Photography Journal ~ Prague

Prague is without a doubt one of my favourite cities in Europe. It is a city steeped in history and of course, beauty. Whether having dinner overlooking the Vltava River, admiring Charles’ Bridge up close or getting lost wandering up Petrin Hill, you can’t help but to feel as though it’s a magical place.

I’ve been to Prague 3 times and I certainly plan on visiting again. If you’re planning on visiting and need a few ideas of what to do, I’ll add a list of my favourite things to do at the bottom of this post.

For some reason, my photo’s are not showing up in the correct quality, does anyone know how to fix this!?

1. Petrin Hill & Petrin Tower – If you’re looking for a little exercise while on holidays, Petrin Hill should definitely be your first stop! It’s 1043 feet high and quite a trek.. If you’d still like to visit and rather not walk up, there is a cable car that can take you to the top! Petrin Observation Tower was built in 1891 and is 299 steps to the top. (I highly recommend taking water – the three times I climbed the hill and tower, I forgot water)

2. Astronomical Clock – Medievil Astronomical Clock built in 1410. It is the worlds 3 oldest Astronomical Clock and the worlds ONLY working Astronomical Clock.

3. Hunger Wall – Built in the 14th century

4. Prague Castle

5. Charles’ Bridge

6. Shopping in Palladium.

Photography Journal ~ Ireland

The Emerald Isle truly is a spectacular place. Born and raised in Dublin, I never really had much need for travelling Ireland but recently, I’ve realised how beautiful my little country is and I’ve been making more of an effort to see what Ireland has to offer.

Photography is one of my biggest passions and although I’m no pro, you can definitely see an improvement in some of my more recent pictures. One thing I need to start avoiding is over editing as it can be ridiculously addictive!

Glendalough, County Wicklow.

Glendalough is without a doubt my favourite place in Ireland. It’s a glacial valley in the Wicklow Mountains. There is also a medieval monastic settlement which still remains today which was founded by St. Kevin in the early 6th century.
