My current fav spot in #ireland, Spanish Point (at Spanish Point Beach)
The perfect little cottage on the Irish countryside. Can I move here please? (at Spanish Point Beach)
I talked to this horse for about 10 minutes. It can get lonely traveling the Irish countryside alone! 🍀 #solotravel #ireland #clare #roadtrip (at Fanore)
Sunday Dec 8th
Left Minneapolis pretty much on time at 11:48a. Arrived in Chicago, but taxiied a while and John was waiting there to pick me up. We went to Yazy and johns house where I hung out with the girls and them for a few hours. We attempted to eat at panera before they dropped my off, but bad weather conditions made the drive slow and we ended up not having time. Once back at ORD’s international terminal 5, I boarded on time and it appeared that everything was good despite the snow, but we had to wait to be de-iced. We ended up taking off 2.5 hours late, but the plane was also empty so at least it was relatively comfy. It was just over 6 hours flying time, so we arrived in Dublin only an hour late the next morning around 10. I slept alright on the plane, prob due to the sleeping pill I took. The movies also sucked so I had no motivation to sleep. All in all, I slept at least 4 hours I think.
PS- A man working at MSP called me “kiddo” and an Irish man I chatted with on the airplane said I was very brave! :)
Stormy, windy evening at the Cliffs of Moher on the west coast of #ireland. Such a crazy day involving me driving stick, left handed, across the entire country of Ireland. I was getting cocky with my driving skills, but apparently navigating became too much because I ended up in the completely wrong place (like, 150km away wrong)… Just had to laugh, and by then I was determined to make it to my original destination. Going back to the cliffs again tmrw when I have more light. For now, off to the pubs in Doolin, population 200! :) (at Cliffs of Moher)
