The week started in Northern Ireland with stunning coastal sunsets, a harrowing walk on a rope bridge, and the unique rock formations of Giants Causeway. In addition, I took a Black Taxi tour around Belfast – an eye opening and disturbing look at the city’s history and how they are moving forward. And of course while in Northern Ireland I had to have some Bushmills Whiskey while at the Bushmills Inn. The perfect way to get warm from a chilly day outside – a roaring fire and whiskey!
A beautiful sunset at Giants Causeway. Seeing Northern Ireland
The ‘blue lagoon’ in Ireland – beautiful dusk on the coast.
The Carick-A-Rede Rope Bridge hanging 100 ft above the crashing sea – it was more than a little wobbly! Fishermen erected the bridge so they could check their salmon nets. The original bridge had only a single handrope!
Northern Ireland’s coastal landscapes are stunning and also colorful when the sun decides to shine! This was the path out to the Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge. Even if you wuss out and don’t go on the bridge dangling bove the cliffs, you still get these views!
The rock cylinders of Giants Causeway – so much fun to climb on!
Clonard church and monastery where secret peace talks took place in Belfast. And one of the few buildings not destroyed in the neighborhood.
When in @BushmillsInn …well – need I say more?
Follow the arrow and let the good times roll in #Brussels at Place Saint Boniface.
Trinity College in Dublin. Not only were there fall leaves but also fall graduates. A beautiful fall day for a walking tour!
