“I” is for Ireland. We spent most of our time on the east side but spent a week in Cahersiveen on the SW coast. We did a little road trip over to Valentia island which was a treasure of softened austerity. We visited a candle maker to make candles, hiked to a overlook to see the cliffs and waves, visited a light house and felt the spray and fury of the Atlantic, and squeezed down narrow little roads just enjoyed the natural beauty of Ireland.
#Knowledge is power! I spent the better part of a week in Killarney, Ireland exploring and learning my craft of #travelblogging and #travelwriting. I learned so much about #SEO, #socialmediamarketing, and so much more. I'm still reminiscing about it a year later. After finally digesting all the information and forming many partnerships and friendships in the industry, I'm ready to go to another conference this year. Leave a comment with any suggestions. * * btw, you can read about my experience at #tbexireland from the #linkinthebio.
I had a nice dose of entertainment finishing out the opening day of #tbexireland in #killarney. The relationships I formed from this event, both personally and professionally, will be long-lasting. We got to see the Irish Steps Show and some pretty interesting musical performances to close the night. Check out the #linkinthebio to get a recap of my experience at this awesome conference.
These are the Kilkee Cliffs where part of Star Wars was filmed! 🤩 Is there anywhere you've seen in a movie that you've wanted to visit? ✈
Yesterday I was a bit obsessed with the Kilkee Cliffs, I couldn't snap fast enough! When I sorted through all the shots though, my favorite picture was of this little emerald tide pool. Damon had pointed it out to me by my feet and it didn't seem interesting to me compared to the majesty of the cliffs but I took a quick picture anyway. I think he has a better eye than I do for nature photography actually, I don't know what to do with a camera if there's not a person in front of it. 😆 Today I'm reminded that the little creations can be just as beautiful and complex as the big ones. 💚
#FF: On Fridays I share some of my favorite Instagrammers—people I LOVE to follow and think you will, too. . Karilyn (@nobackhome) is a family travel writer who explores the world with her son, Cian. She lived in India for 10 years, which is where Cian was born. Making her family even more International, her husband (that guy photobombing 😂) is Irish. They are always seeking new experiences and Tex-Mex food! . Karilyn and I met in a family travel bloggers group online and IRL at last year’s TBEX conference in Ireland where we were two of the few family travel writers who brought our kids to the travel media conference. (Who will I in see at TBEX Finger Lakes next month?) . Scroll back through her feed for gorgeous photos of her trips with Cian to Borneo, Fiji, Singapore, Brazil and the Amazon River this summer. . . . . . . . . . . .
*Full video up on YouTube and Facebook.* Last October, Cris and I were in Ireland speaking at TBEX for our 18th presentation on social media marketing. After the convention and some press tours with Failte Ireland, we headed off on a 2-week road trip of the #wildatlanticway, which doubled as our 4th year wedding anniversary. Love you @viajesconcristina °
Finally had some time today to cut some more of our Ireland footage. Full video is up on Facebook and YouTube. This is from the last two days of our 15-day road trip, which ended up in Northern Ireland where Cristina wanted to explore some Game of Thrones film sites. Moar drone footage FTW. As always, exploring alongside @viajesconcristina °
