ROAD TRIPPIN’ IRELAND

So for anybody who knows me, you’ll know I’ve basically been a broken record ever since I’ve returned from Ireland. I’m sure my friends and family are pretty sick of my non stop blabbering at this point but go figure, everybody I know suddenly wants to visit Ireland!! When my family visited, the hardest thing…

PORTO, PORTO, PORT WINE!

You know those cities that you just instantly and obsessively fall in love with? I can only count a few of them, and Porto is definitely one of them. Surprise surprise, the Portuguese city was also just named the Best European Destination for 2017! As an architecture student, I was pretty much a broken record,…

GALWAY GIRL

Have you ever had one of those moments where you’re completely overcome with happiness and just in awe and admiration of the world around you? That was me this entire weekend. Besides Guinness and potatoes, I have to admit I knew very little about Ireland before arriving. After this weekend, I cannot be a bigger tourism advocate of this…

DUBLIN’ THE MADNESS

This past weekend, we finally made it up to Ireland’s capital and the home of Guinness – Dublin. As much as I love Cork’s small town charm, this city girl missed the bright lights of a big city. Dublin sure did it for me. The first thing that struck me about the capital was just…

MY COLORFUL PASSPORT

It’s been a while since my last post… again. Why the title? Well, incase anybody has been wondering why I haven’t made it to Europe yet (since the title of my blog is Aditi Takes Europe, after all), it boils down to one mega important document – my passport. If anybody has an Indian passport, I…

CRAIC ON THE COAST

So, it’s been a while since my last post. Apologies to my fan base. Just kidding. With the Irish weather being so temperamental and such, it seemed to have got the better of me the past week. You might be thinking, well it’s really not that cold. You’re right – it never really goes below 3…

It’s Pronounced “Cove”

Another week in Ireland is in the books! This past weekend, we visited another seaside town called Cobh (pronounced “Cove”). Interesting fact: Cobh was the last stop of the Titanic before it sunk. As soon you exit the train station, it’s clear that a big part of Cobh’s tourism industry is driven by the events of…

Seaside Towns, Cliffs, and the Atlantic

I honestly did not realize how beautiful Ireland was and how much there was to see. Where do we start? Well, we first check the weather. Incase you don’t know, Ireland’s climate is known for its damp and wet weather. Fortunately, we’ve had pretty dry weather since arriving. The Irish don’t buy it, though. Every one…
