Ancient Times through Today’s Eyes Lynsey Clark Dublin and London, April-May 2015 HIST 102, Gordon Knutson I experienced more than just education when I studied abroad. I experienced a new love for the world. At every corner, I was able to absorb new knowledge and experiences that have shaped me in the person I am today. My study abroad trip also taught me how to view some of the world’s most beautiful countries and their people in such a positive way. While in Ireland, I was able to snap a picture of Audley’s Castle and since then it has been my favorite photo from the trip. To me, it shows the great value of history that is presented in Ireland; I believe it brings the past and the present together. I find it amazing that one object is able to express such great history, as well as, forming new stories for the future. While studying over seas, I made new friends, countless memories, and truly caught the traveling bug!
