Уникальные двери в Дублине. Побывала в Ирландии и даже не выложила ни одной фотографии. Как так!
Люди привыкают ко всему( и к хорошему, и к плохому) очень быстро. Помню времена, когда даже и мечтать не могла, что когда-то вообще смогу полететь заграницу, да даже просто до Сочи слетать не представлялось возможным)
Также помню, когда моя одноклассница показала фотку своего бойфренда, который слетал отдохнуть в Египет. До сих пор помню фэйс этого довольного чувака с пальмой и синем морем на бэкграунде. Как же у меня тогда все взбурлило от зависти) по-моему это был конец 90х начало 2000х годов
И на всю жизнь запомню, как 1ый раз в 2010 году собиралась в свою первую заграничную поездку в Испанию на целых 7 дней!) Я готовилась к этому, как к самому главному событию в своей жизни. Эта поездка перевернула в моем сознании все представление о мире. Я не могла поверить на сколько мир может быть другим 😁
Сейчас для меня слетать куда-то не сопровождается той бурей эмоций. Хотя возбуждение все равно присутствует, конечно. И каждая поездка приносит разные чувства. ⠀
После той 1-ой поездки у меня разыгрался аппетит и я облетала чуть ли не всю Европу, UK, полетала в Америку, Китай и что-то ещё было))
Любопытно, в каком году вы полетели заграницу первый раз?Был ли у вас культурный шок?

This picture is of one of Ireland's greatest ever trailblazers and a doctor who's research and work has saved the lives of millions of women across the world.⠀
James Barry was born in Cork in 1789 and seeing the conditions of the Irish people living in constant poverty and their lack of basic medical care, Barry enlisted in the British Army as a Medical Assistant to learn as much as possible to be able to help as many people as possible.⠀
At the time, joining the British Army was the only access to education which an Irish person was allowed to have unless they were protestant. As well as this, hundreds of thousands of Irish men joined the army as it was their only access to food.⠀
To put Ireland into context at the time, a British publication looking into Ireland as a possible tourist destination for British tourists described it in the following terms; "To the natives, the third world would be considered a wild dream of paradise".⠀
By 1815, Barry had qualified as a Surgeon, one of the first Irish people to do so. In 1827, Barry was the head of the medical divisions for the entire British Army.⠀
Barry's major achievement however was the performance of one of the first ever successful Caesarean sections, the methods used on that day are still considered best practice today. At one point there was a discussion to rename the surgery to include Barry's name given the role Barry played in perfecting it and saving millions of lives.⠀
You might think it's a bit odd that a military person would be that concerned with Caesarean sections given not a lot of soldiers will need this during battle. Well, here comes the plot twist...⠀
Upon Barry's death from dysentery in 1865, it was discovered that he was not a he at all. Barry's real name was Margaret Ann Bulkley and she had hidden her identity for almost 56 years to achieve her dream of working as a surgeon and helping those who would need it most.⠀ #irelandloves#inspireireland#instaireland ⠀ #irish_daily ⠀ #rawireland ⠀ #irishpassion ⠀ #ig_ireland ⠀ #discoverireland ⠀ #wildatlanticway ⠀ #exploreireland ⠀ #ireland ⠀ #irelandtravel ⠀ #templebar ⠀ #guiness ⠀ #photography ⠀ #instagram ⠀ #ireland 🍀 ⠀ #ireland 🇮🇪
Walking the old Gap Road in The Nire 🍀🇮🇪❤️
Imagine walking this trail hundreds of years ago in all sorts of rough conditions, have a read of this I found online >>> The Nire did not have a church until 1862 and the graveyard did not come into common use until 1926, thus up to the late 1920s the natives from the Nire were buried in Rathgormack, six miles away across the Comeragh Mountain and across the mountain is the way they went. The funeral path went from the Nire to Rathgormack passing through the Gap along the route called Bóithrín na Sochraide (The funeral road). It is by no means unique but it is still traveled by walkers today. In the mid 18th century the road was engineered as part of famine relief works (this was a famine/genocide that occurred before the great famine of 1845) and parts of the engineering are still visible today especially as you approach the Gap on the Nire side.
The coffin was “shouldered” carried on long poles and along the way there were places where the coffin was placed on a large boulder and everyone took a rest, one such boulder exists on the Nire side called Cloch an Choirp (The body rock). After a rest the funeral proceeded to the Gap, here some mourners would have headed back to the Nire while others from Rathgormack would have waited to join the cortege. The burial took place in Rathgormack and the poles for carrying the coffin were left in the cemetery. . .
