August started off with a busy weekend at the UK Mega in Essex (check out my blog post all about it here) and quietened down a bit after that. The big news was that I reached 365 days in my geocaching streak! I still can’t believe I managed to do it. It wasn’t easy – some … More Take me back to Achill
26th July – 3rd August was UK Mega week and this year, the honours went to Essex as the venue.

To date, I have … More What’s your favourite cache type?
On 3rd June 2000, exactly one month after the first ever geocache was hidden in Beavercreek, Oregon by Dave Ulmer, Europe’s First (GC43) was hidden on Bray Head, in county Wicklow, Ireland. I’m very lucky to live just a stone’s throw from this historic piece of geocaching heritage and it was among my first 20 finds. I didn’t really understand the importance of … More Celebrating 15 years of Geocaching
I went on two weekend trips in May, and although the sole purpose of neither trip was geocaching, I naturally managed to fit a few good caches in there 🙂 The first trip was to the Giant’s Causeway on the North Antrim Coast in Northern Ireland. This was my second ever visit to the area and it’s still as impressive as … More A Giant Weekend & a Wander around Walden
