1. The waters edge
Whether it be the lough, the sea or the ocean, the sound of the water lapping the shore will never become tiresome.

2. My family
For everything they are. This needs no explanation.

 3. Old photographs
I have boxes and boxes of them. They are not in albums and have no sense of order or organisation. A few hours are guaranteed to be lost every time I open one of those boxes.

4. Books
The proper ones, the ones that smell like books. I cannot claim to be an avid reader, but I do like to collect books.

5. Travelling
Exploring, travelling, wandering in general. I really enjoy the anticipation and excitement of getting away from it all to explore somewhere new, near or far.  [Nb. California will always win as my favourite place]
