Posted:Hay hello how are ya'll? well as i said in my thread a wee while ago... my feet begine to itch. ow and no i dont have some icky feet fungus...i dont think... anyways i love my home very much, but im just longing to travel sooo much. i want to go every where. travel the world! iv always wanted to go somewhere and live for a wee while. i was thinking maybe somewhere in USA just a little town like nelson, or maybe some where over the other side. Scotland, Ireland area. iv had a few custermers come into work, the first one was scottish and i said that i was kinda thinking of heading somewhere over there to live for a wee while, and she said go to Ireland. the second one came it to my other job and i was chating to her and she said the same thing. that altho it was wet it was just such a lovley place. the 3rd were husband and wife form Ireland and i hit them up about it too. least be said they encarnted me with their storys. saying that the males over there were charming (to witch i replied anyone that speeks to me with that gorguse accent will have me smiten) they said theres a saying over there "charm the pants off you" witch we have here to but use diffeantly. and that that was what they tryed to do and their ambition in life. ubblol but mostly i want to go over there because i here that people are just so lovely. and that the except anyone... and party heaps! (alto as im not much of a beer drinking i might put myself to shame...)

anyways im and really thinking that itd be great to move over there and was wondering if there where any hoppers from Ireland or that have been to Irland etc and if you could tell me alittle more about it (coz i really dont no that much) and where would be a nice place to go.... that type of thing. so if you could thatd be grate biggrin PM me to if you want. thanks

Yes, yes, yes and yes to all of the above biggrin

It's a cool place, but the cost of living is quite high at the moment. I suppose we're used to it by now, but everyone that's been here lately tends to agree that everything is on the expensive side.

But don't let that put you off, you will get a job, of some sort. Are you looking for something specific or would bar/restaurant stuff do? There are thousand of Aussies & Kiwis here, and they're all working, so it shouldn't be any different for you. You will need a visa though, you'll need to check that out from your side, as I'm not too sure of the particulars.

Rent in Dublin may be a little more expensive that other parts of the country, but as long as you're willing to share with a few others it's perfectly managable.

Not that I'm trying to blow my own trumpet here or anything, but most people are nice, chilled & genuinely friendly, and a little mad ubbloco biggrin ubbloco

Gnorc is coming to visit us next month, I'm sure she'll be able to fill you in with tales of all sorts of shenanigans upon her return biggrin

Anything else you wanna know, just shout......

peace

I'd say you'd get bar work fairly easy and it's goodish money.

Posted:mmm.... Egypt ubblove I spent 6 weeks wandering around there about 14 years ago, that's when I was first bitten by the travel bug biggrin

I'm sure it's changed a lot since then, but I still regard it as one of the most amazing places I've ever been to.

You should go. The Pyramids and ancient temples alone are worth it. As is swimming in the Red Sea, with dolphins !

Lots of folks from down your neck of the woods move here or to the UK for a year or so and then travel Europe from here, it's much easier to get to around.

I'm thinking of packing up and heading to South America for a year before this year is out. Starting Spanish lessons soon so at least the ball is rolling ubbrollsmile

Posted:Go West! I love the west of Ireland.

It is cold, rains a lots and is expensive but sure you could find work to tide you over. Probably best to go between April and September weather wise if you are heading for 6 months.

Think there was a thread before on going to Ireland - do a search on place recommendations. If you looking for poi people to play with there are often spinny people around Galway though not sure if they check HOP. If you were to head down there and approach random people though sure they would be very friendlty.

Have fun if you decide to go wave

Posted:Heya smile

Ahhhhh... just can't resist.. gotta tell ya just how cool Edinburgh in Scotland is.... very very very very cool..... cool Decided about a year and a half ago now that I would venture over to the UK... was tossing up between Ireland and Scotland... having no contacts in either country I wasn't biased in anyway... ended up going to Edinburgh.. cos I had heard what a magical place it was.... was going to go for a few months... and ended up staying a year!! ubbloco

It is the most amazing place for spinners..... there is a huge community of incredible fire people over there... and all very friendly and inviting... ubbrollsmile The best thing is there is a regular Monday night in the meadows get together to do fire.. and it continues right through the winter... even when it snows!!! biggrin In fact one of our best nights was just after it had snowed.. everyone turned up and we had lots of fun spinning fire whilst dodging snowballs... eek!!

So from my experience... I would totally say go to Edinburgh.. you'll love it.. if u love fire twirling... !! I am heading back that way for the second half of the year... can't wait!!

In saying that I never got to Ireland (cos I got soo sucked into Scotland!) but a few mates who went said Galway was nice.. but there were still more fiery folk in Edinburgh wink

Good luck on your choice though... either way.. travelling is sooo much fun... !!!

Posted:Hi Fire Bunny smile
A friend and I are planning to go and work in ireland for a while (hopefully) next year too. When do you think you'll be heading over? I'm still doing lots of looking around like you and trying to figure out the best places to stay and to visit. Also trying to save money (It's SO hard!! LOL)
From the little bit of research I've done so far and from what ppl have said on here it seems like Galway is a good pick.
Maybe I'll see you over there! We can drink some guinness beerchug and have a spin weavesmiley
