La Bella Sicilia! [Video]

I love Sicily. It’s such an incredibly beautiful place. Don’t believe me? Check out the video below which was produced by a travel agency in the UK: Sicily has an incredibly rich and interesting history. Pretty much every civilisation that passed through Europe made their mark on Sicily and you can see that in the […]

A Quiet Haven In Shanagarry

Yesterday afternoon after being nearly blown away by the winds on Garryvoe beach, we stopped by at the Kilkenny shop in Shanagarry. If you like Irish design, then you’d probably enjoy the shop.

Overdosing On Jamón

I’ve been in Spain this week at a couple of events. One of the things I love about Spain is the food. No matter where you go it’s always pretty good and in many cases it’s out of this world. Of the various things that you can eat in Spain my favourite is jamón. Ham. Jamón […]

Thatcher Lives On .. In Madrid

Streets, squares and other public venues get named after famous people and events all the time. But it’s a bit odd to discover that there’s a square in the centre of Madrid bearing the name of Margaret Thatcher. It’s bizarre, but it’s true: Apparently the square was named after Thatcher last year. I’ve no idea […]
