About Me

I’ve always been a curious girl. I see life as a playground with lots of fun stuff to try out. Sure, I sometimes fall off the swing. But then I just pick myself up again and continue playing. Welcome to my world!

In case you’re wondering, the picture I’m using as as my blog header was taken at the first festival I ever volunteered for, the fabulous Festival of World Cultures  in Dun Laoghaire, just outside of Dublin. It stands for everything a good festival should have in my opinion: great entertainment (free if at all possible, so it’s not excluding anyone), yummy food and coffee and above all smiley happy people.

I’ve volunteered at lots of festivals on three different continents since 2004 and am still discovering new and exciting events in Ireland and abroad on a regular basis. I would like to invite you to share this journey with me, contribute to it if you like and above all have fun because that’s what makes life worth living.

  1. I love your website – it’s fab. The Leonard Cohen week blog was really funny and uplifting! I’m yet to experience his music but will soon.

    Thanks! 🙂

  2. Read more of your blog and it’s amazing. You can express yourself so fantastic and sway over things with one blinking eye, well, très aimable. Why dont’ t you write for a newspaper, magazine etc?

  3. I like your writing! And I applied for the Trad festival in Temple Bar so I might see you there, if not before…

  4. Fine blog.

    The volcanic eruption has been playing havoc with literary festivals right around the world with authors having to cancel as far away as Canada.

    Montreal’s Blue Metropolis International Literary Festival, which starts this week, say they’ve had four cancellations.

    With major festivals coming-up in Australia and New Zealand in May we can only hope that it all settles down to ensure all international visitors make it.

  5. Just discovered your blog this morning, love many of your posts, such as Open House, and JDIFF look forward to many more. Planning our own Festival in September http://lucanfestival.wordpress.com/
