It’s difficult to sum up this amazing experience but as I write my final blog I look back at those moments that are the most memorable to me. Running along the Thames river was one of my favorite things to do after work and the weather permitted. It was fun running from the flat to Battersea Park along the river, over the bridge and back again.

Chapter 4 - Painting Dublin Green - Dublin during St. Patrick’s Day was a truly unique experience on this journey. Many people from around the world set foot on the green filled city. Although it was cold and windy along the River Liffey, it didn’t stop the thousands of people from taking part in the celebrations. My first stop was the Guinness Factory. After entering the giant wood doors, everyone rides the escalator up to the main floor which houses the gift shop and visitor center. Looking up was a sight filled with glass elevators moving people through the atrium space, and green light flying through the space from end to end.
