Hi! I have been two weeks now here in Ireland, Tralee and I love it; people are so friendly, nature is wonderful and so green, and of course, Guinness is cheap and good.
I stayed two days in Dublin. The pubs are wonderful and the live music is lovely. St. Stephens park was worth seeing even though it’s going to be even lovelier in the summer, I think.
My placement is in University hospital Kerry. I’m there as a midwife student. I am not allowed to do so much but by observing you also learn. The difference to Finland is that they don’t really use computers when they document the patient files. The care is the same though. I work 9-12hours shifts which is also different compared to Finland.
I have 12 weeks left in the hospital. I’m going to be working but also travelling. Today I was at Bannastrand beach and it is the most loveliest place!! I will go and see also Cliffs of Moher, Galway, Cork, Killarney national park, Dingle peninsula, Glendalough lake etc.
Here are some photos:
