You can walk all around the island. I didn’t have the time to do so, but tried a walk around the Southern tip and another one from Ballaglass to Ramsey.
This photo was taken near Ramsey.

South Cross, Clonmacnoise

Filed under: — laurenzb @ 5:06 am



South Cross, Clonmacnoise, originally uploaded by laurenz.

Its setting makes Clonmacnoise a very special photoopportunity.
However, the heritage Centre is also well worth a visit - the original, invaluable stone carvings from the monastery are preserved here and presented in an almost magical light.
The audiovisual about the history of Clonmacnoise is also quite interesting.

Karnak at night

Filed under: — site admin @ 7:36 am

Karnak at night
The temple of Karnak at night.
One of Luxor’s greatest attractions at day, this temple is really fascinating at night.
Like at other Egyptian sound and light shows, you will be guided through the complex in a large group and you’ll hear a recorded commentary.
The light show is much less advanced than the one at Abu Simbel, which means that it also is much more tasteful!
At the end, you are brought to a place where you can simply enjoy the view of the temples and the reflections in the pool.
Highly recommended.

Working Class Bear

Filed under: — site admin @ 5:53 pm

huge Teddy Bear sitting in an Internet cafe
This was maybe the most pleasant Internet cafe I visited in Ireland: A very nice atmosphere, someone playing on an acoustic guitar and, next to me, this huge bear was sitting on a stool, clutching his International Worker’s paper!
Oh, if you want to meet the bear himself, you have to go to Athlone, in the geographic centre of Ireland.
