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.

Belfast before Brexit

A last tour in Belfast before things will get more complicated. This city is a dense blend of history, culture and it just doesn’t look like that at first. Driving in town will first look “small” but the more you spend time, the more you need time to decrypts all symbols.

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.

Les companies qui desservent l’île de La Réunion

Cette petite prise de vue des différentes companies qui desservent La Réunion a été effectuée en Octobre 2018. L’idée c’est de clarifier d’où on peut décoller pour venir directement sur l’île, Combien de temps cela prend, avec quelle compagnie et les services minimums : – Baggages authorisés avec poids minimal, – Repas ? La Réunion est également accessible […]

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.

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.  

Blackrock Castle – Cork city

Let’s make a quick tour in the area of Cork, where a small but noticeable fortification has now been converted to an Observatory. Ideally reached with a bicycle, this castle has a restaurant as well and the coastal walk is actually beautiful.

Lowveld View – The green African Colorado

Here is a breath taking view of a green canyon. Located in the Mpumalanga, the Blyderiver has patiently shaped this natural wonder for centuries. I also have to recommend the hole road across the natural reserve and other points of views. I could not do all of them as I drove there a day after […]

Lisbon Falls

On the Road in Mpumalanga, you can stop at the Lisbon Falls.  With 92 meters, they are certainly the highest waterfalls in South Africa. It was even more impressive after the cyclone.

Pilgrim’s Rest, Mpumalanga, South Africa

Before famous for its gold mines, Pilgrim’s Rest is now a charming and famous  touristic stop in Mpumalanga. It is particularly interesting to visit and understand how this yellow stone shaped this area and the country.
