Random tour in the South

So I basically took the car and went in Glendalough, Cahir, Cashel and Kilkenny. Here are a couple of photos to illustrate how nice this idea was 🙂

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.

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!

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.

Paris – Un doux hiver

Between clouds and sunny spell, let walk around and discover some of the typical views from Paris.

Toulouse – France

The pink city is famous for the aeronautic industry but if you spend more time in its centre, you may love the architecture, art, and night walk along the crowded quays after a warm day,

Autumn in Paris

Charming, elegant, and as usual full of little secrets. Paris Ooh la la.

Lac du Neuweiher – Alsace – France

Settled in the heart of the Vosges, a little artificial lake was built near the edge of the mature mountain of Alsace. The Neuweiher’s lake offers a charming view when you rest from one of these multiple beautiful local hikes.
