A travel blog of Ireland, Europe, and now, New Zealand

This website serves a number of purposes. Most immediately, it will record our time in Ireland, from April 2014 to March 2017 – see The Blog menu above for more-or-less regular updates on living in and travelling through Ireland and other parts of Europe and, from 2021, around New Zealand. Secondly, there is Pip’s page which was originally used as part of her consultancy work. It is now mostly concerned with recording her publications and presentations. Thirdly there is a page of notes about our time away, items that we want to remember without them necessarily being blog material. These are recorded under Other and although they are available to any viewer, they are mostly just personal jottings unlikely to be of interest to anyone other than family. Fourthly there is a page with a few archive photos from our European trip of 2011.

The banner photo of the River Liffey and Ha’penny Bridge was taken on 4 December 2015.
