It’s long been a dream of mine to visit Iceland, from the first time I saw programmes about it on the TV I’ve been intrigued and fascinated by this place. In recent years, Iceland has exploded in popularity thanks in no small part to Instagram as well as Hollywood choosing it as the location for … More Iceland: The Wild West
It’s been a bit of a hiatus between adventures after poor Gemma was unwell for a bit. The itch to get out and explore more of Tassie was at last scratched last weekend, as we took a trip South……waaaaaaaay South. Pretty much as far South as you can possibly go in Australia to be precise. … More South Cape Bay
You’d think after four visits I’d be sick to death of Maria Island. Happy to say that is far from the case as I already can’t wait to get back. I’ve said in all three previous posts about this place that is has something special about it. There’s always something new to experience and even … More Maria the Fourth be with you

I barely know where to start with this post. I could write a big long winded description of where we went and what we did. I could describe how to get there, where to stay and highlights along the way but this time I think I’ll just let the photos do the explaining and add … More Binalong Bay and beyond.
Back home in Dublin I was very fortunate to live right beside the seaside, my home town of Portmarnock has a gorgeous sandy beach that goes on and on for what seems like an eternity. After living in the landlocked Czech Republic for the past two years, it has been a pleasure to live beside … More South Arm: An oasis beyond the city
In geology and geomorphology, a tessellated pavement is a relatively flat rock surface that is subdivided into more or less regular rectangles, blocks approaching rectangles, or irregular or regular polygons by fractures, frequently systematic joints, within the rock. This type of rock pavement bears this name because it is fractured into polygonal blocks that resemble … More Tessellated Pavement: Of loaves, pans and canyons.
Just before we moved up to Mount Nelson we had the time to explore our neighbourhood around Sandy Bay. We took a stroll down to the Wrest Point hotel and casino and then continued SE along Sandy Bay Road towards Long Beach. The buildings and houses along the way reminded us a lot of home … More Long Beach and Little Sandy Bay, Hobart.
