Musing from my recent Travels

My husband and I are fans of traditional and contemporary Irish music, so we were thrilled to finally make our first trip to Ireland. We didn't want to do the driving, so we found a local tour company that offered small group tours (Irish Experience Tours).

Our 7-day tour took us from Dublin to Galway, to the Aran Islands, and to Doolin. We visited the Cliffs of Moher, took a working sheep farm tour, went whale watching in Dingle, drove the Ring of Kerry, and explored Blarney Castel, Cahir Castle, and the Rock of Cashel. We enjoyed the pub culture: chatting with locals, listening to music, and sipping a few Guinness along the way. 

On our own in Dublin, we visited the Book of Kells, EPIC museum, Dubilina, and the National Museum of Ireland-Archaeology. We also did whiskey tastings (Jameson and Teeling), learned to pour a perfect pint at the Guinness Storehouse, and took a vintage bus tea-time tour.

We ventured out of the city on a rural pub crawl through the Wicklow Mountains and spent a day in the seaside town of Howth. 

We can't wait to go back and see more of this heartwarming country!

…More Musings

My sister and I embarked on a 4-day Rhine River cruise with Avalon Waterways from Frankfurt, Germany. We sailed the Rhine Gorge, filled with castles, and floated our way to Strasbourg, France.

In Ottrot, we enjoyed a wine tasting and also visited the picturesque village of Obernai. While docked in Beisach, Germany, we ventured to the charming village of Colmar, France, and the more modern city of Freiberg, Germany.

We disembarked in Basel, Switzerland, and walked the city highlights, shopping for chocolate and Christmas ornaments. We had a dinner of cheese fondue that was crazy delicious.

We returned by train to Strasbourg, where we enjoyed a slower pace of shopping, taking cafe breaks, and exploring this adorable town. Finally, we returned to Frankfurt, where we loved the cute area of Romerberg, the Staedel Museum, and the Aplelwein restaurants.

Sustainable travel
Respecting the planet and all those that inhabit it

Travel impacts the world around us, and is profoundly impactful to us as individuals. I do my best to work with companies that have sustainability initiatives, focus on supporting local cultures and businesses, and seek greener options when possible.

I want to help others experience how a well-planned trip deepens relationships and better connects you to the world.
