''Some of us prefer the finer things in life. That's why we work hard all week, that's why we budget, to treat ourselves regularly. As with most things, you get what you pay for, If you try for a cut rate, second hand vacation you probably will not be happy with the results. If you're the type of person who spares no expense then you travel in the lap of luxury - the finest meals, the highest thread count and the most exclusive itineraries.'' Matthew Moretti

The Irish Adventure | Visit Cork, Ireland
I just 'luuuve' it when I'm visiting a new place and it impresses me to another extend. Not really planning on writing about Cork in my travel-business to Ireland this week, but the people's passion for life, the hospitality and the good aura of the city didn't allowed me not to. By chance I have booked an impressive hotel, 'The Kingsley', had a generous driver, a long waited afternoon at the SPA and the yummiest dinner on 2016 by far at 'Il Padrino' Ristorante (Cork City is having the fame of decent restaurants) . Let me tell you one thing about 'Il Padrino', I haven't had 'goosebumps' eating since Santorini to be honest (not even on South of France). Absolutely fantastic, something that gives me a good feeling thinking on my yachting lifestyle experience this Summer on Amalfi Coast. Spiedini, fresh mozzarella di buffalo and a Sicilian Pinot Grigio sent me to the Moon and back. Ah, not to forget the complimentary frozen limoncello. Finally understood that doesn't cost you anything to pay more attention to your daily living details. Read more...
First impression: loved Cork, very cosy city even if the taxi driver was yawning while singing on the way back (laugh out loud).
