My Irish Adventure

Okay, so I promise I didn’t intentionally not write a post yesterday, I ended up working a double/overnight and I did try writing a post on my phone, but that didn’t work out too well since phone screens are rather small and the internet at work is slow and I was extremely tired. Oh also I didn’t do anything too exciting this past week to be considered an adventure, so I’m going to a do a little spurt on the time I went to Ireland this summer. Now before this would have been considered a “Pretty Place” post, but with the name of my blog I decided to change it to “My (blank) Adventure” so yeah.

Okay so first picture is from a lock bridge in Dublin, which has to be one of my favorite places in the world. Not the lock bridge but Dublin. It’s super pretty and it’s filled with culture, and rather than huge chains of restaurants, Dublin has a lot of pubs, small restaurants, and boutiques, that I think makes it seem like a more genuine place. It is one of the biggest cities in Ireland, if not the biggest city, and I felt so safe there, there was never a place that I walked that I was like, whoa I shouldn’t be here, everywhere I went I felt surrounded by the kindest people.

This picture was taken at the Cliffs of Moher, which was just filled with breath taking beauty.  It was a very surreal experience however, there were suicide prevention signs everywhere which made the experience kind of sad but other than that my cousin and I had a wonderful hike.

Okay well unfortunately I have no idea where I took this picture, but I love it because I believe that it captures the essence of Ireland almost perfectly. One of my favorite things in Ireland is that it’s exactly how you imagine it to be, little villages filled with pubs and wonderful, whole-hearted, and kind people. If I had to choose anywhere to live not in a city, it would have to be in Ireland. It is just sheer beauty and contains everything good in the world.

Anywho, this is my Irish adventure, well the second. I have been fortunate enough to be able to visit twice, once with People to People and the second time with my grandparents and cousin. Both were amazing and beautiful trips and i loved both of them so much.  I hope you like this new segment, it’s a little different than the “Pretty Places” ones and this is how my Saturday post will be formated probably.

I also wanted to add another New Year’s goal, which is try to make a difference in someone’s life once a day, even if that’s just putting a smile on someone’s face. Completely off topic, I know but just want to keep you in the loop.

XOXO
