I just returned from Ireland where I presented at the international MITE conference as well as delivered a workshop with a fellow Apple ADE. Ireland is a spectacularly beautiful country, even though the weather in January is mostly cold and rainy. I rented a car for my five days there (driving on the left is a little strange) which allowed me to explore quite a bit of the country when I wasn’t at the conference in Galway. I started out in Dublin and then made my way to the Wicklow Mountains National Park. I wound my way through the mountains, dodging sheep and trying not to damage the rental car on the impossibly narrow roads. I eventually crossed the country and ended up at the Cliffs of Moher, which were absolutely amazing. It was night when I started the final two hours up to Galway, and I found myself driving on pitch black roads through the snow. It was a little dicey to say the least. I ended up in Galway and for the next several days, it was my home base for exploring the surrounding region. The fjord up in Leenaun and Connemara National Park were both superb. I took a lot of photos that I will post on my Instagram over the coming days, but the one with this post is of the sun setting behind the Cliffs of Moher, which is a rarity considering the weather in January. I was fortunate to capture it, even though the winds were 50 mph and the temperature was 35 degrees!
