Most of the posts from our UK + Ireland trip so far have been about specific attractions or sites encountered during our trip and haven’t included everything we saw in one city or town. The reason for this is twofold. The first reason is because we take a lot of photos. Between the two of us, we took 7,478 photos, and we didn’t have both cameras running each and every day. So if I included all the site from one city, the posts would be even longer than they already are (they would be enormously long if I included all the photos from one entire day of our trip). The second reason is because we didn’t spend too much time in actual cities or towns. Most of our stops were at attractions located in the countryside. So with all of that said, I believe this is the first post about an actual city – the city of Bath, UK.
My apologies for the lengthy travel posts lately. I have so many wonderful photos from the amazing places we visited on our trip and this summer is so full of weddings this year, that I know there isn’t going to be much time for me to share these here (or edit them in general). So with all that said, here is another post from our trip.
The first castle Dave and I visited was Dunamase Castle in County Laois, Ireland. In actuality, it is better known as The Rock of Dunamase as it is in complete ruins, which was completely awesome! We had been through a bit of western Britain and a few highlights in Dublin, and we were driving across Ireland to the west coast to stay near the Cliffs of Moher. We decided to stop here because it wasn’t far from the highway and I had thought Dave would find it neat (and I was right).
As this is the first post from our trip, I am going to open this post with a general statement. For my 30th birthday, I planned a big trip around the United Kingdom (and Ireland). It was about two and a half weeks long and was packed full of great things. I will be going through the images we took and making a few blog posts about the things we saw and places we visited. That being said, it is most likely that I will never post all of the images from our trip, nor will the posts themselves be in any logical order.
