When I think of the word “exhausting”, the first thing that comes to my mind is definitely Glendalough.
Before starting our big hike in Glendalough, I bought some ice cream while it was raining and the weather was really cold; therefore you can say that I’m officially turning into an Irish person, which means that in a few weeks I’ll be completely insane.
One of the most interesting facts about Glendalough is that the walking path is made out of sleepers from an old traintrack. The path has twisted nails in it to prevent accidents such as slipping. However, they didn’t work for me and I slipped.
When we started our hike, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. the hike is simply beautiful. We were surrounded by amazing landscape and gorgeous Japanese deer. Nevertheless, it is exhausting. It is a must-have on your bucket list and it will be, without doubt, one of the most amazing experiences of your life.
