To say today has been hectic is a complete understatement. With just a few hours to go before our Wild Atlantic Way adventure, we’re bouncing around like energy balls.
I made my way down to Kerry last night from Heuston station, and arriving at 9pm I wasn’t particularly in the mood to work at planning more of the trip. But today we went hell for leather.
Organising everything we had in stock for the meals we were going to eat as we meandered up the coast, I made an inventory and scanned through our cookbooks (looks like we’ll be eating like The Happy Pear for two weeks). From curries, chilli and plenty of Indian dahl, we’re using a crazy amount of canned tomatoes and beans; I also made a giant pot of chutney from the apples in our garden and two large jars of organic cucumber pickle. It almost feels like we’re preparing for the apocalypse.
The majority of the places we’re staying in have access to kitchens and we’re going to make the most of them.
So here’s the deal! Updates on the blog won’t be as plentiful as updates on social media for the next two weeks. Why? Well, we also need to have time to enjoy the holiday too and while of course, we love the blog, sometimes you need to tune out a bit. We’re going to attempt to create a podcast too of our trip!
No, we haven’t packed the car, no we haven’t even packed our suitcase, but we’re still excited as we could ever be.
Tomorrow we’re hoping to set off at about 11am, winding our way down the Wild Atlantic Way to our starting point in Mizen Head in Cork.
