My name is Manfred and first of all I would like to give my thanks to Tourism Ireland to point me to this Community.
Since my first visit back in 2008 I've been infected with the "Ireland-Virus". I just love this magic place and so, for my next visit in spring next year, I am planning something very special.
I will spend 2-3 months there and will be cycling all around Ireland (and Northern Ireland) to create a mini-series (documentation) about this country full of magic, mystic and music.
I studied archaeology and I was lucky that I could turn my hobbies (history and genealogy) into my profession. I am writing historical articles for our newspaper, I love taking pictures and listening to good music. So you will not be surprised when I tell you that I will focus myself and my documentation on Irish history, traditions, culture, nature and music and add some of my adventures that I will make and some people that I will meet during my trip. Many questions will arise while planning this trip and a good organisation will be essential to get the most out of it and to succeed, which means to make the best documentation about Ireland that I can make.
Maybe I am lucky enough that it will be broadcasted on German TV (and I would be a lucky man if it would also be on RTE...) So, I do hope for many answers and hints from this Community. You can all become part of a wonderful project!
Tomorrow I will start teasing you with questions ;-)
Have a good night and thank you in advance!
