It was a perfect 3 day exploration, packed with many inches of this lovely island. It not only inspired this blog but it strengthened my belief that this is the most magical place on earth. Ideally I could spend months and years making that journey around the coast of the Republic of Ireland, but in the meanwhile, that was one hell of a 3 day ...
