Walking and Talking Tours in Antrim and Donegal this Summer
Rainbows in Cushendun – puffins and seals on Rathlin Island.
The Causeway Coast and the glories of Glenveagh National Park were some of the highlights of this year’s walking tours.
Mushrooms were picked in Ards Forest Park with our mushroom experts Chris and Evi. Much to my shame I left them behind me (sorry Chris!!) – I put my forgetfulness down to the wonderful distractions (attractions!!) on our walk – Medal Hill, Ague Well and mass rock.
Majestic Mount Errigal was conquered again – well worth the effort to experience the wonderful views from the top – the dark, threatening clouds and sunspots creating a wonderful dramatic backdrop.
In July we had our most international group – there were 11 in the group and 6 different nationalities – French, Catalan, German, English, Austrian and American – and of course Irish!!
It was such a fun group and we learned a lot about each other’s countries and I think Donegal found a place in their hearts. A common denominator in all the groups was the laughter and fun – needs no translator or interpreter.
We were so well looked after in all our accommodations – Villa Farmhouse in Cushendun, Ardeen house in wonderful Ramelton! and marvellous food and atmosphere in the Bridge Bar!
Thanks to Ralf and my other great walker/photographers for some of the images.
