Between semesters, I had the opportunity to fly across the Atlantic with some friends, and spend my winter break exploring the sights of the United Kingdom and surrounding areas. Most exciting for me was my first trip to the Emerald Isle. Though there was lots to do and enjoy (Guinness, kissing the Blarney Stone, St. Patrick’s Cathedral and, of course, more Guinness), nothing could quite compare to the Cliffs of Moher.
These amazing cliffs on the southwestern edge of the Isle are stunningly breathtaking and, though I also slipped off at one point, it was a highlight of the trip. These pictures can’t quite do them justice, but, if you ever find yourself in Ireland, they are definitely worth the trip.
