Photos from my adventure backpacking Europe- this set is from the beautiful town and park outside of Killarney. Hiking it was the highlight of Ireland. We loved this entire country and both of us agreed that it would be lovely to really spend time here. We stayed at a really beautiful hostel right by the train station. Dark hardwood everything and a really lovely receptionist. She was so nice and answered a lot of questions for us. She actually got started working there because she was on a backpacking trip during “gap” year and just ended up staying! Though we only stayed in Killarney for a few days, I can definitely see why she ended up remaining. The people are friendly, the food is good, and the countryside is wonderful. Especially for someone of my interests in fiber arts, it’s a beautiful place.
