Wednesday remembering

This is a regular post featuring an old picture of mine, usually from former travels, with a short description of the story behind the photo.
In February 2009 I went with two friend to Dublin for a few days holiday. We'd had a long, dark winter with regular snow but the weather in Dublin was beautiful. We were able to walk around comfortably without coats and there was bright sunshine. We all wanted to see the sea. On our second day there we took the train to Dun Laoghaire (after getting all confused over the pronunciation, and amusing the ticket seller). Unfortunately this day was not as warm or as bright but as we'd come all the way out to the sea front we were determined to paddle. Although it was too cold to take our coats off, we all pulled off our shoes and stripped off our socks to put our feet in the Irish Sea. It was cold!
I love this image of my best friend Rachel leaping across the boulders in her thick wool coat and bare feet, we definitely like to have an adventure.


  1. Very brave ... I know from experience the Irish Sea is freezing ... Bee x

  2. aww this is such a fun moment in time to reminisce and look back at. I have traveled quite a bit and am really inspired by this post. Cheers to many more adventures!

    1. Thank you so much,
      I think that looking forward to and and looking back on travel memories can be almost as good as being away!
