How to Handle the Side of Study Abroad You Don’t See on Instagram

Apr 3, 2019 11:18:00 AM / by Emma Aulenback

You probably already know this: there's more to the study abroad life than what's posted on Instagram. After being in Dublin for a few months now, Emma talks about the experiences that make up the entire scope of studying, living, and traveling abroad. She also shares three important tips on how to go with the flow of each global city and embrace the good, the bad, and...the ordinary!

In this week's post, Emma discovers the sounds of Uilleann Pipes, a traditional Irish musical instrument, as part of her Irish Language and Culture course in Dublin. She also shares what makes this extraordinary instrument so special and even gives it a go at playing it!

“What did you say the address was again, girls? The GPS can’t seem to find this place.”

You know you are in for a real adventure when that persnickety little blue dot on the Taxi’s Google Maps starts having a meltdown. Desperately computing and recalculating...searching for the unsearchable. Gems are meant to be hard to find, right? Or wouldn’t we all be rich?

It just so happens that the meeting place for our CAPA course, Irish Language and Culture, was a cultural goldmine—full of good craic (the Irish term for FUN!)!
