These past few days went by so quickly. We have just spent a week in a lovely place in the beautiful countryside of Co. Kerry in Ireland. What a time filled with pleasant surprises. What a tremendous blessing this vacation has been so far!
If you look at a map you will find this county in the southwest of Ireland. It’s famous for its Ring Of Kerry, for towns like Dingle, Killarney, and Kenmare. Many adviced us to visit these towns and the Ring Of Kerry — all in South Kerry, by the way — but we headed north most of the time. We had absolutely no desire to go further south than Tralee because we have found so many breathtaking areas closeby in North Kerry. (Pictures to come shortly!)
The south might attract tourists but not visitors like us. We prefer places that are not crowded by people, the peaceful, quiet spots of unspoiled nature, the unique songs of the seagulls, and beaches without blue flags — most of the times. Of course we visited some towns and did some shopping, too. But overall we just love to stay in the countryside and visit the lonely spots of Ireland.
Does time (really) go faster when we are on vacation?
