Sunshine&Rain: Balina&Killaloe

by Andreea Păpurică September. 12, 2016 1488 views

Irish weather wasn't kind enough this week to let me see and photograph a beautiful sunrise. It's been raining almost constantly and the wind blew quite strong. However, I believe that Ireland is as beautiful in the rain as it is in the sunshine. This weekend, I went to explore Balina and Killaloe, two beautiful villages connected by a bridge and since I decided to visit two places in one go, the Irish weather offered me sunshine and rain at the same time. I couldn't have asked for more!
