Goodbye Ireland

In a few hours I board a plane for Stockholm to begin a new chapter of my trip. After 18 days in Ireland, I find it hard to leave. The people, the scenery, and the pubs have been more than outstanding. I will probably break my legs and my budget coming back here again real […]

I didn’t know if I should be angry or laugh my butt off. One of my 7 new roomates at Sheila’s hostel, a large full facility hostel across the river, had just managed to somehow find his way home after 03:00am. I was sleeping in a top bunk near the door, so before he even […]

It is confirmed: Temple Bar is an international circus on Saturday nights. Much like Khao San Road in Bangkok. Huge rugby teams rove about in their jerseys looking for trouble, women wiggle by like penguins in tiny miniskirts freezing hidden parts, mimes put on street shows, horses pull carriages, a multitude of English “hen” parties […]

Shooting accident?

How the tiny beep beep of my watch woke me up I will never know. I knew it probably wasn’t a good idea to stay out until 07:00am this morning, but I did it anyway. My hidden adventure lobe in my brain was able to beat into submission the jetlag, my logic, and good sense […]
