Review: Guinness Storehouse experience

Guinness Storehouse visit

One thing Rick and I knew we wanted to do as soon as our Dublin trip was finally happening was drink as much Guinness as possible and preferably have one of those pints at the Guinness Storehouse! Luckily for us, our tour guide organized a trip there and bought us tickets for a visit. I

Travel itinerary: One day in Edinburgh

Review: Ghost Tours of Quebec

Quebec City at night
