Do you have any advice to offer up about the weather?:
“Prepare for we weather, but we were there during a heat wave. Don’t over pack!!!”

What are your favorite souvenirs you brought home?:
“Authentic wool items from Ireland, scarves, caps.”


Were there any unplanned parts of your trip that wound up turning into one of your favorite travel stories?:

“Worked with our Sales Rep, and reviewed her recommendations.”

Any advice for getting around? Using maps, GPS, following road signs, etc..:

“GPS is the best for getting around. Road signs are excellent. Just remember the slow lane is on the right.”

Any advice for the “roundabouts” or “circles” while driving?:

“Get in the left lane if your turn is the first exit, the right lane if a later exit.”

Please feel free to add ANY extra experiences, tips, notes, advice or stories you may have:

“London – If you decide to go to a show, book tickets online, avoid the kiosks in Piccadilly Circus”
