Our last trip to Dublin


This is a photo captured at the Cliffs of Moher in Galway, Ireland with my six other close friends I made while abroad. It is significant to my international experience because it was our last weekend trip we took while abroad. We had only been able to take three trips where our whole friend group could go, which was seven people, so it was pretty special to be on our last trip all together. In order to do this, we had to take a bus tour that picked us up at 6am. We anticipated that it was going to be raining and windy and cold up there but boy we were still caught off guard. The rain was sideways and the mud was thick but it did not take away from the beauty of that place at all. Managing to get this picture was quite an accomplishment simply due to the fact that we all don’t look like a mess. I believe this photo is very indicative of how our friendship, and most of our weekend trips were all semester. We were, by no means, any of the same people and many times we would argue about petty things on trips but in the end we were able to put it together and make great memories together.
