I always receive travel flyers and brochures from different travel agencies in our area. One day, I received a flyer offering a very cheap trip to Ireland. It is less than 500.00 Euros including the return flight from Munich to Dublin. Accommodation, breakfast and dinner, trips to the different places everyday and tour guides were also included in that trip.

I did not made a second thought because I really find it very cheap considering the many things included in it. I immediately called the travel agency and asked if there were still free seats in that trip. I was so happy when the travel agent said that I am lucky because there were still two seats left.

I had the chance to visit my sister in Phoenix, Arizona last year. Since it was summer season, the weather was really so hot. I believed I cannot live in that kind of place for many years. I still love my new home in Europe. I and my sister did a sightseeing in Phoenix downtown during my visit there. We did it till the sun goes down.

5 days and 4 nights in a 4-star hotel in Budva, Montenegro with buffet breakfast and dinner! Wow, I felt like in a real vacation staying in the most famous and visited city in Montenegro. Out tour guide told us that Budva has only over 10,000 population but during the high season, it is 10 times more populous. In this very small city, I can’t imagine how crowded it is during that time. No wonder, Budva is the capital of Montenegrin tourism.

It is time to travel again soon! I am quite excited and I am finally done packing my luggage. I hope I did not forget anything. I would like to check it again tomorrow before I left. That is also the reason why I already set the alarm and will wake-up 30 minutes earlier as planned. Some people who will be traveling with me will surely ask again why I always take a lot of photographs when I travel. I told them that I need it for my scrapbook, photo albums and of course for my travel blogs. This is also the reason why I had printed some calling cards because some were asking for my travel blogs’ URLs. For professionals who own big companies, they need wholesale business cards printing but for a travel blogger like me, simple calling cards are already enough. (more…)
This is indeed an amazing landscape at the Atlantic Ocean. I can’t imagine that I was able to visit this beautiful nature in the southwestern edge of the Burren region in County Clare, Ireland. The Cliffs of Moher is truly a magnet to many visitors from around the globe. I was so happy when I see this sight. I thought I can only see it in the internet or in a picture but I was finally there.
During our visit, we were given and hour and a half to go around the area. I did walked a lot and took some images of this wonderful landscape. Atlantic Ocean is just so near but I never had the chance to touch its water. It reminds me of home when I see areas like this that are along the sea. It was so windy and cold that time but the unfriendly weather did not stopped me from exploring a bit of Ireland’s most famous sights.
The O’Brien’s Tower is a round stone tower near the midpoint of the cliffs built in 1835 by Sir Cornelius O’Brien to impress female visitors. From the cliffs and from atop the watchtower, visitors can see the Aran Islands in Galway Bay, the Maumturks and Twelve Pins mountain ranges to the north in County Galway, and Loop Head to the south.
