Si estás en Cork y quieres hacer un paseo por el día, Cobh es el lugar. Este pequeño balneario se encuentra a alrededor de una hora de Cork y puedes ir en bus o tren.
Cobh es famoso por su museo del Titanic, ya que fue en este puerto la última vez que el Titanic tocó tierra.
En este lugar subieron 113 pasajeros de tercera clase, 7 de segunda y otros 7 decidieron bajarse del barco.
Todo eso y más lo puedes ver en el museo del Titanic. .
While waiting for breakfast this morning I walked towards the harbour. I passed a few derelict buildings, the post office with its green signage and afterwards stopped in the memorial garden. I noted the names of those who had died in the 1980s hunger strikes, as well as an earlier group from the 1920s. As I’d cycled into town the day before, after passing the sand dunes, a riding stables and on the main street surf and bike shops, I’d seen the faces of those who signed the Anglo-Irish Treaty in 1921 painted on a wall. By then I had begun to appreciate the extent to which the horrors of English occupation lived on in Ireland in people’s minds.

The magical lotus flower is a symbol of divinity & creation itself.
With fossil records dating back 130 million years, this sacred flower is one of the oldest plants on earth.
At one time it proliferated in both Northern and Southern hemispheres, but due to climate change it’s native habit has declined.
Revered in the art, literature and mythology of a wide range of cultures (including the ancient Greeks), it is well known for being sacred to Buddhists, Hindu religions & yoga teachers. There is even ethno-botanical evidence that Native Americans used it as a herb in sun ceremonies.
What is particularly fascinating about the lotus is the journey it undertakes to flower.
Having it's roots immersed in water, every night at sunset the flower retreats into the murky pond. At dawn it pushes it's way through the darkness toward the light, to flower once again, untainted by mud or water.
Thus, the flower holds powerful symbolism associated with death & rebirth, which is why ancient Egyptian mythology describes the lotus as giving birth to the sun.
Due to its magnificence & beauty, the lotus is also considered the embodiment of purity & perfection.
It's bud is often compared to a folded heart or soul that has the ability to blossom or awaken to divine truth.
Such incredible imagery teaches us that it is possible to unfold from the dark night into awareness; to expand into a state of higher consciousness & find healing & wisdom, while remaining firmly connected to our root.
