2018 Travel Stats

I love visualising data, so the data I get out of App in the Air is great for me to play around with. 2018 was another busy year for me on the travel front and it’s not over yet. I’ve still got a trip “down under” next weekend. my year in travel (so far)  I’m […]

The Peruvian Adventure

Earlier this year I got to spend a fabulous week in Peru. While I definitely got to see and do a lot during my week in Peru there are still many many things that I could have done, so I’ll definitely have to go back there at some point in the future. So why Peru? […]

La Ruta del Lechón Puerto Rico

One of the things I love about travel is exploring the local cuisine. In some parts of the world that culinary adventure might involve highly refined restaurants, but in other parts of the world it’s much more rustic and down to earth. In Puerto Rico you quickly discover that roast pork is high on the […]

I logged quite a few flights during 2017, though less than other years. I posted a static image of my flights during 2017 recently, so here’s a slightly more interested animated version from App in the Air: It looks pretty cool and seems to be in the right order, which is both cool and kind […]

Enjoying Regional Cuisine in Jordan

Last night I had dinner with a couple of friends in one of the hotel’s restaurants. Although I’m in Jordan the restaurant was Lebanese, but it’s still in the same region (more or less). The food was excellent and most of what we had we simply shared “family style”. One of the things that really […]

Jetlagged In Vegas

I spent all day yesterday travelling. The flights and everything else were fine, but by about 9 PM local time last night I was completely confused. It was 9pm in Vegas, but 5am in Ireland! So sitting down for a relatively light dinner around the time that some people might be thinking about getting up […]

Istanbul Colours and Flavours

I spent a week in Istanbul, though I only really got to explore the city for two days. The city is fascinating. It’s also incredibly big, so unless you’re prepared to walk a lot you won’t get to see that much! I spent the Saturday and Sunday I was there exploring some of the sights […]
