    Weekends on the move: The Vee view and volcanic Blackwater lake

    One sunny Saturday morning in June, we decided to visit the Knockmealdown Mountains and Blackwater Lake after a long time. If you read my other articles from time to time, these names probably tell you something, because I’ve mentioned them in the past – and now I’ll show you. The Knockmealdown Mountains are located on the border of County Wateford and Tipperary as well as the Comeragh Mountains – they are the only two large mountains in County Waterford. In both cases, the highest points of these mountains are located in Wateford, where Knockmealdown holds the lead in terms of height. Interestingly, both mountains have large lakes, just in the…

    Weekends on the move: Kilkenny Town

    After three years, I visited once again probably the most Irish town on the island, Kilkenny. I’ve been here several times, but this time we discovered new places and I took tons of photos for you! Kilkenny is located inland and is known as the city of hurlers. Hurling is the Irish national sport and Kilkenny has won it the most times (36 times). Apart from hurling, Kilkenny boasts a beautiful castle and, most of all, in my humble opinion, a cute town. My mum and I planned the trip on June 6, Sunday. It was the first time since the pandemic that we went somewhere by public transport. However,…

    Terez advises on photography: about smartphones for beginners

    In the first part of the new series for beginner photographers, I will focus only on phones and show you what you can get from your phone. Okay, you have a phone and a camera in it. Of course, you’ve used it in the past to photograph lunch or dinner or sunset, but somehow those shots didn’t turn out quite well. So let’s take a look together at how to improve the final photo so it’s not just your mom liking the shot on Instagram. First of all, I would recommend finding out how many MPx your camera has and how many lenses. The lenses are the glass wheels on…

    Athens 2017: In the footsteps of ancient Greece

    Four years ago, I fulfilled a big travel dream and visited Athens. Sit back and get ready for really crazy stories, 150 photos of the Acropolis from various parts of the city and 100 photos of the Olympic Stadium. Beware of Athens aka our accommodation failOur Athenian itineraryThe real face of Athens I have been interested in Greece since primary school, when the teacher introduced us and poured into our heads its ancient history. I don’t know why, but I’ve always liked the idea that thousands of years ago people lived the way they wanted, by the sea, in the heat and in their free time, either speculating over the…

    Jukebox: Roosevelt – a German genius in all weathers

    In today’s article, I want to share with you one of the greatest musical geniuses of all time and at the same time my absolute guilty pleasure. And no, US Presidents Theodore and Franklin Roosevelt did not release a posthumous EP. Roosevelt is a German composer, singer and musician. I don’t know why he chose a stage name after the American president. But there is no denying that this is at least easy to remember. And that besides the name there is actually something to remember! I came across Marius during 2015, when I wrote an article about him on my blog about German music (um, about that another time).…

    St. Patrick’s Day in Ireland’s oldest city, Waterford, during a global pandemic

    The title of the article sounds pretty apocalyptic, but don’t worry, everything turned out well! I would like to look back on previous years and at the same time compare my experience with this year. And I also have a lot of great photos for you, so keep reading. Patrick’s Day takes place every year on March 17. Which was nice this year, for example, because I had time off in the middle of the week. Patrick’s Day is also kicking off bank holidays in Ireland – it’s really a long way from the beginning of January to the middle of March without the holidays. As for history, I’m not…

    Tegan and Sara live in Dublin 2017

    So this was a concert I decided on just because I could. I’ve known Tegan and Sara for a while at that time, but I hadn’t really listened to them. But then I got fascinated by their studio album Love You to Death and when I saw that they were coming to Dublin, I couldn’t miss them. It’s been four years since the concert, but certain moments just stuck in my head. Trump was elected President of the United States a few months earlier, and the girls commented on that (they are Canadian and against Trump and his ideologies) in a rather funny and hopeful way. At the same time,…

    Jukebox: folklore and evermore

    Taylor Swift shoved us all how it’s done last year when she released two studio albums and several films. Today I want to introduce you to just the last two albums, folklore and evermore. If you know what it is, then good for you. If you are from another planet or you have just finished a half-year long social detox and you do not know what it is, keep reading. All will be revealed. If you didn’t happen to read my article about the Taylor Swift concert in 2018, then you probably don’t know that I almost didn’t listen to her music before Reputation (except for a few singles). I…
