Hello there everyone, and happy Tuesday to you all! It’s a beautiful sunny day here in Dublin, and the clear blue skies have me thinking about all the amazing Beastie travel pics I’ve been sent (and taken myself) over the last few years. The BeastieBlog archive is pretty vast at this point, and it’s a shame to leave those old posts just sitting there, right? So I thought I’d take a wander down sun-soaked memory lane – care to join me?
Explorer Beastie is up for it, anyway. Here he is enjoying an unusually warm day (for Ireland!) in Carlingford in 2016.
Aside from catching some rays in the garden, this trip also saw us exploring a forest inhabited by fairies and giants! If you’re new to the BeastieBlog, you can read the full story here.
2016 was a great year for Beastie travel. One of my favourite sets of photos came from Grim Reaper Beastie, who found himself among the Mayan ruins at Tulum and Coba in Mexico!
Next up – Fairy Princess Beastie takes a trip to Germany’s longest suspension bridge! It was a bright, sunny autumn day… But would a Beastie and her human friend be brave enough to cross this long, narrow bridge suspended 100m above the valley floor? Find out here!
And Paddy and Plunkett are no strangers to a bit of fun in the sun, either! They’ve often stowed away with some obliging human voyagers in search of warmer climes. One of my all-time favourite P&P holiday photos has to be… THIS ONE!
Ooops! Perhaps I should have included a “gratuitous Beastie nudity” warning before publishing that… Moving swiftly on!
Now, when the sun is blazing down and it’s sweltering hot out, a dip in the sea is the perfect way to cool off. Well, it is for people… But do Beasties get to enjoy this too? If you’re Finn McSpool, then the answer is a resounding YES. His underwater exploits in Hawaii broke new ground (or water) for Beastie travel adventures!
And finally, delving waaaaay back into Beastie history… Does anyone remember this one? On a bright spring day in March 2014, Victorian Explorer Beastie scaled Bray Head, just south of Dublin city, to enjoy the scenery!
Wow, what a view! Although, if memory serves, his little stripey legs were a bit tired after the long uphill haul, and he may have hopped in my bag for the return journey!
How about you? Are there any favourite Beastie adventures from days gone by that you’d like to revisit? Or maybe you’ve been lucky enough to snap a mischievous monster at play near you? Either way, be sure to tell us all about it in the comments!
Aaaaand we’ll be back with fresh NEW Beastie adventures next Tuesday, so be sure to join us then!
