Back to the Past – IV

And for the fourth edition of the Back to the Past series, I decided to dedicate this article to Ireland related articles only.

Family in Cork

Life changes so fast that we barely can keep track of what happened in a not so distant past. Four years ago I decided to treat my brother, his wife and their children (my beloved nephew and niece) with a weekend in Ireland to visit me. We were way far from imagining that four years later they would be also living here in Cork, and that the kids would be fluent in English (I’m sure soon they’ll start correcting my writing too!).



By now this isn’t a surprise, I just don’t plan anything before traveling, even if it is a close town 1 hour away from Cork…, Kinsale was full of surprises, mostly about its history. The town is widely known for the food and restaurants, and also as the starting point of the Wild Atlantic Way, but the history it keeps is quite interesting, mostly for an Iberian like myself. This was my first time, out of many, in Kinsale.

Cliffs of Moher

One of the candidates of the 7 Wonders of Nature, and also one of the most visited sites in the Republic of Ireland. That was my first time there, and again, with a massive luck with the weather, rainy the whole way to get there, and then the skies opened for us 🙂 I’ve been there a few other times, but never had such a nice weather like that day.

If you enjoy these flashbacks, feel free to share these articles. Next month I’ll have another one prepare for you 🙂 Thanks for reading!
