Adrenaline on Goat Island

Goat Island, located 5 kilometers west of Ardmore in County Waterford, Ireland, is an adventure of a lifetime! As you are driving to Goat Island, your heart is in the pit of your stomach because of the narrow road on the cliff and the ocean right beside you. But, the horrifying car ride is worth it.


When you finally arrive you see a spectacular view of the ocean and a beach engulfed by cliffs and caves. The first thing I did was have a picnic on top of the cliff overlooking the ocean; the view was nothing I have ever seen before. After I finished lunch, I made my way down to the beach and went swimming, then I noticed people were cliff jumping.


Being the adventurous person I am, I decided to give it a try. As I made my way over to the edge of the cliff, I was shaking with fear, but when I jumped, exhilaration took over, and I went again and again and again.


After tiring myself out, I decided to go and explore some of the caves surrounding the beach. Goat Island is filled with so many activities — you are able to explore caves and jump off cliffs, star gaze at night, have bonfires, go fishing, rock climbing, and swimming. If you are looking for an adventure and a good time, Goat Island should be next on your bucket list.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.

Tuparka Infinity Scarf

Regardless of the temperatures outside, a scarf can be the perfect travel companion if the wind picks up, the sun comes out and you need a shield, you need to cover your shoulders to enter a religious house, or you travel to or through a Muslim country and you need to cover up for modesty. But not all scarves are created equal. In fact, some scarves are created solely for traveling.
