This picture is really nice! it has told me a fairy tale! I can not see such a nice view in China.

Greetings from China, Jason Chan

I am very happy that you have a wonderful imagination, Jason, and that you like this photo of Ireland.

I have been in China 3 times, and I just love your amazing landscapes and the simple beauty of 'peasant' housing in so many places.

Kind regards from Australia.

That is too sad. Celebrate.

Dear David and Tom,

It seems we all love Ireland, with its history of sadness and conflict, its stories of faith and courage, its landscapes and its people, its humour and its laughter, its eccentricities and its hospitality, its Carling or Guinness and its seafood chowders!

Thanks for your visits, thoughts and link.

Good photo of old Irish history. I made some bicycle tours on Ireland in the 70's and loved the country. Greetings from Sweden, Mats.

Greetings Elmunt and Mats,

Thanks for the feedback on this photo of a particularly significant building. Like you Mats, I love Ireland, it is not hard to do, is it?

In Friendship,

Ian

Hello Ian. No Ireland is not hard to do. But if you buy an old bicycle without gears, and very bad interchange, you find that the road along the west coast goes up and down all the time, and then it is hard. Cheers, Mats.

Ian Stehbens on October 24, 2011

WE are often humbled by our choices, Mats, but I am sure that when the wind and rain were driving in your face as you pedalled uphill you were energized by the thought that over the hill there would be an Irish B&B or pub that would soon have you warm again and filled with perfect Irish chowder!

A rolling stone gathers no moss they say, but if you have been cycling in the rain along the west coast you probably needed some Irish Moss, as well as Chowder!

Cheers mate,

Ian

Thank you Ian. Yes a beer was good after a windy and rainy day. One of the strongest memories was to be invited to an old lady, collecting sea weed at the shores below Cliffs of Moher, and get a cup of tea in her dirty cups and having a chat. Using a bicycle you get contacts with people. Cheers, Mats.

Ian Stehbens on December 6, 2011

Now I am wishing, Mats, that I had investigated this historic cottage, for there just may have been a precious old lady with dirty cups who would have shared her tea with me.

You are right - close encounters are the treasures of travel.

Ian
