The south west of the island contains the rugged and jagged green landscapes that you picture when you think of Ireland. The Ring of Kerry is ~180 kilometers around with beautiful seascapes and green pastures the entire way. The furhter North Dingle Peninsula is even more rugged. The visit to the western part of Ireland was a great way to end the trip. With less people around and less travelling to do, we enjoyed our stay a great deal.

...And now... we are in Frankfurt once again... tomorrow we begin the long journey home! The next week will involve a stay in Ohio then a road trip, across the land of the free, to Idaho. What a way to end a trip on the other side of the globe, a reintroduction to my homeland, nothing quite like it in the world.
