The Giant's Causeway I have been to when I was about 12 on a wet day but even so it was astounding.

Denise think of Fingals Cave in Scotland [the one Keats saw and admired and which Mendelssohn wrote the Hebrides Overture about] but horizontal, sprawling and beautifully desolate.

Also the Mourne Mountains are wonderful for a good old romantic hill walk. :wink:

There are so many beautiful places to visit in this country.

Christmas was okay - the start of this New Year not so good and that's an understatement.

Sorry I couldn't meet you guys by the way Edward I was really disappointed :(

Would you be willing to post your pictures of Hampstead/Keats House? I haven't been there in over 10 years and I know things have changed :)

My favorite place I've seen in Ireland so far is Glendalough in Co. Wicklow. There are some great hiking trails there and spectacular views.

I've got a whole month off now before classes start again, so I'm definitely going to be doing some travelling!

Hooray!! :) Mahalo a nui loa (that's "thanks a lot" in Hawaiian). I need to use a warm language today because it is about 3F outside and our high is only going to be 15F. Welcome winter! :roll:
