    Fancy two free guides to some of Britain's best walks?

    Jul212011

    Something I end up doing everywhere I go is walking. Whether it be on a trail to Machu Picchu or from block to block in Manhattan, I always end up doing lots of it when on the road. This isn’t a bad thing of course – you get to see much more this way than by using public transport. Some of my favourite walks are in the UK, and in this weekend’s Telegraph newspaper there’s a free supplement outlining fifty of the best ones.

    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.

    Why we love Twitter - a story about Ellie Goulding and a fan

    Jun022011

    Last night, as a present to my fiancé Vicky who turns 30 today, I took her to see Ellie Goulding in a venue called The Olympia in Dublin (for those of you who don’t know who Ellie Goudling is, look her up on YouTube – she’s got some great songs). As we sat there waiting for her come on, I asked Vicky, "Would you like to know what Ellie has been up to today?" "Yes," she replied, so I handed her my iPhone which was showing Ellie’s Twitter feed (@elliegoulding) and her latest tweets.

    Going to gigs in Glasgow

    May272011

    I could visit Glasgow a hundred times and still keep going back for more. I’ve been twice for work and plenty of other times to hang out with friends and go to gigs. The live music scene in Glasgow is incredible, thanks to a great mix of home grown talent and top bands from all over the world. Three of my favourite places to go to concerts in Glasgow are the O2 Academy, the Garage and the SECC.
