Today I’m hosting a breath-taking photograph taken in Glendalough by Tomasz Lisowski from Adventurous Travels. Tomek is a man with 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 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. Ha ha ha
Yet again I let myself to get away from the main story! I’m really a total chatter box as you can see! Ha ha ha
Picture Story: Glendalough, Ireland
This picture was taken in Glendalough, near medieval ruins of the monastic city (more than 1000 year old). Around 50 kilometers from the Irish capital – Dublin. 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.
