visit

Knowth and Newgrange

An eye opener! This is the only thing that came up to my mind after this visit. Even worse, this question: Human being knew a complex form of communication,  had an advanced knowledge of stars, calendar and meaning of life. Something happened between. 5200 years later we all end up with a rectangular piece of plastic […]

Mizen Head: the west of the west

One of the most extreme west end of Ireland, the peninsula would be very exposed to maritime elements. I paid the entrance for you (I know…) and let you appreciate the view. I personally found it over built and worse was to start a massive block of concrete and leaving it unfinished. Worse, it’s seem […]

Midleton is not only a good Whiskey

…. but let’s be honest, its famous for this. If you identify yourself as a fan of Jameson (yessss there are some) then come to this place and you will discover how all bottles of this brand sold on this planet are made. You will also learn what better brand you should also focus on… […]

Kinsale 2017

Some souvenirs from this colourful place on the south coast of County Cork.

Dublin and around

Did I ever mentioned that I am always happy to walk around this capital? I will leave here 21 pictures of my last trips there.

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 🙂

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.

Links to search for a mid to long term accommodation in Ireland

I’ve been suggested to translate this article in English as it has helped thousands to search up mid to long term accommodation already. Suggestion and preparation: Ireland is famous for its housing crisis. Let’s consider it as part of the culture. I recommend not to be too specific in your search terms as this drastically […]

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!
