I have attempted to start this blog post at least five times and every time I start it seems unreal that I will be leaving for Ireland in four days. Four Days. Four days to fit in my last goodbyes and pack the last essential items. (Sadly my dog apparently cannot come with me in my carry on.) After months of planning and finalizing the details, the ‘excitement butterflies’ have set in for my trip to Dublin.

CAPAStudyAbroad_Fall2017_Dublin_From Elizabeth Leahy - Predeparture Thoughts.png

I have had the urge to travel since I was eight. I dreamed of traveling the world and having a map so full of pushpins that you could barely read the names of the cities. Since then I have taken every opportunity possible to explore the world. From the car trips with my family to Myrtle Beach to traveling to Vietnam with a class from my school, I have always been the first to accept adventure. Traveling to Dublin will be a step towards filling my map.

CAPAStudyAbroad_Sydney_Fall2017_From Hana Okhrimchuk Pre-Departure 1.jpg

To begin with, being a well-traveled person doesn't mean you can jump on a plane to another country and recklessly lay down…at least not for me. I've been travelling with my family since childhood. The last time I counted I have already visited 27 countries; and some of them even more than once. It still feels that there are just so many things to consider and plan before each trip. What I have learned is that it is worth to be worried and well-prepared, but never stop or give up. All of the issues I have faced while traveling, could have been solved with the help of communication and curiosity. I've learned that other traveling people have most likely been in similar shoes and will be willing to help you figure the way out.
