Valkenburg Wander

Valkenburg Wander

We didn't plan on going to Valkenburg, but we heard it was the local place to go for pubs and people watching. It turns out there was a lot more to see and do, and we were surprised and disappointed to return home to our Netherlands Lonely Planet guide and see this charming place described simply as, "an over-commercialized tour bus destination." That's a travesty to us! We had such a lovely time there, so we'd like to introduce you to the real Valkenburg.

Dublin Wander

Dublin Wander

After Brian completed his Ireland bike tour, I joined him in Dublin to celebrate. We had one full day there to explore, and I was determined to see as much as possible. I picked out six sights I hoped to fit in, planned a very efficient route based on the hours of each establishment, and we headed out to see if we could fit it all in!
