    Northern Ireland

    September 11, 2016 in the United Kingdom

    Irish (I wish haha) we could go back to the beautiful landscape of Northern Ireland! It's hard to compare the scenery of the north and south but both in their own ways were equally perfect!

    Causeway Coast day 44 Tue 5 Jun 2018

    June 5 in the United Kingdom

    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

    Giants Causeway

    June 30 in the United Kingdom

    The Giants Causeway. (Damm des Riesen)
    (https://de.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giant’s_Causeway)

    Ein Naturschauspiel der Extreme. Ca. 40.000 Basaltsäulen die von der Natur geformt wurden. Ein UNESCO Weltkulturerbe. Absolut Phantastisch!

    Ein ‚Must See’ in NordIrland!

    Carrick-a-Rede

    June 30 in the United Kingdom

    Beinahe nebenan ist Carrick-a-Rede.

    Leider haben wir hierzu keine Karten mehr bekommen (schließt schon um 16:30), so das wir dann auch auf den Spaziergang zu Hängebrücke verzichtet haben.

    Ein paar Bilder gibts doch dazu.

    Mmh.🙄
    Nett wenn man Zeit dafür hat. Ein Must See?
    Eher nicht! 😎

    Antrim Coastal Drive, Northern Ireland

    August 31, 2017 in the United Kingdom

    Today was a beautiful sunny day with bright blue skies, a great day for sightseeing. Our first stop travelling from Derry was to the Dark Hedges, around 94 enormous Beech trees planted over two centuries ago. The avenue of trees appears in the series Game of Thrones.

    We then followed the Antrim Coastal Road to the Giant's Causeway, a massive expanse of interlocking basalt columns, a result of volcanic activity. The coastline on such a perfect day was breathtaking. The vivid blues and greens in such contrast to the grey of the basalt.

    Next we traversed the Carrick-A-Rede Rope Bridge. A rope bridge 30 metres above the sea that allows fishermen to access their boats off a headland point to catch migrating salmon. Now the rope bridge is used mainly as a tourist attraction but there was a boat on the adjoining island that the fisherman still use. In Larrybane Bay you could also see the remains of a fort which sat on the headland around AD800.

    We continued along the coastline where we saw pretty coastal villages, a patchwork quilt of fields, and desolate plateaus laced with pink heather. The sides of the hills were hedged by compact shrubs and blackberries to form "ladder farms". These run up the side of the valley and give each farming family an equal share of lowland pasture and steeper land which is used mainly for grazing sheep. After navigating blind summits, hidden dips and yield signs for sheep and cows we finally reached Belfast in the late afternoon.

    Giant´s Causeway

    September 26, 2016 in the United Kingdom

    Die letzte Station auf unserer Tagestour und für mich definitiv einer der besten Orte der ganzen Reise ♥

    Eine Felsenschlucht in perfektem grün mündet in eine Ansammlung von vulkanischen Steinformationen, die vollkommen surreal wirken: Mehr als 40.000 fast perfekte sechseckige Säulen stehen hier, eine neben der anderen, wie Teile eines Puzzles. Ohne Frage, Szenen wie aus dem Bilderbuch!

    Laut der wissenschaftlichen Version zur Entstehung, ist diese Felsformation auf das Erkalten von Lavaströmen und den Einflüssen von Hitze und Kälte zurückzuführen.

    Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge

    September 26, 2016 in the United Kingdom

    Weiter geht es zur Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge.

    Und zwar handelt es sich um eine kleine Hängebrücke, die in 30 Meter Höhe, auf die vorgelagerte Insel Carrick-a-Rede führt. Zur Brücke gelangt man, nach einem rund einen Kilometer langen Fußweg entlang der sehenswerten Küste.

    Carrick-a-rede

    October 2, 2017 in the United Kingdom

    We just trecked many, many Kilometers to cross an obviously unsafe rope bridge to a little island in the Irish sea that has nothing on it. FORTUNATELY it was extremely windy so we were unable to cross the bridge. Absolutely stunning scenery though. There's a little island about 2 km out with 11 whisky distilleries. We've had to physically restrain Colin from swimming out there.
