Hey guys, so I will try my best not to miss anything that I experienced, we did so much stuff in 1 week that it felt like 1 month, but actually we had so much fun that time flu and I wish we stayed longer:).
In the first day that we arrived we went for a walk in the park and a little bit of sight seeing, then in the evening we went to the Olympia Theatre in Dublin at a Agnes Obel concert, a spectacle of lights and sound and talent, I really recommend going to her concert if you ever have the chance, I did not know who she was until then and I fell in love.
Hey guys, imi voi da toata silinta sa nu ratez ceva din vacanta noastra in Irlanda, am facut atat de multe lucruri in 1 saptamana incat am impresia ca am stat 1 luna:P, dar defapt ne-am distrat asa de tare ca a zburat timpul si mi-ar fi placut sa stam mai mult.
In ziua in care am ajuns in Dublin ne-am plimbat prin parc si prin oras apoi mai pe seara am mers la un concert Agnes Obel la Teatrul Olimpia, un adevarat spectacol de lumini, sunet si talent, va recomand cu drag sa mergeti la un concert de al ei daca cumva aveti ocazia, eu nici nu stiam bine cine e si m-am indragostit imediat.
….and yes…my hair looks like this in every photo, the wind there is CRAZY!
On our second day there, we went on a boat cruise to Howth where we ate such a delicious burger (they really know their meat) and then we did a cliff walk for about 2 hours, it was a bit challenging I must say, because the rain popped up and the wind was very harsh, other than that the sights are to die for, totally worth the effort. As you will see, on this day my boyfriend jumped in the freezing water and got a serious cold that stayed with him for the whole trip, he is still sick now actually. (don’t get in the water):))
In cea de-a doua zi am mers in Howth cu vaporul, unde am mancat cel mai delicios burger (ei chiar isi cunosc carnea) si apoi am facut o plimbare de 2 ore pe stanci, a fost o adevarata provocare pentru ca ploaia isi facuse aparitia si vantul era mai agresiv ca de obicei, in afara de asta privelistea e absolut superba, a meritat fiecare gram de efort facut. Dupa cum veti vedea, in aceasta zi prietenul meu a intrat in apa rece ca ghiata si a racit…a stat racit toata vacanta si e racit inca si acum. (nu va bagati in apa!):))
I know it was no sun for sunglasses, but they were very very good to protect my eyes from the wind (I guess I will say wind a lot in this post:))
On our 3rd day we went on a guided bus tour to the Cliffs of Moher …OMG they are so overwhelming, I felt like nothing compared to the greatness of Mother Earth, if there is something you need to do while in Ireland, go there! You won’t regret it. We took a bus from Dublin and it took about 3 hours to get to the other side of the country, in Clare where the cliffs are. I really loved the bus trip because I got to see exactly what I imagined that I was going to see (from the movies P.S. I love you and Leap Year, both some of my favorite movies), a lot of limestone fences and landscapes with the most greenest grass and the architecture of the houses is very unique, I love the fact that the government insists on the preservation of the historical look of the villages, it really makes Ireland look like a fairytale ❤ ….and man they have a lot of cows:D
In cea de-a 3-a zi am fost intr-o excursie cu autocarul la Stancile lui Moher…nu am cuvinte sa spun cat de coplesitor este acel loc, ma simteam ca o bacterie pe langa maretia creata de mama natura, daca sunteti prin Irlanda si vreti sa faceti ceva memorabil, mergeti acolo! Am luat autocarul din Dublin si a durat cam 3 ore pana sa ajungem in partea opusa a Irlandei, in Clare, acolo unde sunt stancile. Mi-a placut tare mult experienta cu autocarul pentru ca am trait imaginile pe care visam sa le vad (ca in filmele P.s. I love you sau Leap Year, ador ambele filme), o multime de garduri din stanca si peisaje cu un gazon si o iarba ireprosabil de verde si ingrijita si am apreciat faptul ca legistatia irlandeza insista pe pastrarea originalitatii si autenticitatii satelor, face cu adevarat ca Irlanda sa fie unica, scoasa ca din basme ❤….si wow…cate vaci au:D.
On our 4th day we took a very desired walk on the beach in Malahide (the posh side of Dublin), there you can also see some great house architecture, but with a more modern and expensive twist and you can easily get fooled by the sun and the sand, but trust me…the weather is not swimming friendly. Then we visited the Malahide Castle and Gardens and we had a lovely and quiet lunch with our dear friends. (we miss you already).
In cea de-a 4-a zi am facut o plimbare pe plaja in Malahide (partea posh a Irlandei), acolo deasemenea pot fi vazute arhitecturi interesante la case, dar cu o nota mult mai luxurianta si moderna, si nu va lasati inselati de soare si nisip, vremea chiar nu e prielnica pentru o baie in mare. Apoi am vizitat castelul si gradinile din Malahide si am luat pranzul cu dragii nostri prieteni de care ne este deja dor.
On our 5th day we again took a longer walk thru the city center, we visited the business area and also some shops for souvenirs, Ireland is very proud of it’s culture and well known luck, so there is plenty to see and to buy.
In a 5-a zi am facut o plimbare mai lunga prin centrul orasului si in zona business, am colindat si prin magazine in cautare de suveniruri, Irlanda este foarte manda de cultura ei si binecunoscutul “noroc Irlandez”, asa ca sunt foarte multe de vazut si de cumparat.
On our last day we took a rest and had good and long conversations, there is so much more to see, as specially in the Northern Ireland, but maybe next time we will go there also.
So as a conclusion, I love Ireland, I don’t even know what I love the most….the landscapes or the city, or the most friendly people that I met in my life…I know the weather may seem a bother, but it really isn’t such a problem, you can enjoy life and the joy of traveling even when it’s cold or windy or the rain just won’t stop:P. The only things I would advice you is that you have a warm hooded jacket and some extra cash on you, because the cost of living in Ireland isn’t that cheap, I mean I couldn’t stop comparing prices to Romania and I had a little mental stoke every time I did…:)), but you can manage for sure.
Thank you for reading and see you soon! Kisses
In ultima zi ne-am relaxat si am petrecut mai mult timp conversand, stiu ca sunt mult mai multe locuri de vizitat, mai ales in Irlanda de Nord, dar poate ca data viitoare vom merge si acolo.
Deci ca o concluzie, iubesc Irlanda, nici nu stiu ce iubesc mai mult la ea, peisajele superbe sau vibratia orasului, sau cei mai prietenosi oameni pe care i-am intalnit in viata mea….stiu ca vremea poate parea ca un ghimpe, dar sincer nu e chiar asa o mare problema, te poti bucura de calatorie si pe frig sau vant sau ploaie:P. Singurele sfaturi importante pe care le-as da ar fi sa aveti o geaca grosuta cu gluga si ceva bani in plus la voi, pentru ca stilul de viata acolo este destul de scump, eu cel putin nu ma puteam opri din a compara preturile lor cu cele din Romania si aveam un mic atac cerebral de fiecare data:)), dar sunt sigura ca va descurcati.
Va multumesc ca ati citit si ne vedem la postarea urmatoare! Pupici
