Here are just a few of … [Read more...]

What I Learned Writing a Travel eBook

I never thought that writing an eBook was going to be easy, however, I had no idea it would be so difficult. My travel eBook is a guidebook for the Camino de Santiago, the main route called the Camino Frances or the French Way. My book is now finished and self published on Amazon. I feel great relief at finishing, at some points along the way I wondered if I ever would. The book amounts to just … [Read more...]

What I like About Living in Prague

So I wrote a post about what I miss about Ireland and to even things up I thought this post would be a good idea as I decided to make the move and live here. Living as an Expat can be difficult; there were many problems that arose that I never considered before moving. One of the problems with this is that it can colour everything else, so if you’re having a bad day, week, or even month it is … [Read more...]

Terezin Holocaust Concentration Camp

I wanted to visit Terezin the holocaust concentration camp, about 60km north of Prague Czech Republic. I don't know why I wanted to go.

Jokes were not made on this subject, unlike home were it was fairly common. So I drove out of … [Read more...]

What I Miss About Living in Dublin Ireland

While we lived in Ireland it always felt temporary, we thought at some point we would be moving to the Czech Republic. I was never much good at living with the temporary lifestyle and consequently always wanted to move quicker than what was sensible. Ireland was so temporary that I ended up living there for 16 years… So anyway we moved. And it took a year before I started talking about what … [Read more...]

Liberec Some Things to See and Do

You might end up in Liberec by accident, or maybe you are in the area and curious, like we were driving back from a weekend in the mountains that run along the border between the Czech Republic and Poland. But I wouldn't go out of my way to head there for the day or for sightseeing – it is not a pretty city, though it has a comfortable feel and it’s nice to sit in the main square and have a coffee … [Read more...]

Summer in the Czech Republic

So I am heading into my last month here in the Czech Republic and looking forward to going back to Dublin. I have enjoyed myself, but as usual have got a lot less done than expected at the start of the summer. We arrived here in the middle of April and it was freezing, I didn't expect that, I just thought it would be a few degrees warmer than Dublin. During the first month I was building fires … [Read more...]
