Kissing The Blarney Stone

Travel

Blarney Castle near Cork, Ireland is a very popular tourist destination.

Therefore we decided to pay it a visit and kiss the Blarney stone. Why kiss a stone? Well kissing the Blarney stone is said to give you the gift of eloquence. Being an English student this is a very promising gift to me.

So we climbed up the tiny narrow spiral stairs all the way to the top of the castle so that we could hang upside down and kiss a stone that was once kissed by Winston Churchill too. Thousands of people have kissed this stone – this means thousands of cooties and using a disinfectant is not a bad idea. Not that we did.
