My project is based on Dublin and Liverpool. I chose to do a project to research both cities as they are across the water from each other and have got some similar attractions.

My Passion

Geography was my favorite subject in school. I love learning about the differences between countries and also about what makes natural events such as Tsunamis or earthquakes happen among other things.

I have a real passion for maps and love looking at Google maps in my spare time. It is a great way of widening my knowledge of the world within my house.  I find it interesting looking at different parts of the world.


My Project

My project is a comparison of Liverpool and Dublin from a tourism perspective.

I visited Liverpool in the summer on a one day trip with a friend and enjoyed it. Lots of people have asked me if I choose Liverpool because I was a Liverpool FC fan , I know lots of people now visit cities because of football  but this wasn’t why I went there – I’m an Arsenal fan.

In my project I compare the two cities, the size, airports, and the tourist attractions. In it I draw on my own experience of the two cities.


My Future

I have now officially completed my education; I believe that education is one of the most important tools a person can have to progress in life.  I would like to have a job in that I feel comfortable, but I am uncomfortable if the work is too pressurized.

I’d like to get some part time or temporary work for a few months to get me into the work life and gain some more experience and try some things – perhaps in tourism advisory to start.

An example of a company that I might like to work for would be Irish City Tours. I think it would be an interesting job The other company that I would love to work with is Failte Ireland, I think it would be fantastic to help and support tourists coming into the office and inform them of some hidden gems within our country. Although I wouldn’t rule out other jobs that may suit me or I’d be interested in also I find it difficult to know.
