My Crazy Christmas Travel Wish List

I’ve seen quite a few Christmas travel wish lists out there. Some are practical and realistic with a hint of whimsy, like Lance’s or Stephanie’s. Others are completely outlandish and outright hilarious., like the one over on The Flying Pinto. I’m leaning towards the outrageous, and we’ll see what Santa’s got up his sleeves. Maybe […]

Ireland’s Ring of Kerry and Kenmare

Ring of Kerry

Finishing up the Ireland road trip series, the last stop on our itinerary was The Ring of Kerry, with an overnight in the darling town of Kenmare. Kenmare – the jewel of the Ring of Kerry Ireland is one long scenic drive, and the infamous Ring of Kerry is the most prized portion of that drive. Creating […]

Killarney National Park, Ireland

A great (Irish) cultural tradition Interestingly, Halloween’s origins are Irish. How perfect is this interlude to […]

Mingle in the Dingle


National Geographic once touted the Dingle Peninsula as the most beautiful place on earth… and it was voted one of the top 100 destinations in the world on Trip Advisor. The western-most point in Europe, the Dingle Peninsula juts, fierce and rugged, into the Atlantic. I believe the saying goes something like, “next Parrish, America.” (Get […]

Apologies….and back to Ireland


So, I guess I shouldn’t make promises unless I fully intend to keep them! Last Friday, an entire week ago, I asked you to guess where the next stop of our Ireland road-trip was (perhaps to sip on Irish coffees?) and left you with a little message to “Check back on Monday!” Psych! I meant […]

Ireland’s Cliffs of Moher

Cliffs of Moher

The Cliffs of Moher, Ireland’s most visited natural attraction, draws up to one million visitors each year. Rising over 700 feet from the Atlantic, like a spring green puzzle piece, the stubby outcrops stretch five miles along the Western coast of Ireland. The jewel of County Claire, this was our next stop after cruising around […]
