We continued our journey around the Wild Atlantic Way and headed for the beauty of County Galway. Given our tight schedule, we unfortunately didn’t have time to explore County Clare and the Burren. They’ll have to wait for another trip in the future. After stopping for a bit of a nap on the way, we … More Inis Mór and Connemara
After being spoiled with the beautiful landscapes of County Cork, our roadtrip continued into the Kingdom, County Kerry. The Irish landscape has been made famous by Hollywood and a lot of that romanticism that is talked about comes from the classic movies of the 50’s and 60’s that made this area famous. Ask most younger … More Kerry Cliffs & Bray Head
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
FINALLY getting around to starting the blog posts from our big trip and there’s going to be a few! We started our big trip in my home country of Ireland where we started off in north county Dublin at my parents’ home in Loughshinny. Just up the road there is a beautiful castle and gardens … More Ardgillan Gardens
With the questionable weather we’ve been having in Tasmania recently, getting out for a big hike or to climb another Abel has proved elusive. Our attention has thus been drawn closer to home and towards shorter walks in the Hobart area. One such walk I’ve always wondered about is getting as close as possible to … More Walk to Cape Direction
I’ve been living in Tasmania for over two years now and have seen some incredible places, truly amazing sights that have made me pinch myself just to check if I’m awake and aren’t living in some dream world. They’ve all been in the South of Tassie though, I’ve neglected the North of this great island … More Northwest Tasmania Roadtrip
I just realised I never uploaded a post from that wonderful trip I took with my parents just before moving to Tasmania, you know…..back in March 2015!! Whoops! My parents (the wonderful people that they are, Hi Mom! Hi Dad!) offered to drive me down early and do a little road trip around the Ring … More Dingle Peninsula: County Kerry, Ireland
These Instameets keep getting better and better! For our latest adventure we headed to the south of Tasmania. Our first port of call was the exceedingly delightful Chapel Lane Hall, a former church with over 100 years of history under its roof. The space has been lovingly converted into self-contained accommodation with tasteful touches and … More Far South Instameet: Trains, caves and a nice cup of tea.
Regular readers of this blog and followers of my Instagram will know I really like urban exploration. I didn’t get a chance to do much of it in the Czech Republic while we were there, however the little bit I did was awesome! Now that we’re in Tasmania I’ve been hoping to check out the … More Willow Court Asylum
Yesterday I had the pleasure of attending another Instameet with the ever more familiar (and growing) group of photographers I’ve been getting to know over the past few weeks. Shene Estate was the venue of choice for this Instameet, organised by @lifecatchme with support from @loves_laughs, @jayedevil and @lovethywalrus. Being without vehicular transport for the … More Shene Estate: Ordinary people, extraordinary challenge.
