Although our original plan was to go to the cinema, there was a unanimous decision to go for a Pub Crawl instead. There was no set plan as to where and when we wanted to go, but I guess that’s always the beauty of spontaneity!
After meeting a bunch of students in front of our school, we decided to head off to the nearest pub. We started with the chitchat and laughter, taking photos, and of course, drinking beer. Some chatted about the past week and general small talk, whilst others preferred a deeper topic of conversation and philosophised about life –could it be that the beer was already kicking in? Perhaps! Either way, we were all enjoying ourselves a lot.
At one point Pura decided to join in with the photo-taking fun, only to realise that she had forgotten her camera battery in her apartment! Two hours passed in the blink of an eye, so everyone decided it was time to go to another pub to change the scenery of things.
We popped into an Irish pub in which the atmosphere was welcoming and everyone felt right at home, which was a suitable setting for us to resume our beer drinking and photo-taking. What’s more, Katrin and James gave us a surprise visit, and added to the fun and banter.
After an hour or so, everyone felt the need to change the scenery again, so we started walking to Paceville. Everyone wanted to go to a Shisha bar, where we all sat down on sizeable cushions and enjoyed the relaxing music. Many conversations later we decided to call it a night. I did have a bitter sweet feeling though, because it was the last week of quite a few students, and I had to bid them farewell and hope we will keep in touch and that our paths will cross again in the future.
