Traveling to the southwest of the Republic of Ireland brings all kinds of myths and stories and music to my mind. But the most important lesson for me is to synchronize with the sound of the waves.
The #WildAtlanticWay is a mixture of roads that lead from the South to the North. It is not the road though that dazzles me. It is the small paths entering this road; the blue and rocky scenery of the land entering the sea; the colorful small towns that make me feel all kinds of joy; the also colorful people who sing and dance every chance they get...
...so I really feel that this journey may be all about joy.
Driving along one of the longest coastal route in the world you need to go slow and take in every corner of it. Wherever you turn your head you will see colors. Only colors. I am lost in the colors... I don't see the lines any more I only see the colors. And when I leave the country side and the sea and enter these small diamond towns and villages I see more colors.
I met all of my dreams on my #RoadTrip to the Wild Atlantic Way. And I spoke to the ocean from the End of the World.
Light is energy that moves in tiny particles and makes waves. Every kind of light moves at a certain wavelength. Each wavelength is perceived by our eyes as a different color. As I am taking photos of a beautiful meadow I feel that I can see the light waves dancing around me.
#Exercise: I sit on the soft soil surrounded by small colorful flowers and I breath deep. I imagine the light waves entering my every cell. My cells fill with all the colors of the rainbow and they smile. They feel an intense joy and they return to being perfect circles as hey should be.
#Ireland is the land of the ancient Celts. The Celtic wise men were the Druids. A #Druid is the one that comes from the oak tree.They acted as priests, teachers, and judges. They knew the secrets of nature and lived respecting the forces of nature and learning from it. They were healers and clairvoyant and they could communicate with plants and animals. Their name derives from Greek word Drys (Greek: ΔΡΥΣ) which means the Oak Tree.
As I pass through the southern mountains I found the Spirits of the ancient Druids waiting for the travelers. Waiting to show them the mysteries if they are open to see.
#Fact: The Wild Atlantic Way is 2600km in length (1600miles)
#Ireland is also the country of joy. Wherever I stand I see people ready to dance and sing. And in a more materialistic aspect (which is fine by me, after all I threw myself in it) here I got the chance to taste the most amazing fresh goat and sheep milk, to eat the eggs how they 're supposed to be and to sink in the greatest steak of all times. Everything brings me joy in Ireland. From the people to the food to the soil to the ocean... even the rough coastal rocks that sparkle my imagination.
