By | June 4th, 2015|Italy, Video|

London to Venice by train? With no luggage? No luggage no problem?

Last week I bought [...]

By | March 10th, 2015|Ireland, Video, Videos|

The Slea Head Drive is a marvel.  As someone who loves a roadtrip, it was a tough choice between the Ring of Kerry and the Slea Head Drive when over in Ireland at the back end of last year, but owing to the season and a chance to stay over in Dingle, the Slea Head Drive [...]
