I Drive too slow; Irish Castles, Cliffs and Churches

29 Apr

So, two days ago I’m confidently driving down a winding Irish road. And I’m congratulating myself on driving as dangerously fast as I am. And I’m not just saying it was fast because I’m on the opposite side of the road as I would be Canada, driving stick shift on the opposite side I’m used to. I’m saying it was uncomfortably fast for a road that’s big enough for one and a half cars. And as I’m responsibly thinking “Wow, maybe this is a little too fast”, I look to my right as a mid sized vehicle with a seventy year old man driving with his wife passes me.

I mean, I’m not a slow driver in Canada. I like driving quickly… I only saw the back of his head… He could have been younger…

Either way, my driving has brought Lydia and I to some really stunning locations across Ireland. Ancient churches and monasteries, castles built by Vikings, vast cliffs and mountains and Oceanside. And as we head northward from Galway tomorrow morning, I leave you with a small taste from each.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
