One of the things I like to do when in a new place is to venture out for a quick exploration of the local countryside. I took my son for a football tournament in Ireland a couple of weeks ago, eleven manic lads in a surfing hostel was not that relaxing, surprisingly! On the first evening, everyone was heading out to the arcade, my lad and I decided to go explore instead. A couple of hours spent wandering along the cliffs and beaches of Bundoran was such a nice escape. Sometimes these little unplanned moments are just what you need. We shared the sunset and headed back to the chaos refreshed. You get to see such amazing places at times when you just stick your boots on and head off with no plan.
