As predicted, I’ve encountered another electric shower. This time, it’s at a bed and breakfast in Wales. And this one looks like it’s ready to party!

What’s the perfect packing list? Opinions vary, but here’s what’s worked for me for the past four months.

Amazing cliffs, a stunning beach, and my first school bus ride in decades. Welcome to Wales!

A new experience in a beautiful old home in Galway. It’s my first shower that won’t work until you press the power button.

The Aran Islands are an easy day trip from Galway. My visit to the biggest island, Inishmore, was fantastic and included a stop at the spectacular DĂșn Aengus.

Another day, another coach tour through Ireland! This time, I took the Cliffs of Moher & Burren Tour, which included a moment of zen with a herd of sheep.

I love a morning stroll while a town is serene and everyone’s still asleep. Here are some photos from my Galway walk that included a big surprise!
