EVE Fanfest 2017 – Iceland with Team Pizza

Our second visit to Iceland for CCP’s annual EVE Online Fanfest 2017. We return with more members of Team Pizza of Wormhole Space following our very successful first meet up in America the year before. We return to Iceland to find the place just as majestic and mysterious but ever more expensive to finance. Still had a good time tho.

Alaska – a wedding and an adventure out in the wild frontier.

ALASKA – the last frontier, the jewel of the north, the largest and the most sparsely inhabited US state … and I am going there this spring/summer. Why? Coz someone is getting married and I have been graciously asked to attend (woohoo!) and I said YES. All up we are spending a total of 14-days on this trip and I think it’s going to leave me a little broke but the experience we will get out of it will be priceless. Not many people get the chance or the opportunity to visit this land of mystery and grandeur so I am going to make the most of it.

Madrid, Spain : I snuck in on this one.

For all the years I have lived in Europe I have never been to Spain – too busy travelling in France over and over and over again. But this time I had the opportunity to follow the boyfriend on a business trip so I kinda snuck in on this one … heheh. I was not expecting much as I knew he would be busy attending sessions at the convention centre and I would probably spend a lot of time on my own but I was fine with that. Exploring a city like Madrid is easy as they have a very good metro network.

America – On the road for 30 days (Part III)

Wow, 30 days is almost up. We have already spent three weeks in America, two of those have been spent on the road visiting places and friends along the way, staying at random roadside motels and sometimes with obliging friends/family. Lakeside weekend with the EVE boys went really well and now we head east and north into Canada … our final leg of this holiday before turning back down south through New England and finishing up back in New York. It will be a sad day indeed when we have to leave all this behind but we will take with us many pictures (oh God to I have a lot of pictures!) and a whole lot more memories, ones which will be with me forever and ever. It has been one hell of a trip and I would do it all again in a heartbeat.

America – On the road for 30 days (Part II)

Arrived in Raleigh, North Carolina and had a wonderful time meeting new friends and chowing down on some serious Carolinian barbecue. After two days we are back on the road heading further west towards Nashville, Tennessee. But before we do we spend an entire day driving through Cherokee Indian Reservation and up into the Great Smoky Mountains – America’s favourite and most visited national park. Along the way there is a bit of drama and once in Nashville we have one of the best dinner experiences of the entire trip, all thanks to a guy we know as Ted.

America – On the road for 30 days (Part I)

Having spent 5 whole days soaking in the atmosphere of NYC we pick up our rental SUV and head south on a roadtrip through some of America’s most iconic national parks and visit some of the famous historic monuments. I travel with a food list and while on the road I am always on the look out for food that’s on that list so I can tick them off. From here we make a few overnight pit stops at roadside motels and finish off with a proper 2-night stay in an Airbnb rental in Raleigh, N.C.

I Heart America – Five days in New York

The journey began here … my maiden visit to the USA and it was everything I had hoped for and more. We spent a month driving around the northeast portion of the map and finished off in Canada to catch the leaves in all their autumnal glory. This trip has been amazing and I have definitely fallen in love with America, the land of the free.

Team Pizza Weekend – USA 2016

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.

UNITED STATES of AMERICA!!

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.

Christmas and New Year mash up : Ireland 2016

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.
