Hi! I’m Sara and I blog at SARA SEES, where I share adventures from my travels and general wanderings! I’m currently living in Dublin, Ireland where I’ve had some absolutely amazing experiences! You can follow me on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and Google+!
Moving from Louisiana to Ireland has been a bit of an adjustment, to say the least. But for the most part, all the adjustments have been great ones! For example, I’m a lot more active here. Not only is it because I don’t have a car, but because you can walk outside without profusely sweating. That’s new for me! (Sorry to diss Louisiana, but it’s too hot to function there most of the time!)
So, I’m trying to take advantage of this whole non-humid weather thing as much as I can! Throw in Ireland’s astounding natural landscape and there’s one obvious answer…HIKING! Hiking is big here, so there are many options of hiking trails/paths that range from a simple 3-mile hikes to 3 week hikes and everything in between!
One Tuesday when I didn’t have to work, my friend and I decided to go hiking from Glenmalure to Glendalough, which was about 7 miles. We packed a lunch, took a n hour train from Dublin and spent the whole day out in the mountains. As much as I love Dublin, it was so nice to get out of the city and get some fresh air. I came back relaxed with a clear mind, a tan, and sore legs! But the scenery was absolutely astounding, especially the end of the hike which ended at the monastic ruins of Glendalough!
