🍦Sigamos! Les conté de este pueblito... acá van más datos:
Se llama Fintown (llamada así por una mujer mitológica - Fionnghel - que se ahogo en el lago luego de intentar salvar a su hermano) en Donegal, Irlanda. 🇮🇪
Tiene una población aproximada de 100/200 habitantes en su centro urbano y 500 en la zona rural. Se habla un 59% en irish. Se ubica junto al Lago Finn y podemos encontrar entre sus cerros y montañas un montón de ovejas, ganado 🐄🐑 , granjas y pequeños Lagos cristalinos escondidos en los picos.

Hija mayor del matrimonio que nos brindó un hogar. 💫Somos: Lauren, yo y los perritos de la familia 🐕 en un paseo típico de nuestro descanso de fin de semana🥰 #workaway#traveler#viajar#viajera#viajes#Irlanda#ireland#donegal#traveling#travelblogger#travelgram#viajarbarato#comuviajera#viajerosafull
It's rare you'd see me posting anything political but I'll say this: "Ireland is at a turning point and while we can't change the path traversed, nor can we predict the bumps ahead. However, we can choose the destination.".
. @sinn_fein deserves its time in government. Look not at their words but instead at the actions that presently define them.
Here’s a picture I took at some Irish pub when I was on tour this summer of a collage of the greatest fightsman of all time ever - Conor McGregor. I have no doubt Conor will handily win his fight tonight and continue his undefeated streak, retaining his status as World Champion. #ufc246#conormcgregor#champion#undefeated#mma#ufc#ireland
| Wild Sourdough |
A couple of weeks into our stay in Ireland, I got a bug to start fermenting while we were on the road. Beet Kvass (which I still owe you a recipe for!), sauerkraut, and other simple treats. And it occurred to me: why not sourdough? Culturing sourdough feels like capturing the essence of place. If I did it right, I could dehydrate my culture and even bring it home.
So I went for it.
In our little cottage on the Dingle Peninsula of Ireland, I stirred together flour and water. I placed it in an upcycled honey jar, then set it out in the seaside air to culture.
The next day I stirred, added a bit more flour and water, and set it out again, this time in a gentle rain. And the next night. And the next.
I repeated the process as we moved northward to the peat fields of Connemara National Park, the history steeped hedgerows and hills of County Sligo, our favorite little thatched cottage at the northernmost tip of the island. In rain and mist, sun and wind, my sourdough came to life. Laced with peat smoke and the yeasts of 200 year old cottages, sea-misted breezes and driving Irish rains, it absorbed it all.
Before our trip was through, it was lively enough to bake three loaves of bread during our final two weeks, and I was delighted. The flavor was everything I had hoped for: rich, tangy, and full of the best sort of memories. It was a living piece of this magical place, that was coming home with me to stay.
Three days before our flight home, I baked one last loaf of bread, then smoothed the rest of my starter onto a piece of parchment paper, and set it by the peat stove to dry. By morning it was crisp and I snapped it into pieces, and tucked it into the same old honey jar to bring home. I set another stash in a plastic bag, labeled both as "dehydrated sourdough starter" then placed them in separate suitcases, just in case one didn't make it home.
And now, back home, each day I stir in flour and water. I can't help but picture each place where I set that jar—nestled in verdant moss, perched on rocks or wood or peat. With every loaf I bake, I remember.
It's a little bit of magic, really. And truly the finest of souvenirs.
No matter how you choose to travel, the Gap of Dunloe is one of the must see spots in County Kerry!
Winding between the Purple Mountains on the east side and MacGillycuddy's Reeks on the west, the Gap is slightly over 10 km of some of the most spectacular mountain scenery in the country.
If you're up for it, it makes for a spectacular hike/bike/run between Kate Kearney's Cottage and Lord Brandon's Cottage where you can also take a boat through the Upper Lake and Lough Leane back to Killarney town. Enjoy! 🇮🇪

Love this composite of the Rock of Cashel by @jamesatruett 🏰🙌 One of Ireland's most revered historic sites, Rock of Cashel, sits on a limestone peak in County Tipperary with views for miles around. Dating from the 11th Century, it was the traditional seat of the Kings of Munster prior to the Norman invasion.
In this composite image, the site is framed by one of the Gothic arches found inside the ruins.
