re: Must-Drinks in British Isles? - tccdc
[quote]If you do the Jameson tour in Dublin they'll ask at beginning for volunteers without telling you what you're volunteering for. Raise your hand to volunteer, it's to do a free tasting of Jameson vs other whiskies (a scotch, a bourbon, and one other). [/quote] Great tip...usually the other i...

re: Must-Drinks in British Isles? - tccdc
[quote]Perfect. Thanks for the heads up. I've also been told to check out Kyteler's Inn, which apparently has been around since the 1300s. Any take on that? [/quote] If you are pressed on time, i find it very similiar to the Brazen Head in Dublin which I believe is older. When you go in thes...

re: R.I.P. Baseball Tonight - tccdc
[quote]Granted, baseball isn't what it once was 15 or 20 years ago. [/quote] Baseball is in much better shape than 15-20 years ago, despite what ESPN wants us to think. Baseball Tonight with Ravech, Gammons and HR was great, but even more reason to stick with MLB channel...

http://britspub.com/ I was up there for work last year and came into this place for a pint, and ended up watch lawn bowling on top for a couple hours. They have teams, league, etc and it was a fun watch. [img]https://static1.squarespace.com/static/55771dc4e4b08842e8faff43/t/558370e6e4b088...

My go to list: * Tripadvisor - really go there for hotel advice (especially the tips section on where to ask for a room) and reviews on off the beaten path things * Rick Steves Walks - if I am travelling to a place I never been, his walks are really good for seeing a city's high points in a li...

re: Frankfurt Christmas Market - tccdc
[quote]Rather than Frankfurt, I'd go to Rothenburg ob der Tauber, Nurnberg, Stuttgart, & Esslingen (Medieval). They're only 2 hrs from Frankfurt. The first two you'll get some German history. Frankfurt, not so much.[/quote] Agreed, the Christmas Market is ok in Frankfurt, but compared to others, ...

re: Seoul, Beijing or Taipei? - tccdc
I love Seoul, but I would do Beijing. The problem with Seoul, is that you are essentially landing at Inchon and having to travel quite a bit to even get to Seoul and get back before check in. Taipei will not give you the sites you want to see in that short amount of time. Only downside to B...
