Enjoying Dublin

We were very proud to be the first group to travel to Dublin in our school. The day after our last term exam, we left Mataró to go to one of the most beautiful places in the world: Dublin. At first, we were scared of the kind of families we would have there, but then we realized that we had been very lucky to have such nice and warm families as we did.

In spite of what is said, we actually had really good weather. Once we were in Dublin we were able to see lots of breathtaking landscapes, including one of the biggest parks in Europe, Phoenix Park, where we had the opportunity to be very close to a group of deer. Apart from that, we also went to see some seals next to a lighthouse in a fishing town. Furthermore we amplified our cultural knowledge by going to a quite interesting art museum in the center of city, and to the Natural Museum of Dublin. We also could experience what it is like to be a college student at Trinity College, and there we saw its stunning library.

Although we did lots of activities, we still had lots of spare time to go shopping and walk around the city. Thanks to our generous and responsible teachers, we were allowed to go toa  typical Irish pub next to our host houses. They had been very kind to us during all the trip. The last day, we were very sad to leave our families there and to say goodbye to that wonderful city.
