfill it...!!!

This experience is almost over... What a pity!!! This Sunday took the plane to home the first group: Adan, Alodia and Ruth. The day before, after the trip to Kilkenny, we were all together having dinner to say goodbye to them... On the one hand they didn't want to go back, but on the other hand they wanted... They were in two minds!!!! ...When we are here we miss there and the other way round, we are never happy, we are nonconformists by nature... That's life!!!

Our last excursion booked through the travel agency, today a little later because it's closer... We went to "Kilkenny", a beautiful city where are located "The Wicklow Mountains" that have been chosen a lot of times to make Hollywood movies as: PD I love you, Braveheart, King Arthur, The Tudors ... We could admire during all the trip, majestic green meadows where horses, cows and sheep grazed peacefully ... Besides the city and its most important monuments, we visited the cemetiry and the wonderful lakes of Glendalough as well ... A feast for the eyes!!!!!!

We booked at a travel agency also a tour to Galway, again almost three hours to go and to go back..., but it was worth once more as we enjoyed a wonderful day, beautiful sceneries in "The Cliffs of Moher" and the bustling little town of Galway. Of course, we ended the day very tired because of we got up early and walked quite ...

This Friday is the "Cultural Night" and we can visit most of the museums in the town for free from 19.00 PM. So, we haven chosen "Wax Museum" to do our first visit of the evening because our friends Al.lòdia and Llúcia are working there. They were our guides showing us all the rooms... It was really fun because we were all together joking and taking photos in every corner with the characters that we were finding... After that, we were to visit "Jameson Distillery", where we were presented with a sample of whiskey which made us the visit more enjoyable! Some of us went to visit the Trinity College's Library and others to dinner to end the evening...

Today has been another great day. We have gone to a "Walking route" around city center with our absolutely lovely "gallego" guide JUAN. He has told us the History of Ireland in a very clear, interesting and amusing way, which helps us to understand the origin of the most irish monuments and places. I think this has been my money better spent in Ireland, I recommend to everybody. Superb!!!! Thanks a million Juan!!!!
