Hello! I am a 37yo Canadian (BC woo!) who's smitten with vacations. My husband and I love visiting beautiful new places (Ireland is in my Top 5 Places I'd Rather Be), settling in, exploring the surroundings, and chillin' with the locals. We're pretty low-key people who appreciate a relaxed and quiet atmosphere, with a good pub thrown in for good measure. Our idea of bliss is an ice cold beer on the back deck, playing with our dogs, and reading a good book on the beach. Informal hoity-toity hotels and tourist traps don't do it for us; we'd rather immerse ourselves in the culture and get to know the "real" place.
