The unique peninsula of Inishowen in Donegal, is the North of the North, where people live gracefully and with kindness. We were welcomed at the most delightful hostel, with camping by a river next to the oldest bridge in Ireland. The hostel kitchen was spectacular, and they let us dry off in a room the first night. Freshly baked bread welcomed us at breakfast, and Jo at the health food store supplied us with local apples, cheeses, honey, a huge tub of peanut butter, and a heap of fresh veggies for soup.

A group of local kids came by to meet us and we played a wild game of Quidditch.
