Friday Lens Affair #34


Glendalough, Ireland

Today I’m hosting a breath-taking photograph taken in Glendalough by Tomasz Lisowski from Adventurous Travels.

Tomek is a man with a passion for off the beaten path destinations. He lives in Dublin but gets out as often as possible.

Follow him on Twitter and Facebook. His stories will charm you, they did charm me :) To see more pictures from Glendalough please click here.

I have chosen this amazing photo because I love nature. I love getting out of the city to do some outdoors activities!

I must admit that if you would ask me a couple of years ago I would say I’m a big city Girl! And I was but I think that with age I’m changing.

More and more I enjoy medium-sized cities, nature, being outside! And becoming even bigger countryside Girl, which I always was deep down in my heart. Haha

Yet again I let myself to get away from the main story! I’m really a total chatterbox as you can see!

Picture Story: Glendalough, Ireland

This picture was taken in Glendalough, near medieval ruins of the monastic city (more than the 1000 year old). Around 50 kilometers from the Irish capital – Dublin.

So if you already checked out all the things to do in Dublin, this destination os for you.

I went there to spend a lovely summer weekend as well as to escape the city crowds. I was really lucky about the weather. It was super sunny and not even a single drop of rain!

The lakes in Glendalough Valley are beautiful. They look outstanding from the ground level but I decided to climb the trail that leads to the top of the hill above.

After 40 minutes, my effort was rewarded with this spectacular view. I really recommend everyone to see this magnificent place when you visit Dublin. It’s easily accessible and it will take you to a different, wonderful world.

    Ireland is beautiful and what’s most important, there are many great places like that one in the photo very close to the Irish capital, Dublin. Sometimes it’s just a matter of 20 minutes on the public bus or train and you can admire mountains/cliffs/sea. The place in the photo is in Wicklow National Park, around 1.5 hour drive from Dublin. There are many trails there, and, I will surprise you, they are very easy! It takes no more than around 1.5 hours of hiking to get to the place where I took this photo from :) For me it was easy peasy ;)
