Beekeeping Across Europe
Over the years my passion with bees has led me to travel to other countries in Europe to meet local
beekeepers.Since 1994 I have visited beekeepers in the Pyrenees, Dordogne, Var and Provence
regions of France,western Poland, the Brandenburg region of Germany and latterly Slovenia in 2008.
In 2005 I attended the world beekeeping conference, Apimondia, when it was based in Dublin on its
bi-annual journey around the world.In 2009 I went to Portugal to visit beekeepers and later that year I
attended the 2009 Apimondia conference in Montpellier in September.In 2007, in line with the family tradition,
my wife Rita visited beekeepers in Iceland.
