I have always enjoyed traveling, even if it meant sleeping in a tent when I was younger. I prefer hotels and cruise cabins now, but the motivation is the same...an adventure waiting to happen. Sometimes you will find me traveling with my husband and/or family. Sometimes I will travel alone, and sometimes I will travel with friends. I hope you find it entertaining to keep up to date with me as I explore the world around me. Warning...I like to take pictures of food so don't read if you're hungry. More adventures await...see ya soon...Amy.

We are staying at the Brooks Hotel on Drury Street here in Dublin, Ireland. This is a lovely hotel and became even more lovely when they upgraded both of our rooms at no extra cost to Junior Suites! I don't know what a regular room looks like, but these are fantastic!! We have towel warmers in the bathrooms and a little terrace balcony with a table and chairs. There is even a "pillow menu" to select a different pillow if you don't like the (2 each) down pillows they have already given you! Breakfast was delicious! There is a very well presented continental breakfast with cereals, pastries, fruit, etc. There is also a hot menu to order from, but we didn't take advantage of that. Breakfast was included in our rate, so we didn't eat breakfast anywhere else. This hotel is pretty swanky and way more than we are accustomed to, but fun to enjoy. They turned the beds down tonight and gave us a mint chocolate on our pillow....swoon.
