We spent most of the day traveling with:
An early train from Dublin to Belfast
A train from Belfast to Coleraine
A bus from Coleraine to the Giants Causeway
On our first train a chatty old Irish man sat with us. We talked about religion, politics, traveling, marriage, and a bit more. He was really nice and made the trip go by quickly.
We arrived at the causeway around 4 and our hostel was literally (and I don’t use that word metaphorically like most people do) right next to the entrance to the causeway. Not only that but it was a decent price, came with breakfast, and had a sunroom with a great view (lush grass, cows, sheep, and the ocean in the distance).
Unfortunately Amy had a pretty bad headache, so while she took a nap I went to explore the causeway. It was a very windy day and the waves were impressive to watch as they smashed against the causeway. I headed back, Amy woke up and we spent the evening chatting with a man from Switzerland who was staying at the hostel. We had to pass on the £3.50 double cheeseburger BBQ dinner at the hostel but the proprietor was kind enough to give us the leftover chips and vegetables from dinner for free. We went to bed early in anticipation of an exciting day exploring the causeway.
