Thank you for putting this together. I am reading a few of your Ireland blogs in preparation for my next trip there in May. I used your Spain blog for a good deal of my itinerary last year.

Thanks again and happy travels!

Hi Dennie – thanks so much for commenting and letting me know!! So glad it was helpful. I loved Ireland even more than Spain so I think you’ll have a fantastic trip :)

Thank you again for your great indepth and insight blog. I just came back from Ireland a few days ago and like you we loved Ireland more than Spain in many ways. What really helped was we had mild sunny weather and clear skies our entire trip.

We are probably heading to France next year so I’ll surely check your posts for insights and details.

Hi Dennie – thanks so much for taking the time to comment – so glad you found the travel posts helpful! Ah, you’re lucky to have gotten such great weather in Ireland. Where in France will you be headed? I’m dying to visit the french countryside and small villages in the south someday!

DennieJune 1, 2018 - 10:18 am

I’m not sure where we’d go in France as I spend months looking at blogs, pinterest posts and travel guides as I start putting my itinerary together. I think tentatively we’d spend 4 days in Paris which includes a day trip to Versailles. The rest of the trip would likely be in the countryside.

Hi, do the sneakers run true to size? Any break in period? What color are yours? I like the two tone. Thanks!

SherApril 5, 2019 - 10:19 pm

Hi Erin – Yes, true to size and no break in period for me. I have the blue color, which looks blueish grey in person.

The Gargoyles of Notre Dame

  Notre Dame Gargoyles The Catholic cathedral Notre Dame stands imposingly on the eastern half of  Île de la Cité. About as iconic as the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame de Paris is one of the finest examples of French Gothic architecture and well worth a visit. The church interior is massive and typically clogged with […]

These photos are amazing! I’m a bit claustrophobic, but I think I’d brave the narrow climb for that view!

SherMarch 21, 2014 - 7:46 pm

haha, it definitely felt a little squeezed up at the top.

The World’s Most Scenic Road Trip – Cape Town, South Africa

  Cape Point & Peninsula Tour Cape Town’s coastline was immortalized in the 1800’s. Dashing adventurers Bartolomeu Dias and Vaso de Gama found the turning point of the Far East trade route, where the journey changed from southward to eastward. Here, the waves are rocky, the current strong and the foggy scenery overwhelmingly wild and beautiful. […]

SherDecember 14, 2015 - 9:39 am

Yes!! Cape Town is so beautiful, I hope you get a chance to visit soon Catarina

TIFFDecember 14, 2015 - 10:18 am

WOW, breathtaking beautiful!!
The drive and the most southern point of the African continent.
It’s always amaze to see what the world await us to see

AngelaMarch 1, 2016 - 9:04 pm

Wow, wow and wow! Cannot wait to hit the open road and check out this unbelievable scenic drive.

Dan VinebergMarch 2, 2016 - 3:09 pm

Alright, I was skeptical to your claim of most scenic drive in the world… but with those photos… I think you’ve convinced me! :D

SherMarch 2, 2016 - 7:33 pm

Ok I may exaggerate a bit IRL Dan… but Cape Town is worth the drive! :) I promise

VickiMarch 2, 2016 - 9:23 pm

I’m heading to South Africa later this year and I am so excited to see the Cape Town Penguins! I’m also driving from Cape Town to Jo’Burg so hopefully I’ll see some of the amazing scenery from your photographs along the way!

SherMarch 3, 2016 - 3:08 pm

Awesome, have a great time Vicki! Just to clarify, the penguins straight south of Cape Town, so you’d prob go east from Jo’Burg to Cape Town, then down south to the peninsula. The penguins are adorable, you’re going to love it!

Dom & Claire Flashpacking DuoMarch 4, 2016 - 2:28 pm

This drive looks and sounds amazing. If we ever find ourselves in South Africa this is something we will definitely do. Thanks for sharing.

Stacey ValleMarch 7, 2016 - 4:48 am

How beautiful! I would love to have a drive through that! The penguins! I’d be so happy to see them! haha, seem such a wonderful and relaxing experience. I did one on Pacific Coast Highway in California recently. Not all the way, but up from LA to Monterey. Definitely beautiful too!

Jesper, The Biveros EffectMarch 18, 2016 - 9:19 am

Amazing photos, must be really nice destinations :)

SherMarch 20, 2016 - 12:06 pm

Thanks Jesper!

TanasiaMarch 31, 2016 - 6:27 pm

Had no idea there were penguins in Africa! Will definitely have to add Capetown to our list of places to visit.

SherMarch 31, 2016 - 7:27 pm

There are African penguins! They’re smaller than the antarctic ones and super cute! they were honking and splashing in the waves which was so fun to watch.

Just curious how long this road trip takes. It looks amazing!
