I'm pretty lost for words right now. As an Irishman, you can be pretty sure I know my drink and my bars but wow! This was just mad. I've travelled over 90,000km on this trip and in all the cities and in all the countries I've visited, nothing even comes close. You would walk by this place and never...
Holiday destinations don't come with more surprises than most locations in the Middle East but Iran is definitely the most entertaining of them all. Mainly due in part to the wild intrigue that your presence alone can strike in the people you meet. You see, not many tourists visit Iran and those that do tend to stick to what...
We’ve all seen the Kung Fu movies of Ip Man, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon or Hero to name a few. Years growing up watching the Big Big Movie on Saturday nights entailed parking up on the couch with popcorn wincing at Jackie Chan and Bruce Lee tore through foes. I always found myself fascinated by martial arts and put...
I've travelled over 80,000km while travelling the last 10 months. Having arrived in Tokyo a few days ago, I wanted to see what the most unusual, bizarre and weird things that were available. I've done pretty much every shrine, temple, museum, park and Tripadvisor attraction so I thought that this time I'd dig a little deeper and see just...

Imagine a life of nothing but hashish, potato and the odd cup of tea. An impossible feat for most of us but in the spiritual land of India, it's not uncommon to stumble across incredibly devout individuals who do more and more insane undertakings to convey they complete devotion. Some have opted for raising their hand for the rest of...
For most, death is a concept so dark and daunting that we often push it to the catacombs of our minds. We pass the duty of care to a funeral home and see only our recently deceased in all their glory, dressed in their best! Sitting proudly in a fruit basket like coffin so they can be remembered in the...
I've travelled over 84,000 kilometers, takes 37 flights, visited 52 cities (infograph below) but never have I truly found myself with nowhere to stay. Firstly, for a budget backpacker, Seoul is definitely not the cheapest place to visit but I've always been drawn to the place and alas I found myself here rambling the city and it's stunning suburbs....
Growing up, I read in the papers how horrific the regime of Saddam truly was. The graphic imagery posted across the internet and broadcast on television sets all over Ireland. Still, I feel that we never really understand the brevity of how serious the situation truly was. I for one definitely felt like the whole thing was shrouded in...
There is a persistent voice in our heads, you know the one. It's constantly chattering yet we are completely unaware of it most of the time. "I want this", "I don't like this person", "Where am I actually going" or "I'm bored out of my mind". You see, we've carved out this version of ourselves and personified it. We...
