Ever heard of Finn McCool?
How about the Salmon of Knowledge?
Neither had I — until I went to Ireland to ride the Belmond Grand Hibernian, Ireland’s only luxury train.
The train’s gleaming blue and silver carriages, delightful staff and cozy interiors offer the perfect “magic carpet” ride through a fantastical land.
The excursions off the train are no less touched by fantasy.
When we arrived in Cork, for example, our guide greeted us with a cheerful “hallo,” and then launched into an evocative tale about the aforesaid Messrs. McCool and Salmon (of Knowledge).

The Ribble Valley is an idyllic part of the north of England located in north east Lancashire and covering 212 sq. miles of the Forest of Bowland, an area of deep valleys and peat moorland. It’s an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty but despite booming tourism with ever increasing numbers of visitors, it’s still a hidden gem and an undiscovered part of the country to many people.
The village of Downham, near Clitheroe
We decided to take a short break to explore the area and to find out why so many people are flocking to this corner of Lancashire and I couldn’t believe how beautiful it was. The Ribble Valley is centred around the prosperous market town of Clitheroe and is easily accessible from the M6 motorway with Lancaster being 18 miles to the north and Preston 17 miles to the south west.

Interesting Fact: On clear nights, the lights can be seen from over 60 miles (97 km) away, visible in all of New York City and most of suburban Northern New Jersey and Long Island. The lights can also be seen in Fairfield County, Connecticut, as well as Westchester, Orange, and Rockland counties in New York. The beams have been clearly visible as far north as the terrace at Century Country Club in Purchase, New York, from at least as far west as western Morris County, in Flanders, New Jersey, at least as far east as the barrier beach of Fire Island in Suffolk County, New York on Long Island, and as far south near Trenton, New Jersey in nearby Hamilton.

If you’ve been keeping up with my previous posts you’ll have seen that I recently travelled to Venice for a week. Heres a break down of what I got up to every day with links to some earlier blog posts that include a little bit more information about each activity.
Day One: Parco San Giuliano, boat ride
After spending the evening before travelling and getting settled in my hotel, I decided to take the first day easy and headed on over to San Giuliano Park where I had lunch and sat by the waters edge looking over at Venice. I then took a short boat ride with my friend and one of the locals and explored the bay area a little while.
Day Two: St Marks Square + Parco delle Rimembranze
Since it was my first time in Venice, I thought it’d be good to see the most popular spot…
