Ein neuer Blogbeitrag ist da! 🎉 Wir berichten über unseren 1. Besuch hier in Irland.
Falks Eltern besuchten uns Anfang Mai für 4 Tage, in denen wir sehr viele tolle Dinge in & um Clare unternahmen. Freut euch auf viele wertvolle Reisetipps, Bilder & Videos! 😊📸 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀
Eins unserer ersten Reiseziele war die Saint Brigid’s Well in Liscannor – die wohl beliebteste & berühmteste heilige Quelle Irlands, obwohl die grüne Insel insgesamt mehr als 3000 solcher Quellen beherbergt. 😇 Abertausende von alten & neuen Andenken, Fotos, Kerzen, Gebeten & Stofffetzen schmücken die feuchte & etwas unheimliche Grotte.
Wenn man sich etwas Zeit nimmt & offen dafür ist, wird man die mysteriöse Anziehungskraft der Quelle & des Drumherum bemerken, die sie selbst in einem Land, das für seine Mythen & Straßenrandschreine bekannt ist, besonders macht. 🧙🏻♂️✨🧚🏻♀️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

A new blog post is there! 🎉 We report about our first visitors here in Ireland. Falk’s parents visited us in early May for 4 days, in which we did many great things in & around Clare. Be prepared for many precious travel tipps, pictures & videos! 😊📸 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀
One of our first destinations was Saint Brigid’s Well in Liscannor – probably the most popular & famous holy well in Ireland, although the green island is home to more than 3000 sacred wells. 😇 Thousands of old & new souvenirs, photos, candles, prayers & scraps of cloth adorn the damp & somewhat sinister grotto.
If you take your time & are open to it, you’ll notice the mysterious attraction of the well & the trappings that make it special even in a land known for its myths & roadside shrines. 🧙🏻♂️✨🧚🏻♀️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀

Sunset on the Atlantic coast. Ireland is one of the best countries to watch mother nature put on her nightly show.
Due to our high-up northern hemisphere position, our summer sunsets are long and lingering. Sunset chasers have the benefit of Ireland’s (relatively) smog free skies, and proximity to the sea, making for an altogether more spectacular sunset experience.
For a country that doesn't see a huge amount of sunshine, on a clear night, an Irish sunset is something to behold.

The Power of Water || El Poder del Agua (Torc Waterfall, Killarney; County Kerry. Ireland). "Don't get set into one form, adapt it and build your own, and let it grow, be like water. Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless — like water. Now you put water in a cup, it becomes the cup; You put water into a bottle it becomes the bottle; You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend." Bruce Lee.
Torc Waterfall, located a few kilometers away from Killarney, in County Kerry, is one of the most impressive cascades in Ireland. Although the car park is only a few minutes away from the main waterfall, the short path to reach it immediately introduces us into a magic forest, that is more reminiscent of tropical areas of our planet than of these latitudes of northern Europe.
When we reached the waterfall, we could not hide our astonishment. It had rained a lot in the days before our visit to Killarney, so the cascade appeared before us in all its splendor. The water was falling hardly and soon I knew that reaching the next level of the waterfall, which has a whirlpool and from which I intended to photograph, was going to be an almost impossible task. Still I decided to try it, I took my shoes off (I did not have water boots in Ireland yet) and I went barefoot into the water. Its icy temperature invited to think it better, but still I decided to continue. Step by step, I advanced very carefully through the slippery terrain, my tripod and my camera in one hand, and the rest of my body as support. When I had almost reached the next level, there came a point where advancing more would have gone from a certain recklessness to absolute foolishness. Therefore, I decided to take some photos from that place and return to the starting point.
In the end, this photo that I took from the place where my girlfriend had waited patiently while I was inside the waterfall, has turned out to be my favorite, since in it you can appreciate all the power of its water, and it will always remind me that for some minutes I was part of it. #discoverireland#ireland#descubreirlanda#loveireland#turismoirlanda#killarney#torcwaterfall#kerry
