Stumbling upon a video that ignites a toasty flame of wanderlust within your belly can be a dangerous thing.

I’ve been guilty of making rash, spur-of-the-moment splurges on all sorts of adventures after flicking onto a photo of some far-off land on Instagram.

That being said, it’s no mean feat to influence that giddy need to travel with a photo or video.

It requires a special kind of sauce to really impact a viewer, and inspire them to the point where they really want to do something.

Luke, a self-taught, freelance photographer and content creator from Kildare, has a YouTube channel wedged with videos that’d leave you foaming at the mouth.

A Brief History of Antrim’s rope bridge

Although fishing at Carrick-a-Rede began around 1620, it wasn’t until 1755 that the first rope bridge between the mainland and Carrick-a-Rede Island was erected.

During the 19th century, many fishermen frequented the waters around the bridge, with catches of up to 300 salmon common until the 1960’s.
