Lynn Carson—So, one of my friends is studying abroad in Ireland this semester. At the end of February, she posted a status asking if any of her American friends or family would be visiting her. My mother saw the post and asked if I would like an early birthday present. Two weeks later, I was on an AerLingus flight courtesy of my mom to go visit my friend over Spring Break. I’ve been really fortunate to have some amazing opportunities for travel in the last few years, opportunities that people keep telling me will get harder when I graduate. So I thought I’d share my trip with you guys, and maybe encourage you to take advantage of these opportunities as frequently as you can while you’re in college.
