Cliffs of Moher

One of my favorite things I did in Ireland. Yes it is iconic and beautiful…whatever…. The reason this was so wonderful for me was that I made friends. I had been driving all day on psycho roads, after an early morning where I didn’t wash my hair or put on makeup, I felt miserable, exhausted and wasn’t sure if I should even bother stopping at the cliffs as I still had a ways to drive. Some people I met on a hike in Killarney told me that it wasn’t worth it to pay the money to do the all of the cliffs, but as tired as I was I thought: whatever just pay the dang money and go. So I did. At one point I stopped and asked someone I heard speaking English to take my picture. We started talking and I told him I went to Brigham Young University. He asked if I was LDS. A certain clue that he was as well if he didn’t use the term Mormon. Turns out he was LDS and we started talking and hiking together. He was there with a group of people. One was a wonderful girl from Germany (originally from Poland) name Natalia. After telling her I was going to hang my feel over the edge of the cliffs she joined me and a bond was formed. I had I wonderful time getting to know these five individuals from all over the world as we hiked the next few hours. I love how travel can be a gateway to instant friends and how the weirdest situations can create bonds and commonalities. I love how the church is truly everywhere and that on a gross yucky day I had a beautiful evening and felt the Lord blessing my journey. Here are some photos. During the sunset, the cliffs shone gold and it was magnificent. Love you guys.

Friends!

Friends!

Sitting on the edge- notice though I am leaning back- still a bit scared of heights but I feel that if I can put my feet over a 700 ft drop then I have pretty much conquered this fear or am at least improving.

Yes I put my feet over the ledge!

Yes I put my feet over the ledge!

This is how far back I sat down before butt scooting to the edge. I may be crazy but I am not suicidal.
