What about me? My name is Deirdre and I love walking, travel, landscape photography, and mindfulness. And red wine – I love it but know almost nothing about it, except that I prefer merlot!

On the walking front, I walk most days. And, yes, I’m one of those step counters, averaging 8,000 to 10,000 on a good day.

Had to snap this in Washington, DC.

On the travel front, my family and I have visited everywhere from the US to the UK, Iceland to Italy, Scotland to Spain. Have passport, will travel. I love airports and their promise of new experiences at the end of the flight. No flight is too long, no distance too far.

This blog combines my interests – all the photos are my own (unless otherwise stated), all the walks I have walked.

Finally, I’m Irish. A journalist by profession. An avid reader. And frantically practising mindfulness to stay sane!
