A few last thoughts before Porto….

It is late on Wednesday in Dublin and in any other day of the week, it is a work evening. I would probably be asleep with an early rise ahead of me for work. It's different this week and it has been for quite some time as the clock has been slowly ticking down. I... Continue Reading →
