During the summer this year, I was back again for a road trip through The Republic of Ireland. It was a journey I had planned on doing for some time with the aim of seeing parts of Ireland that were new to me. We picked up a van in London and drove to Pembroke in Wales, boarded a ferry and continued our journey from Rosslare along the southern Irish coast for a week. We continued our journey through Wexford, Waterford, Cork, the Ring of Kerry, Ring of Beara and finally Galway. One of the highlights was visiting World Heritage Listed Skellig Michael, an island that was once occupied as a Christian Monastery.
Although it was summer, we had lots of rain and wind. I relished braving the elements that mother nature put us through but there were moments when the unrelenting rain drove us to despair. But it was part of the adventure and it wouldn't have been an Irish holiday without some rain. But that's what attributes to the beautiful, green landscapes of Ireland.
These photos remind of my trip to Ireland last year for this food styling and photography workshop hosted by Lens & Larder. I met a lot of inspiring people, one of them being the talented Jette Virdi. She recently launched her new blog and I was honoured to be the first to guest post with this recipe.
