Phil and Carol Explore Santiago Chile
Carol and I flew to Atlanta and then took a red-eye from Atlanta to Santiago, Chile. Upon arrival, we checked into our hotel and then hit the town by foot. As usual, we find the best way to get a feel for a city is by walking the streets, eating in the local establishments and watching the locals. 

Santiago is the capital and biggest city of Chile. It is a city of some 7.5 million people, clean, safe and friendly. If we needed some directions, there was always a local more than happy to give us some guidance.

It was just past noon as we walked and realized we were getting hungry since we hadn’t had anything since that supreme “breakfast” served on the airplane. So, we stopped by a small café on the street only to learn they didn’t start serving lunch until one o’clock. So, Carol and I pulled out chairs and decided it was time for breakfast!

Exploring the Emerald Island
with Brendan Vacations
by Lila Shimizu

I traveled with Brendan Vacations on a Guided tour with some locally hosted experiences added to it. This was a nice combination to see a smaller area like Dublin and then explore the country of Ireland
Dublin is a great walking city, it is best not to have a car in the city. The private passenger vehicles are only allowed in the city center during certain times, leaving public transportation to have full access. The trip started off by meeting my local host, George. He is a retired driver and tour director. We chatted in the hotel lobby, where he reviewed my Dublin itinerary with me, gave me insight into the city and answered any questions I had. This helped give me the security and confidence to navigate the city on my own.
Besides plenty of free time, I had a hop-on/hop-off bus pass, which is a great way to get your bearings in the city. I also scheduled a private car and driver for a half day tour of Newgrange.
Newgrange is a passage tomb that dates back to the Stone Age. It is said to be older than Stonehenge and the Great Pyramids of Giza! During the Winter Solstice the sun lines up with a roof-box above the entry, and it slowly extends to the rear of the chamber lighting the whole room. Some of the locals I had met hadn’t even been here before.
I felt like I learned a lot more about the destination by having George and a driver with me. They were able to give different commentary on what we saw. George provided me with facts and highlights, and my driver was able to offer more local insight.
