On Our Way details the many trips throughout Europe made over the years by Hugh Oram and his wife, Bernadette. During their travels, they have visited practically every country in Western Europe, as well as countries in Central and Eastern Europe such as Poland. Memorably, Hugh was in... Prague in August 1968, shortly before the Soviet-led invasion of what was then Czechoslovakia. The two trips he made to Prague—one just before the invasion in 1968 and another in the aftermath in 1969—were among the most memorable he has done. Other outstanding trips done by Hugh and his wife have included one to Poland, as well as trips to Greece, Spain, and Portugal, shortly after democracy was restored in each of those countries.
The country that they have done the most explorations in is France, where over the years, they have visited practically every part of the country, including numerous visits to Paris. Hugh considers that he knows the map of Paris as well as the map of the city where he lives, Dublin.
In the course of his journalism and radio work, Hugh has also visited every corner of Ireland—North and South—and has got to know well every city and town, as well as many villages. During these travels, he has gained many insights into Ireland’s culture and unique history.
