Travel: The Giant’s Causeway

The Giant’s Causeway (2017)

I took this photograph when I was in Ireland and Northern Ireland for the Women’s Rugby World Cup. A friend and I decided to drive to this world-famous tourist site in Northern Ireland during the break between matches from the World Cup. We took the scenic route and it was certainly one of the highlights of that trip. An experience that I have to be grateful to my friend Sarah.

The rock formations are what people descend to this area for, but on this day my images weren’t coming out how I wanted them. So I turned around and started photographing the rocky hills that were nearby and this is one I took on my phone.

Sometimes, it’s good to have people around you who get your passion when it comes to photography. The number of times we stopped just to take the views were just too many to count and I am forever appreciative for her allowing me to be her travel buddy. Thank you, Sarah.

Ohh, she is really awesome at photographing sports. Check out her Instagram and tell her I sent you there.

If you are ever in Northern Ireland, I would highly recommend doing the scenic drive to The Giant’s Causeway and whilst you are there, stay at The Ardtrabane House Bed and Breakfast. Please call ahead and check for availability as it can get booked up pretty fast. It’s the best BnB I have stayed in and the owners are super nice. If looking for a place to eat for dinner after walking to The Giant’s Causeway from the BnB, The Nook, has fairly decent food at reasonable prices.

Have you got any site seeing recommendations that are ‘unusual’?

This was due to the fact I was waiting for my accreditation to be approved before I could apply for my visa*. Even then when I was submitting my visa application, I needed to have done it like 2 to 3 weeks prior to my travel date, but I was literally submitting my application a week or so and I was a wreck that week with worry because my accreditation was approved late. By the grace of God, my visa was approved the day before I was due to leave. I picked up my passport from the Irish Embassy after being in bed sick with migraine to only pack that very evening and leave the next day. I really enjoyed my time in Ireland/Northern Ireland as the days when there were no matches, I got to see a bit of the country. […]
