    There are so many options for things to do in Morocco it’s hard to decide where to start. Here is a list of my top 5 unmissable things to do in Morocco. Camp in the desert   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Morocco | Desert | Sahara (@desertcamping) on Mar…

  • 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 - Santiago to Finesterre

    The Camino de Santiago: Santiago to Finisterre

    Santiago can feel strangely commercialised after being on the road for so long. A plethora of souvenir shops fill the old, narrow streets, hawking everything than can be covered in yellow arrows or shells. Still, I enjoyed a few days of doing very little and wandering the beautiful city, filling time between meals by taking…

  • 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,…

  • 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…

  • The Camino de Santiago - Logroño to Burgos

    The Camino de Santiago: Logroño to Burgos

    The next stretch out of Logroño on the way to Burgos, according to the guidebook, was 31km uphill and I decided to split it into two, stopping first at Navarrete, a cute little town and then at Nájera, a historic old town set against a warm red cliff. I was surprised that the inclines weren’t…

  • The Camino de Santiago - Pamplona to Logroño

    The Camino de Santiago: Pamplona to Logroño

    Having really enjoyed experiencing Pamplona I decided to rethink my Camino strategy. My tendons, now plural, still were sore, a bit improved but I’ve had enough experience with tendon problems to not want to create a longer-lasting situation. And more, I liked seeing where I was, I was finally starting to enjoy the experience rather…

  • 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.
