Last week I had the pleasure of touring the North coast of Ireland for a series I’m filming. It was a deliciously surprising treat! I haven’t been around that neck of the woods since I was a kid and it is breathtakingly beautiful. Helped along by the fact that I was at the wheel of an old 60’s VW camper van, named Rupert. He was fabulous. A little hard on the arms but once I got used to that fact I had a ball and we were solid old pals by the end. If you’re not taking a foreign jaunt this summer, don’t lament. We have a wonderful, colourful (in every sense of the word) country at our finger tips. Hit the open road and revisit the holidays of your childhood! I am now desperate to head to Trabolgan and hit the wave pool and big yellow slide with gusto.
