Another overcast and wet day on the west coast of Ireland. Travelled firstly to the Cliffs of Moher which are high cliffs on the Atlantic coast. Unfortunately visibility was reduced to almost nil. Nextly drove through limestone district of Burren ...
... hitchhike down the rocky road to Dublin, let's hope i survive!
My lyrics are awesome ey??
But I jinxed myself.
The bus got caught in a Traffic jam for 2 hours, I felt sick to the point of throwing up and had to ask someone for more water, got sunburnt on my bum (well above my bum) because i didn't realise my top was pulling up and got heatstroke.
So no-one can tell me I haven't done the Rocky Road to Dublin. No-one.
... Then I met Grace and Laura.
Two lovely Irish girls I began talking to.
I had a couple beers with them and then went into town.
Somehow I ended up in a car and got scared (I was with them still) and so I only had one drink at the pub and walked home.
But on the upside, one of them knew Keith Harkin! One step closer in my six degrees of separation.
... was fun.
Honestly guys don't realise how easy they get it (Patrick...told you I mention everything).
A couple of the guys went back in at what I thought was 5 (it was 8, but saying that I thought it was 7 and it was 4:30) and I went with two of them to go and watch from the rocks.
The light doesn't makes sense up here. It wasn't dark until 11! And I think the only reason Patrick came ...
... it was fun before that ride.
That ride changed me.
I had a bit of help getting going because I didn’t know how to judge this type of break, but once I was up.
Once I was up, I understood why people love surfing.
I won’t ever forget how free and on-top-of-the-world I felt standing up and looking out at nothing but blue shiny, unbroken water. Water that hadn’t been touched by the power of the wave yet.
It was like gliding on glass! ...
