There are so many places to see and not enough time to see them all.
I love to see different places and explore them on foot to get a feel for the place. We normally prefer to visit different places than go back to the same place time and time again. There are two exceptions to this: Venice- we love the faded decadence, the thousand's of alleyways to explore, getting off the beaten track, eating where the locals eat, spritz al bitter.
The Beara peninsula in Ireland is another special place where we have been lucky enough to stay in a friend's cottage several times. Absolutely gorgeous, 4 acres on Bantry Bay with the mountains behind. Heaven - total peace and calm. Then of course there is the Guinness, the seafood and the people. If you are ever lucky enough to visit you must read McCarthy's bar, Castletownbere is the home of the 'best bar in the world' according to the author.
