The second year of the National Fleadh was coming to an end, and it was time to head away somewhere new. SAS were good enough to put on a twice a week service from Shannon to Stockholm and so it was decided.
Decided to go on a solo trip around Argentina. Starting and finishing in Buenos Aires, with a stop for a few days snow hiking in Patagonia, El Calafate & Chalten, Laguna de los Tres. And a stop for a few days in the sweltering heat […]
Berlin is such a cool city. It just fucking is.
A few days in Rome followed by a few more days in Copenhagen. Was interesting to try out, but if we’re squeezing two destinations into the one holiday in future, I think we need an extra couple of days. It was fairly hectic. A lot […]
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.
Perhaps it’s a bit late in the season, but a trip to Italy is always nice. To Aprica this time, and the thermal spa at Bormio, again, obviously !!! Battering an old rental ‘Firefly’ Fiat Punto up the hills, in dodgy-as-fuck snowchains. Being the only […]
Taking a guided tour of the Andalucia Mountains with Riders of the Lost Trail. Based out of Cortes de la Frontera, Phil has a fleet of new KTM EXC350s that are well maintained and start on the button. These bikes were light years ahead of […]
September 2012 lap of Europe. I headed East for as far as I could without overdoing it on the mileage. 200 – 300km per day, sometimes more, but usually less. Got as far as Ljubljana before I had to start back west again. Covered around […]
Few trips to NYC / Boston in 2011 & 2012 No one had heard of these new GoPro cameras back then, but I thought they were great. Was only disappointed that my first one sunk.. that’s how I learned they don’t float.
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. […]
