Yesterday was the most exciting day so far. First, we took a trip to Old Trafford, the stadium where the team Manchester United plays. As a big soccer, I mean football` fan, this was one of the things I was really looking forward to do, and it didn’t disappoint! We started out by shopping, and then a few of us took a tour of the stadium. It was so fun, we got to go into their changing room! I also learned a lot, especially about the Munich Disaster, which I had no idea about. Then, we went back to the hostel and went shopping for a bit. Not far was all of these great shops like Louis Vuitton, Lacoste, Burberry, and Gucci; of course we just looked in. We played a game that night against “North”, consisting of girls from Wales and Scotland, including the Wales national teams’ goalie. We won 10-7! Afterwards we hung out with the players because they were generous enough to cook food for us. As of right now, I am sitting in the port with my teammates, waiting for our ferry to Dublin!

We arrived into Dublin after a 2 1/2 hour bus ride and a 3 hour cruise from Holyhead to Dublin. Last night we checked into our hotel and headed to a local pub where there was a live Irish band and a 45 minute Celtic Dance show.
Today we are taking a trip to the country side in County Wicklow to Glendalough. After some free time hiking in the country side we will return to Dublin for our final game vs. a developmental team of Ireland.
