I was almost finished eating my first meal in Ireland when I decided I should take a picture of every meal for the blog (because... of course I should!). The first thing Marisa and I had to do when we... Continue reading

Thanks to my pal, and yours, Lex I was able to attend the TMBG concert on Saturday. I do enjoy seeing concerts at the TLA, but I always purchase the VIP upgrade because I'm too old to stand for an... Continue reading

Ah, it has finally come: our last full day in Ireland. Well, it came two weeks ago, but I’m just getting around to writing about it because I’m a naughty sausage. We had a decision to make: do we stop... Continue reading

After the Ring of Kerry we needed another relaxing day (though all of our days were pretty darn laidback if I’m being honest), so it was decided that we would sleep in on Day 11 and get a late start.... Continue reading

When last we found ourselves in Ireland we opted to tour the Ring of Dingle (a drive along the Dingle peninsula). The more famous, and more often used, drive is the Ring of Kerry. This trip we decided to check... Continue reading

Our ninth day in Ireland called for another lazy day, but little did we know how lazy it would end up being! We slept in and decided that we would grab some lunch, head to Mallow to see their castle,... Continue reading

Continuing our theme of visiting important Christian sites day 8 found us headed to the Rock of Cashel which includes a cathedral and church (though the church was closed for restoration). We went on another tour, and boy was the... Continue reading

I do enjoy visiting a fort, and Kinsale offered up not only Charles Fort but some good fish and chips (or so the Internet told me). Off to Dino’s Fish and chips for lunch, and let me tell you it... Continue reading

When last we were in Ireland I was a different person. Well, not really, but I was a heavier dude. Like, over 100 pounds heavier. Above you’ll see the thinner me wearing an XL T-shirt I bought at the Giant’s... Continue reading

After our full day on Day 5 of driving and sightseeing, a laidback day 6 was on order. This was helped greatly by the previous night’s discovery that while in Ireland several seasons of The Great British Bake Off are... Continue reading

The day began with the gentle rousing rays of the sun, filtered through an omnipresent pearlescent cloud cover, waking me in our little bubble in the woods: What a wonderful way to kick off our last few hours in Northern... Continue reading

Before leaving Belfast we had to have breakfast. I am not known as a tea drinker, but this trip may hav changed that. Can you believe I’ve never put milk in my tea? Here’s proof that I’ve changed my ways:... Continue reading

When I started writing this post I was sitting at the coffee table in our hotel room as Marisa attempted to go to sleep (she’d been having trouble sleeping on the trip but that has cleared up). I went to... Continue reading

Day 2 started with me thinking I had lost my camera and freaking out a little bit. It could only get better from there, and it did (and, as previously noted, I hadn’t lost my camera at all). Our Day... Continue reading

When Marisa and I were discussing where to go on a vacation I couldn’t help but suggest we head to Ireland… again. We had such a wonderful time the first time that Marisa was up for a return visit (in... Continue reading

A few weeks ago I posted about my weight, and the fact that I didn't think I'd meet my personal goal of losing 100 pounds by my birthday. And I totally didn't do it! However, I hopped on the scale... Continue reading

Today was unseasonably warm in Philadelphia, so I thought to myself, “I should go run outside instead of on that dumb old treadmill I’ve been running on for weeks and weeks!” The last time I ran outside it was Christmas... Continue reading

I didn't really need a new computer, but that's never stopped me before! When the new iMac Pro started shipping it made me think about when I bought my current computer. Turns out I bought it on Nov. 30th, 2012... Continue reading
