Wales is a wild and incredible destination, especially for travelers who enjoy a mixture of outdoor adventure and historical education.

My attempt to sum up #Amsterdam in one photo. It's stretching it for sure but it comes close. ;-)

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
 
Best Things to do in Dublin
http://theplanetd.com/best-things-to-do-in-dublin/

It’s St Patrick’s Day, and it’s one big party around the globe.
Nowhere celebrates it better than the land of Saints and Scholars, Ireland! If you are lucky enough to find yourself on the Emerald Island one day, you’ll come to realize that the Irish are the most welcoming people on earth.
We had never had so many people welcome us into their homes, pubs, and streets as we did in Ireland.
