My Experience with Ireland Luxury Tours Last Fall

picture from ireland luxury tours fall 2014Last October, I took my vacationing to the next level. Most of the time, I like to travel light so I can backpack around the local spots, crash wherever I feel like and not have to worry too much about the things I bring with me. Usually it’s a backpack full of a few changes of clothes, toiletries and a journal along with some key survival items, which are another topic. I booked with an Ireland luxury tours company that is run by people who are natives to Ireland and know all the sweet local spots and the touristy spots around the country as well. I went this route as a treat to myself since I had a pretty good year financially in 2014 plus I have some Irish blood. Not that I know anyone there but it is good to at least travel the land or your ancestors. Which is particularly why I started writing in this blog, to help people reconnect with their ancestry and to make the world a smaller place.

My Luxury Irish Vacation Exploits

While on my tour, I had many options for recreation and sightseeing. But my driver always gave me the very best and Maurice, who works there, gave me some great ideas on where to visit. So with that in mind, I let go of my own hopes and expectations only to realize they were shooting “too low.” My driver insisted we visit Kylemore Abbey, which I had honestly never heard of. Boy was I surprised by the overwhelming nostalgia and beauty of this place. It gave me a sense of pride that I had some Irish blood in my veins. And the smells of the air were somehow unique to the area, smells I had never sensed before and probably never will. Sure, there was freshly cut grass, but there are other flowers, herbs and trees that are unique to the area which bring a sweet smelling incense – type of nostril luxury to the senses that I have seldom appreciated in such depth.

Throughout this blog, I will reference my trip to Ireland many times I’m sure. I only hope that in reading this, you are as interested in visiting your land of heritage, wherever that might be, sooner now than later.

Traveling the World, one day at a time

Ken LucasI’ve been to every continent except for Antarctica, but it’s on my to-do list. I figured that writing about my adventures in meaningful ways might inspire other people to make the world a smaller place in their own minds by doing some traveling of their own. Whether it’s a road trip through your own countryside or a plane or boat ride to another place on the planet, traveling is one of the truly great things an individual can do for themselves as well as a gift and an heritage to pass along to their children.

Traveling in Europe

I have enjoyed traveling all over the world, but I’m going to be writing more about my experiences in Europe to begin with. The European nations are beautiful and always full of surprises. You may run into a local sheepherder or a celebrity. You might see an animal you’ve never seen before or you may meet the love of your life. It’s always an adventure, and I invite you to also share yours with me here. Thank you so much for stopping by and having a read. Ken

Why Wall Decals Are So Traveler Friendly

woman sitting near wall decal in apartmentIt can be hard to make traveler’s apartment or a rented home feel like your own. Because most leases have a number of different restrictions, there’s a very good chance that you might wind up with boring white walls that are free of pictures.

However, the solution to this problem isn’t to break your lease. No, your best option is to hang up wall decals instead of pictures. They can add a lot of visual interest to a room, and the right decals can really help you to reflect your taste and personality.

There are all kinds of decals, from stickers that look more like artwork to decals that contain quotes to decals that can change the texture of a wall. Some of them are minimalist and simple, while others are very colorful. It’s up to you to figure out which style you like best.

You may be nervous about putting decals like this up on your wall, but you don’t have to be. They’re made with a type of vinyl that keeps them from sticking to the surface of the wall. When you peel them off, it’ll look like they were never there in the first place.

Finding the right wall decal is easy

Another thing you might worry about is that you’ll only be able to use these decals for a limited amount of time. After all, a lot of people don’t plan to be in their apartment on a long-term basis. Thankfully, this isn’t something you need to worry about either.

When you’re moving, you can simply peel up your decal and take it to your new place. From there, you can hang it up on the wall, as good as new. You can also easily move it from place to place if you want to try out something different.

Some people worry that these decals will be too expensive for them. After all, a lot of people live in an apartment because they’re on a limited budget. However, decals tend to be incredibly affordable. Even the highest quality decals can be purchased at a budget friendly price.

Another great thing that decals offer is customization. You can make your decals exactly what you want them to be. You can go for a cool vintage look, a chic distressed look, or just get decals of your favorite quotes or celebrities. The choice is up to you.

There are so many online stores that sell wall decals, and you can really shop around until you find exactly what it is you’re looking for. You can afford to be picky, and you can get your decals sent straight to your home. There’s no need for you to waste any gas!

If you want to customize and decorate your apartment, you’ll definitely want to look into vinyl wall stickers. There are so many different styles out there, and they can help you make any apartment feel like it’s your own. Best of all, you won’t have to worry about getting your security deposit back.
