  • There’s no place like home - Things to do in County Waterford, Ireland

    There’s no place like home: County Waterford, Ireland

    There’s no place like home right? The last few weeks have been pretty busy preparing for a long-overdue summer trip home. Aside from catching up with friends and a million errands, I’m most looking forward to spending time with the family of course and driving around the Déise in Co Waterford, revisiting some favourite sites.

    5 Unmissable places to visit in Ireland

    This is an incredibly hard list to write. I mean incredibly. 5 Unmissable places to visit in Ireland? Only five? So I’m cheating a little and adding some together. Look it’s my list so I can ok? Some of these are pretty touristy but then again there’s a reason for so many people going there.…

  • Iceland - Glacier Walks and Ice Caves - Skaftafell and Fjallsárlón

    Iceland: Glacier Walks and Ice Caves

    Two things on my Icelandic bucket list were to walk on a glacier and to visit an ice cave. Ice caves can be really stunning with amazing shades of blue and sweeping arcs of ice, and well, who doesn’t want to walk on a glacier? After asking Katherina, my friend who works as a tourist…

  • Iceland Winter Lights Festival

    Things to do in Iceland: Winter Lights Festival

    The Winter Lights festival, or Vetrarhátíð, brightens up a dreary and cold February in Iceland. Celebrating the lengthening days, the festival is a combination of cultural events, light installations and many museums are free which is a great bonus. Many museums put on special guided tours or events, there’s art everywhere, language classes, storytelling, there was…

  • Can I travel alone as a woman? Read about my experiences of travelling solo as a female and get inspired to travel alone as a woman.

    Why female solo travel?

    Can I travel alone as a woman? I was asked not so long ago about my experiences of travelling solo as a female. Why did I do it? What did I worry about? What made me think I could do it? To be honest, it never occurred to me that I wasn’t able to travel…

  • 10 Unmissable pubs to visit in Dublin's city centre

    10 Unmissable pubs to visit in Dublin’s city centre

    “Good puzzle would be to cross Dublin without passing a pub”, mused Leopold Bloom in James Joyce’s Ulysses. Yes (and it’s been solved), but why on earth would you want to? When I started, this list was 3 Unmissable pubs to visit in Dublin, then became five, then ten, then limited to the city centre…

  • The Right Way to Travel

    The Right Way to Travel

    I’ll admit the title is click bait. Type “travel blog” into Google and you get 270 million hits. Searches for expert travel (248 million), travel like a pro (48 million), or the right way to travel (486 million) just go to show how much is written about travelling. And before you say anything, yes I know I’m guilty. The…

  • Bucketlists and Travel Goals

    Bucketlists and Travel Goals

    It´s that time of the year, come January it’s all new diaries, resolutions and of course travel plans. Looking back over my Travel Goals for 2017 I got thinking. I saw Arctic foxes in the Westfjords which was amazing, I did a road trip through the Highlands and I got to see more of the Northern…

  • Iceland Christmas and New Year’s Eve in Iceland

    Christmas and New Year’s Eve in Iceland

    Despite appearances, I do like Christmas. Just not when the hype starts in September. But now that’s it’s December I can get into the Christmas spirit and there’s a few differences with Christmas in Iceland that I’m enjoying learning about. Here Christmas is called Jól, which we know as Yule, an ancient pre-Christian feast. Icelanders…

  • Books to read while travelling in Scotland, Norway, Iceland and Ireland

    Books to read while travelling in Scotland, Norway, Iceland and Ireland

    Sometimes people joke that I travel just so I can read in peace and quiet. In fact, when we set off on the Northwest Passage I packed over thirty books. It’s not completely true but I can’t set off without books to read and I especially love reading something set in the country I’m visiting. It’s…
