A little Ireland video montage

If you can’t see this on iPhone, click here.

Here is a little video montage I put together from a few clips using the Sony NEX-5R (c/o) and Sony Action Cam (c/0) for the road clips from our experience driving in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland, all the places we went, Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge, Giant’s Causeway, Galway, Ashford Castle, Cabra Castle, and of course, the best for last, walking a hawk in Cong at Ashford Castle!

I was so blessed by Sony to be given so much awesome equipment that I took with me on the long plane rides.  They were all so lightweight and compact that they fit in my black shoulder carry on here:


I am not above wearing sweatpants especially for a flight across the world. For the record, they are J.Crew’s Saturday pant so they’re class.  Also you can’t really see my backpack but it’s the Sony VAIO laptop backpack which is so awesome – so many pockets and it’s actually really nice looking.  I’d highly recommend it if you need a new backpack.

For our trip I brought the Sony Action Cam (competitor to the GoPro) and mounted on our little rental car dashboard as we drove through the country roads of Ireland.  Here it is in the weather and waterproof mount – I am thinking I need to go snorkeling in the Caribbean again and use it! Hint, hint, Mr.


I used 3M velcro adhesive last minute.  I know, that’s so ghetto style, but I bought a car mount and realized if I left it outside of the car on my side it would get side swiped with how narrow the roads in Ireland were!  I was a bit concerned about a few things with my Sony Action Cam – the reflection off the front of the car windshield, but I knew it was safer inside the car, and also the possible shakiness of the road and my jerry-rigged set up.  But with Sony stabilization the footage are shake-free and you can wear the action cam – if say you’re an extreme biker, snowboarder, or the like. There’s also GPS and Wi-Fi integrated in it so you can remember where you were and immediately see and upload the footage.

I included a few road clips so you could see the roads of Ireland because they are just gorgeous!  The other clips were taken by the Sony NEX-5R (c/o).  It has been cool to have the flip up LCD so I can see what I’m filming a selfie when I’m talking to the camera.  Hope you enjoyed the video!
