As mentioned earlier, I finally got my arms around the video issues I was having with both my GoPro (I hope) and my iPhone. I have also familiarized myself with some video editing software, which allows me to combine several individual videos into a compilation and upload them to YouTube.
So here are a number of videos I hope you enjoy. Some are from several months ago, some more recent.
The Cliffs of Moher, Ireland’s Western Coast. Some panoramic shots from various angles.
A Little Irish Music in Galway and Dublin. Lighting is poor, but sound quality is not bad.
Some driving around the UK, various drives from my trips. These are far from the best ones I thought I took, but all I was able to salvage (15 minutes long, so watch when you have time).
Welsh Men’s Choir. We were treated to a private performance during my earlier Jag Tour in Wales. These guys were really great, the sound quality (iPhone) does not do them justice. Just a bunch of local guys who enjoy singing. After the dinner and performance, I bought them all a beer. That was the best part of the night. An amazing bunch, ranging from farmhands to doctors and lawyers.
And finally, God Save the Queen. This was shot just at the start of the Ireland-Croatia World Cup Game at the King’s Head (my local pub). I don’t think you will see this type of uninhibited patriotism in the US! Most of these folks are my new BFF’s, especially the ones with missing teeth or too much makeup!
And now to future adventures. Friday, I bid farewell to my little yellow stone cottage in the Cotswold’s and head out on the final part of my journey. I will miss this place, this village, this pastoral countryside, even all the dogs, mud, rain and horse dung on the roads. You who live here are truly blessed.
I am heading south, along the western and southern coasts, to Devon (the English Riviera) and Cornwall (Land’s End), then over near Portsmouth for the Goodwood Revival. Pray tell you have never heard of it, you must check it out… https://www.goodwood.com/flagship-events/goodwood-revival/.
Just the BEST vintage racing “spectacle” on earth. I have a different costume for each day. Selfies promised.
Then the overnight ferry to St. Malo. Did you read All the Light We Cannot See”? #1 Best Seller for half a year and set in St. Malo during WWII. From there it’s wine and cheese country down to Roquefort and Bordeaux and finally almost to Spain, where I will hit the Pyrenees. This mountain barrier across the continent will take three days before reaching the Mediterranean, and from there, up around the French and Italian Riviera’s, before reaching Tuscany. Anyway, that’s enough of a teaser. 35 straight days living out of a Jaguar. Who could ask for anything more?
