Ireland on a Bike

Friday, March 7, 2014

This is a special post. It's special for a number of reasons, but most importantly because there are a lot of pictures of my wife. I have no idea how, or why, but she manages to put up with my wandering and wayfaring ways and my random bouts of inspiration and depression. She's a phenomenal woman. After we got married [the day after, actually] she began a shift at her job that started at 11p and went until around 10a six days a week. Not ideal for someone who is a self-proclaimed - actually, I'll spare you the adjectives... not a morning person, let us leave it at that. This crazy shift went on and on but when she eventually came up for air we immediately got on a plane. To Ireland. With a couple of changes of clothes, a water bottle for each of us, and our bike helmets. Honeymoon.

We flew into Dublin and bus hopped across the country to the west coast where we got on bikes and biked from point to point for 9 days. Of course there was a heat wave going on and we were dying and begging for some of the rain that we'd prepared for, but no dice. We did bring home some rather nice sunburns, though. What follows are a few of the images that I made on the trip with a camera phone that I borrowed from my brother. It was an Apple and 1st or second generation I think. I don't know. All I could really figure out how to do was push the shutter button because that big button at the bottom was broken. So you're lucky you're even seeing these... When you're on bikes you have to travel light, so this is what you get. I hope you enjoy them. We had a blast and can't wait until we find a new place we'd like to explore on our bikes. It's the best way to see the world, hands down.
