These past five weeks are ones that I will never forget. Thanks for the meme-ories.

It’s here, it’s the end. It feels like just yesterday I was landing in Belfast and struggling to learn everyone’s names. Although these past five weeks have been short, I have done and seen so much.
This farewell is bittersweet; on one hand, I’m excited to go home to see my family, some of whom I haven’t seen in months. But on the other hand, I wish I had more time with this group and in this country. I’ve had such an amazing time getting to know new people and places. I hope to have the opportunity to travel like this again someday. Not only did we get to see parts of the world that I didn’t even know existed, I got to learn so much about the culture and history of a place that was once a foreign concept to me. It still doesn’t feel quite real.
There have been laughs, there have been tears, but most of all, there have been memories that I will look back on and smile. I know that this isn’t the end. I have made friendships that I’m sure will last a lifetime. Hopefully, I will be back here again sometime soon. Thank you to everyone on this trip that made my time great. See you guys on the other side of the pond!
