On Wednesday and Thursday nothing really exciting has happened so I can tell you a little bit of my way to work. I´m housed in Lad Lane Apartments in the south of Dublin, like you see it at the map. I have to go to the industrial in the north of Dublin. So every working day I go a little bit more than 6 km to work and in the evening back. You think it is a long way? I think it is OK. You get used to it. The bus ticket is expensive, roughly 120€ a month. So I walk and safe money 😉
On Monday, the 13. April, my girlfriend visited me for 8 days. Of course I have to pick up my girlfriend from Airport. I mean it´s a foreign city in a foreign country. Her flight arrive round about 11.30 pm. It was not the best time I think but it was quite cheap. But now you see the problems and cost to reach the airport of Dublin and return to the city. There is only one special bus line to reach the airport. One trip costs round about 8, 50€. So the total costs amount to 25, 50€. Who cares? The flight was cheap.
On Tuesday after work we made a tour through the city and buy some foodstuffs. There are many impressions you can make in a foreign city in a foreign country. For example the driving on the other side, particularly by crossing the road. Even the buying of food and the cash up is very exciting the first time. You can scan your stuff alone without any personnel.

On Saturday we went out to hike up the cavehill. It was an exhausting trip but it was also worth it. The view was breathtaking! At it was.. how i say this.. untouched natur, just some trails to work through the woods and on top you could stay with your toes at a 50m cliff without any barriers and this was very nice. In Germany you would have all those security arrangements or even worse.. a tourist attraction lookout with payment to watch the view..
Had a nice muscle ache and Sunday as always… resting!
