Galway and Dublin, Ireland (“More Castles, Natural Beauty and Guinness”)

As you move north along the western coast of Ireland, the scarcity of tourists and the increase in breathtaking scenery are inversely correlated. You’ll bear witness to stunning landscapes and castles which tell stories of love. You’ll also find long stretches of absolutely nothing. And at the end, leaving out of Dublin provides an opportunity to explore my guilty pleasure in foreign countries: trying the local Chinese restaurant.
