Doing Dublin (again!)

Back at the end of February, I was fortunate to spend a weekend in Dublin catching up with friends and exploring in and around the Irish capital. On a previous visit to the Emerald Isle I had done a walking tour and seen some of the capital’s top sights and so on this trip I was hoping to see some more of the city as well as some of the nearby towns.

Kiev

ack in December I took a two-night trip to another new country and city, this time visiting the Ukrainian capital, Kiev. I’ve decided to write this blog in a different style to previous destination reports, with different sections covering Food, Things to Do and my random thoughts. Hopefully it’ll give you a good idea of my adventures in the city and any feedback on this post (and any others) will be gratefully received.

National Railway Museum

Back in August we decided to take a trip to York to celebrate my birthday and agreed we’d spend some time looking around the city itself before heading to the National Railway Museum (NRM) for the afternoon. This post is going to look at the NRM itself, however you'll soon be able to read about York itself on Beth’s blog and my review of our journey to York here. The review of our eventful journey home will be coming soon on the blog!

Meandering around Madrid…part 2

After brilliant but long day on my first full day in Madrid, I woke slightly later than planned on my second and so moved fairly quickly to ensure I could fit as many adventures as possible into the day. My first stop was the Neptune Fountain that the walking tour had finished near which is also the starting point for the City Tour Madrid sightseeing buses. I had been in two minds as to whether to bother with the bus tours, however after all the walking the previous day I decided to see the city from a seated position!
