    Northern Ireland drives

    November 11, 2019 in the United Kingdom ⋅ 🌬 7 °C

    Yesterday we hit the open road! Driving out of Dublin up to Belfast. Igor did great driving stick on the other side of the road and car (so weird!). We got some snacks on the way - a classic northern Ireland delight, a Whopper... :)

    When we got to Belfast we took it easy, enjoying the Hilton Lounge and played cards and chess.

    Today we started our adventure visiting the building site of the Titanic!

    Now we're about to see the Giants causeway, we're sitting in a little cafe at the causeway hotel waiting out the storm (so that it's only slightly raining and not hailing!)

    On our way here we got to drive by a filming location of game of thrones - the dark hedges, pretty awesome trees, I get why so many things are filmed in Ireland! Very picturesque and unique.

    Alright wish us luck venturing out into the rain!

    Causeway Coast day 44 Tue 5 Jun 2018

    June 5, 2018 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    Breakfast at 8am at Aarnmore bed and breakfast Portrush County Antrim. Drove towards Portballintrae stopping to photograph the Dunluce Castle ruin as well as releasing a trapped bird inside a rubbish bin. Parked the car above Runkerry Beach and commenced walking Section 3 of the Causeway Coast Way to the Giant’s Causeway visitor centre crossing the Bush River as well as the Bushmills railway tracks on the way. We also passed Runkerry House built in the early 1860’ies. Watched a large pod of dolphins swim along the coast from the cliffs. Also photographed an Oyster Catcher bird. Walked down the road with masses of people and photographed the famous tessellated area. What the tourist information does not say is that the cliffs beyond the tourist area also contain bands of hexagonal basalt columns. The coastal scenery in this area is outstanding. We walked Section 4 of the Causeway Coastal Way to the ruin of Dunseverick Castle the back to the car, twenty seven kilometres in total. Dinner in Portballintrae. Steak two nights in a row.Read more
