Where in the World are Paddy and Plunkett?

Hey there everyone! Well, Paddy and Plunkett are finally back from their last trip
Paddy Driving, Plunkett Leaving - Paddy, Plunkett and Perseverance… So I thought it was time to reboot this occasional feature and send them off on their (imaginary) travels again. We have to keep them entertained, after all.

Ready? Let’s go – where in the world are you, Paddy and Plunkett?
Still Cold - Paddy and Plunkett - CrawCrafts Beasties“Not sure… But wherever it is, it’s still chilly here. Even at this time of year!”
“Yes, I’m glad I’ve got my cosy sweater on. Brrrrr!”

Okaaaay – are there any landmarks you can point out, to help us find you?

“Ummmm, how about this? I think it’s a famous cathedral.”

“It looks even cooler at night. Check it out!”

“Oh, and you might recognise the square in front of the cathedral too. It’s massive!”
Plunkett on the Square - CrawCrafts Beasties“The square is named after a colour, and the big wall behind me protects an extensive fortified complex of towers, palaces and churches that includes the official residence of the country’s president.”

“Don’t forget this place, Plunkett!”
Famous Tomb - Paddy and Plunkett - CrawCrafts Beasties“What is it, Paddy? Is it a pyramid?”
“Not exactly… But it is a tomb! Visitors can go inside and see the embalmed body of a 20th-century leader who played an important part in this country’s history. C’mon, let’s have a look!”
“Um… How about you go, and I wait for you here?”

Fortunately, dallying is not encouraged in this particular attraction, so it’s not long before Paddy rejoins Plunkett and the pair go to see some more of the city’s sights. Plunkett is keen to explore a very distinctive architectural style that has become the trademark of this country’s older buildings, especially its churches.
Architecture with Paddy and Plunkett - CrawCrafts Beasties“Cool! The tops of the towers look like onions!”
“Yes… That’s why we call them “onion domes”. Look around you, there are loads!”

So the boys cut their tour short, and head off in search of some lunch. But hopefully they’ve left you enough clues to figure out the name of the country and city they visited today! Be sure to share your guesses in the comments… Answer in next week’s post!

    1. They sure do! You’ll need to head a little further north to find them though… Cheers for dropping in, Simon 😊

  1. This is brilliant! A guided tour of……oooops! I almost gave it away there. Great pictures of wonderful buildings for the boys to enjoy (and for the rest of us to enjoy too.)

    1. Thanks, Queen Bee! It was nice to revisit this place with the boys… The city really is spectacular. Cheers for popping in, and don’t forget to check back in on Tuesday to see if you were right!

  2. Really stunning photos, Helen. Wow. πŸ™‚ I have some ideas but will wait to find out! I’m most of all glad that P&P were well-dressed for the weather — tweed and Aran sweaters would fare one very well in this northern climate, I imagine. I hope they got to enjoy the local night life, and maybe a few rounds of chess with the locals?

    1. Heehee, thanks Shirley! It certainly sounds like you’re on the right track, anyway… And yes, woollies and tweed are definitely the right choice when you’re exploring this city in the early spring. Brrrr! Cheers for stopping in 😊
