MURMANSK: The Northernmost City in the Arctic Circle.

Murman 4

Not everyone can say that they’ve traveled to the top of the world, but if you’re in Russia, then you’ve got a better chance than most.

Located in the far north of Russia, Murmansk experiences extremely cold and long winters that last most of the year, a literal definition of a winter wonderland.

A place where even the Trans-Siberian rail ends, Murmansk is a feat by itself. A perfectly livable city with a fascinating history and beautiful nature to match.

HKIlsland Hero Shot

Did you know there is another side of Hong Kong besides its busy cityscape? When visiting Hong Kong, make sure to visit the Outlying Islands of Hong Kong for the hiking trails and their awesome scenery, a preview of the laid-back side of Hong Kong life, and for general great outdoor fun.

Apart from the best well-known Lantau Island where the Hong Kong Disneyland is situated at, there’re other outlying islands which can be experienced by day trip and very convenient.

Our boys loved the family hiking trail in Lamma, exploring the mountains and the fishing village of Tai O in Lantau Island. Make sure to have an extra time to explore the UNESCO Global Geopark of Hong Kong.

Here are the four experiences we highly recommend on your next trip to Hong Kong with your family (and how to get there easily):

KILKEA CASTLE: A Castle Birthday for My Queen (and our First Impressions of Ireland)! @KilkeaCastle

TBEX Summit-17.jpg

In Castledermot, County Kildare, Ireland (one hour away from Dublin), you’ll find KILKEA CASTLE. It’s a majestic 12th century castle that’s been transformed into a luxury hotel.

We celebrated Rache’s birthday in this beautiful place–befitting of my queen and love of my life–on our first-ever trip to Ireland. It was really magical and definitely one of the best travel experiences we’ll cherish forever. 

Here is a photo essay of our stay at Kilkea Castle…

 

The-Kilkea-Castle-Experience

Once the medieval stronghold of the Fitzgeralds, earls of Kildare, the Castle was built by Hugh de Lacy for one of Strongbow’s Norman Noblemen, Walter de Riddlesford. Today it stands proudly ready to extend a five-star welcome to travelers from around the globe.
 
Set on 180 acres of its own wonderful woodland, gardens and golf course, Kilkea Castle enchants from the moment you drive down the beech-lined avenue overlooking the Killeshin Hills, only minutes from the ancient Mullaghreelan Woods.” (Kilkea Castle Website)
