That's County Carlow

Hello there! Living in County Carlow, that's in the south-east of Ireland.

  • Travels[edit]

    The way I see it is that we've only got a short while on this planet... we may as well see as much of it as we can. Wouldn't be on Wikitravel if I didn't love travelling, so I'm in the process of making up for years of neglect in that department. Here's where I've been:

    1999-2005[edit]

    2006-2008[edit]

    2009-2010[edit]

    2011-[edit]

    I've been on 32 plane journeys (including 12x return, and 1x connecting return) and 20 ferry crossings (10x return).

    I haven't left Europe.... yet. I left Europe for the first time on 17 November, 2013. I've visited these continents:

    Why Aberystwyth?[edit]

    While it's true that yes, I really like the place, it also helps that it's where my brother lived from October 2009 to July 2012. More than all the other reasons, that's why I went there so often.

    Plans[edit]

    An (ambitious) list of places I'd like to go to. To begin with there will be some "obvious" choices, but as I think about it more and try to recall other places I've considered over the years the list will grow.

    Since I've started this collection, it has unintentionally become very Europe-focused. That will change as I research other continents some more.

    This list isn't in order of preference - it goes first alphabetically by country, then by destination. (Last updated: March 22, 2014)

    An at-a-glance list of the countries I've been to so far:

    The only time I set foot in the USA was for a stopover in November 2013. I spent a few hours, both indoors and outdoors, around the airport.

    Articles[edit]

    Got onto the site in August 2006, since then I've gradually pieced together most of the information on the following pages:

    A lot of these don't have a lot of information though, but I'm working on it :).
