September Evening in Dublin

Dublin, Ireland
Travel Period: September 2019


It was nice to visit Dublin again. A rather quick visit though as I was here for a business meeting. Because it's work travel I did not have any specifics in the plan but wanted to make use of the free time to see the city a bit again.


This is the lively Temple Bar district, the night hangout of the city locals and many tourists. After dinner, I managed to visit the famous bar of the same name (see the building in red on the corner in full lights glory) and watched some live show, albeit very short as it was a raucous place. sadly, I am not built for these kinds of places anymore.

French Alps: Skiing in La Norma

La Norma, Modane
Saint Jean de Maurienne in the Savoie Region of the French Alps
Travel Period: January 2019

This is our first time to visit and experience La Norma. The ski resort is small, compact and inconspicuous. It has 65 kilometers of easy to moderately advanced slopes and a maximum elevation of 2,750 meters.


Our first impressions were quite good. It wasn't busy at all. The weather was perfect. We very much enjoyed taking on the wide terrain almost to ourselves. What a luxury!

Visiting Bonneval-sur-Arc, a pretty village in the French Alps

Travel Period: January 2019


Bonneval-sur-Arc village in the French Alps.

A year ago, Dutchman and I were in our usual winter sports holiday spot, the French Alps. We stayed in Val Cenis for a week and we managed to explore the nearby ski resorts which I will blog about in my next topics. This was our second time staying in Val Cenis.

On this holiday I was also able to visit a pretty characteristic village called Bonneval-sur-Arc. The Dutchman was not in the mood to visit villages, well never actually, so I went on my own.


The drive to Bonneval-sur-Arc.
