The Ladies View lookout is part of the Ring of Kerry and can be found between Killarney and Kenmare on the N71. On a nice day its a great stop off spot to take in the view and just enjoy how damn beautiful Ireland is.

Costs for the shuttle bus is 1.80 euros for one way or 2.60 euros for the return trip […]

Be it the popular cities like Rome, Florence and Venice or the smaller out of the way places like Lecce (where this photo was taken) way down south in Puglia. The character and charm of these cities are what really gets me. Take the photo above, walking a […]
