I think what makes Ireland such a special destination is actually just the place itself, the raw and natural beauty of the country and how it vary so much from the eastern coast to the wild rugged west coast. Stunning beautiful cliffs. The Northern Coast is just amazing but it's also different and lovely. But it's raw, natural beauty. It's phenomenal stuff. Makes for great pictures. But it's the people that you meet along the way and the stories that they have to tell. Irish people Are all about making connections, and they're all about warmth. I think the people are just so welcoming in Ireland and we love chats, we love conversations, so Irish people love meeting other people and welcoming other people to Ireland. [MUSIC] As a destination, I think Northern Ireland has so much to offer. It really is A little region with so many stories to tell. Whether it be people that you meet along your journey or unexpected pieces of scenery. Or just little incidents that happen. Ireland will always deliver you up something that you weren't expecting. It has in itself a unique Type of culture, especially on the West coast where we have still active pockets of the Gaelic culture and areas known as the Glaotook. And the language is very much a living part of that culture. And then of course I've got to say because I'm involved in food. I've got to say that the food and produces just its just second to none. And I think now its so great that Ireland is becoming really well known for that. So whatever reason you find yourself in Ireland be it the north, south, east, or west. You are going to find yourself some really good food. They're the two things I love, the landscape and the people. But what glues it together, I've found over the years, is the culture and every time I go out on the road, and every time I go exploring and I find a new combination or a new permeation of those things, and that's what keeps me enchanted.
