Cathal means “battle” + “ruler” (cath + val). I seek such battles and challenges and balance myself to where I am now. All great things start small, and the journey of a million miles starts with a single step.

Stoic philosophies aside welcome to my site, where I might write or post visuals on travels and life. Nothing should be taken too seriously, just enjoy.

A World Through My Eyes

I've taken up photography as a hobby and it simply tells a little story of where I've been and what I like to see.



Video and Photography are the most important forms of content to attract and capture people’s attention, I enjoy capturing people, places and feelings and I continue to grow with it. MY INSTAGRAM: CATHALMCGIV

There’s no right or wrong, only balance. I advocate mindfulness and growth. As an avid non-fiction reader I enjoy having ideas and pondering on reality, authors like Aldous Huxely, Marcus Aurelius, Miyamoto Musashi, Terence McKenna and Alan Watts help me do this.

I believe that someone who travels a lot and reads a lot has seen a lot and knows a lot. So that’s what I do.
