The Giant’s Causeway at Sunset

The Giant's Causeway at Sunset

The Giant’s Causeway in Co Antrim, Northern Ireland back in 2018. The evening is the best time to see it. Most of the tourists have gone and while there are always people there at that time of day if conditions are right it’s well worth it!

The view from Quinta da Foz

The view from Quinta da Foz

One of the benefits of working from home at Automattic is meeting up with your team a few times a year in various parts of the world. Obviously that did not happen last year, won’t happen this year either and we had been playing a meetup for April or May last year but that didn’t work out.
In November 2019 I met my team in Porto, Portugal. During the week we had a day to relax so we did a tour of vineyards. After a lengthy drive we toured a couple, took a boat ride on the local river and had a nice meal in a local restaurant. The Quinta da Foz was the second vineyard we visited and it was wonderful. Old architecture and setting mixed with new technology to make wine.

Here’s the view from the road in front looking out on a tributary of the Douro River. It’s a beautiful part of Portugal.

Dunquin Pier

Dunquin Harbour

Dunquin Pier, or Cé Dún Chaoin, in Co Kerry where boats to the Blasket Islands depart from. Beautiful location in the summer but right about now it’ll be a lot less hospitable. Moments before I took this photo, three girls were taking selfies and posing for photos sitting on the edge of the cliff here. Gave me vertigo watching them!
