Evening in Paros

After I wrote my post about traveling to Greece in 2012 earlier this week, I realized that I really don’t have very many pictures of Paros, my favorite corner of Greece on this blog. So here you go: eye candy for you. Hopefully these images will give you a sense of why I love the Read the Rest…

Would You Go To Greece in Summer 2012?

I was talking to a co-worker about vacation destinations recently. The conversation went something like this: Him: “Yes, we had a really great time in Hawaii. My wife and kids loved it. I think we should try something similar but outside the U.S. next time.” Me: “You should go to Greece. The Greek Islands are Read the Rest…

Beach Cafe Kizkalesi Turkey

Towards the end of our year-long trip, our kids were becoming very road-weary. Even though our original goal had been to follow the Silk Road from Xi’an to Istanbul within a day of crossing into Turkey I knew they were just spent. We could have taken an overnight bus from Diyarbakir to Istanbul, done a Read the Rest…

Lunch At Morans At The Weir

You’d have to be a very dippy travel writer to have lunch at a great little restaurant and completely forget to take a single photo of the excellent seafood served. Very dippy. So I guess I am. Or maybe it was because when we detoured to stop at Morans At The Weir in Kilcolgan on Read the Rest…

Galway City Museum

When I heard that there was a new museum focusing on the history of Galway City, I was eager to visit. The location of the museum, which you get to by walking through Spanish Arch – part of the original city walls built in the 1550s – could not be better for two reasons: firstly, Read the Rest…

Serving Your Own Guinness

In case you haven’t guessed it by reading my posts on our trip to Ireland, the Emerald Isle can be a quirky place which you need a sense of humor to enjoy. Today’s example: we were a group of six adults and seven children (three to thirteen) looking for a decent, affordable, family-friendly restaurant in Read the Rest…

Connemara Secrets

I’m a sucker for stories of strong women in history particularly if the story involves a strong woman who was able to succeed in a man’s world long before the rights and privileges afforded to most women today (in the developed world at least) were available. Granuaile was such a woman. A pirate captain who Read the Rest…

Renvyle House Hotel Connemara

I was blown in the door of the Renvyle House Hotel by gale force winds and almost immediately tripped over two preschoolers playing tag in the lobby. I had to step quickly out of the way and only took a brief look at the surroundings before checking in. I’d been reading about the history of Read the Rest…
