A Weekend of Ships

I spent 3 days in Cork on a layover and decided to venture out to the surrounding areas. Cork is close to many port towns and I decided to start there. Cobh (pronounced 'cove') was the last port of call before the Titanic sank. During this time the city was called Queenstown and has always … Continue reading A Weekend of Ships

Wombats Hostel: Munich

Did you guy know I went to Germany during a layover? A lot of my coworkers then followed suit either to Munich like me or somewhere else. Even the ones who hated the long layovers in Dublin are looking forward to them. I feel like a trendsetter. Anyways I had 3 days open in Dublin … Continue reading Wombats Hostel: Munich

Blue Lagoon: Worth It?

In short: yes! Thanks for reading! Kidding. Though if that's all you needed, yes you should definitely go! It's pretty easy to access from the airport and the city center. Most people say that the Blue Lagoon is super touristy and it is but in my opinion, there's a reason things are very touristy and … Continue reading Blue Lagoon: Worth It?

M Montreal Hostel

It's been a while since I've been able to do a hostel review since I've been staying in hotels for work mostly. Hotels are nice, I stay in my own room in a 3 or 4 star joint with free breakfast, free late check out, and free transport to the airports. Sometimes they are far … Continue reading M Montreal Hostel

As the Leaves Change

Finally took my boyfriend out of the US. A six-hour drive from home and we had a weekend in Montreal, eating our weight in Poutine and getting our asses kicked in pool repeatedly by our new friend, Mitch. We stayed at M Montreal Hostel in Gay Village, not far from the port, and I think … Continue reading As the Leaves Change

Limerick Milk Market

I spent another day in Limerick after landing in Cork and taking a two hour taxi. While the taxi was big enough for all the crew, it was not the most comfortable to sleep in, so we expected to pass out correctly once we made it to the hotel. However, once we got out of … Continue reading Limerick Milk Market

A Tough Debate (Glasgow vs. Edinburgh)

After staying in Edinburgh a few times now, and knowing I will be returning a week from now, I decided to venture out of the city on my last layover and check out Glasgow, which is an hour train ride west. To me, there seems to be a rivalry between the two cities similar to … Continue reading A Tough Debate (Glasgow vs. Edinburgh)

A Day Off on the Block

Richie and I finally had a day off together where the weather wasn’t terrible and we wanted to take full advantage of it. We’d been talking about going to Block Island together since we started dating (close to four years ago!) and finally we were able to go! There are about five ferries leaving New … Continue reading A Day Off on the Block

Gift of Gab

My first trip to Cork saw all four of us cabin crew heading to Blarney Castle for the day. We landed in Shannon in the morning after an overnight flight and immediately taxied to Cork (about two hours). We planned to leave right for the bus stop to get there bright and early; however, we … Continue reading Gift of Gab

A Stroll Through the Kirkyard

The only thing I knew I wanted to do on my first trip to Edinburgh was to see the sites that inspired or influenced Harry Potter. I didn't know of any tours that I could join on my limited time frame nor was I totally interested in following others around as they tried to tell … Continue reading A Stroll Through the Kirkyard
