Once on the way, it was only a short drive to the village of Bushmills and the Giants Causeway. We were advised to avoid the Visitors Centre as a tourist trap. So we did. The cold wind was absolutely howling as we walked the 500m to the first section. The rock formations were very interesting - a whole lot of hexagonal columns from an ancient lava field.

Another long drive ahead. Overall, it was a really good and relaxing weekend. Exactly what I needed. ...
Let the adventure begin. We started the day with a lovely breakfast and then headed to our first activity. We went hiking. We were led by one of the locals and his dog. It was nice to experience nature and go for a nice peaceful walk. He walked for about two hours and then stopped and had lunch. After this, a bus took us to the beach.
