The Giant Causeway

A natural phenomenon called rock crystallization formed the Giant Causeway. The rocks are made up of basalt crystals and are naturally hexagonal.

I came across websites about the place as I was doing some research on places-to-visit for the trip. Back then, we haven't quite finalised our plans on Ireland and Northern Ireland just yet. The more I read about it, the more excited I grew. I even came across sites about an underwater pyramid by the coast of Japan. It's like Atlantis all over again!

But yeah, I was very much fascinated by the Giant Causeway and made sure we got to see it somehow.

The hexagonal rocks stack on top of one another and they form pillars. These were found at the inner part of the trail.
