Hey everyone! This is the 5th day, also known as the checkpoint. Half way through the
trip of a lifetime. Ireland has us all in a trance. I have never seen anything like this place. The people we have met are some of the nicest I have ever encountered. Although, I do have to say there is no place like home. I really do miss my family and friends. Everyday I am wishing that they could be here to share these beautiful experiences with me. It’s beginning to be more evident that I have some family right here with me. This group grows closer and closer everyday. We have been to some incredible places as you have read in previous blogs. My favorite has been Croagh Patrick. It was so invigorating to be there at the top with the guys. Looking out upon the mountains, knowing that God created all of this for us. I may have almost died from exhaustion getting to the the top, but it was completely worth it. I walked back down the mountain with Kyle. We took our time and that made me appreciate the beauty of the surrounding scenery.
Today, we went to Giant’s Causeway and learned about many legends of giants, of
course. We took around 30 minutes to sit out on the rocks and meditate or write in our journals. I really do not journal at all but I have found myself writing novels in my book. It is also extremely cool that we are here now because Great Britain has just voted to leave the EU. Northern Ireland voted to remain but overall England made the vote. We are here for the making of history.
Anyways, I am having an amazing time and am so grateful for the opportunity to be
here. Shoutout to my family, friends, and those who are special to me. I miss you all so much. I cannot wait to share my experiences with you! God bless. Toast!
