Next Stop, Ibiza

rain 51 °F

Well, it's been a while since I've blogged so tonight would be a great time to get going with this again and play some catch up. So it's been six months since I first set foot in Ireland. Been a hell of an adventure thus far. Although part of the reason I came here didn't work out, I'm trying to carry on and make the best of it here. During these six months, I've met some amazing friends and have had the most unbelievable experiences seeing the most breathtaking sights this beautiful country has to offer, which I've only scratched the surface!

Tomorrow I'm off into deep Europe for the first time. The destination is the tiny Spanish island of Ibiza, located off to the south east of the Spanish mainland and north of Algeria, Africa. Many of the Irish locals, when I tell them where I'm going often have a puzzled look and statements like, "why on earth would you go to Ibiza?" or "I didn't know you were into the rave scene." Let's just say that I understand their questions now. Ibiza is knows as the party capital of Europe. Similar to Goa, India this city is a free-for-all for anyone who wants to party, uninhibited and non-stop. I guess I didn't really do much research before I booked but late April is a tame part of the year so I'm expecting it to be quiet... Ok ok, I lied, I thought I might run into J-Lo.

Really, I'm just looking forward to soaking in the warm Mediterranean sun and exploring the unique merge of Spanish, Greek and Roman cultures that still inhabit the island and I hope to see some fantastic sunsets!
