Photo Essay: Cruising Around Connemara, Ireland

Photo Essay: Cruising Around Connemara, Ireland

#Ireland is a dreamy country and you can feel like your the only person in the world when exploring the countryside. Discovering the #culture and #history is easy as the land is scattered with #castles and attractions, it was an #aspirational trip traveling thorough.


For me, Connemara was the most beautiful part of Ireland. I drove through the area twice, and lucked out both times with the weather.

Foggy, wet, grey Ireland? Forget that. IRELAND IS DREAMY.

IRELAND IS DREAMY

I love these stark, sparse landscapes of Ireland. Not a tourist shop to taint the horizon. Just sheep and a few trees bent sideways by the wind.

What a beautiful view in dreamy Ireland.

A week earlier, Scott and I started driving west of Ballina, into Connemara, and we found this pretty peaceful lake. There was a dude burning brush by the side of the road. The flames kept getting higher but we ignored them and continued taking photos.

Then we climbed back into the car and started driving, only to meet firetrucks on their way to put out the blaze. I love that we were happily snapping photos while this poor guy was probably panicking over burning down Ireland.
