So Long, Farewell

725 days after first arriving in Dublin to start my new life and a new adventure I am boarding a plane in search of my next adventure. For anyone familiar with my blog for some time I have been umming and ahhing about my life in Ireland and weather to leave for pastures new. Well…

The Sahara

Part 2 of our Moroccan Adventure (part one here: Morocco, Marrakech, Souks and Sunshine…). The next morning we were off for our desert adventure. We were collected from the Riad at 7am and taken to a meeting point where an hour or so later we started our journey. We headed across the Atlas Mountains towards…

Alternative Aussie Facts

Happy Australia Day! Today marks 230 years since Captain Cook landed in Australia, and many of my fellow Aussies are out celebrating the day. All politics aside I have some great memories of past Australia Days, and so to celebrate this year I thought I would put together my top 20 alternative Aussie facts! Former…

Morocco, Marrakech, Souks and Sunshine…

Morocco, the land of the Sahara desert, Atlas Mountains, Casablanca, Marrakech, souks and sunshine… For Christmas 2017 my friend, Guada, and I decided to escape the dreary cold and wet winter of Ireland and head south in search of sunshine and tan lines.

The Lull

It’s September 2017, I haven’t written in God knows how long and everytime I want to write I can’t find anything to inspire me.

My impulsive behaviour really can cause me a lot of trouble

After the whole tirade of moving house and not moving house I was left extremely low on funds, I had paid rent and deposit of over €1,000 at (the dirty) place and still had my deposit of €600 at my original place. On top of this I had a month’s rent due. I always try…

Family

This is a post from my mum’s blog, one of the great things about the 21st Century is our ability to keep in contact and share our lives with friends and family all over the world through the magic of Facebook, Snap Chat, Whats App and Word Press…. I can’t imagine how hard it would…
