Irelands Southwest and West (Part 6) — The Digital Journey

Part 6 of our 2017 trip through Irleands South­w­est and West. Fol­low­ing the earli­er ana­log series, this part now cov­ers the digit­al jour­ney around Ire­lands South­w­est and West and com­pletes the series finally.

After arriv­ing at Dub­lin Air­port, we headed south to Kilkenny …

Here at Matt The Millers, I learned that the fam­ous Kilkenny was no longer brewed in the town, but at the Guin­ness Brew­ery in Dub­lin — OMG.

Hiking the Burgruine Weissenstein

Between the years we were hik­ing to the Burg Weis­sen­stein in the Upper Palat­in­ates Stone­wood Forest. Dur­ing a snowstorm, in a winter won­der­land, we found the Burg covered by an ice shield. This area is one of my favor­ite hik­ing regions dur­ing all seasons.

All images were taken with the highly appre­ci­ated Ricoh GR II. The more I use this cam­era, the more I find it a really won­der­ful cam­era, both, in the res­ult­ing images and in the ease and flex­ib­il­ity of use.

Hiking around Flossenbürg and Gaisweiher

The last day of the year A.D. 2017 we made a short trip to the Burg Flossen­bürg.

The small town is know for one of the KZ (Con­cen­tra­tion Camp) dur­ing the darkest era in Ger­man his­tory — the Nazi Era. This time how­ever, we did not vis­it the KZ, but hiked down to the small lake — the Gais­wei­h­er. That’s a short hik­ing tour which takes ~1,5 hours.

Not to men­tion, I gave the Ricoh GR II anoth­er try. It did not dis­ap­point me and delivered won­der­ful results.
