- best friends with a camera since youth
- earned money for first SLR camera working in a busy little photography shop by the seaside across the German-German border
- married to my favourite pen pal (yes, paper letters, 2 weeks in the post...) after riding on the crossbar of his bike down a narrow steep road
- attempted to get my head around the yiddle-dee-day-dee-ya trad music at a fleadh cheoil in Dungarvan, Co. Waterford only to have tunes stuck in my head forever
- lucky spectator of the world's one and only Shane McGowan and the Pogues at the Olympia Theatre, Dublin and the Point Depot, Dublin
- on the very rare occasion of snow in Ireland crossed the Wicklow Mountains in pitch black dark and heavy snow in a tiny Nissan Micra, no snow chains or the like, luckily only realizing days after in the bright where the road had been and where not.
- moved across Europe with all my belongings packed into that same Micra, frying pans to sheets, no room to use the back mirror
- walked along lava streams of Mt. Aetna, Sicily
- climbed the backstairs in the Cobblestone, Smithfield Market, Dublin into a private session with Christy Moore
- felt the harsh Norwegian winds blow through my hair and soul at Lindesnes fyr and many other norse places
- just about missed a performance of the Fat Rat at ESL One, Hamburg 2019 after the 1st Clash of Clans world championships
- blessed with wonderful family and friends
- hopefully many more adventures to come
