Being home for the Easter holidays was an absolute treat!
The people I run about with at uni the most consists of three of us from NI and one rogue Englishman we somehow managed to acquire hahaha!
Forcing a group selfie
LOOK AT THAT SEA
He FINALLY came to visit our little corner of the world which meant showing him all the sights, including visiting my favourite place in the world; what a pity!
My personal highlight was the GLORIOUS day we had up at the North Coast. If you’re ever in NI, 100% it is THE place to visit. With stunning backdrops and adorable coffee shops it is the perfect relaxing day.
We hit up the Giants Causeway first, just as the sun was starting to come out! Our Englishman is a lover of all things nature and so he was fascinated by the rock formations.
The Causeway is a fabulous place regardless of the weather. We saw it on a relatively calm day with blue sky and sea. It can however be equally as impressive on a stormy day with the waves making incredible crashing sounds over the rocks (just be careful!)
(No the co-ordination was not planned, but #goals I guess?)
After this we grabbed some lunch to prepare us for the trek to the Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge! 100% be sure and bring your walking shoes for this one as it’s about a mile from the car park to the bridge.
Again the fabulous weather made our wee country look even more spectacular than it already is! When we were on the island, we took a wander down to the fishery the reason the bridge was put up in the first place. Doing this also meant that when we came back up, the crowds had cleared and we got to relax and take some photos on the bridge as we had it to ourselves!
Finally, with the weather being so lovely, we took a little walk on the beach before going out to hear the Irishman’s gig with his comedy band (an absolulte giggle of a night!)
