The Dingle Way

Okay, we are still playing some serious catch-up here!  Rewind back in April, and you’ll find us down on the Dingle Peninsula to do a portion of “The Dingle Way Walking Trail“.  The whole loop is about 180 km and takes 8-9 days, however, we only had a weekend so we opted to do 2 of…

Hill Walking In Ireland – Photo Blog

“Hill Walking” was a new term for us when we moved to Ireland….well, now we get it…..there are mostly hills here and not really many mountains.  And you know how it goes…..”when in Rome”…..so now we go Hill Walking!  Hill walking is a bit different from other hiking we’ve done because there’s rarely a trail….

Northern Ireland – Photo Blog

We’re catching up on some weekend trips and adventures around Ireland with a few photo blogs.  Here’s some shots from a trip up to Northern Ireland in April.  Our goal was to hike around the Giant’s Causeway Area.  We also made a stop at a few more highlights near the Causeway including Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge (confession, we…

#HauteRouteBonus – Ski Day in Italy!

The weather on the Haute Route is famously finicky. As a result Alpine Guide incorporates an extra day into the trip in case of weather. We were extremely lucky with the weather on the trip, so much so that we use that extra day to ski in Italy and France along the iconic Vallee Blanche!…

Haute Route Part II

At the end of the first post we left off at the cozy Prafleuri Hut. Day 3’s objective was to get to the Dix Hut, which is famous for its beer menu. Yes, this is a remote hut in the mountains with a beer menu that would rival some restaurants! From the Prafluri hut we…

Haute Route Part 1

First successfully completed in the early 1900s, the Haute Route connects the two historic capitals of alpine climbing and skiing: Chamonix and Zermatt. The ski tour is one of the most famous and coveted in the world, traversing through some of the most incredible jaw dropping alpine terrain in the world. I have completed many…

Donegal, Ireland

Hi folks! Sorry for the radio silence, we’ve staying quite busy over here in Ireland.  I’m sitting on a load of photos to share but struggling with the writing because it turns out without massive language and cultural barriers, you rarely find yourself in the kinds of precarious situations that make for exciting stories.  Never…

We made it to Ireland!

Hi Friends!! Goodnews!  After a little longer “lay-over” in the US than we expected (2.5 months instead of a week or two….) we made it to Ireland! Unfortunately, we don’t have a very good photo documentation of our transition since it was a bit hectic…but I’ll see what I can do and then jump right…

The Balkan Peninsula

The Balkan Peninsula?!  Maybe you’re super geo-gifted, but I’m not, so I had to Google it when Matt suggested the trip….. What better way to finish up our epic travel and tour-guiding extravaganza but take a few more weeks off and head to the beautiful land of the Balkan Peninsula.  Why the Balkan Peninsula you might…

Invasion of the Parental Units

By some stroke of genius (or more like insanity), we managed to more or less book ourselves solid for nearly 3 months of visitors and traveling. We’re not quire sure how this phenomenon happened (lack of common sense and foresight come to mind), but we wouldn’t have traded it for the world.   Craziness aside,…
