living life on the edge

Imagine your feet dangling 390 feet above sea level, off a cliff. If you happen to inch a little too close to the edge (or you know, if some crazy person happens to come along and shove you), the only things there to break your fall are jagged rocks, and the dark abyss of the Atlantic Ocean. But please, don’t let that deter you from sitting on the cliffs! I’m just putting it all out there for you! It’s an adrenaline rush for sure. Granted, I’ve never done anything else that would warrant an adrenaline rush, like bungee jumping or sky-diving, but I’m working up to that. Baby steps! So if you too are looking for that first step, then these cliffs might be for you!

When we went, we lucked out and got a nice warm day. We didn’t even need our coats – and mind you, it was March, so it should have been freezing, especially by the water (not that I’m complaining). I guess it was to make up for the freak snowstorm we were going to get stuck in in Belfast (but more on that later).

I can’t really describe the Cliffs of Moher for you. Sure, it was “breathtaking”, and “beautiful”, or maybe even “magical”. But I’ll just leave you with some pictures (which won’t even do it justice – you just have to physically pay a visit)

Fun fact – the Cliffs were featured in Harry Potter & the Half Blood Prince. I’m not a Harry Potter fan but if you are, now you can look out for it when you watch the movie again!
