I’m not Dead, I just went to Ireland

Drinking with the cows on the farm I was living on was probably the highlight of my time in Ireland.

Holy Mother of Bod it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything. Sure, part of it is laziness but I have a pretty good excuse: I was in Ireland visiting a family friend for a while. And I gotta say, I highly recommend visiting Ireland if the opportunity ever arises. The food and beer alone is worth going there (I gained seven pounds in two weeks cause I drank every meal).

Anyway, this isn’t a conventional blog post. Do not expect Dad Blog to turn into some sort of travel blog, we don’t have the money nor opportunity to really make it into one. This will probably be the only travel post. And as far as this post goes, it’s really just going to be a photo dump of some shots I took with my phone. Nothing special really.

Well, without further ado, enjoy some photos I took of my ancestors’ homeland.

On the plane I found out there’s a place in Arkansas called Arkadelphia. I kinda want to go there but Arkansas is a bit of a shithole.
We missed our flight and so we had to stay an extra day in Atlanta. I drank a ton of beer and found this $1,000 toaster.
When you put extra ranch on chicken bacon ranch pizza.
Really old Aqueduct in Wexford in Southeast Ireland.
Ruins of a Knights Templar building.
Beach on the Ring of Kerry. I listened to Broke by Modest Mouse here and nearly had an existential crisis.
Mansion on the Ring of Kerry.
I did some falconry and if I weren’t a sheriff I’d probably be a falconer.
Wouldn’t be a trip to Ireland without visiting the Cliffs of Moher.
The Giant’s Causeway in Northern Ireland. Doesn’t even look like it’s from planet Earth.
Looks like a giant tentacle. Had another existential crisis here.
The Dark Hedges, as seen on Game of Thrones. The trees were planted hundreds of years ago.
Ronald was the best food in Ireland hands down.
Crazy bridge in The Gobbins.
Beautiful clock tower in Belfast. Belfast was honestly better than Dublin in my opinion.
Got shitaced here, danced with some Irish dudes and got a big smooch on the cheek from them. It was goat fire.
Entrance to Newgrange, a pagan monument older than the Pyramids and Stonehenge.
Newgrange is the most amazing thing I’ve ever seen. Please read up about it.
Still hard to believe humans can fly.

Well, if you got this far, thanks for reading / viewing. I’m going to try to post more in the future. Until then, Bod Speed.
