Flashback : Across Ireland

  A short mash up of some pictures and shaky images taken during my trip through Ireland with my friends Guillaume & Mary. The video spans from our first moments in Dublin to our final goal; Giant’s Causeway.

Sixteen hours in London, UK

Hard to visit one of the world’s fashion, finance and culture capital in 16 hours especially when most of that time will be spent traveling, packing, getting lost and sleeping. In the end, London is gorgeous, pretty busy at night in the right districts yet everything is closed past midnight. Big Ben is awesome but…

Glasgow, UK

Glasgow is a city that is beautiful to look at. However, due to poor planning, a lot of time was spent on other things than exploring it. For the poor traveler it is however a great destination as for much of it’s prices are like the UK (reasonably expensive) it has a load of free…

Loch Ness, UK

We arrived in Scotland at close to midnight in a small coastal town called Cairnryan next to the eponymous loch. The harbour was dark, empty and far from anything else. We met a nice guy from Brazil that one of us met before, that rendered hitching a ride next to impossible. Decided we walked on…

Clochán an Aifir, UK

In Gaelic ou “La chaussée des géants” en Français, is the name given to the world heritage site located on the northern tip of the island of Ireland. Composed of over forty thousand basalt blocks over thousands and thousands of years old. The blocks interlock as steps and create what the olde folk named the…

Getting to the Causeway, UK

The road to the causeway is a bumpy one. Our trip in Leprechaun land all started in Dublin. It took us to beautiful Cork, along the east coast, then to Galway. Shortly after did we take on the west coast, then Letterfrack and the Connemara park. Back to Galway to go back to Dublin and…

Dead children, Diamond Hill & Roxie the rockstar dog

We had met in Galway a French couple and two nice French girls. We chatted and drank the evening away. After some classic hostel bounding we elaborated a masterplan for the next day. Interesting day. We took a tour bus with Healey tours to Connemara park but asked them to drop us midparkour in Letterfrack….

Dublin’s Botanical Garden & Irish food

The most of us think that when you are travelling everyday will be a 7am to midnight day. Wrong. Sometimes it’s good to get up late and appreciate the day without jetlag. Another day spent walking around in Dublin, getting in fancy two stories buses and all the European classics never had the chance to…

Walking in Dublin, Ireland

A small one hour walk lets me clear my mind and pop a nice hdr picture of dusky Dublin. My head rested, I realize I posted 3 times in a quite long and busy day.  A pint of tasty O’hara’s stout, alone at the bar of the very trendy “Generator” hostel, I post my hdr…

A pint of Guinness in Ireland

Obviously, Dublin and a little time implies a Guinness at the end of the day. Buuuut when everyone’s tired and jetlag, add on top moodyness and overpriced Guinness, it does impair the fun a tad. Let’s see how a sandwich and a walk around Dublin improves my mood and lets me sleep. 🙂

Arrival in Dublin, Ireland

Dublin sure is a pretty sight for sore eyes. Just a shame I had to waste an hour at the post office to ship a bag of clothes to my friend in Germany. Needed to hunt for a box in downtown Dublin as, you see, they don’t ship big bags. Taped the empty bag on…
