Hi everyone! It's not so easy to sum up three months in few lines but I will try to write, step by step, about my three-months-stay in Ireland.
My first contact with Ireland was Bandon, a small village, in County Cork. You may wonder why I went there, how come did I choose this small place? Well, actually I didn't choose it! Bandon is where my Hosting Organization was based, so I stayed here for one month to study English Language and afterwards I moved to work to Dublin.
Bandon is a small village with few pubs and one discoclub, few shops in a main street, and one or two shopping centres. Life is really simple here and I am glad I also experienced this relaxed lifestyle. As you probably know I come from a big city, Palermo, so it took me some time to get used to it, but in the end I enjoyed that month.
During my stay in Bandon I used to get up early and go to the Language Course every morning. In the afternoon I had some assignments, our teachers gave us students, but after we were free to do what we wanted to do. So, basically, I went to the Internet Point or Shopping Centres or the main Library.. that was the only way to spend those days..
At night I used to go to Bradys Pub and have some pints of beer. Irish people are rather friendly and I enjoyed meeting them.
