After being stuck at home due to the Covid pandemic, this long weekend getaway from Dublin to County Donegal was very welcome. The scenery there is stunning – from large coastal cliffs to the beautiful Glenveagh National Park. Although I only had a short time there its definitely somewhere I want to return to and spend a little longer exploring!
I’ve wanted to visit Sweden for along time. Strangely despite my travels, Scandinavia is one area I’d not really got to. So I was more than please to spend a long weekend visiting Stockholm. I loved the city and will definitely be back, but also want to explore the region further. Just need to find the time now!
Sudan, a country with more pyramids than Egypt but which few people travel to. The country is full of amazingly well-preserved sandstone temples, tombs engraved with images of the pharaohs and pyramids, including the stunning Royal Necropolis of Meroe. At times this trip felt like you were a Victorian era explorer, cresting a dune to find a temple complex in-front of you and feeling like you were the first to discover it!
The Faroe Islands, part of Denmark and situated halfway between Norway and Iceland, are becoming very popular with photographers, mainly for their remoteness, towering cliffs, fjords and waterfalls. In October 2017 I visited for 3 days and now I’m hooked and definitely want to go back!

Before I moved to Ireland permanently I spent a few days visiting Galway. A harbour city on Ireland’s west coast, it sits where the River Corrib meets the Atlantic Ocean. The city’s hub is 18th-century Eyre Square, a popular meeting spot surrounded by shops and traditional pubs, often with the sound of live Irish folk music drifting out from their doors.
