Ireland and Scotland
I traveled thrrough Ireland and Scotland this summer by car and was blown away by the beauty of the countryside and the warmth of their people. The castles are amazing to see and even more amazing to stay in. Our overnight at Dromoland Castle near Shannon was a wonderful adventure.
There is so much to see and do, from wandering through the ancient halls of old castles, hiking up the trails of the Cliffs of Moher and the Ring of Kerry, to a lazy afternoon of tasting Ireland's famous Jameson's whiskey. Then of course, one cannot miss the Guinness tour in Dublin, as well as the amazing library at Trinity College, where rows upon rows of ancient scribes with soaring ceilings take your breath away.
The Scottish Highlands were breathtaking, with large grassy plains giving way to cliffs and mountain ranges with hundreds of cascading waterfalls. Every turn around a road was a new site to behold. The food was amazing and the Scottish hospitality was warm and inviting in every hotel and bed and breakfast where we stayed. If you enjoy single malt scotch, this is the place to tour. Here you have a chance to taste samples from all the amazing distilleries you have heard of. There are dozens to chose from in each part of this country.
The roads are a bit intimidating at first but driving on your own really allows you the luxury of going where you want, when you want.
