My Project 365 Year End Gallery

It has been a year since I changed the format of In that time, I have done a lot of traveling and I have taken a lot of photos. I would not even hazard a guess as to how many photos I take in a year, I just know I am glad we use memory cards instead of film these days. In the past year, Tanya and I have visited AZ, NV, UT, NM, CO, OK, TX, LA, MS, AR, TN, KY, MO, NE, IA, IN, SD KS, IL, WY, Ireland, Spain and The Netherlands. I also went to …

A Photo a Day For September 2010

A Picture a Day – Project 365 September 2010 What a month September was. I should have figured that starting it off with a visit to a doctor was not a good way to start it off, but I had little choice. Enough complaining. All in all, it was a good month with a visit to my first hot air balloon festival, then off to Europe with Tanya. We had an amazing time together, visiting Ireland, Barcelona and Amsterdam.

Photos From Our Final Day in Dublin

Our Final Day in Ireland Photos From Dublin I must apologize to all the people we met in Dublin on our final day there. I had assured you the photos I took would be up a couple weeks ago, but I failed. To be honest, I forgot that I had these to do and as soon as we left Dublin we headed to Barcelona then Amsterdam. I have no excuse except that we must have been having too much fun. Anyway, our last day in Dublin was a very spiritual day as we visited Christ Church and St Patrick’s Cathedral, …

Project 365 Does Ireland

I am such a slacker at times. I had full intentions of keeping my picture a day project somewhat current while traveling through Europe, but long days and slow Internet connections made it rather difficult. So it is time to play catch up again. On day 258 we boarded a bus for a three day tour of west and southern Ireland. Since I had never driven on the wrong side of the road intentionally before, much less with a car that had the steering wheel on the wrong side, it was decided that this would be the best way to …

Photos from the Guinness Brewery

Photos From Around Dublin A Visit To the Guinness Brewery and More Saturday, we got a late start, due to my error with the alarm clock. Oh well, guess we needed the sleep. After grabbing some coffee and a bagel at the local O’Brien’s we arranged for transportation and sights to see. We started off at the Guinness Brewery where we got a couple pints and learned to pour the perfect pint. We then jumped on a tour bus and kept our eyes peeled for somewhere to eat. After we finished dinner we walked back to the B&B we are …

Photos of the ride from Killarney to Dublin

Photos From Killarney to Dublin, Ireland The Third Day of Our Tour of Ireland On Thursday, we received notice that a cruise ship was coming into Cork on Friday morning. This meant that upwards of 20 tour buses would be descending on the Blarney Castle, which was to be our first stop Friday morning. Our driver, Don, decided that in order to beat the crowds we would hit the road at 8:00 AM. Another early day. It turned out to be a great idea as there was only one other tour bus there when we arrived. After a couple hours …

Photos of Galway to Killarney

Galway to Killarney Photos From Day Two of Our Tour of Ireland Thursday was day two of our tour of western and southern Ireland. We started the day in Galway and ended in Killarney.

There is a new competition for the seven wonders of nature of which the Cliffs of Moher is one of the …

Photos of the Road From Dublin to Galway

Photos From Dublin to Galway Day Three in Ireland Wednesday morning, Tanya and I packed up and walked a few doors down to the local Paddy Wagon Tours office to begin a three day tour of western and southern Ireland. Day one was a ride across the island, ending up in Galway. There is a lot of history in this country. I think it would pretty difficult to not feel a certain amount of pride in being Irish once you have visited here and learned more of Ireland’s past. I know I came away with even more pride in being …

Photos from Dublin

Dublin Sights Pictures From Our Second Day in Ireland Tuesday, since we were still recovering from the flight over, we decided to spend the day in Dublin. The first course of business was to find a hostel to spend the evening and a place to dump our luggage. Once that was accomplished we headed out. Dublin is a great little town, with many friendly people. I have to give Guinness credit for being the great unifier. It crosses all boundaries.

Photos of the Journey From Amsterdam to Dublin

Flight From Amsterdam to Dublin Photos From Our First Day In Ireland It was early Monday morning when we arrived in Amsterdam. We only had a couple of hours between flights, so we spent it at the airport dealing with airport security and getting to our gate for the connecting flight. Time flew, so in no time it felt as if we were airborne again, on our way to Dublin. A good friend of mine is from Dublin and he still has family there. His mother, a sister and her daughter met us at the airport in Dublin and took …
