I was given the opportunity of a lifetime this summer, and I can honestly say that I did in fact have the time of my life. Not a day went by that I didn’t think of how lucky I was to be able to participate in the Irish Life Experience. Being able to learn the culture and history firsthand is by far the best way to learn, and experiencing it with the other seventeen high school students, who I can truly say will be lifetime friends, topped off the whole magical summer. I’ll be the first one to tell you that school and I do not go hand in hand, but the classes in Ireland changed that mind set for me. I enjoyed everything that we learned in the eight days of class, not to mention all the tours we went on. It was the most interesting thing I have ever been a part of, and I actually learned something! The ILE is the perfect amount of adventure and learning, and a whole lot of fun! From riding a tandem bike with my girl Zoe, to dancing to a Miley Cyrus song with Alyssa, Fiona, and MC for the talent show, each day was full of surprises and adventures. I couldn’t thank all the counselors enough for making this trip what it was-life changing. The Irish Life Experience will always be a part of me and there is not a doubt in my mind that the summer of 2011 will be the best summer yet. Angie, Dan, Edel, Levi, and Momma T (Taryn), thank you for everything you did-not for just me, but for all of us that were lucky enough to be a part of ILE.
