Today I’m hosting a great picture from Aran Island in Ireland taken by a superb girl, Agata Mleczko from NullnFull Blog. You can admire more of her great shots on Flickr.
Agata says: ‘My blog is focused on traveling understood as a deep human activity of knowing myself and the world.A very complex stuff! And pleasant too! Although I take traveling quite seriously I have fun at the same time. I enjoy every minute of every travel. And I am grateful for each and every one of them.’
I must admit that I totally agree with Agata on this one! It is highly important to enjoy every single minute. Not only of travel but life in general. And I think it is important to be grateful, because we really do not realize how lucky we are. To be healthy, not hungry. Living in countries of freedom and prosperity. Having full families and big circles of friends. In our busy world we often forget to be grateful. We must snap out of this crazy bad dream and start noticing that life is not that bad around us. And if it is there is never too late to change it!
Photo Story: Aran Island, Ireland
The story behind is a bit long and it took me 6 blog posts to tell it in details ;-)
Broadly speaking I went to the Aran Island because I read a book, travel journal written by Nicolas Bouvier. He went there 30 years ago and told the story about the island after that.
This picture was taken during one day bike trip from Kilronan to Kilmurvy. This was a sunny and windy day. Very windy, to be precise. I had a great time, despite the effort made.
The island is a paradise like place, with white beaches, green pastures and stone walls everywhere.
