Bantry, summer 2009

Last week was pretty intense for me with early hours at work and 2 photoshoots per day on the weekend. But I survived it, I just need to sort out all the photos that I took. Meanwhile I wanted to post something cheerful, like photos from the trip to Bantry that we had in summer of 2009. I’ve posted some of them already, and I still have few left. That was an unbelievable summer, though I didn’t know it back then, it was my first summer in Ireland. It was warm, and we had like 2 months (!) of sunny … Continue reading

Bantry, 2009

On a cold day like today I want to think about summer, and summer of 2009 was one the best so far. It was sunny and warm, we travelled a lot and explored Ireland. I still have some unpublished photos from that year, so I will get back to it for sure again. Bantry (Beanntraí) is a coastal town about an hour and a half away from Cork. It’s a small town, but it could be a great starting point for exploring the south coast and Beara peninsula. There is a small island just near the Bantry bay called Whiddy … Continue reading

Because of the tourists it’s hard to see the real Irish life there, not in the city center anyway. But if you go a bit to the suburbs you can find beautiful small houses painted in bright colors with back yards and gardens, covered in green plants. I … Continue reading

We will leave Amsterdam in 2 days after and will take a train in Köln. … Continue reading

First Cork photos, 2009

Yesterday I had a party with the people who just came to Cork from Russia, and it made me recall my first time in Ireland, so I found first pictures I took in Cork. Everything was so interesting and uncommon! People were unusual – smiling, saying hi when you pass by on the streets. Food was interesting and new – after discovering “Burger king” I didn’t stop and found some very nice small cafes with Irish food, that I like now. The way they build houses here was or really unusual with the entrance on the second floor with a … Continue reading
