A fortune teller in India read my hand recently and told me that I am loving nature. I thought this is quite rhetorical, because I don't know anyone, who doesn't love nature?!? And I am not very fond of going out into the nature, but there are a few places that just impress you to the bone. One of those places are the Aran Islands west of the grand mother island Ireland. It is one of the remains of Gaelic culture and the Celts.

There are no cars allowed as far as I know, but maybe some agricultural vehicles. So you basically get around with bikes, which you can rent easily at the port, which naturally is your hub from Galway, Rosaveel or Doolin from the mainland. The island is at the same time freshly green and rough. There are stones everywhere basically the whole island is a grand rock. While you pass the streets you see old Celtic crosses and little square plots, which separate private property from one another, as far as I understood it. In these little fields loads of sheep graze and make their meat delicious. There are ugly horses, which were probably exiled from the main land because of there impossible teeth and looks. Most impressive are surely the cliffs of the island. They go straight to the sea 90 degrees bottom down. This as scary as amazing and makes you feel chosen. I would say Aran Islands have the best in store for what Ireland stands for.
