County Donegal: 3 days trip

Time to hit the road again for a small escape to county Donegal.

After our summer holiday exploring the Wild Atlantic Way in counties Kerry, Clare and Mayo we decided to once again go to Donegal, a place that’s very special to me and that I truly love. Ireland is without any doubt a beautiful country with plenty of beautiful places to visit, but the coastal route is undoubtedly superb. The dramatic and gorgeous landscape that changes so often, the mysticism and the fact that time seems to have stopped never stops amazing me. Donegal is one of those singular places where I feel happy but at the same time it brings a bittersweet feeling when it’s time to return home as I really don’t want to departure. Well, at least it’s only 2h30m away and I can return whenever I want.

Outstanding places in Northern Ireland

Since I’ve moved to Northern Ireland I’ve been exploring this striking place. A lot of people ask me why I chose Northern Ireland to live. I really don’t understand why so many people ask me this question as I believe many of them don’t value what they have. What I can tell you is that one of the reasons why I’m still here is because of the absolutely stunning landscapes and incredible places I’ve discovered in my adventures in this lovely country (let alone some amazing people who have crossed my path). So, let’s see if I can show you the beauty through my eyes. Continue reading

What to do in Los Angeles

LA is probably in a lot of people’s dreams, but this time our destination wasn’t to fulfil my dream but my son’s dream. Since a very young age he has always aspired and dreamt about the US, so this year as he was 18 years old and we don’t know for how long he is still going on holiday with us we decided to make is dream come true. At the same time, I can’t deny that I was also glad as we all fantasise about the glamour, the movies’ scenery, actors and actresses that so many times entertained us…

I was a little bit concerned about the duration of the flight as I had never went on such a long journey before. Fortunately, we had a direct flight from Dublin to LA even though it took more than 10 hours, but I managed to have some sleep and I kept myself entertained reading and watching movies.
