After travelling all day yesterday, we didn’t really have the energy to write any blog posts. We just checked into the hostel, walked down to the piers, and slept for about 10 hours. Today we did some grocery shopping before picking up our rental car and driving down the west coast of Ireland.
Driving wasn’t as difficult as I had feared. Yes, the Irish drive on the wrong (left) side of the road and the driver’s seat is on the wrong (right) side of the car. Since our rental car is a manual, this means I have to shift with the left hand. This is a little difficult at first, but easy to get the hang of. I only turned into the wrong lane once the whole day.
Oh and there are no traffic lights, on this side of Ireland at least. 99% of all intersections are roundabouts. This is especially hectic when highways intersect.
We made it to the Cliffs of Moher early afternoon and enjoyed the sights. It’s one of Ireland’s most visited attractions and was very cool to see up close. It is nominated for the new 7 wonders of nature, feel free to vote for it at the Cliffs of Moher website.
Tomorrow the plan is to bike ride around the Dingle Peninsula. We have free wifi here so you can look forward to another post soon.
