Rosses Point and Strandhill

Back to Sligo and surroundings! When I went to the tourist office in Sligo, I was recommended the quick 'day trip' that one can do in and around Sligo. There is a city bus that can take you to both Rosses Point and Strandhill for just under 10 euro for the trip all the way... Continue Reading →

A Reflection on Waiting Tables

I have been working long days as of late. My feet are still killing me, but that's not what I'm writing about today. Well, maybe a line or two, but really there are a few topics I want to bring up. 1) Tip your waiter/waitress. I don't care where you are in the world, tip... Continue Reading →


Update: I have a job. A name tag and everything! I am waiting tables at The Galwegian restaurant at Flannery's Hotel in Galway.

Storm Doris they're calling it here. They give all big storms a name" he jovially responded. I... Continue Reading →

Cork City, Part 1

It's been a while again... To be fair, I've been on the job hunt and taking in as many small adventures as possible before landing a job. There have been some advances in that area, by the way. No jinxing myself though. When something official comes through, I will be more than happy to share!... Continue Reading →
