Howth Cliff Walk – a perfect walk on the Northside of Dublin

One of the more popular walks in Ireland and a great practice for a Camino, a few kilometres from Dublin City Centre. Sure what more could you ask for? I happened to have some time to hand this morning and decided to go along and visit the area. I wanted to bring my new DSLR […]

Just a few last things to do..

The bag is packed, I’m ready to go………ok! enough of the singing! The neighbours will start to complain. But I am pretty much ready. I bought a new Samsung phone charger cable, walking trousers and a few items to restock my first aid kit during the week. So I am set. And forgive me if […]

A few more items bought…

Today was fun, all Camino related. I spent the morning in Dublin city centre at a Spanish class devouring the future tense (not something I am common with) before taking a trip to my favourite outdoor store to purchase last-minute Camino items. Thank you Christmas vouchers! 1 ) Columbia full zip fleece – I have […]
