Davina Penny is a 47 year old English lass, now living on the South Island of New Zealand. She has swapped life in the fast lane for life in earthquake hit Christchurch, but wouldn't swap back for anything.
Currently she is working as a wildlife park tour guide, but in her spare time enjoys photography (never short of scenery in New Zealand) as well as tarot reading. She has been a tarot reader for 15 years and hopes one day to create her own deck, but as she has the artistic ability of a gnat with epilepsy, that remains a dream for the foreseeable future.
If her two recently published books go down well, she may well persuade her fiancee to undertake a tour of the Southern Hemisphere in order to pen yet another offering.

I enjoyed this trip through Eire and Northern Ireland. I could relate to many of the experiences described in the narrative, particularly the welcoming attitudes and the ubiquitous Bed & Breakfast accomodation. The country is beautiful even if it does rain a lot.
There are a few spelling/typing errors throughout and one or two inappropriate adjectives, but these are largely hidden by the drive, enthusiasm and sense of humour portrayed in the book.
This is more a factual story than a guide, but it certainly gives you a good feel for the country and the people, and its a very enjoyable read.
