"Donegal's Ghost Island of Inishsirrer"
Inishsirrer is now a deserted island, just under a mile off the north coast of Donegal along the Wild Atlantic Way. In the distance you can see "Bloody Foreland" on the mainland. This small settlement of "Innishsirrer" was once a thriving fishing community. Sadly now the island is completely uninhabited and all that remains is this little "Ghost Town" with abandoned cottages, shops, dry stone walls and a small harbour all echoing its once bustling past.
The main reason it was abandoned is because the young were hired out, married or went to Scotland to work & the remaining elderly who lived off the land, got too old for the hard life of fishing alone so they re-homed on mainland.

I really dont feel about how i look because we should always aporeciate the blessings given to us By GOD and without GOD we are nothing..
We paid forward a little travel karma and received 2 unexpected emails from complete strangers. They took my breath away. A great reminder that a little kindness goes a long way. #happythankyoumoreplease

Steps so steep, I wouldn't take them. That's gotta be a metaphor for something going on in my life! #mood

Bathing and feeding these retired elephants brought some much joy to a trip that was unforgettable 🐘 if you are visiting Thailand, please consider visiting an elephant sanctuary instead of an elephant ride that exploits and abuses these beautiful animals.
Today, I snuck away to explore Montauk with a few of my favorite smarties. @montaukbrewco is definitely worth a stop. If you’re in Montauk during the off-season- be sure to do a beer tasting! During the summer, stop by to pick up a growler or keg (the brewery is small and gets super busy, so it’s best to enjoy at home during high season).
The NYC neighborhood you never knew you needed to visit. ;) I'm showing you around my stomping grounds and highlighting my favorite things to do, see and eat in Astoria, Queens. If you love culture and food, you need to make Astoria your next stop. Click "read the blog" via the link in bio to find out why. (Photo via Unsplash)⠀

How do you deal with the winter blues? I'm trying to embrace the season more and appreciate the solitude, introspection and cozy vibes that come with the dark, cold days. Seasons come and seasons go, it won't be like this forever, so might as well enjoy it for what it is, right? Even so, my mood dips quite a bit between January and April. I exercise, eat + supplement for the season, and even started using a SAD light. What works for you?⠀
Jen and Ryan had one of the windiest weddings I can recall! But it made for the best moments and some pretty great images too. I feel like we spend so much time worrying about the weather when in reality it can be the building block of a great memory no matter which way it goes.
