See you soon, Rome!

In my last post I left you some thoughts about my little holiday in Rome. In the first place, why Rome? And why now? (I would never go to Italy in full summer – because of the heat and touristic season) Mr J and I were in a pub on his birthday last January, and…

Roman roamings

Two weeks ago (already?!), Mr J and I went to Rome, where we spent 5 days. We found this B&B at Piramide, about a 20 minutes walk from the Colosseum. The room was on the terrace of an apartment on the 9th floor, with direct access to a nice little terrace bordered with jasmine plants,…

Once Upon an October

October highlight was the trip to Prague! My friend Rosy (travelling from Rome) and I met at our holiday destination for the Halloween Bank Holiday weekend.

Travelling with new friends

Last month I spent a weekend in Amsterdam with two new friends of mine. “New friends” in this case means two girls I met by chance in Galway last January, with whom I kept in touch. They came back visiting recently, and asked me if I wanted to join them in their trip to the…

When I started travelling

I remember when I first started travelling. I remember going abroad for the first time when I was at high school. A beautiful trip to Greece. I remember being shocked when I started seeing with my own eyes what I had always known only thanks to my books and tv. My parents have never been…
