Learn from our mistakes in Dublin

Since Dezz only got to experience 24-hours in Dublin on her previous go at the city we decided to do much better this time around. However that was the extent of our planning for Dublin. Contrary to our usual how-to and where-to format, herein is a list of our mistakes that you can now easily avoid. Allow yourself time to rest: We arrived late and were jet lagged … Continue reading Learn from our mistakes in Dublin

Which landscapes to see in Co. Donegal, Ireland

When visiting Ireland you should consider touring Co. Donegal. It was named #1 on the Cool List of 2017 by National Geographic Traveller. We were given many suggestions of places to visit in Donegal, such as Slieve League (a mountain on the Atlantic Ocean, with some of the highest cliffs in Ireland), or Donegal town, but we were too short on time to spend it on the road and … Continue reading Which landscapes to see in Co.

How to spend 10 full days in Ireland

At the end of November 2016, the opportunity to head to Ireland for New Year’s was put on our table. With a wedding coming up, working freelance, the holidays, and it being off season, rainy, and cold in Ireland this was obviously a bad choice, right? Wrong.

The fog was just lifting, the lake was still, and the … Continue reading A walk through Killarney National Park

Christmas in Sunnyside (and beers in other boroughs)

Like the Christmas tree still sitting in the living room at the time of writing the following text, this post is an overdue reminder of the time of year we spend time with those closest to us (or avoid them because it’s cheaper to fly to Ireland).  Having recently matured to the ripe age of 30, I can finally, publicly, and (almost) unabashedly admit that … Continue reading Christmas in Sunnyside (and beers in other boroughs)

What’s in our bag? – Ireland 2017

This gear has been acquired over years, and between two people. Photography is an expensive hobby/career, which makes traveling even harder. This trip to Ireland happened spontaneously about a month ago. Traveling around the holidays can be far from cost effective (we do it every year to see our family). This year, with a wedding coming up, we decided to save our money and stay … Continue reading What’s in our bag? – Ireland 2017
