The Mysterious Colors of Killarney Ireland


This week I crossed oceans and time zones and landed in my 61st country – Ireland.  I am so happy to finally make it here as 8 years ago Ireland was on my original itinerary, and thanks to my obsession with Asia – I never made it here.

The Adventure World Travel Summit is what finally brought me here, but I intend on staying for a while beyond the conference to test my driving skills on the Wild Atlantic Way.  The Wild Atlantic Way is the longest coastal drive in the world – 1,500 miles winding through little villages, farmlands, and beautiful vistas.  I’ll be meandering and adventuring my way solo through portions of the route over the next two weeks. My favorite things about road tripping solo is to meet new people along the way – and I know that Ireland has no shortage of great, friendly people who like to chat over a pint.

Enjoy my feed from Killarney!

Arrived in #Ireland to a big storm. You don’t come to Ireland for the weather.

Tonight I lost my Guinness virginity. I not only drank my first one in #Ireland but I poured it myself too!
