Sixteen Days in Ireland has moved!

Hello friends!

I've moved my blog over to my new main site: Plethora, Etc. is my new place for all things travel, baking, and beyond.

It was getting to be a bit much maintaining separate blogs, and plus I wanted a more professional look that does justice to all the gorgeous pictures that we take on our trips.  Added bonus: the new design is much easier to navigate by country, like if you want to see all of the Ireland or Iceland posts at once.

I'm still in the process of transferring over the Sixteen Days in Ireland archives, but I hope to see you over there, where I'll continue writing about our various journeys and more!  And, of course, please drop me a line and let me know what you think of the new look.

Much <3,

Amsterdam in vignette: Albert Cuypstraat Market

The Albert Cuyp market is a menagerie at this time of day, bustling crowds zigzagging this way and that across the narrow street, ricocheting like pinballs between the covered stalls' various delights.

Amsterdam in vignette: Bicyclists

"When you're on two wheels in Amsterdam," our bike guide had said, "You're immediately higher up in the food chain."

Amsterdam Picture Post #1: The Rijksmuseum

In October, we spent a week in Amsterdam after our time in Germany. It's a magical, romantic, and beautiful city, from the peaceful tree-lined canals to the bustling bicycle rush hour.
We stayed in a classic Amsterdam rowhome B&B - tall and narrow.  The stairs were so daunting that I turned around backwards and descended them like a ladder each morning.

Ireland Picture Post #7: Dingle and Slea Head Drive

These pictures are from Day 9 Part 1 and Part 2, where we gathered up some picnicking supplies at the behest of our B&B hosts, and then set off on the scenic drive along the Slea Head peninsula.
