I start getting into the Christmas spirit pretty much the second Halloween is over. With a trip to Christmas markets in a European city on the horizon. I’m heading away in the first week of December I am really getting into the Christmas mood! Christmas markets have such a magical aura about them. The lights,…Continue Reading “Irelands Best Christmas Markets”

Things To Do In Adare

I suppose it’s just because of pure familiarity but you always seem to neglect the amazing things you can do in your hometown. Now, I’m not actually from Adare but I’m not from too far away.

Botanic Gardens & Glasnevin Cemetery

Something I have been meaning to do since I moved to Dublin was go to the National Botanic Garden and visit Glasnevin Cemetry.

This is a great (free!) way to spend a…Continue Reading “National Botanic Gardens & Glasnevin Cemetery”

It’s not that often that I go to the same place more than once (shoutout to Split and Vegas for making that extremely small list of mine!) but one place I have been going year after year is Electric Picnic.

I visited here with my friends and while…Continue Reading “Discovering Barcelona”

My first festival was Ultra Europe in Croatia in 2014 and the last I attended was Electric Daisy Carnival in London last year (which has…Continue Reading “Five Festival Tips This Summer!”

Travel Diary

Call me old fashioned but give me a pen and paper over typing on a computer any day. (hypocritical I know, since I am literally writing something on a computer right now). I’m not sure why I like it exactly. Just seeing my thoughts written in my own hand writing from whenever I wrote it just…Continue Reading “The Beauty Of Keeping A Travel Diary”
