A view worth getting the flu for: Fingal Head Lighthouse
As much as I generally make fun of this label (mostly because it sounds a little hipster), I will admit that I am a bit of a weekend warrior. My jobs (my business and my call centre job) both require me sitting at a desk and staring at multiple computer screens for long hours, and … Continue reading A view worth getting the flu for: Fingal Head Lighthouse
