In the morning I had a late start. I went to Intersport, rented the trekking poles – so I don’t have to wait for the store to open next morning before heading to the trails – and dropped them off at the hotel. I won’t be needing them for this easy hike/walk.Continue reading “Gorges de la Diosaz, France”
Summer in the French Alps
Last month I completed Portuguese language A2 level. To celebrate, I made a quick trip to the French Alps. This was my second time in Chamonix – Many years ago I trekked the Tour du Mont Blanc (TMB) from France to Italy and Switzerland – it remains one of my favourite areas in the whole wide world.
The weather was perfect this time around, I did a lot of hiking with my favourite mountain in sight.Continue reading “Summer in the French Alps”
The whole time I was in Salzburg, the sky was overcast. It wasn’t until the day I was leaving the sun finally came out.

The Skellig Ring
Storm Francis landed on the coastal village of Waterville precisely at 2100 hour, according to forecast. Throughout the night, the wind roared, the ocean raged, the roof rattled, I slept like a baby.Continue reading “The Skellig Ring”
Ireland in July
July was a good month!
With the lifting of the travel ban across the island, we can finally move outside of our county.
The first place we went to was Glendalough in Wicklow National Park, for a breath of fresh mountain air.
Dublin in June
June 8th kicks off the phase two of Ireland reopening, and with that, we were able to travel anywhere within the county. This has opened up several hiking opportunities.
We couldn’t wait to get back to Howth, so that’s what we did on our first weekend after June 8th.
Where I was this time last year

Sunset in Dublin
It all really is ironic, isn’t it?
Even since we started working from home, the howling wind and lashing rain that we got so accustomed to on a daily basis ceased all of a sudden. Instead we had the most gorgeous weather yesterday. Birds chirping, flowers blossomming, while we were trapped indoors. Continue reading “Sunset in Dublin”
