Adventure in Ireland | Rachel Gaffney's Real Ireland - Episode 29

Podcast cover
Read more
For some, it means adrenaline pumping, risk-taking, exciting and thrilling.

For others, it means discovery and the thrill of learning something new.

No matter where you go, how high you climb or how fast you go, surely to be ‘Adventurous’ it’s merely your state of mind.

The willingness to let the road lead you to somewhere new, to stop and meet the people along the way, take the side roads and even allow the detours to be a thing of pleasure rather than an inconvenience.
