“Road trips are the ultimate form of travel — complete freedom,” says Sebastian Canaves. His eyes sweep over the almost endless rich green of Ireland, the steep cliffs and finally out to the open sea. A stiff breeze blows into the face of the travel blogger, who is exploring the Wild Atlantic Way in Ireland together with his partner Line Dubois and the Porsche 718 Cayman GTS.
Sebastian Canaves has travelled the world. He has already seen all the continents of this earth, visited more than 100 countries, and runs one of the most successful travel blogs in Europe with “Off the Path”. And yet, at this moment, you can feel how impressed he is by the natural force of Ireland and the ever-present expanse of the country.
“This is one of the most spectacular and beautiful road trips I know,” says the outdoor expert. He is referring to the Wild Atlantic Way. More than 2,600 km in length, this is one of the longest and oldest defined coastal roads in the world. From the far north and the sleepy villages of Donegal to the small coastal town of Kinsale in the south of County Cork, the road hugs the coast directly next to the ocean.
“A new adventure awaits around every corner,” says Canaves. Behind the wheel of the bright yellow 718 Cayman GTS, the focus will be on sporty driving for the blogger in the coming days. Here in particular, where twisting bends add a little extra excitement, the mid-engined sports car from Porsche is the perfect choice. Driving through enchanting small villages and lively towns, passing monumental historic buildings and countless herds of sheep while bright sunshine alternates with mythical fog, green Ireland shows its magical side.
