I have a riddle for you: What do you get when you combine an east-coaster-travel-blogger with her east-coaster-photographer-best-friend? THE BEST BLOG POST YOU’VE EVER READ COVERING THE BEST WEEKEND GETAWAY I’VE EVER HAD, THAT’S WHAT!!!!
I swear, the Dingle Peninsula is Ireland’s best. kept. secret.
I mean it’s not exactly a secret, but it gets a lot less publicity for travelers than say, Dublin or Galway.
Substantially less foot traffic, the most scenic views, so many quaint little towns, and THE NICEST PEOPLE TO EVER EXIST are all things we found while in the Dingle Peninsula back in May.
But the ABSOLUTE GEM of the Dingle Peninsula is hands down the scenic drive that is the Slea Head Drive.
IS THIS REAL, ACTUAL LIFE???
I asked myself this on the night of May 4th, as we were checking our bags for the 1,000th time to make sure we didn’t forget anything.
And again the next day as we sat in our home airport, drinking our pre-flight ritual North Carolina craft beers, waiting to go to Boston.
And AGAIN when we finally made it to Boston, through the one horrific northeastern rain storm and turbulence coupled with a landing that made you question your life choices up until that exact moment in time.
And AGAIN when waiting in Boston Logan to board our flight to Europe.
