Dublin is, like london, a great city to visit as there is lots to see and do, and the people are probably friendlier. Dublin is also though, the starting point for some wonderful cruises to destinations far and wide.
Cruising is the epitome of what a holiday should be for many people - totally relaxing. On a cruise you can do as much or as little as you like. The big advantage is that you get to see different places in the world without the hassle associated with getting from one to the other. There is no waiting around at airports with flights sometimes delayed, and the tiresome business of airport security. If you wished to visit four different places in the world in two weeks by air, how many different airports do you think you would be waiting in? On a cruise ship you are gently wafted along, breathing in the fresh sea air instead of recirculated aircraft cabin air, and you have a choice of swimming and sporting activities to keep you occupied along the way, not to mention fine cuisine served at civilised times, and not as and when it is convenient for the operator as on an airplane.
You can find out more about cruises from Ireland here but basically you have the world at your doorstep, including Scandinavia, Russia, the Mediterranean, the Caribbean, and more. (more...)
How many of us would like to live, one wonders, in a green environment, with friendly people, and roads relatively uncluttered by traffic? This is a dream lifestyle for many of us, crammed into concrete cities with traffic fumes, noise, and general indifference to our fellow man; yet there is such a place and it’s called Ireland.
A more relaxed pace of life is still possible in places like Ireland, where the attitude to life is somewhat different and less stressful. The Irish are more about enjoying life than the pursuit of money for its own sake. The country has of course seen a recent economic downturn but is gradually fighting its way back and the general standard of living is not bad there. House prices fell which makes it easier for anyone looking to move to Ireland, or move back there as many ex-patriots do. You can search online and easily get a removal quote to ireland from UK at reasonable rates.
The priorities in life are either what we make them or what are forced on us by circumstances, or even just by peer pressure. Some people, if not many people these days, seem to live their life at a run, never pausing to stake stock or even appreciate some of the finer things in life such as enjoying the company of friends or the natural beauty of God’s scenery. The relentless pursuit of profit for the sake of acquiring a bigger car seems to have become an epidemic and perhaps we have moved away from our natural roots too far, and too fast. It seems self-evident that man was not meant to live the way many do today – from bed to office computer, and back again. (more...)
