Off the Rails with Paddy and Plunkett!

Or rather on the rails, because the boys recently took a road trip… By train! Their first port of call after leaving home was (of course) a quick tea break in Belfast. You can’t go adventuring without fuelling up first! They found a nice spot where they could look out at the City Hall, and… Read More

Back to the Wild North West!

Explorer Beastie’s been a bit quiet lately, hasn’t he? But he always likes to take advantage of the post-Christmas lull to do a spot of out-of-town adventuring, and last week found both of us up in Donegal again, treading a slightly different path from the one we took this time last year. Actually, this breaking… Read More

2017 – A Year of Monster Adventures!

Oh wow, I can’t believe we’re nearly at the end of 2017 already! It’s all been a bit of a blur – surely it was only just Hallowe’en? So I thought I would use this, the last “real” post of the year, to take a look back over the highlights of the last 12 months.… Read More

Beasties on Safari!

We’ve a special guest Beastie on the blog today! It’s been a while since he last showed his fuzzy little face around here, but those of you who have been following the BeastieBlog long-term might well recognise him. Hey there, Garcia Beastie! If you’ve met him before, you may remember that he is partial to… Read More

Paddy and Plunkett in Poreฤ

It’s starting to feel decidedly wintry here in Beastie Towers these last few days – the trees outside are almost bare, and the sun seems to be getting up ever later every morning, and having A LOT of early nights! So I’m sure you can understand why I was very happy to discover this last… Read More

Beasties… On the Rocks!

Last time we caught up with Paddy and Plunkett, those globetrotting little monsters appeared to be living it up in the sunshine somewhere. But now… Have they hit the slopes for a spot of skiing? Ha! Nope. What you’re seeing is actually a beautiful rocky beach in Croatia, where the limestone “shelves” have been scrubbed… Read More

The Wild West Coast

It’s time to hit the road with Explorer Beastie again! Last time the pair of us were in Donegal (the most north-westerly county in Ireland) we chose to head to its northernmost point. This time around, we decided to see how far west we could go before we fell into the sea. Since we were… Read More

Paddy and Plunkett… Lost in Translation!

It’s been a while since Paddy and Plunkett last showed their woolly little faces on the BeastieBlog, hasn’t it? But just when I was starting to wonder where on earth they’d got to, a whole heap of new snaps found their way into my inbox. And surprise surprise, they’re on holiday AGAIN. Lucky little monsters…… Read More

Cliff Climbs and Fun Times

It’s been a while since Explorer Beastie got out anywhere, hasn’t it? So, when we were offered the chance to get away for a day and see The Gobbins Cliff Path in beautiful Co. Antrim, we were both pretty excited! We’d heard a lot about this place from other people… and from other Beasties, too.… Read More

Paddy and Plunkett, Rulers of the Multiverse!

With all the talk Stateside about the total solar eclipse yesterday, Paddy and Plunkett just had to get a slice of the astronomical action for themselves! So they very kindly sent me on some pictures of themselves gadding around in this incredible and unearthly place – welcome to the Crawick Multiverse! This unique attraction is… Read More
