St. Patrick’s day parade in Cork 2012
The weather was remarkably good this morning. The sun was shining, loads of people went out on the streets dressed in green, there were children eveywhere waving Irish flags, farmer’s market was up and running on Grand parade. I just love St.Patrick’s day! [...]
Germany – Czech Republic car trip 2011
That was an incredible road trip. We got a car in Munich, went to Prague for 2 days, returned to Germany and drove round for 4 days, stayed in small hotels and tried local food on the way. We ended up in Prien am Chiemsee in the end. Read more for all posts and photos from that trip. [...]
Prague from the Petřín Lookout Tower

I was sorting out my photos yesterday and found out that I took quiet a few pictures of the boats in Castletownbere. I haven’t seen a lot of real fisherman boats before I came to Ireland, and for me it’s just amazing that there is this town that lives from the fisherman business, and everything there is somehow connected to it.
Bere Island (Oiléan Béarra) is a very small island on the south-west coast. There are not many people living there, and the island is mostly covered by sheep and grass. Sheep are totally wild there, I think they only see the human form when they get a haircut.
Castetownbere is a small fisherman town, there is a ferry going to the island every few hours. Once we were in Kinsale which is famous for it’s fish, and found out in one restaurant, that they get their fish from Castetownbere.
