I want to cycle around the country this summer. Take in all it has to offer.

Aww yeah - absolutely!
Especially when you discover a new place that you have never been to and it's amazing!
Keash Caves in Sligo - only discovered them this year. Why did I never hear of them before?

Why shouldn't I? - I'm simply giving my take on the OP's question much as anyone else is surely?

Was considering doing that myself. Ireland is a great place to cycle. The scenery along the countryside is magnificent at times, 'cept for when you come across the odd mountain of horse sh*t in the middle of the road. But other than that tis grand.

Funnily enough I feel completely different. Looking at a picturesque scene I'm inspired to ask questions, simple enough like, Why is the sky blue, or the grass green? How did that mountain get there, and why is it shaped like that? What neurotransmitters are released in the brain when looking at a beautiful landscape? Questions a 'God' will never ever answer.

Mere materialism will never ultimately answer. Science can help us understand a bit of how creation happened but not ultimately so. It can describe processes but not ultimate causation.

That's my take. I'm not surprised that people disagree.

I remember one time feeling very stressed and generally peed off with things, sitting beside a river bank passing time and trying to de-stress.
When a kingfisher landed on my shoulder, surveying his world. He sat there for quite a few seconds, then kind of nodded at me and flew off.
He reminded me that life can be beautiful.

I like looking at landscape with no human influence visible. Sometimes looking at the cityscape here in London somewhere you can see a panorama of the place just scares me, thinking of all the stuff going on and wondering where the f**k all the rubbish goes!

I was in the US a while back and visited the Grand Canyon, we were staying in cabins near it and the first night we stayed up drinking til the small hours, walked down to the canyon later and just sat there watching the sun come up over it, best part of the whole trip, its completely humbling to see something like that. Its one of those things that you've seen in movies and nature shows and the like but until you see the actual size of the thing in real life you can't comprehend it, its mind blowing.
