Windy Rocks and Winding Roads

January 11th, 2016 | Uncategorized

I had a lot of fun traveling around Ireland with my brother Johnny and sister Katherine the past few days. After spending Christmas at home, they flew back with me on January 6th and we had fun exploring. Katie was a driving champion – adjusting not only to driving on the other side of the road, but also to the unfamiliar twisting and bumpy roads! After spending a night in Galway, we drove to the Cliffs of Moher, where we were figuratively blown away… and literally almost blown away. The wind up there was crazy! (Hence the selfie difficulties we encountered – as you can see in the photo) I had previously heard so much about how beautiful the Cliffs are, but seeing them in person still took my breath away. I found the whole experience so humbling – it was a reminder of the sheer size of this planet we live on, and of our smallness in comparison. After heading back to Carlow for basketball practice, we set out again the following day to drive the Ring of Kerry. I was surprised to see white-capped mountains out there, and loved the spectacular views along the entire drive. I often get teased for always falling asleep as soon as a car starts moving – but this was definitely a trip I kept my eyes open for! The natural beauty of Ireland is so inspiring. I feel so appreciative for the beauty that surrounds me.
