Northern Ireland, day 1 and 2

October 10, 2009

Day 1

So I’m finaly here! Northern Ireland!! We spend all day yesterday travelling. First we took the plane from Oslo to Copenhagen, only to wait there for allmost six hours. I have to say though…Copenhagen Airport has to be one of the nicest ones I’ve been too. It was huge, but not too huge, and it had a gigantic tax free shop..The main shopping area outside the tax free made me feel kind of out of place though…Hermes, Burberry, Gucci….I was practically drooling outside the Burberry store.

We were all pretty tired from the bussdrive down to Oslo, so we spent most of the time in Copenhagen ust relaxing at a cafe. We almost fell asleep at the table (one of us, Katrine, actualy did *grins*)

So, after Copenhagen, we got on our flight to Dublin! Once we got there, we rented a car, and were on our way to Coleraine, Northern Ireland! It was dark when we drove, so unfortunately we didn’t see much of the country, but what we did see was stunning.  I loved this medieval-looking town called Armagh. Loads of small allies and stone houses 🙂

Of course we managed to take a few wrong turns, but at least we didn’t crash the car.  It all went pretty well concidering that we were driving on the oposite side of the road from what we’re used too.

When we got to our house (Yes, we’ve rented a house!  Or..Our contact down here has rented it for us) we got a pleasant suprise! It was awsome! We all have our own bedrooms with queen-sized beds, and we have a pooltable and everything!

On to day two:

Today we’ve pretty much just relaxed and tried to figure out where thing are around town. We found a grocery store pretty close by, and a great pub/restaurant, and now we’re back at the house, watching Top Gear 🙂 We’re planning a night in front of the tv or Eirik’s computer.*grins* And on monday, it’ll be our first day working here! I’m quite nervous though…I have no idea what to expect! But I’m sure it’ll be fine.

Anywho…I’ll post some pictures soon,and keep blogging about my experiences here.
