Mauritius & Reunion
Mauritius is almsot entirely surrounded by a reef with waves breaking far offshore. This cove is on of the few breaks where waves reach the shore.

Mauritius & Reunion

I got married in October 2022 and my partner and I travelled to Mauritius and then Reunion for our Honeymoon. I didn't take many photos as it was mainly a relaxing, chill by the beach type of holiday. However we did explore the southern part of Mauritius and take a helicopter flight over the cirques and volcano in Reunion.

The Balkans

On returning from Uzbekistan I realised I had a load of leave to use before the end of June otherwise I'd lose it. So after a quick search of places to go I opted for a trip to the Balkans - mainly North Macedonia with a small bit of Bulgaria and Kosovo through in for good measure. It was a tough trip in many respects with a lot of driving and single night stays in each location, but the landscape and many UNESCO sites were interesting to see. However it was frustrating…

Ring of Kerry, Ireland

Wanting to get away for a Christmas break we drove to West Ireland and travelled down part of the Wild Atlantic Way to Killarney. From here there's a great drive called the Ring of Kerry which passes through some stunning scenery. We did the whole ring in one (very long) day, but I'd recommend doing it over a couple of days and taking your time to explore the landscape!

Donegal, Ireland

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!
