My name is Chris(tophe) and I am a Dublin-based travel blogger, originally from France. I’ve spent the last 10 years travelling the Celtic fringe of the world and I settled down for good in the Emerald Isle a few years back, living the dream… well, at least my dream.
From the Shetland Islands to Brittany, from Cornwall to Donegal, I’ve visited the lands of this Ancient people called the Celts. I can’t see myself living anywhere else but in these lands of many extremes and contrasts which have retained a strong identity in a world every day more globalised. So entrenched is my passion for this corner of our planet that I have even undertaken to learn Irish. Progress is slow but progress it is!
Stories from the past have always sparked my curiosity. History was naturally one of my favourite subjects in school, and I went on to graduate from university with a degree in History. Facing rather limited job prospects in the field though, I completed my education with a degree in Political Science from Sorbonne in Paris.
As I moved to Ireland a few years ago, my numerous travels around the Celtic Nations inspired me to create Celtic Wanderlust. Reconnecting with my passion for the past (and finally making good use of my degree), Celtic Wanderlust has become a travel blog for history enthusiasts wanting to explore the Celtic world.
I know from studying the subject at university that history can be complex, overwhelming and yes, even boring. But you don’t have to be a history nerd to understand and appreciate the historical significance of a place. In my blog, I hope to provide travellers with clear, accessible and interesting information about the best heritage sites in the area and the local culture.
Join me on this exciting journey of eye-opening discovery. Beyond cheesy cultural clichés and misconceptions, unearth with me the real stories hiding under old stones for a more authentic travel experience.
Thanks for reading.
