Day 9 - Ring 'Round the Kerry(p2)

WOW okay I finally get a chance, here you go guys
Another stop on the Ring of Kerry. A rare insight into how they make modern buildings look old.

 We were actually here to watch this man herd sheep with his dogs. It was very impressive just how well he commanded the dogs and how completely the dogs followed every whistle he made.
 He used the entire hill. Only one of the two pups. For the biggest herds he says you only need three dogs max.

Quick update

I'm still here guys, I know it's been a while since the last update, nor was it very long. I just finished my finals so I'll be able to do the next post soon now, I didn't get longer than 10 minutes on the computer in the last 6 days or so, been rather busy

Day 9 - Ring 'Round the Kerry

If you guys thought all that day 8 was big, you're in for another one. Although it won't be as big as yesterday: Here's part 1
Today is going to be a very big day. We’re driving the Ring of Kerry which is supposed to have some of the best scenery in Ireland. We’ll pass through a few small towns and make some stops but much of the day will be driving and taking in the sights. We’ll end at Randles Court again.
Our driver, guides and planners doing what they do best: Discussing. The man in blue was to be a temporary driver for Nigel who would go over his allowed time driving without a rest if he drove us around all day.

 Shortly afterward, we were underway
Our first photo stop.

 I don't remember the story behind this guy, but it was entertaining
The big trip around the ring and the main stops will begin on the next post!

Day 8 - Killarney and Sleeping in the Court (p6)

I know I disappoint with how slow I update sometimes, school + work + extra time is spent doing whatever needs done means I'm fucking tired most of the time.
This is the final one for the day
We arrived back at Killarney and went to Randle’s Court who made sure to let us know we can’t lose the keys; Apparently each room was keyed individually and they had few, if any, copies.

 After a short break it was time to explore. It was still early in the day and Killarney is a huge tourist town...I didn't take many pictures of it, though

Then it was time to sleep to get ready for the next day
