open roads, bright skies + plenty of sheepies: road tripping’ through ireland
If you know even the bare minimum about me, you know that I love to travel. [and puppies + french macarons]
Somewhere in November I woke up with a spark and texted one of my best friends ‘I have a crazy idea, are you sitting down?’ Twelve hours later our flight was booked + we were all set to venture out to the Emerald Isle.
Ireland has long been on my top five. I had heard for too long about the sprawling green country side, the scenic coastal byways, the frolicking sheep + happy cows + kind people over in the land of the a thousand welcomes.
Since we wanted to see as much a possible, we rented a car from Dublin + did our own tour around the country + the Republic of Northern Ireland. They drive on the opposite side of the road which works surprisingly alright for ones slightly dyslexic like yours truly. My friend navigated + I drove the entire island in four days [please ask about my gold star]. It was slightly intense at times, truly majestic at times + so much fun all around. Days were filled with clocking miles, eating scones, listening to tunes + Bo Burnham and perfecting our Irish + English accents. Best not to inquire about those…
I was most enchanted by the kindness of strangers wherever we were, the stillness of the morning hours spent at the Cliffs of Moher, the cherry scones at Dunnes + animals that were so happy they were actually smiling in our photos!
Here is a highlight of our journey:
