Local Irish Food and Outdoor Activities: Photo Tour That Will Make You Want to Visit Ireland Right Now

7 days in Ireland provides plenty of opportunities for photography sessions.  While reading about a trip is great, sometimes scrolling through a bunch of pics can be more effective to get people wanting to visit a new place.  Below are 3 categories from my trip (food, outdoors and city walks) that will hopefully make you book that ticket.

Lessons Learned from Loose Rocks in the Himalayas

Ever since I was little I had issues with balance – walking into glass doors, walking into people, backing up into poles (on my driving test nonetheless) and the list goes on. All of this to illustrate what a major klutz I am and how often my sight and balance have failed me. Perhaps that is a part of the reason I started hiking a few years back; I needed to prove to myself that I could walk on any terrain without falling or bumping into objects.

The Foods of Apulia in Southern Italy

An 8 hour flight from New York JFK into Rome Leonardo da Vinci airport.  A 4 hour train ride southeast into Bari.  Another 2 hour train ride further south into Lecce.  And a 45 minute cab ride over to Otranto on the Adriatic Sea.

A bit of a trek, but well worth it to explore and eat my way through the Apulia Region of Italy.

Summer Travel to Lake Annecy

Spoiled for choice is the best way to describe Annecy in the Savoy region of France.  A year-round travel destination with unlimited activities ranging from swimming and hiking to cross country and downhill skiing (and everything in-between.)

I went at the start of summer and spent 5 days taking in as many outdoor activities as possible.

Paris Photo Walk

An overnight flight between New York and Paris is around 7 hours.  If you find a good flight deal and have a long weekend, what is stopping you from packing a couple shirts, grabbing your best walking shoes and picking up your camera for a quick trip across the Atlantic.  (Note: this is not like my 48 hours trip to Iceland, but a few curated pictures I took while strolling around Paris to inspire you to book that plane ticket.)

Claude Monet Garden in Giverny

Claude Monet’s Garden is located about 1.5 hours outside of Paris.  If you are spending some time in Paris or the north of France, this striking garden is something to put on your travel itinerary.  I had spent an afternoon in Giverny visiting the grounds and taking pictures as quickly as my camera would allow.  It is a gorgeous space and if you are looking to bring back some concepts for your own garden (or purchase some seeds to plant) Monet has you covered.
