Grand Parade Under Construction

The Construction of The Grand Parade Cork

I can’t remember how long construction lasted but it went on for quite some time as they tore up and changed the road layout, widened the pavements and generally made the street look a hundred times better than it was before! I’ve […]

Fire Powered Flying

Fire Powered Flying

Fires bursts into the hot air balloon we flew in yesterday near Marrakech, Morocco. The air in the balloon has to be 85C hotter than the surrounding air to provide enough lift to raise the weight of the basket and passengers so we were always warm!

Trafalgar Square Fountain

Trafalgar Square Fountain

Part of one of the fountains in Trafalgar Square, London. The Wikipedia page for the Square has an interesting note about the fountains. When the square was laid out in the 1840s, the fountains’ primary purpose was not aesthetic, but rather to reduce the open space available and the risk of riotous assembly. They were […]
