What’s blue n’ swirly? Sky and sea!

If they’re good enough for the Ancients….

If they’re good enough for the Ancients….

    Feeling like an ancient Faery Queen in my new autumn bootsies. Super cosy and uphill hike-tested at Knockma (resting place of a real Ancient Queen called Meadhbh 😉) and they passed with flying colors. Check out the BioWorld shop on Etsy for all their […]

Winter is coming.

Winter is coming.

I am trying to embrace the darker days and happily settle into hibernation mode, instead of fighting it, feeling like something is wrong with me!! My body is doing exactly what it is supposed to do when the sunlight hours dwindle; the same thing the […]

“Know when to be the Wolf and when to be the Moon”

“Know when to be the Wolf and when to be the Moon”

The act of re-joining civilisation after a long hiatus has been rejuvenating and stimulating. After five months in a remote mountain village, and two years in an equally remote location have served me well, but the time to come back to people and social inclusion […]

A Tuesday walk & “Winter is Over!!”

I am not a Winter-bird. I don’t think I have ever been one. I rejoice when Spring arrives.  Although I can agree fully that winter scenes are beautiful, and magical, and that, oh, say, a month of winter activities is exciting and rejuvenating, I have […]

Bienvenue á Lyon!

Bienvenue á Lyon!

I took a break from the resort-life for a weekend and visited the beautiful city of Lyon, which is about a 3 hour train ride from where I am living in the Rhóne-Alpes region. Thanks to Airbnb, I found a delightful little apartment in the […]

How to find vegan food in the French Alps

How to find vegan food in the French Alps

Is it even possible? I have been here for about 4 months, and although it is incredibly beautiful, the ‘food situation’ for me has been difficult. I’m vegan, and, to make it a bit more fun, I have a nut allergy. I never realised how […]

Tribal Fusion Bellydance

Tribal Fusion Bellydance

I was a late-comer to the world of fusion dance. My introduction was when a friend posted a video on Facebook about 7 years ago of Rachel Brice. I was fascinated. As a true-blue Classical ballet bun-head, this was so different from what I’d trained […]
