Hey there everyone! Summer has returned to Dublin – I think temperatures climbed to their highest heights of the year so far yesterday! And that’s got me in a holiday sort of mood… So I thought I might use this week’s Flashback Friday to revisit some of my favourite “Beasties on tour” moments. Hopefully it will tide us over until we can all travel again!
Let’s start with Explorer Beastie’s trip to Germany in 2018… A rare example of a Beastie holiday where I was allowed to tag along.
And thanks to the themed gardens in Düsseldorf’s Nordpark, you might have even thought we were briefly in Japan! Explorer Beastie does enjoy a bit of zen serenity now and again.
Paddy and Plunkett are also fond of an away trip. Here’s one of my favourite pictures of them, lurking in the tulips around Arundel Castle in Kent.
While I was looking for this photo, I found some other travel souvenirs – pictures from Antonello and Tiziana Beastie’s visit to Abruzzo!
And yes, that is a real live BEAR in the background!
And speaking of dangerous exploits… One of my favourite Beastie holiday snaps of all time comes courtesy of Tammie Painter, who encouraged her Beastie Finn McSpool to try his paw at scuba diving whilst on holiday in Hawaii!
He wasn’t the only one having fun in the sun in Hawaii, either. Grim Reaper Beastie went there too! Doesn’t he look right at home among all that lava?
Then again, holidays don’t have to be all non-stop action and dramatic scenery. They can also give you the opportunity to take a moment to pursue a favourite hobby…
… Or just kick back and relax!
Are you dreaming of getting away on holiday when things return to normal? Or are you planning a staycation in your favourite local hideaway? Be sure to tell us all about it in the comments!
We’ll be back on Tuesday with more monster mischief… Enjoy the weekend and we’ll see you all then!

I’m hoping it cools down a bit, but those are great shots and I like beardy beastie there 😀
Thanks Simon! Yes, that Beastie does have a magnificent beard… You should have seen it before I trimmed it into shape!
Also, it looks like you might have got your wish… Temperatures here have plummeted to half what they were last week 😳
Yes it’s been a cooler week this week 😀
Very awesome photos! I especially love the one with the poppies!
Thanks Tierney! And cheers for popping in to join the Beasties on vacation 😎
