Ireland has a cable car. Yes…..Ireland. Something we’d oft associate with Switzerland or Austria or North America and other alpine places with proper mountains and genuine altitude that can leave you out of breath, exists on the little island where I was born. Which way do cable cars travel? Up right? And down again of … More Dursey Island
I have Netflix to thank for the very first stop on our main adventure. We watched a hilarious Irish movie earlier this year called The Young Offenders. It’s about two young scallywags from Cork who go on a big adventure to find a bale of cocaine washed ashore from a drug trafficking boat. It’s not … More Three Castle Head

It’s been several months since we returned from our three month trip to Berkeley, California and there’s not a day goes by where a random thought about the place doesn’t come into my head. While there I embarked on a little personal project whereby every evening when I finished work I’d go for a stroll … More Cars of Berkeley
Ah yes, The Sound of Music, for many of us it’s our first introduction to Austria….or your first Arnie movie, depending on your preference.

So Austria then, the second leg of our Austro-German holiday trip in the absolutely delightful town of Pertisau on … More I wonder what grass tastes like: Pertisau, Austria.
Just back from a wonderful week in Germany and Austria with our friends from Ireland. We enjoyed a city break in Munich before heading off to Pertisau in Austria to relax and unwind. It was a great trip and I think I might have a new favourite city in Munich. I’ve never been to Germany … More Magnificent Munich
