You better be prepared for what is about to hit you. I am visiting Cork Ireland for about a month and I can’t wait. It will be the longest time I have been outside the United States. I have had a couple of trips across the Atlantic before but only a week to two weeks at a time, plus they were only touring the country so I never really got to know people there. Not to say I didn’t have a great time, but I never got an in-depth look at the modern culture like I wanted to. A month in Ireland gives me time to go visit the local sites, meet the local people, get to know more about it as a country and I can’t wait.
I am excited the most to see things and meet people I am not even expecting. I wonder how strong the accents will be. I know they speak Gaelic but does everyone speak it or just some people? I read somewhere that only a small percentage actually speak it but everyone is taught it. What if I meet a best friend? What if something happens and I find a job by some off chance? These are legitimate worries of mine. I know crazy, but I am excited to even have the possibility of something like this happening.
Ireland be prepared, a curious person is coming.
