    ... our go pro selfie stick over the edge! I came up to the walkway and stood by the fence that separated the cliff and a farm. I was holding onto the metal line, not thinking anything of it, and all of a sudden a giant pulse/explosion went through my whole body. I just got electrocuted! Scared the **** out of me I literally checked my ears for blood. Naturally I cried haha. After being shocked, both literally and by the cliffs, we head back ...

    ... the tours would return with one less person due to being a victim of suicide. Really sad to think about it.

    After just over an hour at the cliffs, we made our way back along the coast and stopping in the town of Galway to catch our train back to Dublin. If I were to do it all over again, I would have spent more time in Galway. We were only there for about 45 minutes, just enough time to ...

    ... the island. Most of the roads were pretty gentle, but there were some hills we had to walk up.

    Inisheer was amazingly beautiful, just look at the pictures.

    On our trip back, the Cliffs of Moher were amazingly beautiful as well. It was interesting, though, because it reminded me of the Alaskan cruise where we sailed up a bay to see a glacier entering the ocean. From far away it’s not that impressive, ...
