The Lazy Fair
I think it was the only night I had a full eight hours of sleep, but I carried a vague sense of exhaustion anyway from the B&B up in Beaumont down the bus route to the city center. I thought I'd explore the dockland area near the mouth of the Liffey, an are...

But sometimes you just need to exist
To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all. - Oscar Wilde I had originally intended to take my time driving from the sea-bound hills of Malin Head to the sprawling town of Dublin for the last leg of my trip, but I was feeling a...

The Wrong Side of Everything

bagged the idea of taking a long, slow route to my next destination,
Portrush, Northern Ireland from Dublin. In hindsight, I am glad I did this. I was driving pretty slowly in two way traffic,...

Walking Northern Ireland
I haven't been able to post any pics from Ireland for a lack of a decent internet connection at my hotel. I have skipped my first two days to show the pretty ones from my 10 mile walk from Portrush to the Giant's Causeway along the coast. I'll post the othe...
