About the Host, Mary
From Ireland, interested in Museums, Art Galleries, antiquing , shopping in general especially local markets, and sightseeing. I enjoy travelling and staying in local areas and apartments instead of bland Hotels. Love to cycle around new places around cities and countryside areas outside the touristy hot spots.
