3 month itinerary

So here is my itinerary of where and when I will be traveling starting May 15th.

May 15th-Fly from Pittsburgh to Dusseldorf, Germany with a 10 hr layover in NYC :-( I spend the next ten days visiting the Anders, family friends, in Duisburg, Germany.

May 26th through June 1 - I visit my friend Justin in Paris, France. Justin and I worked together at the J&R summer camp two summers ago. I believe he is currently getting his Phd in Paris.

June 1 through June 4- I meet up with Jill in Amsterdam. Jill is a very close friend from West Chester. We met through the dance company.

June 4 through June 7-Jill and I fly over to Galway, Ireland. We hope to see some dance shows since Galway is known for it's performing arts scene.

June 7 through June 11 - Jill and I head over to Dublin. Jill leaves on the 10th and I spend an extra night on my own.

June 11 through June 14-I fly to Berlin to meet up with the Anders and some of their relatives. I am not sure what our plans are in Berlin, but I have been instructed by my brother to visit the Jonglier Katakomben (a juggling hostel/training facility) so hopefully I get to do that.

June 15 - I fly back to Ireland to begin my project. I spend the next two months at the Leades Project farming. I hope to travel a little on the weekends or my free time.

My family comes to Ireland on August 6th to check out where I've been living for the past two months. When my program ends on August 8th we will travel Ireland until August 14th. Then I head back to America!

So those are my plans. If you have any suggestions of sights to see and places to go, please tell me! Thanks!

  1. Galway - my favorite pub was Monroe's. It's over the bridge from Quay street. I would try to get to the Aran Islands and the Cliffs of Moher.

    Dublin - St Patrick's Cathedral, Christ Church (which is where I was for New Years). If you can make it over there, I'd try to get to the Kilmanhaim Gaol. It's a prison, it's farther away from the main city, so I didn't get to check it out, but I heard very good things about it. Also, in Phoenix Park there's a huge cross that's pretty astounding when up close.
