Posted on 28. Sep, 2012 by .


Think remote. Isolated. Raw. Untouched. Got it? Now make it even more remote. THAT’s the Aran Islands. To me anyway. Considering how fond I am of big cities, I may slightly exaggerate. But in this day and age of fast development and globalization, the Aran Islands seem to have resisted this urge to evolve - they [...]

Three days in Edinburgh

Posted on 26. Sep, 2012 by .


I fell in love with Edinburgh three years ago, on my first visit. I think that when you fall in love with a place when it’s incredibly wet, when it blends in all the different shades of gray, when it’s at its most unwelcoming, it’s probably going to be a long lasting love story. If [...]

Ahh, the beautiful Cliffs of Moher. The most interesting stop on the 3rd day of my Ireland roadtrip! Also known to The Princess Bride fans as the Cliffs of Insanity. Yes, I will take any occasion I get to plug my love for that movie. “- You seem a decent fellow, I’d hate to kill [...]

The Giant’s Causeway was something I had always seen on desktop wallpapers, or in one of the BBC famous travel videos. I never thought I would actually get to see it for myself one day. But I did! The 6th day of my trip in Ireland with Shamrocker Tours was all about the dramatic coastline [...]

A weekend in Cantal - In Photos

Posted on 05. Sep, 2012 by .


To wrap up this series on my press trip in Cantal, I couldn’t think of a better solution than a photo essay. Not because I don’t have anything to say about Cantal. I do. In fact I always have something to say, about pretty much everything. Ask my husband! But somehow I feel like no words [...]

Getting the gift of the gab at Blarney Castle

Posted on 03. Sep, 2012 by .


I was always intrigued by the famous, mysterious stone of eloquence at Blarney Castle. Not that I need it, mind you. Trust me - I talk enough as it is. I think people secretly wish I would just shut the hell up every once in a while. I even asked my dad the other day, [...]
