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. [...]

I really like Youghal, I like the smell of the ocean in the air, I like the seafood in the restaurants there and I like walking on the beach there. So when I knew that there will be a medieval festival in Youghal I definitely decided to go.
It was pretty great, the festival wasn’t too big around 20-30 tents with festival food, crafts and medieval ammunition. Some people were dressed in chainmails and medieval dresses, children were playing with bows and arrows and had a chance to paint up a personal shield for themselves.
There were some activities as well, people could learn more about archery and try to shoot the target, also there were guys dressed in armor talking about armor crafting. There were even guys who practiced the sword fighting. It was really fun, and the gardens where the festival took place, St. Mary’s college gardens, were really beautiful as well.
Suddenly found few pictures from one of our trips to Youghal in 2010. That time we took rubber boots (which we bought especially for this occasion) and walked along the shore in the water. Sounds a bit crazy, but it was actually really cool. I cant wait for the winter when the dawn is late so I could go there again when it’s dark and take pictures of the rising sun.

Youghal (Eochaill) is a small town in about an hour drive from Cork. I really like it and return there over an over again – huge beach, waves, smell of the seaweed in the air – this is a a real coastal town. Before going there you should check the tides forecast, if the tide is high there is no beach – only few benches to sit down.
