Cork, Ireland

Well, until not so long ago I used to classify Ireland in the 'rare countries'...but now, one way or another, I got a number of postcards from there, so I could use them more often here :)

The card shows the Blarney Castle, which is situated 7 km from Cork City. The Castle is famous for its Stone, which has the traditional power of conferring eloquence on all who kiss it. The word "Blarney" has found its way into the English Language and has been described as pleasant talk, intended to deceive without offending. The famous Stone is set in the wall below the battlements, and to kiss it, one has to lean backwards (grasping the iron railing) from the parapet walk.

Yeah, nothing good comes easy ;)

Have a great day and see you soon hopefully!

Ех овоа ме потсети на еден филм leap year, нов е 2010. Тешка романтика. У Ирска се дешава. Прекрасна природа.
Приказната апла романтична и мене така ме стопи како путер на сонце, па оди после собери се. Па ме потсети на некои романтични дешавки у Кина (шшш..донт тел ениуан)... :Р

А не сум љубител на романтика многу ама ете си имам моменти..

Ај (sigh) (Дури и се римуваат)
