|Thank you to Mrs. LaRoue for pioneering this GSWLA travel website! You Rock!|
We have arrived in Northern Ireland! We had a couple hour delay leaving Norfolk heading to Newark due to not having a plane yet. We made it to Newark, everyone was scrambling to charge their phones and devices. We all got something to ate and we sat, slept and played Uno (even with the Costa Rica rules) while we waited and waited and waited for our flight that was also delayed and didn't end up leaving until after midnight (it was supposed to leave at 9:20pm). Mostly everyone slept on the flight and we had a smooth trip through the border and met our screaming with excitement host families. I haven't heard any complaints via email or text from students so everything must be fantastic! My host family has been fantastic and took me on a quick sight seeing trip through Belfast, where I took many videos from the passenger seat of the car. Some students will be visiting Belfast tomorrow or even visiting Dublin. I can't wait to see what tomorrow holds!!!
