Such a pretty city Prague is! More than 50 cathedrals and churches of note. Though our tour guide said many have been re-purposed for non-religious uses. She also said that 34% of Czechs self-report no religion.
Settled by the seven chieftains of the Magyars in the first century, this land and city has been destroyed and rebuilt countless times. While similar to Prague in terms of two sides with river, bridges, boats and palace, it felt a little more "Soviet" and more poor than Prague but with better food.
I spent a number of months working in Galway, Ireland. On weekends, I covered a lot of the West Coast including hiking to the top of Crough Patrick. The pilgrims who make that hike without shoes must be possessed. I was also gifted with a helicopter ride from Galway down to Co. Claire's Cliffs of Moher. So, some of these shots are from a perspective most do not get.
An awesome history that I never before knew. A secular, yet still Islamic-modest, culture I haven't before encountered. Food I want to eat every day! Accommodating, warm people, some of whom simply want to practice their English, much to my relief, having difficulty myself learning even the don't be-an-American-tourist basics.
