CHASING THE WANDERLUST

Travel & Photography

my avatar

Hi. I am Howard, a travel and landscape photographer, writer, techie, educator and wanderer since forever. I'm not a twenty-something that quit my job to become a travel blogger - though that does sound romantic and inspirational. Since a very early age, I always had the urge to explore and learn new things. And discovering photography in my teens, I would document and capture the wonder of this ever changing world around me.

Discover my wanderlust through this collection of stories, photographs and other tidbits. Hopefully, they will inspire you to explore your own, whether it be around the world or just around the next corner.

Experience Kilkenny Castle

Driving through Kilkenny on our way to the airport, we had to stop and visit the wonderful Kilkenny Castle. Kilkenny is only an hour away from Dublin and we had lots of time to kill. Now there are many amazing castles in Ireland. What makes this one different is that it has been restored and fairly accurately remodeled back to the Victorian country house it once was.

Duckett’s Grove, Carlow, Ireland

One Afternoon In Carlow, Ireland

The County Town of Carlow in Ireland is thousands of years old and pre-dates written Irish history, as the phenomenal Brownshill Dolmen testifies. Initially, I only wanted to visit Duckett’s Grove on my way to Waterford from Dublin, but ended up spending an amazing afternoon in this quaint, wonderful and historic town. Though not geared towards tourism, Carlow exhibits many long-standing attractions, from the banks of the River Barrow to the rows of Georgian houses in old centre at Montgomery and Burrin Streets. There is something for everyone to enjoy in Carlow.

Dublin: The Black Pool

Dublin, for many visitors to Ireland, is a prime vacation destination. And it should be. Filled with a vast history, a charming character, and countless attractions including world-class museums, galleries and theatres, Dublin is Europe’s fourth most popular city destination. And don’t forget the fabulous shops, restaurants and pubs… I enjoyed our visit much more than I expected. And we didn’t even get to tour the Guinness Storehouse or the Irish Whiskey Museum.
