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.
... because he couldn't see.
Did I mention that they are amazing surfers? Did I also mention that although I am not a great surfer I managed to keep up.
Paddling wise and also just went out a bit further. When I wasn't faceplanting a wave or falling of my board from lying down....so basically when I wasn't surfing, I felt quite good!
So yeah, good night! And goodnight!
Lisa xo ...
Before I travelled, I never understood when people said ‘it brings me alive’.
Heck, I still might not. I’m more tired than I’ve ever been in my life, but I know the meaning. The ‘on-top-of-the-world’ feeling.
I surfed back home, not well, but enough to be fun.
And today Sebastian and I were conquering the West Irish coast.
Well, we were getting a lesson in Bundoran so we didn’t kill ourselves.
We got there early ...
