    I've seen lots of things in my travels over the last twelve years or so, but unquestionably one of the most overwhelming sights I've ever witnessed (or smelt or heard for that matter) was on an island not far from Lima, capital of Peru.

    Our photo of the day: Riga at night from the Skyline bar

    Jul082011

    One of the best ways to see the Riga is to head up to the Skyline bar at the top of the Reval Hotel Latvija on Elizabetes street. Not only does the bar boast pretty incredible views of the city, it also serves up a colourful selection of cocktails in comfy surroundings. It’s a great spot to go and watch the sun set over the city, then watch as Riga lights up at night.

    Free days announced for many of Ireland's top attractions

    Jul072011

    One thing I love about Paris is that, if you plan your trip around the first Sunday of the month, you'll save yourself a lot of money as all the main museums are free. This includes the Louvre and Museé d'Orsay. Thankfully, a similar initiative began in Ireland yesterday as, as of from Wednesday July 6th, all heritage sites managed by the Office of Public Works are free on the first Wednesday of the month.

    Jul072011

    During my stay in Manchester, I found myself in and around Market Street a number of times and it was always busy. And the reason why it attracts so many people? Well, it’s the main shopping street in Manchester and, as such, is home to a huge number of different stores including plenty of internationally recognisable brands.

    Our photo of the day: Walking from the Louvre to the Arc de Triomphe

    Jul062011

    I'm sure you don't need me to tell you this, but the most famous museum in Paris (and arguably the world) is the Louvre. You'd need a couple of days to appreciate it fully, and it's home to one particularly famous painting of a particularly famous woman with a particularly famous grin. Upon exiting the museum you're faced with a wonderful walk which is where I took today's photo of the day.

    Jul052011

    Ask anybody why they love Barcelona so much (and you'll find out that most people do indeed love it) and one thing that will come up time and time again is the nightlife. 'Barcelona nightlife rocks!' and 'Man, I partied so hard in Barcelona I thought I'd need a liver transplant' are just some phrases you might hear when talking of it. A neighbourhood famed for its nightlife is El Born, pictured here one night last September.
