In the Big Smoke (London), existing on the necessities performed in the ” today” so that i may enjoy the “tomorrows”. I find my sense of creative-self choked by the urban cloud. Though lovely to be with my dearest and oldest friend enjoying walks along the Thames, dinners in the garden and long talks over glasses of wine foretelling of our future retirement estate in the highlands where gaudy jewelry with matching wellies, epic Pimms-soaked sunday brunches and daily adventures of eccentricities will rule our shared Georgian manor house…
I long for green rolling countryside, blue skies filled with sea winds, and my rural disposition.
…which reminded me of a lovely weekend this past april spent driving along the picturesque Antrim coast of Northern Ireland. A land of stark contrasts; who’s beauty found in natural wonders and ancient remnants of lore far supersedes the ugly recent past of troubled times.
Enjoy these pictures below of that fabulous weekend exploration and promise to blog more soon, next month ICELAND!! Until then go visit The Rucksack Foodie Facebook Page for more frequent travel updates, tastes and sights!
Larne to Ballycastle, along the coastline offers some of the most picturesque and inspiring views to be found on this poetic island.
