The peninsula, which is nearly an island, is connected to the mainland by a narrow strip of land. Cross the sky-high bridge and wander…
Road trip to Copper Coast
If the Wild Atlantic Way coast in Ireland is the well-known longest coastal route, there’s a best-kept secret route in Waterford known as the Copper Coast.

The Gougane Barra Forest Park
Gougane Barra is best known for the picturesque view of a small church that lies on an island of its own, reflecting like a mirror in the lake.

Throwback: Boracay 2013
Whenever I mentioned I’ve been to Boracay, the first question was: ‘Did you party a lot?’. Apparently, Boracay is the Philippines’ party destination, but I was blissfully unaware of that (until I got there). As the saying goes, “What happens in Boracay stays in Boracay!”
Adventure in Nusa Penida
Nusa Penida is a relatively undeveloped island south-east of mainland Bali. In fact, Nusa Penida is part of Nusa Islands often wrongly thought of as being part of Bali.
