Good morning everyone!
I’ve been quite busy lately. I went home to visit my family in Germany and now I am in Cork, Ireland! I will start a new job next week. Having travelled for more than four years now, I always think things will get easier, but for someone like me who is quite anxious, I get incredibly nervous every time. It’s good to get out of your comfort zone, but it’s always a challenging adventure. Sometimes the struggle seems too much, even though I know that it’s usually worth it. I have gotten more relaxed and usually know that things will work out (and if not, there is always another solution around the corner!) eventually.
I have arrived in Cork on Sunday. It seems like a nice city, I really enjoy the river with all the bridges and the cute buildings in the center. I’ve had to organize quite a few things first though, getting a PPS number (done) and then trying to get a bank account (still ongoing – more difficult than I thought it would be) and finding accommodation. I stayed at a hostel for the first two nights, now I’m moving to an airbnb place for the first few weeks. Ireland is very expensive, I have to get used to that first. I’m not sure how long I’ll stay – it depends on my job as well. I still miss Australia and New Zealand a lot…
Can’t wait to visit Cobh and Kinsale and see the ocean. Any recommendations for things to do in and around Cork?
