On the Road is a weekday feature spotlighting reader photo submissions. From the exotic to the familiar, whether you’re traveling or in your own backyard, we would love to see the world through your eyes.
On the Road will continue, but it will be forever Alain’s.
Good Morning All,
This weekday feature is for Juicers who are are on the road, traveling, or just want to share a little bit of their world via stories and pictures. So many of us rise each morning, eager for something beautiful, inspiring, amazing, subtle, of note, and our community delivers – a view into their world, whether they’re far away or close to home – pictures with a story, with context, with meaning, sometimes just beauty. By concentrating travel updates and tips here, it’s easier for all of us to keep up or find them later.
So please, speak up and share some of your adventures and travel news here, and submit your pictures using our speedy, secure form. You can submit up to 7 pictures at a time, with an overall description and one for each picture.
You can, of course, send an email with pictures if the form gives you trouble, or if you are trying to submit something special, like a zipped archive or a movie. If your pictures are already hosted online, then please email the links with your descriptions.
For each picture, it’s best to provide your commenter screenname, description, where it was taken, and date. It’s tough to keep everyone’s email address and screenname straight, so don’t assume that I remember it “from last time”. More and more, the first photo before the fold will be from a commenter, so making it easy to locate the screenname when I’ve found a compelling photo is crucial.
Have a wonderful day, and enjoy the pictures!
Today, pictures from valued commenter piratedan.
As a graduation present for our eldest when we were flush financially was to take him on a trip of his choosing and he chose Ireland, what follows is a smattering of items that we took snaps of while we were there in the early summer of 07. We elected to do it on our own, so after a couple of days in a Dublin hotel, we took a train to Galway, spent a night there and then rented a car to head to a central location which was a townhome in a more or less central location and in American fashion drove around the country to see what we could see in day trips. We visited The Burrens, Dingle, Cork, Waterford, Kilkenny and spent a good amount of time actually seeing the country. Awesome experience….
because we needed at least one flower picture to balance out all of the grey stone, here’s a splash of color…
Looks like a great trip! I vaguely remember visiting Dublin (even saw Pirates of Penzance at some great theatre!) between Christmas and New Year’s. It was cold, damp, cold, dark, cold, but I did get to kiss the Blarney Stone, reinforcing my gift of the gab. I was 14, and we left the theatre around 10 on New Year’s eve, and my mother was wearing her prize fur coat. Two older teenage Irish girls were repulsed by it, and unbeknownst to her, sprayed some pink shaving cream on her back. I stood there and grinned at these cute animal activists (a cause I then and still do support!) while not defending my mother. Not my finest moment…
Thank you so much piratedan, do send us more when you can.
Travel safely everybody, and do share some stories in the comments, even if you’re joining the conversation late. Many folks confide that they go back and read old threads, one reason these are available on the Quick Links menu.
