... valley that was actually deserted, but beautiful, to the little village of Long Corrib, to the city of Galway, I couldn't have asked for a better way to spend my Sunday. The pictures do not do these views justice, and the sunny skies definitely helped. It was unreal to see that many mountains in Ireland. I never even knew they existed!

If the bottom of the heart is facing forward on your right hand, you are single. If the heart bottom is facing your wrist on your ...

Travelling our way along the west coast

... to work out at times. The road numbering system is similar to the UK and is easy to follow.  Our final stop for the day was Muckross House which is a stately home that has been restored. A guided tour was really informative and gave us lots of insights into the way they lived. Queen Victoria stayed there for a grand total of 2 nights but that was ok because they gave  them 6 years notice of her intended visit.
