Follow us as we explore small towns in Emilia Romagna, in the height of tourist season. You can still travel in the summer and avoid lots of tourists, by going to lesser-known regions and small towns.
Join us as we try something unusual: we spend an entire week in a castle! We have rented out Rincolisky Castle, on Roaring Water Bay in County Cork. We splurged on this elaborate place to stay, so we will be saving on our food budget by shopping and cooking from farmer's markets. In County Cork in summer this is no hardship! Cork's foodie culture is alive and well and locally sourced, affordable food is easy to come by.
Join us as we take the final research trip before we publish our foodie's guide to small town Ireland. For two weeks, we'll be hopping all over the island to find more gastro pubs, unusual places to stay, and sights to include in our travel guide.
"Hidden" and affordable places in Counties Wicklow, Kilkenny, Cork, Dublin, Kerry, Clare, Down, and Westmeath.
We've rented out an entire 12th century medieval tower in San Gimignano!
