Today was our last day in Kilkenny, we had a last day at work here and we had to say goodbye to all our irish colleagues. We’ve really enjoyed this trip – for sure, it was busy sometimes and we were exhausted after those working days, but it was worth it.
We did excursions, met new people and learned much new stuff about the irish culture (at work but also at home). So, this is one more thing to tell other people in Austria and all over the world out there, because:
We did it!
Alright, tomorrow we are going to come back home – and we are really excited about it.
See you 🔜 🔙 in 🇦🇹!
Mit ein paar Bildern möchten wir euch noch zeigen, wie wir unseren letzten Nachmittag ausklingen lassen haben.
We are living in Bennettsbridge during the exchange programme (~ 20 min. to Kilkenny by car). Our hostfamily consists of three kids (Rose 5y, Grace 4y and Jayne 8m) and our host parents Serena and Brian.
The kids are very happy when we play with them and they really enjoy speaking to us all the time so we can improve our english skills. Rose and Grace are both into camogie (hurling). Rose also likes to dance. We’ve had enjoyed the morning of the St. Patrick’s Day, as we were invited to watch her dancing to traditional irish music. It was lovely!
I’m working at Treacy’s Carpets and Furniture, it’s in Bennettsbridge. It’s around 5 minutes by car from our host family and around 10 minutes to Kilkenny. I really enjoy working there with my boss Francis and our colleagues. My current work is about refreshing the website – I’ve to watch out for some new furniture stuff from the supplier and also check if some products aren’t on the supplier’s stock anymore. And there’s already one thing I’ve learned: be prepared to wear warm clothes while working in Ireland! 🌡❄
Wir sind schon voll im Irland-Fieber – und das nicht zu unrecht. Schon in 9 Tagen geht es mit unserem Irland-Programm los! Heute möchten wir euch unsere Klasse vorstellen! Bereits zum Lehrgangsbeginn hat unsere Klassenvorständin fleißig dekoriert. Mit Plakaten haben wir unser Klassenzimmer nun weiter gestaltet, aber seht selbst!
Und bleibt gespannt! Verfolgt unsere Beiträge, denn jetzt wird’s ernst!
