Viewpoint in the town of Portrush

When you arrive at the small town of Portrush, in Antrim County (North Ireland), you breathe the sea air and the tranquility of the seaside towns. No more than 6,500 inhabitants are registered here, but its popularity as a summer resort causes its population to multiply during the summer months.

We spent a couple of days in June enjoying the place.

We arrived at Portrush at night, after a day in which we had visited the mysterious Rathlin Island, the walkways between the cliffs of The gobbins and the famous Giant's Causeway.

When I touched the hotel bed, I fell asleep. Also, the next morning I would have to meet at 6 with my travel companions. I thought it was going to cost me to wake up, but in a place where the sun rises at 4 and a little and the blinds do not exist, the complicated thing is to continue sleeping from that time.

When I met the Germans Mirko, George and Anna, the Danish Thomas, the Belgian with an unpronounceable name, the Frenchwoman Anne and the great Billy (our guide) oozed an unstoppable good mood that my classmates were surprised.
