That's County Carlow

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

Travels

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

2006-2008

2009-2010

2011-

I've been on 24 plane journeys (12x return) and 18 ferry crossings (9x return). I haven't left Europe.... yet.

Why Aberystwyth?

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

Going to try something new here and make of 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.

This list isn't in order of preference - it goes first alphabetically by country, then by destination. (Last updated: October 23, 2012)

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 :).
