05 Dec A Photo Essay: Northern Ireland
Originally, I wanted to visit Northern Ireland to see two sites, but sadly, I missed out on both of them! The first item on my list was the Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge–I have been wanting to cross this bridge since I happened upon a photo of it in middle school. Needless to say, I was super disappointed when we arrived to find out it was closed due to the wind. The second place I had wanted to visit for quite some time was the Titanic Museum, but due to our schedule, that didn’t work out either.
We still managed to have a great time and I really loved exploring Northern Ireland. Thankfully, I had planned on other adventures to fill our time, and I became equally excited about them in no time at all. We took a road trip up to the Giants Causeway and also took a Black Taxi Political Tour which was extremely interesting due to the shocking and sad history of Belfast. With the nice and helpful people everywhere we turned, it was a great couple of days even with the rainy weather we encountered. We took in castles, cliffs, gorgeous landscapes, and city murals, as well as ate fish and chips the size of our heads!
