Wild camping trip # 5, but without the wild camping this time. This time around we splashed out on a B&B, and it was amazing!!! There were pints. Many many pints. We left Clare at 10:30am on a bright Monday morning and ate road to […]
These wild camping trips are becoming a regular thing now with 4 trips under our belts .. and the fifth one only a few days away!!! The first trip was a real learning experience. My initial impression of the bike was that it felt wrong. […]
Another chance to get away on a wild camping trip presented itself, and it was an opportunity to not go wasted. I quickly loaded up the 500 and made tracks, this time travelling solo, and in a different direction too. The route was a bit […]
After all the talk of adventure riding, and planning and building the bike.. it was more than a little disappointing to have this Coronavirus scupper all our well laid plans. Over the past few weeks I’d been slowly toying with the idea of a more […]
So this all started out very innocent. I had some time off work, and I started looking at flights, not really expecting to find anything decent, because, well, just because. There’s not been a lot out there lately that caught my eye. But then, out […]
What a great idea. Soaking in a hot tub, with seaweed, right on the West coast of Ireland, looking out over the Atlantic ocean. Don’t take my word for it. Go do it. They move around a bit, just to keep you on your toes. […]
A very last minute trip to Thailand and Cambodia provided a welcome break from the dreary Irish winter. 30°C, no wind or rain, everyone smiling.. it was perfect !!! Found some time to get a ride in too :o)
Road trip time!! After spending a couple of days in Vancouver, attending the Fringe Fest on Granville Is. and basically getting my bearings and adjusting to local time, I flew to Calgary, picked up a one way car rental and set out with my cold […]
Road trip from Pisa, via Cinque Terre and Malcesine (Lake Garda), to Venice.
Some would say it’s a long way to go, but then some have never had Murphy’s ice cream. So yeah. Fuck the haters. Take the boat to Tarbert. Drive to dingle. See Muckross and Torc Falls while you’re down there. Make a proper day of […]
Roadtripping around Japan. TooCo rentals at Nerima, transferring trains at Hamamutsho, bowing at temples in Kyoto, traditional Japanese BBQ in Fujikawaguchico, waay too many beers in Osaka, hiking at Tsumago, feeding feral deer in Nara. What an absolutely amazing place. The people are really friendly […]
Iceland had been on my list of must see places for years and so when the chance came I jumped at it with both feet. And how amazing was it?? It was out of this world, breathtaking, just WOW !!! Already I can’t wait to […]
Road tripping the North-West coast from Belfast around the Causeway Coast to Derry and all the way around auld Donegal, searching for the famed chicken ranches made famous by Goats Don’t Shave.
Roadtrip!! Took the GT86 to Scotland on a mission to find Nessie!! We searched all over Aviemore and the Cairngorms, all the way in Inverness and back.
This was just nuts. No other words for it. Spare tyres checked in and brought on the plane, bikes shipped in advance. Fork seals busted on day one. Magnums of Belvedere and Grey Goose every night. 500km stages through the Rif and High Atlas Mtns. […]
