Це сонячне фото нагадує про моє знайомство з Нідерландами. Ця країна мало у кого знаходиться в топі красивих і рекомендованих до відвідування. Вона не надто часто згадується у списках найбільш відвідуваних країн. Про неї майже не пишуть відомі мені тревел-блогери. А дарма! Країна й справді чудова і точно варта уваги. Це було кохання з першого погляду❤Ти їдеш у Євротур заради Праги, Парижу, Берліну, а найбільше вподобуєш Делфт і найяскравіші спогади та емоції пов'язані саме з ним. Приємне відчуття неочікуваного захоплення. Хочеться, щоб таких красивих та дійсно радісних відкриттів у житті було побільше;) #netherlands#delft#delftview#europe#eurotrip#trip#dearness_подорожі#beautifulplace#lovetravel#travel
I am interrupting my slow attempt to chronicle the last three weeks of my exchange to bring you some pictures I took in Ireland in May this year! 🌞
A week after my exams finished (and about two months before I was due to fly home to Australia), I caught the train up to Scotland where I spent about a week exploring. Then I caught the 'ferry' to a very rainy Belfast (I say 'ferry' but it was my first time on an actual ship) for a few days of Titanic-themed sightseeing and a day trip. After Belfast, I caught a bus down to Dublin, where upon arrival I spent 45 minutes wandering the streets and holding my phone out in front of me like a compass, searching for my hostel in the fading light. I spent the next day on a bus that would take me to the Cliffs of Moher and Galway!
The Cliffs were amazing. Some of 'The Princess Bride' was filmed here (inconceivable!), and that movie is wonderful and dreamy and silly. The Cliffs were littered with tourists sitting on the edges of rocks and gazing out to sea while their friends took pictures, but I was among them. Although I didn't have any friends there with me, but you know. It was still fun.
My brief time in Northern Ireland and Ireland, while wonderful, made me realise that I don't really love coach tours. Maybe they would have been different with a travel buddy, but while travelling solo, they felt a little too similar to those slightly painful primary and (sometimes) middle school excursions (back in the early-mid 2000s lol) where I would occasionally be left without someone to sit next to on the bus. The teacher would then have to shuffle me down the aisle to find a place for me that wasn't occupied. Not such a big deal as a grown-up (which is what I technically am), but it was a strange feeling to remember. Anyway, those tours were still excellent, because I wouldn't have been able to see the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge, or the Giant's Causeway, or the Cliffs of Moher otherwise.
