Carrick-A-Rede and Giant’s Causeway

Browsing the book Epic Drives of the World: The Planets Most Thrilling Road Trips, seeing what were the tips of road trips across Ireland and Scotland, we came across this place of breathtaking and seemingly wild landscapes. Since it was winter, with snowstorms and none of us had experience driving in the snow, we chose to take a tour to those landscapes.

We woke up early, the day was cloudy and cold in Belfast. We were at the point marked to wait for the bus that came from Dublin with more tourists. There was a slight delay due to a road accident, but soon we boarded the bus and after about an hour we arrived at our first destination, Carrick-A-Rede and Larrybane, an arid beach with many cliffs and an unusual attraction: Rope Brigde, a rope bridge linking a small hill in the sea to the cliffs.

Holidays for me must be in an exotic place and warm place. If it has sea, better still. But trips are not always for me, in 2016, I made a vacation my my father and we made Holland on a bicycle. Now it was Marcelo’s turn to choose the vacation spot, he chose Ireland, Northern Ireland, and Scotland. And since we had holidays in February/March, it would be in the cold and in the snow. Well, it was not my ideal, but out of love, anything goes. We started the trip in Barcelona and ended in Berlin because it was the two cities of Europe where I had lived and wanted to show Marcelo a little of life there. Barcelona was also, to buy winter clothes since living in Salvador, Marcelo had nothing.

Dublin would be our first vacation stop, but we only stayed one day in the city...
