What seemed in the first place to be just another city break for us, turned out to be something more than that. We left home planning to stay in Dublin for 5 days and explore the city as much as we could. But meeting some friends who live in Ireland made us change our plans and decide to go outside of Dublin and explore the country a bit more. So for one day we took a nice road trip to Northern Ireland to check out the Giants Causeway and the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge.
The motto of our blog, taken from Forrest Gump, says “Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.”, well this article fits perfectly to this motto.
The weather this summer is very unstable. We have very hot summer days with over 30-35°C and then in the evening strong thunderstorms and hail. We have rapid temperature changing from one day to the other. This makes thinks difficult for us when we plan to travel or to go hiking in the mountains, especially with a baby. The same thing happened one month ago, when we planned to go to the Buila-Vânturariţa National Park.
So we decided not to go up on the mountain and instead we chose to go to the nearby town Horezu and admire some traditional pottery. Horezu ceramics are a unique handmade traditional craft and were inscribed in 2012 on the UNESCO Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
