I was waiting for a geohash close to my place for a couple of months already (I have no car and public transport in Ireland is almost non-existant) and finally - it was generated very close to the city.


As it was my very first expedition, I was very excited about it. I wasn't expecting grand adventure, as the destination was just an hour walk from the city, but I was positively surprised, when I found a medieval tower on my way, that I had no idea was there. The spot itself was just outside some nice looking house. In total it was 12 km of walking there and back, a little hill climbing and running for your life on the busy road without any pedestrian pavement.
