Ireland, known as Green Island
Hiking on Ireland, new country, new highest mountain …
After I had been able to get to know a nice Irishman during my London trip, and spontaneously already spontaneously planed to travel to Ireland next, it was finally from 3 to 8 September 2015 so far.
As so often, I decided for Ryanair and started from Memmingen to the adventure.
The only thing planned in advance was the ascent of the highest mountain of the green island and overnight at Killarney International Hostel.

The ride with the long-distance bus costs 24 € and lasts a good 3 h with change in Limerick. There are certainly some cheaper alternatives, but I have neither the time nor the nerve to deal with it. Finally I have to walk the Killarney walk through the Killarney National Park to the Black Valley Hostel and this with my 10 kg of luggage …

Caher – Carrauntoohil – Cronin`s Yard It shoots through my head for just a second, but reversing is futile and more dangerous than fighting high here. Therefore, it is necessary to focus on its strengths, to mobilize all forces and to continue to climb higher. As I get past the slippery stone passage, it gets…
