Amazing places to see

“If you reject the food, ignore the customs, fear the religion and avoid the people, you might better stay home.” -James Michener

My second great love in life other than food (shopping, cooking, eating, talking about etc.) is travel (or Hugh Jackman if he ever becomes available, putting it out there just in case). Some people enjoy going to the same all inclusive resort each year, and if this is what you enjoy then you should absolutely do it.

I don’t! but my days of back packing and staying in questionable hostels are largely behind me. I’m not a travel snob, basically a clean bed and a shower and I’m happy. Throw in some great food, interesting sights and a bit of craic with the locals and I’m in holiday heaven.
