Don’t forget to visit local locales

It’s nice to be a tourist in a foreign city. It’s way better to get a native feel for the places you visit. Here are a few of my most notable experiences.

Johnnie Fox’s is in Glencullen on top of the Dublin mountains, as stated on their website “Johnnie Fox’s is one of Ireland’s oldest and most famous traditional Irish pubs.” Just getting there was an experience in itself as I felt we were driving completely vertical up the mountain. The sheep that dotted the steep mountains made me laugh. The warm locals and the hospitable Irish family we went with had us laughing even harder. Couldn’t understand most of what they were saying but the Irish were the warmest of the Europeans I have met thus far.

Figueres, is in the province of Girona, Catalonia, Spain. It is the birthplace of artist Salvador Dali, and houses the Teatre-Museu Gala Salvador Dalí, a large museum designed by Dalí himself. It is a small old town Spanish locale. Only a couple hours outside Barcelona and accessible by train from Barcelona, it is worth the trip.
