Dublin The Irish capital was my first call on my trip to the Green Island.

Connemara ... but my actual destination was the Connemara region, in the far west of Ireland, close to Galway. I wanted to go there for two reasons: first because it's well-known for its beautiful landscape, its fjords and its cliffs; and second because once I wanted to stand on the far west coast of Europe, looking out west-ward and knowing that now there would be only water, for 5000 km, all the way to America.
