Ireland film scans are back! I can now share a few photos (both digital and film) from our trip to my homeland. The first few days we were in Galway which I loved…although we didn’t make the most of our time there because of 1.) jet lag and 2.) Cooper had to adjust to driving on the other side of the road. We did get to have a great dinner/drinks with friends and went to a true Irish pub where two drunken Irish men arm wrestled. Oh, and another highlight: I went swimming in the pool at the hotel and it was the first time in my life where I wasn’t the only really really white person in the pool. In fact, Cooper’s farmer’s tan was much much darker than any of the other skin tones. I surely loved fitting in.
First up for photos: Cliffs of Moher. Breathtaking? Yes. Touristy? Yes…until you go beyond the fenced areas and live life on the edge (literally, ha!). My Dr. Scholl’s insoles for lower back pain made me slip around in my shoes too much to totally feel secure on the cliff’s edge but it was a great sight nonetheless. Just writing about it makes me weak in the knees.
The trip wouldn’t be complete without Cooper doing a jig:
