Walking Travels – an Irish walking adventure

Walking travel is definitely the slowest means of transport, unless you count a 26 stop bus for 7 km! With everyone wanting to get somewhere fast and experience everything in record speed, just to get back home and relax, walking travel is definitely not for everyone, but its worth it! You get to experience a town and really get into all those little nooks and crannies.  Its also the best way to walk off all the delicious food you’ve been eating.

We’ve been walking miles upon miles, forgetting to take food and trying to eat a tofu horse when we get home, but its been really fun and also really cheap.  We like things cheap here, so if we are able to walk it , we will and we shall!   So off we would set with google maps in Carl’s trusty hands and my who cares if we get lost attitude, ready for any adventure that might come our way.  Trying to really tone down our tourist vibe, by speaking in super hushed voices, to a point that we would have to read lips, but adventures are always had and things are always seen.  Trying to take everything in and really get swept up by the beauty of Ireland.

^^ We don’t drink, but when you find the heineken factory, you have to take a photo.  Walks in Cork City.  I didn’t like Cork city much, but if we all liked all the same things the world would be a really boring place.

^^ One day we decided we really wanted to walk to this bridge to just look at the river.
