The Craic in Belfast
So it’s coming up on a month in Belfast, Northern Ireland!
The apartment is really coming along the way we want it to be! I’m loving it more and feeling more comfortable and at home in it everyday. I also love the public transport in Belfast. The bus flies into town, only taking five minutes to get to city centre, otherwise I’m walking a nice 25 minutes which still is pretty great. And the bus drivers are typically nice here?!? I swear the drivers in Dublin would bark at you or say nothing at all. People are generally friendly here in Belfast. Another bonus, which to me, is a big one.
The weather was very generous and we got two weeks or so of pure sunshine. However, it’s back to drearier days now. I don’t mind though! I’m away to France on Thursday and I’ll soak up the sun there (;
I’m still job hunting but keeping busy by socialising with friends, making new friends (I’ve met some lovely ones so far!), networking and running errands. I’m also taking this time to dive into things I’ve been wanting to devote some time to like lifting weights, baking & cooking, and reading. Life is pretty good.
And blogging of course! There is much more to come for RedheadAmerican.com! (; I’m very excited to share more plans this summer.
Speaking of which, have you entered my giveaway on Instagram? I’ve teamed up with Crann to giveaway these Irish wooden sunglasses in the style ‘Gra.’ Aren’t they fun? They’re comfy too.
‘Gra’ means love in Irish. ‘Crann’ actually means tree, hence all their products are Irish wood, which is brilliant, so local! I do love to support local where I can. I always have ever since my dad opened up his own glasses store in my hometown about ten years ago. It’s so important to support local businesses. And I mean in any scenario, skip Cafe Nero or Starbucks and hit a new cafe run by your town or city’s residents!
Anyway, back to the giveaway! You can win these if you’re in the UK or Ireland for free. Who doesn’t love free stuff?! All you have to do is comment on my Instagram post tagging a friend, make sure you and your friend are following both me and @Crann.Co and then comment on @Crann.Co’s giveaway post with me in it for an extra chance to win! Closes June 29th. Winner picked randomly that day.
