Take a hop across the pond to Ireland’s Glenveagh National Park and Castle as we discuss one of its greatest mysteries. For as long as there has been economic inequality, there has been jealousy. From the outside looking in, it’s hard to pity someone who seemingly has it all – like a castle for a summer home. Arthur Kingsley Porter aka “The Indiana Jones of Architecture” seemed to have it all, and although it can be easy to judge the Gatsby’s of the world, appearances can be deceiving – they can prove that sometimes having it all just isn’t enough. What would you do if you had the world, but desperately wanted to leave it all behind?
We love our National Parks and we know you do too but when you're out there, remember to enjoy the view but watch your back.
