Getting to Know the Geocaching Vlogger | The Geocaching Junkie

August Hike: Great Sugar Loaf, County Wicklow | The Geocaching Junkie

The thing about New Year’s Resolutions is, you can make big declarations and everyone around you is likely to forget by February and subsequently nobody will hold you accountable.

The Gobbins Coastal Path: July Hike with a Difference | The Geocaching Junkie

Hailed as the most dramatic walk in Europe, The Gobbins coastal path at Islandmagee, County Antrim has been on my ‘must-do’ list ever since it was reopened in August 2015, after an almost six decade long closure.
