Once upon a time (2007), a sad, lonely girl (guess who?) was selected to go on a student ambassador trip to England, Wales, and Ireland. It was a grand adventure, and many friends were had and sights were seen, but the girl had yet to see any sights that truly took her breath away. The Tower of London was filled with evil, hateful ravens that kept trying to steal her breakfast, and Stonehenge, while quiet and well-respected, was crowded; and Wales was populated by attack sheep (though the girl still wonders if perhaps she was being tricked or a joke was being played...). One day, after a long bus ride, the girl and her companions arrived in the small, elegant little village of Sneem, Ireland. Nestled in rolling hills and mountains, surrounded by green on all sides, and inhabited by, not only the friendliest people, but also a small pack of the healthiest, loveliest, friendliest stray dogs, Sneem was like a village from a fairytale. Well, in the boarding house where they stayed, the girl entered her room, mocked the guy who was forced to carry her huge suitcase up the stairs (HA!) by the landlady, and turned to the window. Her breath caught in her throat. She rushed to the window, and gaped. It was the most beautiful sight she had ever seen, and would ever see. Ever since that day, the girl has been restless, with a deep desire to travel the world, and find the other beautiful places and hidden treasures of the world.
However, the girl is poor. Dead broke. With no job and a BA in English that is getting her f$ck all in employment and income. She is sad and lonely again, but by God does she have some beautiful photos. The End.
Okay, so, long little story there, but all true, and in honor of the most beautiful back garden view I have ever seen. Sneem, along with having a marvelous name, was a wonderful little town. You take three left turns, and you're right back where you started. Good food too, and friendly people, as seems to be the norm in Ireland. As for the photo it is completely untouched and unedited. I saw absolutely no good reason to mess with something so beautiful. So enjoy.
