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
Petřín Tower is very compact, and it’s pretty easy to take the stairs to the top and back . If the weather is clear you can see the whole Prague underneath. And the view is definitely worth it. Petřín Tower is famous for it’s resemblance with the Eiffel Tower, but it definitely has it's own character. [...]

Even though I’ve been to Cliffs of Moher a couple of times in the past, I never went to O’Brien’s Tower for some reason. It’s just when you enter the gates you can climb left and right and I always chose the left path. I goes far away, you can climb over the fence there and sit on the edge of the cliffs thinking of eternity.
The right path is not so long, it ends on top of the cliff where the round tower stands. This time we actually went there, even though it was incredibly windy. There is a small souvenir shop inside the tower by the way and you can climb it to the top to see the cliffs and the ocean beneath.
Even if you visit Cliffs of Moher in summer the first thing to remember would be the wind, it’s insane there, it might literally blow you off your feet, so take a scarf and a windproof jacket!
If you go to the left side you will face a border pretty soon, but no one actually stops there, you can climb the fence and continue walking without the wall separating you from the view. Not if you are afraid of heights ofc ) The cliffs reach their maximum height of 214 metres and this is a breathtaking view I must say.
It was always hard for me to take photos of the Cliffs for some reason. I never liked the photos and I don’t think I ever posted them, even though I’ve been to Cliffs of Moher quite a few times in the past.
This was one of the better attempts, but I am still not entirely satisfied ) The weather was very good, that helped.
