Awe Pt. 2

The trip had been planned for a long time. Transport had been booked. Cleareances had been obtained. Lunch had been ordered. It had taken the true precision and planning of a military operation to get 20 men to one of the most popular tourist destinations in Northern Ireland.

The romantic in me liked to believe that it had been built so that Finn MacCumhaill could walk to Scotland to beat up Benandonner. The visitor centre would have us believe that actually it was the result of a volcanic eruption 60 million years ago.

Whatever the truth the Giant's Causeway is truly awe inspiring. Oh and we got to visit the Bushmill's distillery on the way back...........

A lot of people will not go to Northern Ireland because of the troubles but they are missing out on so much. I would say its one of the best places to go and visit there is so much to see and do.By you writing this it will make people see that there are good things about Northern Ireland aswell
