My friend Liz, whom I go on holidays with has a second home beside this beautiful empty beach in the Gaeltacht area of Donegal, Ireland. The people in this region speak Gaelic, a notoriously difficult language to learn. The sign posts are in Irish and it is very easy to get lost. But getting lost in this lovely area of Ireland is half the fun. Invariably you will find these completely empty beaches which stretch for miles along this Atlantic Coast. There are also loads of little bars with turf fires where you can partake of Guinness and enjoy the craic. In the past I used to get lost in these little bars for days on end. I remember one delightful weekend when the bar owner, who was also the local undertaker ended up burning coffins on the log fire when he ran out of turf. It could only happen in Ireland. It is easier, by the way, to speak Irish after copious amounts of the black stuff.
