The Burren in County Clare is a beautiful spot, where you get to see the stone surface uncovered from the earth. It is a pretty magical place and we had some adventure there too, involving a mysterious little dog and a baby goat!
As I had mentioned a loooong time ago; Imke and I went on an amazing roadtrip all across the west coast of Ireland. Following the Wild Atlantic Way. An amazing route along the coastal roads of the west coast, offering amazing and scenic views, from ragged cliffs to high mountains and rolling hills. Ireland really has everything! I had never imagined it to be as beautiful as it is! I always imagined Ireland as green rolling hills, some cliffs here and there but that was about it. The landscape was so much more varied and with so much more raw mountains than I expected(I don’t know about you, but I didn’t really expect high mountains atall!) Our trip was quite extensive as you can see on the map of our route;
This was roughly our route; we ended up taking a slightly different route from Cork to Blackvalley, but I’ll be sharing a post on that soon!:), stayed at hostel 12 (Dún Chaoin) as well and saw a bit more of the coastal roads than we planned. At one point I will get around to making a detailed map of how we ended up driving!
I fell even more in love with this country during that roadtrip!
I’ll be posting more about the things we saw and experienced during our time on the road. But for now I just want to share Imke’s blog posts of tips for those wishing to drive the Wild Atlantic Way!
As you might have read before; My girlfriend and I are living in Ireland for half a year whilst she is doing her internship here(I’m here just for fun;) )
However, what I hadn’t told you is what her internship is actually about; Blogging and creating content for the Irish youth hostel organisation An Óige about their many different hostels!. Recently one of her supervisors at the company asked if I was interested in creating content for them as well, and joining Imke on her travels to hostels, which I obviously would not turn down! So you can expect short blog descriptions with a url to the original blog that I wrote for the An Óige blog whenever we have travelled to hostels 🙂
Our first trip together was to the Wicklow Mountains. Even though I was not asked to create content back then already, I joined Imke for 2 days on her trip while I was off from work. Because it would feel silly to write exactly the same story she already wrote for An Óige I would much rather just refer to her blog post; which you can find over here.
I’m very excited to be able to write for them as well, and looking forward to our first big trip together! March 12 is when we will leave on our Wild Atlantic Way road trip of 9 days(including spending my birthday on the road!) So stay put for more travel updates after that!!
