We found a Pub and ordered great food and drink!
There's a good Pub on every corner...

I think we are on Grafton Street in downtown Dublin.

The Old Bag

My husband and I do love to travel...although not much time for it these very harried days.
The adventure of the trip is sometimes marred by my lack of skill at packing....I always pack too much! My fears run the gamut but the underlying fear is I won't have the appropriate clothing at the appropriate moment. My husband, on the other hand can pack lightly and go quickly!
I have found this web page by Doug Dyment who has done some serious research on the packing quandary and it is a wonderful source of information for the One bag Rule...very apropos considering some airlines charging extra for more than one bag these days. I encourage you to check it out while I start practising the art of packing lightly!

My New Travel Blog!

My very first post...on my brand new Travel Blog! This blog will be all about my travels and great deals on travel now that I have started my new job as a travel agent! I will have my old job as business owner of a construction company but this will be my passion!
I decided to do this because I love to travel and favorite hobbies! A wise friend said always plan your next vacation before the one you are on ends...that way you always have something to look forward to...
So...I am going to start planning and I invite you to come along...even if it's just on my blog!
We have booked a cruise out of Tampa in December and are very much looking forward to is a long weekend...which is easy for us as small business owners!
But, I am curious as to what most people prefer
A short vacation get-away? or
Two weeks or longer get-away?
