  • 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 - O Cebreiro to Santiago

    The Camino de Santiago: O Cebreiro to Santiago de Compostela

    The albergue in O Cebreiro was freezing that night and, though I had three layers top and bottom, I could not get warm. Unsurprising then when I went out and found the village of O Cebreiro a pretty winter wonderland in the snow. Again I decided to take the main road down from O Cebreiro,…

  • Waterfalls in Iceland - Glymur

    Waterfalls in Iceland: Glymur

    “It’s the second-highest.” “No, it’s the highest.” “No, it used to be the highest, then they found another one.” “I refuse to believe you! Prove it!” “There’s no signal.” “Ha! See, I was right!” So went the argument as we enjoyed a break from the most un-Icelandic heat of a summer’s day, sitting in front of…

  • 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.…

  • The Family in Akranes and Ísafjörður

    The Family in Akranes and Ísafjörður

    One of the things that you just can’t escape when you’re living abroad is, no matter how much you love the country, or how great a group of friends you have – you will miss your family. And that’s why it was so nice to meet up with aunts and uncles recently in Akranes and…

  • Iceland The jewel in the crown Snæfellsnes

    The jewel in the crown: Snæfellsnes

    Snæfellsnes is one of my favourite places in Iceland. Last year I spent almost two weeks there and this summer I was keen to go back and see some new places there as well as some old favourites. Just a couple of hours from Reykjavík, Snæfellsnes is easily doable as a day trip but as I…

  • 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 West again – Road tripping in the Westfjords, Iceland

    West again – Road tripping in the Westfjords, Iceland

    After leaving Ka at the airport (and conveniently collecting two friends who arrived just as he was leaving) I headed north again. It was a bit late in the day to go right into the Westfjords so I decided to find a place to camp near Eiríksstaðir, the site of Eiríkur Rauður’s farm and birthplace…
