North Ireland

Last Weekend I joined a trip to the North coast of Ireland and Belfast.I captured some breathtaking moments with my camera and I am dying to show you some of the results.

First Stop: dark hedges

These trees were planted in the 18th century by the Stuart Family to impress visitors. Two centuries later they are one of the most photographed phenomena in Northern Ireland and have been used as filming Locations for series such as Game of Thrones.

2nd Stop: Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge

The carrick-a-rede rope bridge is a famous rope Bridge which links the mainland to the tiny Island of Carrickarede. The rope Bridge is 20m long and 30m high. Originally the bridge was built for the fishermen but is mainly a tourist attraction nowadays.

3rd Stop: gianst causeway

The gianst causeway were by far the most spactacular natural phenomena I have ever seen. The hexagonal shaped stones are just so unique and mysterious that you cant think of a way how this could have been formed. There are tow stories about the Formation of the gianst causeway.

Scientist say that it must have been a valcona that created those stones. Legend has it that two gianst, one from Ireland, the other one from scotland both built a bridge to reach one anothers country and  to battle out who is the stronger one. 

If you ask locals which story is true, they´ll tell you that there are no such things as volcano in Ireland.

4th Stop: Belfast
Our last stop was Belfast. We just had an one hour stay so we couldn´t really enjoy our time. From what I have seen the downtown looks really nice. As we were all pretty tired after that long day we just went for a coffee and a little snack. I´m sure I´ll come back to Belfast any time soon and you can be 100 percent positive that I´ll report you about that.
