My name is Cathelijne de Wit-Peijs. I’ve been living in beautiful Ireland since 2015 and work as a tour guide in Dublin and Wicklow.
In the summer of 2019, I will make the ultimate road trip through Ireland. I will report on my adventures along the way in the book 'Ireland: the ultimate road trip'.
This book will be a combination of my travel story and a travel guide. I share my personal experiences, but I also give tips for travellers who also want to make an ultimate road trip through Ireland. The book is illustrated by photos that I will take along the way. The perfect combination of inspiration and information.
I love traveling and in the summer of 2002 I set foot in Ireland for the first time. It was love at first sight. The beautiful nature, the amazing culture, the friendly people and the rich history captured my heart. Since then I have returned many times and in 2015 I decided, together with my husband and dog, to take the leap and to live permanently in Ireland. We have settled in the Wicklow Mountains just south of Dublin. Only when I moved here did I REALLY get to know Ireland and my love for the Emerald Island only grew.
My mission is to share my love for Ireland with others. To achieve this, I founded Witty Walks, my tour company. As a tour guide I take tourists on tours through Wicklow and Dublin. The ultimate road trip project fits perfectly into this mission and combines my love for Ireland with my other passion: writing.
Do you have any tips for me? Places I absolutely can not miss, things I should definitely do or tips for restaurants, pubs, accommodation or other things? Let me know here!
