One Afternoon In Carlow, Ireland
The County Town of Carlow in Ireland is thousands of years old and pre-dates written Irish history, as the phenomenal Brownshill Dolmen testifies. Initially, I only wanted to visit Duckett’s Grove on my way to Waterford from Dublin, but ended up spending an amazing afternoon in this quaint, wonderful and historic town. Though not geared towards tourism, Carlow exhibits many long-standing attractions, from the banks of the River Barrow to the rows of Georgian houses in old centre at Montgomery and Burrin Streets. There is something for everyone to enjoy in Carlow.
Dublin: The Black Pool
Dublin, for many visitors to Ireland, is a prime vacation destination. And it should be. Filled with a vast history, a charming character, and countless attractions including world-class museums, galleries and theatres, Dublin is Europe’s fourth most popular city destination. And don’t forget the fabulous shops, restaurants and pubs… I enjoyed our visit much more than I expected. And we didn’t even get to tour the Guinness Storehouse or the Irish Whiskey Museum.
Tour Of Port Stanley – All In A Day
Port Stanley is a quaint community in Elgin County, Ontario. Located south of London, Ontario on the north shore of Lake Erie. Though once an important route to other inland waterways during the 17th and 18th centuries, a commercial freshwater fishery and abundant tourism support the local economy of this village today. During the summer months, the large, sandy beach known as Main Beach attracts droves of vacationers, students and young families to the area.
Wales Road Trip
Our plan for the last day in England involved driving from Dorchester to Holyhead in Wales. We estimated about 8 hours of travel, including time for rest stops. Following the M5, the route would take us through Bristol, Gloucester, Birmingham, Chester, and Bangor before reaching our destination on the Isle of Anglesey. We had pre-booked a nice for the evening. A large, beautiful Georgian type home...
Oven360 – Extra, Extra, Extra
I tried a new pizza place, Oven360, in Leamington, Ontario last night. It opened recently. Probably in the last couple of weeks. We arrived around 7 PM. Driving up, the restaurant was unexpectedly crowded and patrons were lined up out the door. We decided to go in and have a look anyway. Surprisingly, the line moved quickly. The setup is similar to a Subway. You start at one end, place your order, and add toppings as you move down the line.
Stonehenge – Celebrating Solstice
Stonehenge, the rock-forged monument in Wiltshire is an absolute must-see when visiting southern England. It should be on everybody's list. We booked our timed-tickets online two days before our visit. Timed-tickets are used to control the number of visitors to Stonehenge at any one time. One could just show up to purchase tickets (and many do), but pre-booking is the only way to guarantee entry on a particular day and time during tourist season.
