Recently I made a trip to Ireland, and it was absolutely beautiful. At this point, I have traveled to France, London, Italy, and Berlin all of which had beautiful architecture and great food. However from my personal experiences, buildings begin to look the same after some time, but there is something about nature that never gets old. I think that is one of the two reasons I loved Ireland the most. I traveled throughout Ireland’s beautiful countryside and it was as picturesque as Hollywood portrays.
The landscape was incredibly green and had pastures of sheep and cows grazing on green grass. There were ruins of medieval fortresses all over Ireland, which made this country seem like a land from fairy-tales.
The other reason I loved Ireland was the community of strangers. Although I did not know anyone there, the people were incredibly nice to me, and were genuinely interested in engaging me in conversation. I made friends with guitarists at bars, and I was told traditional Irish folklore from strangers. From my experiences Ireland is full of lush green landscapes, and friendly, cheerful folks!
