Friendly Animals, Sprawling Byways + Medieval Gems: Teri's Roadtrip Adventure on the Emerald Isle

I took to Ireland to bring in 2017 with one of my best friends. We opted to see the countryside by car, driving on the left side + everything! The country sides, coastal byways + friendly animals were enchanting. We hit Giants Causeway at sunset + the Cliffs of Moher at sunrise. Animals we found actually appear to be smiling in these photos. The medieva[...]

We love that this pai[...]
