Onerepublic, 19.10.


It was so amazing. My favourite song at the moment and 10000 people singing it together. It was really a great show! They are just so inspiring. Seize every moment, seize every moment. <3

Adventure park time

It was last Wednesday when I got an email, that said just: Excellent opportunity! Sign up now! And as soon I realised that it was about 40 places left for a free day in the Adventure park, I did. I was in as soon as I read zipline. And it was a great day.

We went to the estate in the Wicklow mountains, south of Dublin (click). What was so great was that I got to spent the whole day with irish students, as I spend most of the time here with Erasmus people. They were a lot of fun and into all kinds of challenges we had to do. So I found myself running in the bog, trying to collect points, doing archery and even climbing to the top of 10m high column with 2 peoprle already on the top, leaning backwards holding hands and jumping down. (So proud of myself for the last one!) So you know, the usual stuff:) Photos are not the best, but the weather was kinda irish, so bear with me. The best comes at the end: our team was the best one out of 15 and there were prizes and champagne:)







 Grand! :)

Glendalough

Glendalough (click) is a remote valley amongst the Wicklow mountains, part of the Wicklow mountaions national park. It is a site of an acient monastery and also great beauty and serenity today. In the summer time it is over populated with turists, but as we visited it, we had all the time and place we needed to enjoy the nature and the acient ruins.

Glendalough contains of two lakes (lower and upper lake) and many hiking trails lead around them. You can choose tho walk any distance between 1 and 20 km, so we settled for 10.

Firstly we checked the monastic site, which used to be populated since 498 AD when young monk Kevin came there to meditate in peace and wilderness. Soon crowds of pilgrimes came to emulate hime, Glendalough became Irelands biggest monastic site. In some form it was populated until 17th cantury. Today we can see the ruins on the blooming community.

After the sight-seeing we decided to take the walking route, that lead around the both lakes. In between we climbed 600 wooden steps, enjoyed the views from the top of the mountain and crossed the stream by jumping from one rock to another. Fun!:) We concluded the day with some hot tea/coffee/chocolate in the nearby Kevin's take-away. Well deserved.:)

Howth

A beautiful Saturady, spent at the beautiful city.

Howth (click) is a beautiful sea-side resort, close to Dublin bay, but distant in terms of city-like atmosphere. The surroundings are very beautiful, unspoilt and photoghenic. So I'll let pictures do the takling about scenery, fish-loving and the best fich and chips in Ireland (locally approved!).
