My Highlight(s): Jellyfish, Wishing Stone, and Evening Encounters
I guess my highlight was the nature and the whole countryside of Northern Ireland. I thought it was impressive how green everything was – I know now why Ireland is called “the green isle”. I especially liked our trip to the beach. Of course this day (the day we had announced as our “beach day”) was the only day on which we had a cloudy sky and a cold wind blowing. But nevertheless we had a lot of fun at the beach with the jellyfish ^_^ right, Katharina?!
The Giant’s Causeway was also really interesting to see …although we didn’t find the one stone with 8 corners. But one of the nice tourist guides told us which stone was the “wish stone” (the one he showed us did not have 8 corners). Some of us really did as the man told them and rubbed their butts on the stone to make a wish. I don’t know if their wishes will really come true, but at least it was fun to watch ^_^.
Also the evenings at our hall of residence were pretty cool. I would like to greet Sören and Günther in this point in my text!
Anyway, I believe there were too many highlights to list them all. The whole trip was really cool and interesting. The lowlights fade at the memory of the many nice experiences.
