  • The Camino de Santiago - Camino Portugués

    The Camino de Santiago: Camino Portugués

    Just before the dark broke I left Santiago. It was strange. Everything had been leading to the city but now I was leaving it. I was heading in the opposite direction of the arrows. When I found them. And there was a bit of checking my phone map, especially by the motorway. Eventually, I got…

  • The Camino de Santiago - León to O Cebreiro

    The Camino de Santiago: León to O Cebreiro

    Early on a cold, damp morning, I headed off from León. It felt just a little above 0°, it was windy, showering often and coupled with the usual suburban and industrial sprawl that accompanies leaving a city, it was not the most exciting day for walking. My pack was now heavier, due to a restock…

  • The Camino de Santiago - Burgos to León

    The Camino de Santiago: Burgos to León

    Heading off from Burgos at the unforgivably late hour of 08:30, I was both rested and yet unenthusiastic. My rest had made me lazy. The next big milestone was León and my destination that night was Hornillos del Camino, about 20km off, the terrain being mostly flat and would be a good test for my…

    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.

  • Iceland - West again – Road tripping in the Westfjords, Iceland

    West again – Road tripping in the Westfjords, Iceland continued

    A safe place to park, with a nice view, away from lights to take aurora photographs. Not much to ask right? Apparently yes as I continued my way around the Westfjords in Iceland. That huge solar storm failed to make an appearance up here though. After a lazy-ish morning of just going to the pool…

  • Iceland The Lava Tube Inside an Icelandic lava tunnel

    The Lava Tube: Inside an Icelandic lava tunnel

    Can you imagine walking through a cave, covered in crystals, the walls dripping like with blood that was formed by molten hot lava created more than a thousand years before the pyramids were built? Well, honestly I couldn’t either but I really wanted to check out an Icelandic lava tunnel which is why the other week…

  • Iceland 5 Museums and places to visit in Reykjavik

    Iceland: 5 Museums and places to visit in Reykjavik 

    It’s my last day in Reykjavik and being an overcast day and somewhat raining day it’s a good idea to head indoors after being outside so much. So what are the best museums in Reykjavik? Saga Museum I thought I remembered this museum in Reykjavik as being better. It’s quite expensive and not very large. I…
