When you talk about the things you could do in Kerry it’s impossible not to mention the Dingle and Iveragh Peninsulas. Although most of you probably know the Iveragh Peninsula by the tourist road that surrounds it, the Ring of Kerry. Their notoriety as tourist attractions is well-known and in my mind rightly deserved haven experienced them myself. The Dingle Peninsula’s two big attractions outside of the town that bears […]

Moving To London
Moving to London was more daunting than any other move I’d ever undertaking in my life. Before I’d move to study or relocate to the city because it’s just what you do. But moving 2 hours drive from home or even another state in Australia is nothing compared to moving to London, one the biggest international cities around on the other side of the world. In the interest of helping […]Read More...

Anzac Day at Gallipoli, Turkey
Anzac Day… one of the most solemn days for any Australian or New Zealander as we stop to remember our fallen soldiers at Gallipoli in Turkey during the First World War.

Bank Accounts and National Insurance Numbers
Before I planned my big moving to London adventure I was concerned about all the paperwork I’d have to fill out just to work here. Bank Accounts I understood, but the National Insurance Number seemed completely foreign to me. The National Insurance Number (think Tax File Number Australians) is required by your employer and while used for tax purposes it also gets you access to free health services should you […]Read More...
Things To Do In Kerry
Healy Pass is perhaps my favourite road from my two-week road trip in Ireland. It’s not for driving it, but for looking back as it snakes it way across the Ring of Beara in West Cork. The lookout spot is the perfect place to stop and enjoy the view if there is a parking spot free. Parking is limited to 5-6 spots at the lookout next to the small shop […]

The UE Boom Speaker
As someone who travels a lot, living abroad for months at a time in different places I’m not lucky enough to have all the creature comforts a home normally has.

But one thing I can finally say I have […]

Ladies View – Ring Of Kerry
The Ladies View lookout is part of the Ring of Kerry and can be found between Killarney and Kenmare on the N71. On a nice day its a great stop off spot to take in the view and just enjoy how damn beautiful Ireland is. I will say however getting to the ladies view lookout is somewhat of an experience with tour buses also using this narrow stretch of road. […]
