Review: Kilbora B&B, Camolin, Ireland

DSC_0442

A few minutes south of the village of Camolin, on the east side of Ireland about 90 minutes from Dublin, nestled in picturesque open fields with views of the countryside in all directions, you will find the Kilbora B&B owned by Anne Marie, offering four spacious and well appointed double or king size ground floor rooms.

Video review – Gulliver Land

It’s a little late for Easter but if you are looking for a nice day out with the kids this summer you won’t go far wrong at Gulliver Land.  Our grandkids just had the best day, which was part of a long weekend also pulling in our trip to the Harry Potter studio tour.

Maybe this short video will give you a taste of what’s in store for the little ones.

The Archives – A little piece of history

A long time ago, we visited our friends Jim and Marie in Vineland, New Jersey, and while we were there we visited Jim’s local fire station where he was a volunteer fire fighter.  One sunny day, we witnessed the Cumberland Country Fire Parade – a spectacular sight for any lover of fire engines!   For those who remember the parade, enjoy the moment.

World Traveller – The Archives

Hi – Well, 2019 is well upon us and I haven’t posted anything yet on the blog – which of course is a blogger “no,no” but sometimes you have to be patient, don’t you?  Over Christmas and into the new year I have managed to finish rescuing old video footage from holidays years gone past, and now I’m into the difficult job of editing it all back together.  Of course, the footage is in old 4:3 format, but surprisingly in good condition considering it is over 20 years old in some instances.

I’ll be publishing some of these memories under their own brand – World Traveller Archives.

Here’s a taste of what’s coming in the archives – this is our first trip to New York.  It is ironic that at the time, there were two uninteresting skyscrapers in the background in many shots, while we focused our attention on the popular sights of the empire state building and the Statue of Liberty.  If only we had known the infamy that was in store for those twin towers…

Best laid plans…

So, Ibiza is apparently well known for its beautiful sunsets. Now I don’t want to burst this particular marketing bubble but I’m fairly sure it will be a similar sunset to the ones in Majorca and Menorca and other nearby locations. Putting that aside, it helps if you are sat on the west coast when it happens (on on the Port side of a cruise ship sailing north). Unfortunately for us, our hotel in Es Cana faces due east so sunsets aren’t its biggest asset. Sunrises on the other hand should be equally awesome… Continue reading “Best laid plans…”

Luxury Bahia Principe Akumal, Mexico

The world is a big place and there are dozens if not hundreds of places we would like to visit (some close to home, some thousands of miles away) and so it makes sense not to waste time going back to the same place twice. Continue reading “Luxury Bahia Principe Akumal, Mexico”
