If You Could Make Someone’s Bucket List Dreams a Reality, Would You?

If you could make someone’s bucket list dreams a reality, would you? It’s time! Click on this link and vote as many ways as possible. By voting, you will be part of making all of my bucket list dreams come true.

Some people create a bucket list because they are dying, I created one because I want to live! 

Six months, six continents, ALL EXPENSES PAID, my choice of destinations, and MyBBB$50,000 cash when I return. Does it get any better than that?

With 30 days until entries close, I am currently in 2nd place in My Destination’s Biggest, Baddest Bucket List! There is a lot of contest left though and I’d like to remain at the top of the pack going into the next round. I’ve been working hard to maintain my status, gaining interviews with the Cape Breton Post and the Halifax Herald, but I still need your regular votes.

Cead Mile Failte at Tig Cóilí’s in Galway, Ireland

Traditional Irish music 7 nights a week, young, friendly, good-looking staff, and a great atmosphere make Tig Cóilí in Galway, Ireland one of my favorite finds during my European trip.

Tig Cóilí is situated on Mainguard Street at the end of Shop Street in Galway, Ireland and is always filled to the brim like the great Guinness that they serve. Continue reading

Top 10 Favorite Cities Visited

With 33 countries under my belt, I’ve experienced some of the most amazing cities that the world has to offer. From great beaches, climate, friendly people, personal interests, world-famous attractions, architecture, history, and culture, there are many different factors that make a city great, let alone top ten!

#6 Dublin, Ireland – Home of The Guinness Storehouse!

With world-renowned nightlife, literature, history and so much more, I never wanted to leave Dublin. During my stay, I was able to  drink like an Irishman at Marlborough Hostel, discover the story of iconic drinks at The Guinness Storehouse, trace Dublin’s literary tradition at the Dublin Writers Museum, and follow the disturbing history of Kilmainham Gaol. As an English teacher with Cape Breton, Nova Scotian, roots, there are few better things in life than great literature and history all washed down by the perfect pint of beer. What more could I ask for? Continue reading

Roll out the Red Carpet Please…

I thought about what we could do for our last day in Ireland after three weeks of non stop drinking, traveling, sleeping in tents and cars, and about 3 hours of rest a night. The best I could come up with was the movies. We hadn’t done anything with a hint of normalcy during the entire trip. A day at the movies was just want we needed, but we ended up getting a lot more than we paid for.

I was going to change from the clothes that I wore the day before, but I no longer saw the point. Everything that I had with me was equally dirty, worn, and nasty. We were very familiar with being in dirty clothes. As we walked down the street, I noticed several other people that looked like they were wearing bar clothes. I assumed that they were doing the walk of shame that occurs after hooking-up at the bar the night before. Their presence made me feel better about myself. Continue reading
