The round up of a very epic weekend in Kenosha at a gorgeous lakeside property on the shores of Lake Michigan. This would be our 4th EVE event and this time it is to meet up with all the American gamers – none of the Canadians made it, which is unfortunate. But we still had an awesome weekend and I would do it all over again if I could.

It was only a matter of time until this trip had to happen. I mean, we are as far west as we can go in Europe, we can almost smell America from here. Super excited about this trip as it will be my first ever visit state-side, and R. will be able to do his thing and meet up with more EVE buddies along the way. Trip is still in the planning stages, so here is where we are at for now.

So, looks like 2016 has arrived and I have been missing from the blogoshpere for almost a year. Wow, where did time go? What have I been up to? Well in a pinch, I have been adjusting to new life in Ireland and to the new job, new house, pretty much new everything. Then the parents came for a visit and so it was a pretty packed few months to say the least. Here is a snippet of what we got up to during my hiatus. It’s good to be back tho.

Final day of travelling for us and it is going to be a loooong one. Another one of those long distance drives done in a single day. It will be the last part of my three part series documenting our journey across five countries to eventually end up in Ireland.

As with all my travels, food plays a huge role and I always make it a point to sample the local specialties. Here we were in Cornwall for about three weeks and it gave us a nice time frame to sample a wide variety of things … all of them good eats, from the local pub meals to chippy fare. I even ate some tinned stuff from the supermarket … yeah, it’s that kinda holiday.

Welcome back to Part II of my Cornish adventures. It is now week two and we are still feeling pretty lucky to be visiting this part of the British isles. This week sees us taking in more of the sights along the coast to the south and north of Perranporth, and a couple of sights inland towards Truro and county Devon. Have been indulging in cheap (but gooooood!) eats, and this week also sees me and R. going a bit mental in TESCO like we never dreamed we would. Ahhh … the joys of moving back to good ‘ol Anglo-Saxon creature comforts.

So R. and I are off on another trip, this time to the southwest of England. This trip is only the first half of our real destination, which is Ireland. Three weeks of R&R and then life will start to get serious again, so we better make the most of this one. Am writing this article now as I sit in our rented house on the coast facing the Celtic sea, facing Ireland … our new home.

Croatia has been truly amazing. The food is cheap, the coffee is spot on, and the sights are worthy of every single UNESCO endorsement ever given. Being so close to the border, we chose to visit other countries next door during our short stay in Zagreb. Zagreb is pretty empty anyway in the summer months.

From Reykjavic to Vik, these cities have lots to offer the newbie traveller in just a few short hours. Rent a car and take in some of the amazing views all within the day, from Gullfoss to the Eyjafjallajökull volcano. Unpolluted, unspoilt landscapes, stunning waterfalls and almost 24 hrs of daylight to see it all in.
