I’d rather be back exploring the Cliffs of Moher in Ireland.
Some of the most epic cliff sides I’ve ever seen.
I’m excited to be leaving on another adventure tomorrow to the St. Louis area. I’ve been in one spot for too long.
Part of the reason I love to travel is it just revives my soul, it makes me feel alive, my brain is processing all these new things and I can feel myself growing spiritually and mentally, and all the little worries I left behind seem insignificant. .
I love being at home with my kitten and my creature comforts, but I need to be exploring and expanding my mind just as much. Too much time in one place makes my mind get lazy and turn inward I think, and I end up focusing on the wrong things. .
But when you walk up to a view like this, you realize what really is important to you. And for me, right now, it’s my love affair with creating the most out of the life I’ve been given, and capturing as much of it as I can. 📸💕

Irish fisherman catching today’s dinner. When we arrived at the lighthouse and had spotted Barry and his father preparing their fishing rods I tried to get a good frame of them in action. They later asked me to take a few pictures of them as it has been a long time since their last father and son fishing trip. Now one of the images is hanging at their home. Grateful for all the moments abroad where I have met locals and listened to their stories. #widenyourworld#localexperience#localstories#travelmoments#travelportrait
Kilkenny Castle 🤩 might be a good place to stay when it is getting darker
Kilkenny Castle in Kilkenny, Ireland built in 1195 to control a fording-point of the River Nore 🏞️ and the junction of several routeways. It was a symbol of Norman occupation and in its original thirteenth-century condition it would have formed an important element of the defences of the town with four large circular corner towers and a massive ditch, part of which can still be seen today on the Parade. 😀
The property was transferred to the people of Kilkenny in 1967 for £50 and the castle and grounds are now managed by the Office of Public Works. 🌺 The gardens and parkland adjoining the castle are open to the public. The Parade Tower is a conference venue. Awards and conferring ceremonies of the graduates of "Kilkenny Campus" of National University of Ireland, Maynooth have been held there since 2002 ⭐

Some graveyards has a very special atmosphere 😳 Clonmacnoise is one of them but don't be frightened
The monastery of Clonmacnoise 🤩 (meaning "Meadow of the Sons of Nós") is situated in County Offaly, on the River Shannon south of Athlone.
Shortly after his arrival with seven companions – at the point where the major east–west land route through the bogs of central Ireland along the Eiscir Riada, an esker left by the receding glaciers of the last ice age crossed the River Shannon – Saint Ciarán met Diarmait Uí Cerbaill who helped him build the first church at the site.🏞️ This was a small wooden structure and the first of many small churches to be clustered on the site. Diarmuid was to be the first Christian crowned High King of Ireland. 🙂 In September 549, not yet thirty-three years of age, Ciarán died of a plague, and was reportedly buried under the original wooden church, now the site of the 9th-century stone oratory, Temple Ciarán🏛️ .
Die "Cliffs of Moher"💛 Ich bin mir sicher, dass ich eines Tages hierher zurückkommen werde. Der Tag war still, nur der Wind peitschte immer wieder über das flache Land. Menschenleer. Ruhe durchkreuzte die Alltagswelt. Ich fühlte mich frei.
Beautiful weather at Slea Head 🤩
Slea Head 🤩 is a promontory in the westernmost part of the Dingle Peninsula, located in the barony of Corca Dhuibhne in southwest County Kerry. 🏞️It belongs to Munster's province (County Kerry) and is served by the R559 road; the nearest villages are Ballyickeen and Coumeenoole. The headland itself, together with the larger part of Mount Eagle's southern slopes is formed from steeply dipping beds of the pebbly sandstones and conglomerates of the Slea Head Formation, dating from the Devonian period and traditionally referred to as the Old Red Sandstone.
Just to the northwest of Slea Head is Dunmore Head, the westernmost point of Ireland.🗻 Slea Head is a well known and recognised landmark and also a very scenic viewpoint, with a dramatic view of the Blasket Islands. On the 11 March 1982, the Spanish container ship, Ranga, was wrecked at Dunmore Head, close to Slea Head after losing power in a storm.😳

So I know it's a cliche to sit on the edge of a cliff with legs extended and taking a picture like this while this not even taken on the actual Cliffs of Moher rather than on some cliffs by the road leading there, but it's just so tempting to do it! Having nothing underneath you but a stormy sea and not much to hold on to just gives you this extraordinary feeling of being right there at that exact time with nothing else on your mind but that very moment. Exquisite 🤙
Je vous souhaite des rêves à n'en plus finir et l'envie furieuse d'en réaliser quelques uns.
Je vous souhaite d'aimer ce qu'il faut aimer et d'oublier ce qu'il faut oublier.
Je vous souhaite des passions, je vous souhaite des silences.
Je vous souhaite des chants d'oiseaux au réveil et des rires d'enfants.
Je vous souhaite de respecter les différences des autres, parce que le mérite et la valeur de chacun sont souvent à découvrir.
Je vous souhaite de résister à l'enlisement, à l'indifférence et aux vertus négatives de notre époque.
Je vous souhaite enfin, de ne jamais renoncer à la recherche, à l'aventure, à la vie, à l'amour, car la vie est une magnifique aventure et nul de raisonnable ne doit y renoncer sans livrer une rude bataille.
Je vous souhaite surtout d'être vous, fier de l'être et heureux, car le bonheur est notre destin véritable.🗝
Je vous souhaite (1968) -

I’ve truly hit the ground running since the turn of the year. But truth be told, I’m not yet ready to fully dive back into everything full force. I can attest that burn out is real. So, for now, I’ll reminisce on this row of color found wandering in Ireland.
Hey IG friends! Have you spent time in Ireland? Do you have tips for where we should stay for a 6-night visit? We’re mostly interested in the west for this trip. What are your favorite cities/towns? Can’t miss attractions? Tell me here or DM me! 🍀🌈🥃🎻💚🇮🇪 #travelireland#irelandtravel#eringobragh
