2017

The house of Father Ted

As a fan of the TV show, it is difficult to drive in county Clare and miss this famous house. If you have more time I also suggest to spare some time in Kilfenora. Between the Vaughan’s Pub and the lovely people from the surrounding accommodation, this will definitely be a good refreshing time.

Seasons greetings from Cork

Busy between the school Choirs and gifts hunting, I can now wish you: Bonne Fete Caf Happy pub crawling Happy Christmas, and so on … May the end of the year be enjoyable And please spare a tree: be more creative than this 🙂

The Beara Peninsula

The the west of county Cork, the Beara Peninsula will charm you with its view, people and quiet surroundings. I can just remember how relax I was by just thinking about it.

Amsterdam, culture and snow

For a couple of hour or a couple of days, this city is definitely worse the visit. A train takes 15 min from the airport and leave nearly every 5 min.

The Samson crane barge at Ardmore in the County of Waterford

In 1987, off the coast of Waterford, pushed by the Gael, a massive crane barge from Liverpool crashed along the cliffs. Dangerous pollutants were removed soon after the barge went aground and the 2 men aboard were rescued so naturally, instead of removing the remains, why wouldn’t we make history? I suppose we have more to follow […]

In this charming Haut-Rhin

Childhood or not, Alsace is one of the best compromise in Europe, Celte, Germanic, French and most of central in Europe. Alsace is rich in history.

Plants of Brittany

Can I invite you to crawl down a bit an see what we are usually stepping on when travelling in Brittany. I should do more of these, they are little treasures.

Costal views from Brittany

It’s like a postcard from these sunny places with untouched beaches and surrounding. It’s because it is sometimes too cold … 🙂

… and a night in Lyon

Lucky enough to walk in Lyon the nigh before the Light festival, may I share here what you can expect (without fighting the crowd)

Lyon, a day …

Lyon in France would be like Cork in Ireland: a second capital … right …. Spending the day there is a very good idea. The city is walkable but massive as well. There will be more to follow soon 🙂

Koln, when the night comes

Koln (Cologne) made me laugh last time time I went there. Imagine a whole day of transports to reach the destination and the first place you see is a pub called the Corkonian. Anyway, if you have more time, the Cathedral is beautiful, the old town as well and carnival is a must do here!

Paris and around

View from above and from the heart, here are some souvenirs of a quick tour on a 14th of July.

Streets of Cork

Cork has a vibe. Between the remains of this ageing harbour and the attempts to keep it as a cultural hotspot, the life in this town suddenly becomes timeless.

Johannesburg … shortly

I was driving most of the time and had other excuses to just bring these photos back. There is a bit of everything from this world here really: between slums and luxury, modern skyscrapers and history … I take this as a humbling experience.

Between Limpopo and Mpumalanga

Huge, beautiful and diverse. Also between villages, townships, shops along the road and massive farms, you will have a lot to see and experience.  

A last set of snaps from Kruger park

I made more photos from the Kruger Park but will now move on to other places in South Africa after this last ones. Leaving this experience, I believe there is here a hard compromise between tourism and nature. I still smile when I think about the ways camps are surrounded by fences: I felt like […]

Cork, sky, streets and river

I have found these view from Cork sad, dark, but also joyful and restful.
