Ostrog Monastery is carved in a cliff

We aren’t here to worship, we aren’t here on a pilgrimage, we are here because this is one of the major cultural attractions in Montenegro. No one has questioned our presence here, in fact the only attention we’ve had is from some Dutch tourists.

Connemara, land of many moods

As we travelled on the bus today from Galway toward Connemara, rows and rows of many layers stone walls and colourful hedgerows reminded me of the romantic Irish landscape in books and films. I realised how this land could get under the skin of so many artists, writers and poets alike.
