Luck of the English

Yesterday was St. Patrick’s Day as we all know and even though I didn’t get the chance to go to Ireland to celebrate the holiday I managed to have a pretty Irish day here in Plymouth! Taylor Ann and I went with one of my friends from the volleyball club, she is Canadian and in one of my history classes, to an Irish pub! Going to the pub I didn’t not really know what to expect and it took us a while to actually find it but when we finally rounded the corner to find the place there was a street party going on with a live band! There were hundreds of people there with green hats and green beads and pints of beer; it was a very Irish atmosphere :) We had such a great time dancing in the streets listening to the live band, all in all I have to say the English celebrate St. Patrick’s Day very well :) I didn’t take very good pictures but here are a couple from last night

So I have been in Plymouth for over 2 1/2 months now and I cant believe how fast time has gone by. This is my last week of classes before I have a 3 week Easter break! During that time my mom is coming to visit (she gets here 3 weeks from yesterday) and I’m going to show her around Plymouth and were going to visit London :) I still have a week of classes after the break but I’m pretty sure none of my professors are actually having class. They are just giving us end of term essays to write and turn in at the end of the week, so I’m on the home stretch! And then in May I’m finally going to Italy and probably some other places in Europe (maybe Barcelona and Amsterdam). I cant believe I only have a little over 2 months left here, it feels like everything is going by so fast and once I’m finally used to everything here I’m going to have to leave :( But I’m very excited about the travels coming up and my mom visiting so ill keep you all up to date on those things as best as I can.

Til next time :)

  1. Hi, it’s your mom again! I’m so excited to get to see you in 2 weeks! I don’t care if we never leave Plymouth, I’m just so ready to hug and kiss you!!!! But all joking aside, you better have some fun stuff planned for us to do, for once in your life, I’m going to let you take charge! :)
    Glad St. Patty’s Day was fun, but really bummed Ireland didn’t work out for you….maybe we’ll have better luck going to Scotland (looking for the Loch Ness monster!!!!)
    Love you!

  2. Wow, that sounds like it was fun,,After a little of that Irish brew did you do the dougie for everybody? You know I’ve had a premonition about you and an Irish man….hmmmmm. It was so good to see you Sunday.Love you angel.
