Momsie, twins, Sx, Hazel, the Tany's, Uncle Ian, & R texted me throughout my 5 days alone in Dublin. They made sure i ate, helped me look for places to visit, & even help me find the contact & address to make a temp passport. Their support & encouragement gave me the strength to step out of my comfort zone. I was, or rather still am, a person who doesn't like to be alone. I was always so dependant on everyone ard me. Thus, i took for granted what i shld be doing myself. I was scared to death. I had to find my own way & i suck at reading maps. I lost my way so many times. The worst day was when i lost my way & have been out the entire day. & All i wanted to do was to get back to the hostel and rest. Then it started pouring so heavily & i had to use the bathroom so badly. All shops started closing at 6pm. So there were no toilets i cld use. Man, i was freezing cold. My fingers were numb as hell. I was wearing sandals!! Idk why, but in London & Ireland, their shopping bags are in the form of paperbags. They do not have plastic. My paperbags were soaked and it tore. All my clothes were wet. My camera was moist. I had to go into a random store and ask for 2 paperbags. The sales woman was kind enough to give it to me & she even helped me.
So, i decided to attend the Cliffs of Moher tour. Which momsie & Uncle Ian encouraged me to do so. My day started at 630am. Found my way to the pick up point, hopped onto the coach, & off i went on my solo adventure. The tour took an entire day which i returned back to Dublin at about 930pm.
The view though, was breath taking. I loved it. But i felt lonely. I wished my family was w me enjoying the moment. I wish R was w me hugging me, keeping me warm. It was mad cold. But from this trip, i learnt to open up to strangers. Meaning, i took the courage to talk to others. I even made a new friend otw. Who is a Taiwanese. She is a lovely girl.
P.S. Im off to Vietnam, HCMC, in a couple of hours. Its currently 436am. My flight's at 130pm later! (: Flying solo this time.
