With my Wild Atlantic Way road trip down the West coast of Ireland is only five days away, it’s time to get excited.
This will be my first road trip outside of England. I’ll be spending five nights in five different locations on my journey, all seemingly as beautiful as each other. This trip will be a perfect mixture of escaping the real world and getting amongst the great outdoors, whilst giving me an excellent opportunity to practice my ever-growing love for photography. Especially landscapes, which the West coast of Ireland will provide a stunning bounty of I’m sure.
This is said to be one of the best roads in the world to drive, the rugged and forever changing scenery providing the ultimate compliment along your journey. Travelling in November I’ll be lucky to get perfect weather for much of the trip, but that’s what makes for part of the adventure.
A look ahead to Nuremberg..
Finally, Nuremberg is booked. This is a trip I’ve been planning for many years now, even before I had the bright idea of seeing more of the world. I’ll be visiting and staying with some family friends during my time there. I cannot wait to experience the famous Christkindlesmarkt, the food and drink, the decorations and the atmosphere scream traditional Christmas.
I’ll also be attending my first German football match with my friend Becca’s boyfriend, Christian, to see the mighty Nuremberg FC take on SV Sandhausen. Back in September, Christian accompanied my father and I to watch the team I support, Plymouth Argyle. Unfortunately it didn’t turn out to be the result we wanted, losing 3-0. Hopefully I don’t bring any bad luck!
This trip will see my travels come to an end for 2017. But I can assure you of lots more to come in 2018. Keep an eye on my Destination Checklist to see which exciting destinations I have planned.
