Listening to Irish Music in Lisdoonvarna

Happy Easter! I hope you did had a wonderful and peaceful celebration of this season. As for me, it is quite okey. I visited some families during the weekend and last night, I was also invited for a dinner. I did not know that it was my friend’s husband’s birthday. It was quite a lovely evening seeing friends again. The weather was not really friendly because we are having a four-seasons weather since last week until today. Bu then, everything is fine!

I love these live performers in our hotel in Lisdoonvarna, Ireland. They are quite in the age but still, they performed great Irish folks songs that night. Cool performance indeed!

Let me share a bit about my travel in Ireland last 2013. One of the places we visited was in Lisdoonvarna. It is
a spa town  in County Clare in Ireland. The town is famous for its music and festivals. One of  its famous festivals is the so-called “Matchmaking festival” held every September.   I visited the place in winter 2013,  so sorry for me, I have not witness this celebration. (more…)

 

The Beautiful Fountain in Opole, Poland

It was a memorable trip last summer 2014 in Poland. You know why?  It is where I celebrated my birthday. One of the places I visited was Opole. It is a city in southern Poland on the Oder River (Odra).  The city is also known as the capital of the historical region Upper Silesia.

I had the chance to go around the city with other   German tourists. We actually had a tour guide that time.  After the tour, we were given the time  to explore  the place on our own.  For now, let me just share this photo of a beautiful fountain in Opole since I am slowly going to workland.

The Viru Gate in Tallinn, Estonia

It was one of the most memorable   travels I had last 2013.  That cruise in the Baltic Region of Europe was indeed a great experience seeing various cities and countries in the region.  One of the cities we visited was the capital of Estonia, Tallinn.  The sightseeing tour we had in the city was all worth it seeing its most historic sights from Medieval Old Town, Raekoja Plats and its Town Hall, Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, City Wall and more. We also passed-by its famous Viru Gate and here a photo of this gate.

Photo of the Day- Regensburg with the Danube River

The sky was gray during that visit. It was winter and this is what you can expect during this season of the year. Regensburg is one of my favorite cities especially in the region of Bavaria, commonly known as Bayern in German. It is a beautiful city and its medieval centre is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

I can’t exactly remember how many times did I already visited the place but when I have visitors from afar, I  always take them here.

Went Shopping in Arcaden, Regensburg

I had a doctor’s appointment in Regensburg  last week. I have to wake-up early to catch the train, making it sure that I won’t be late. It was a cold winter morning. I still have to drive to the train station for around 15 minutes. I thought I will be late because the road was quite slippery and driving faster is quite not possible. I was thankful that I made it on time, bought my ticket and still have enough time to catch the train.

After my doctor’s appointment, I decided to stop-by at the mall. The Arcaden mall is just some minutes walk from my doctor’s clinic. Since it is almost lunch time, I decided to take a lunch first at the sushi bar in the mall.  I ordered a Bento Lachs which really taste so good.  (more…)
