Today I returned to Ireland. I had a great time in Alfeld where I shared some good ol’ German beer with my “homies”, spend a lot of time with my family and ate way to much of the “good stuff”.
I could write for ages without covering even more than yesterday evening (which was truly brilliant!), but I prefer to dedicate this blog to my adventures in Ireland and I think noone would like to read all of that anyway.

So here I am. Back. Finally. Why “finally”? Well, while my flight to Germany went well, coming back was rather stressful. Diesen Beitrag weiterlesen »

On my way

I’m currently on my way back to Germany where I want to spend Christmas with friends and family. Probably I’ll be back in Ireland on New Year’s Eve. See you!

P.S.: Yeah, I’ll post some photos from the Cliffs of Moher soon. Word!

Yesterday I went into town to enjoy my new found spare time. On my way to the Luas stop I thought I could text Lena and ask her if she’d like to accompany me to the city centre.

She did. I picked her up near her home and we went to the Old Jameson Distillery together where we bought a way to expensive bottle of one of the nicest whiskeys in town (Christmas present). Although that was initially her only plan for the day, because there was an essay waiting for her at her desk, we ended up strolling the city for some hours. Shopping spree: HMV, Carolls and whatnot. In between tea time in Bewley’s in Grafton Street. All in all a great, but way to costly day.

After Lena had left to finish her essay, I had a delicious Irish Stew, which was served in a bowl made of bread, and took some photos of the seasonal decorated streets of Dublin that I’d like to share with you. But, as always, be warned: I can’t handle a camera half as good as the Doctor: Diesen Beitrag weiterlesen »

Christmas Care Package

Mittwoch, 26. November 2008, 18:42 Uhr von Felix

This morning, just when I wanted to leave, the postman delivered a package to our house. Another care package for me. I was a bit confused, because I did not expect one.

Contents: a bag of Vanille Exclusiv (my favourite tea from a small shop in Bamerg), a tea strainer, some Chai powder, a small bag of Ostfriesen Sonntagstee (another delicious tea), a skin for my Zen Stone mp3 player, spiced almonds, marzipan potatoes, Printen (ginger biscuits) and a greeting card.
Wow, what a nice surprise! Thanks Heleen.

You’ve established a new record: it took less than three days from Bamberg, Germany (Monday) to Tallaght, Ireland (Wednesday morning).
