Traveling Mr. Potato Head

My best friend is named Gnocchi. He’s a tiny, but fully functional, Mr. Potato Head. He’s traveled with me everywhere. He’s like the notorious gnome from Le Fabuleux Destin d’Amélie Poulain, but with way, way more swag. He lives up to his name well — he is a plump potato dumpling with a delicious personality. 

Check this page from time to time to see where Gnocchi travels next!

Okay, it doesn’t always rain. And it’s beautiful at University College Cork (UCC).

The River Lee in Ireland when it’s not flooded.
