Imagine... in 2 weeks time well be...

Time, as they say, marches on.

It is starting to creep up on us now, the date of departure, the commencement of the adventure. Nervous? Worried? NEVER! Excited!

Theres just so much to update you on... its shocking...

We have adopted the Childrens Hospital as our charity, and we will be hosting a few fund raising events for their benefit soon enough, confirmed details to follow...

But so far there will be a Table Quiz in the Showboat, in the Glen in Waterford City on Thursday 29th July. €20 per team of 4, and we should reading the first question at 8pm.

We will also have a bagpacking session in an obliging supermarket, just waiting on confirmation before we reveal the venue for this. If anyone would be interested in volunteering their time for some of our fund raising activities, send us a message!

Our Darwinian route is in constant flux. We have a lot of gaps filled in, in terms of where we will be staying each night, and where we will visist between the stops. Some suggested places and things to do that we are going to do are The Father Ted house in Clare, The Dolphin in Dingle, Swim in the Shannon Estuary, Bram Stokers Birthplace in Dublin and a few other besides!

The Route currently looks like this:


At this point we have to give a HUGE thank two new sponsors who have agreed to support the cause! These two fantastic institutions are Kilronan Hostel on Inis Mor and O Brien Line Ferries, which operates between Doolin and the Aran Islands. O Briend Line Ferries are going to take myself and James across Inis Mor free of charge, and Kilronan Hostel is going to put us up for the night, also free of charge!

It is the generosity of places like this that help make it all happen!

As always we are welcome of any suggestions for places to go take a look at, or challenges to attempt on our travels... Drop us a comment on this or on Facebook or you can email us at

Thanks for following so far, and feel free to spread the word to your friends :D

More to follow!
