During my last few days in Avoca, I decided to do some nature hikes. Firstly, on Wednesday I walked about 10km on the Wicklow Way, which is a famous hiking trail in County Wicklow and about 132km long. The countryside through the Wicklow Mountains National Park was grant. I walked near a region called Luggala, where they were shooting the Vikings. Therefore there were many TV production companies. In spite of the their trucks, I took some nice photos for you.
The following day I went to Glendalough, which is another village in the Wicklow Mountains National Park and part of the Wicklow Way too. There I walked about 15km among forests and lakes. Finally I decided to hike on the top of the mountain Mullacor. It was very tiring.
On Friday I went together with the family Clissmann to the Arklow primary school of their daughter Zoe. They had a project day with many desks from different countries. For this reason I stayed at the German desk togehter with Zoes father Kilian, who is a quarter German, and some German aupairs. It was grant to see the kids smiling. The day contiunued with good news. I received my PPS number and my debit card. So everything worked and I won't have to do much red tape in the following weeks. Afterwards I traveled to Lucan, where I will stay for minimum 1 month with the family Canning. They welcomed me very lovely and I am happy to stay here. Lucan is situated in the east of Dublin and next to Leixlip, where I start working on Monday at the HP company.
On Saturday I watched a football match of little kids and in the evening I went to Dublin City Centre to visit some Pubs together with Anna from
Ravensburg and my flatmate Stefan. I just can recommend Irish whiskey!
