Warning: The End Of The World Is Near!

See, I told you this was going to get adventurous.

This morning we woke up bright and early to take a scenic drive down the western coast of Ireland, which also happens to be the most western part of all of Europe.

This part of Ireland is essentially one giant slab of limestone.

What do you do when you have an entire island of limestone? I’ll tell you what… you build rock walls for as far as the eye can see.

And sculptures

And tombs. Specifically the Portal Tomb.

Which was quite appropriate considering we were about to embark on a couple of near-death experiences.

First of all the roads here are about as wide as the bike lanes in California and lined on each side with limestone walls and shrubbery. Somehow you are expected to fit two cars on them careening directly at each other at 100 km/h. I’m still picking the thistles out of my hair as we speak. Shoulda rolled the window up.

The second near-death experience and the ultimate destination of the drive were the Cliffs of Moher, which as you can see from the photos is quite literally the end of the world. The photos are amazing, but if you get the chance, you really ought to check them out for yourself. Looking down a 700 foot rock wall at certain death while the wind blows at your back will take your breath away.

Now this is the part where I must issue a warning to all the family and loved ones reading this blog. What you are about to see may make the little hairs on the back of your neck stand on end. Jay and I did what we normally do, and went against our better judgment and ignored all warnings and caution signs.

All for the sake of a few photos for YOU, our loyal readers! So if you don’t want to see us nearly die… stop reading now.

OK, for those of you that are still reading… on with the show…
