As I begin this blog, I am a 29 year old guy from Ireland writing about my travels. I am married nearly five years now and my wife is my usual travel accomplice. Along with travelling, there are a few other things that I am quite passionate about. I love to see animals in their natural habitat, and this often influences my travel plans. I also love to meet new people even though it’s not something I’m very good at.
Running has been one of the most consistent elements of life for the past 15 years. I am quite disciplined about my training so I usually do lots of running while abroad. Running while on holiday isn’t something I look forward to much, but it does give an opportunity to do a bit of ad-hoc sightseeing. It can be a good way of seeing the locals go about their normal day plus I often spot something useful along my way like a restaurant or an internet cafe.
I play music in a band at home. Music doesn’t usually feature hugely in my travels but I figured it was worth a mention here anyway because it’s pretty important to me. Sailing is another hobby of mine, and if I can, I like to go for a sail when I’m abroad. Especially in warm countries. I like to drag my wife out sailing with me too whenever she’ll let me.
So that’s a bit about me and the things that take up a lot of my time and thoughts!
