I have now been in Ireland for 12 days! I have 3 more days left and I am definitely not looking forward to leaving, anyway, my last blog that I posted was 5 days ago in Donegal and I have done a ton of stuff since then, so I thought that you might want a "quick" summary of those past days. Late afternoon on the 25th, I left Donegal and drove to my grandfathers side of the family, who live in county Mayo. I spent two nights with them and helped them on their small farm. I fed a 2 week old calf that they have at the farm with a bottle of milk, and I also tried to pet one of the baby sheep out in the field in front of their house, but instead I almost got stampeded by the herd. I had a great time with the other side of the family, but on the 29th I left early morning for Dublin, the capital of Ireland. Before heading straight for Dublin, I took a detour and toured along the western coast of Ireland. I stopped at the Cliffs of Moher for some short sightseeing, they were so amazing and I am glad that I stopped to see them. Then, I headed onto Dublin, going northeast. I arrived very late tonight in Dublin and will be touring the city a little bit before I leave on my flight to Hungary in 3 days.
