Farewell, again

I said a very emotional goodbye to Mark and am preparing for my big departure. I saw so many beautiful things here in England and felt so many strong emotions, it will be difficult for me to leave…I have never liked endings — they fill me with sorrow. Sadly Mark is working today so I must take a taxi to the train station, then a train to Gatwick airport, then a plane to Dublin and then a bus to my hotel…phew, I’m exhausted just thinking about it!! I hope I manage not to get lost or miss something; makes me a little nervous but I’ll be fine. I found a good deal on the Internet for my hotel (40% off) so I booked five nights! It was only a tad more expensive than a private room in a youth hostel and have a look at how lovely it is:

It’s in Dublin 4 (the lower the number, the closer to the city centre and even numbers are generally in better neighbourhoods), which is great as I can walk to the city centre in about 15 minutes! I will have my SWAP orientation session on Friday at 11:00 a.m. in Dublin 2 and then I believe that some fun will be in order! I am going to check this out: http://www.spwc.ie/ — free entertainment sounds good to me!!

The next days will be very hectic for me; I will have to find a flat, find a job — although there is no big rush for that as I’ve been offered some more editing contracts with the same organization because they were very happy with  my work! It’s really the flat that will be the most difficult thing because the ads are presented in a very different way, it’s almost impossible to tell if it’s a self-contained unit (what we would call an apartment) or if it’s shared. This one looks good: http://www.daft.ie/searchrental.daft?search=Search+%BB&s[cc_id]=ct1&s[a_id][0]=pc2&s[a_id][1]=pc4&s[a_id][2]=pc6&s[mnp]=&s[mxp]=500&s[bd_no]=1&s[pt_id]=4&s[move_in_date]=0&s[lease]=&s[furn]=1&s[search_type]=rental&s[transport]=&s[advanced]=&s[price_per_room]=&s[refreshmap]=1&limit=10&id=737342

We shall see!

I’ll try to post one more day of my trip to England before I leave here but I’m not sure I’ll make it!!

Once settled in my new flat it will be much easier for me to keep on track, I promise!

Thank you Mark for letting me stay with you over the past two weeks.
