The highlight of this tour was Cliffs of Moher and I absolutely could not wait. We got to see several small and quaint towns along the way and I only wish we stayed there for a little longer. I enjoyed the castle stops too but found it hard to take photos close up, but got several good ones from afar, at least I think so!
Unfortunately when we got to the Cliffs it was VERY foggy, apparently this happens when it’s warm so the mist gets stuck at the top of the cliffs, I don’t understand how that works but it’s the only justification so I’m just gonna go with it. At first I was really bummed because I was excited about all the photo oops that place had to offer and how excited I was about going. But I realized as I walked around how cool the fog was. As Kristen had put it, it seemed like we were walking on a path in the clouds! I was definitely a little frustrated because it was not the excursion I imagined it would be, but it’s okay because I got some really cool fog photos. We also left our ponytail holders on a fence that had many of them linked up together. It was almost like the locks in Paris.We also spent a good portion of our time at the Cliffs talking to and petting the cows, which ironically enough was a highlight of the day. They didn’t like me but Kristen got along well with them. There, I got a really pretty celtic knot necklace from one of the shops, explored the museum, and we headed to Doolin where they had the quaintest little place to eat. It was rainy, and a little chilly all day, but apparently that was the norm for Ireland, so weather-wise we were apparently very lucky for the rest of our trip. However, I really enjoyed the rainy weather, aside from it creating fog on the cliffs.
