When I think about a possible study trip to Ireland, I have to say that I would love to go there, because it´s our topic this year and I think this country has an interesting historical background and the landscape is great. After reading A Star Called Henry, we learned so much more about the Irish history and it would be great to see some places, where for example the Easter Rising took place. I hope this trip will be a great experience for our course with a lot of new impressions of Ireland.
