Wanderlust Wednesday: Sylt Island, Germany or Random Place in Ireland?


I know I’ve been MIA for a while. I’ve just been enjoying life with my family, doing things like frosting and eating sugar cookies right before bed. I mean really, how could you not with happy faces like these?!

But I’m back, and seeing how today is Wednesday, let’s get on to wanderlusting with a new stunning picture I’ve pinned to my Pinterest travel board, shall we?

The caption under the picture that I pinned reads “There is a place in Ireland where every two years on June 10-18 the stars line up with this bridge. It’s called heavens trail.”

However, when clicking through, you will come to a page with this caption instead: “Milky Way – Germany on Sylt Island in the North Sea in November, 2010, by a talented photographer called Thomas Zimmer.”

However, when clicking through the link on that page to try and find the original, you once again find the Ireland reference. Repeatedly.

Now, due to the Germany caption actually having photographer info, I’m more apt to believe it, but who knows? Do you? If you do, then share where this is in the comments please please please!

UPDATE: Thomas Zimmer in Germany it is! Here is a post with more info about the photo (go read it – it’s really interesting!). If you’d like to see more of Zimmer’s photography, you can find it here.


Wanderlust Wednesday: The Emerald Isle


Back in my single college days, my sister and I decided that one day we would backpack through Ireland together. But then life happened and backpacking didn’t happen and now we have families and responsibilities and all that grown up stuff to worry about.

But I still dream of doing it.

I may have even pinned an image or two {or three or six…} of Ireland on my travel board.

So today I just want to share a few of the beautiful sights I’d love to see if ever I got the chance to visit that beautiful country.

The Dark Hedges, Antrim, Ireland Where Beech trees have grown over the road to create this stunning and ethereal sight.

The bright streets of County Cork, Ireland, where apparently the food is amazing and not to be missed.

I want to visit some of the castles, like this one in Killarny, Ireland.

Howth Village in Dublin, Ireland. Apparently I have a thing for the brightly colored houses. Color makes me happy. :)

“The Round Road” in Ireland. I don’t know where this one is yet, but I’d sure like to find out! It looks like something from Alice in Wonderland, doesn’t it?

Oh Ireland, one day we shall meet face to face!
