#EsTrails: Wicklow Mountains National Park

Hello beautiful earthlings!
On Wednesday, my sistars and I decided to go on a road trip to Wicklow to hike its mountains.  My sister Steffi brought her boyfriend along since he was the one driving us there.  It was a good day to go on a hike since it did not rain (THANK GOD!) but the wind was quite cold.

The back seat passengers took a mandatory selca (I'm still not used to the word selfie).  We left our place at around 11/11:15.

We listened to a lot of KPOP on our way to Wicklow. It was mostly G-Dragon and BTS.

The scenery was beautiful.  Though I just wished that the sky was bluer.

Of course there were banters here and there during our hiking trip. Steffi told me to photoshop Edward of Twilight in this photo but I suck at photoshopping. I simply snapchatted this photo, and added a red stick man on that tree haha!

Nikki and Bianca wanted me to add Jacob in this photo. Instead I snapchatted this with two red stickmen representing Jacob Black haha

The view up there was beautiful. I think this was the lake Glendalough.

I wanted to have a photo of me doing the tree pose but I lost balance and the camera captured it.  Instead of putting a caption like "Yoga pose fail" I'd like to label this as "Ninja wanna-be".

We took photos of komorebi.  Even though it was a complete failure due to the lack of sunshine.  What is a komorebi you ask? Watch WongFu'd video here.

Poulanass waterfall was so pretty! And a little loud but I did not mind it.

It took us almost three hours hiking the mountain and when we reached the bottom, I was captivated by Glendalough's beauty.

There was a camera post in the middle for people to leave their cameras as they take photos of themselves with this in the background.

This was me trying to set the camera but forgot to put the timer on!

And this was the final result.

And no, I would not apologize for the state of my face. I hiked for almost three hours and I was hungry.  I should be proud of pulling of a smile with an empty stomach! Haha

On our way back to the car, Bianca noticed that this was the monastery Wicklow is well known for.  I think this was just the back of it.

After our trip, we drove to Dun Laoghaire to visit this ice-cream parlour called Scrumdiddly's.  I will be posting a blog post about it in the next few days! So look forward to that.

I hope you guys enjoy reading this post!
Peace & Love!
