Ring of Kerry Island, Ireland
One of the greatest things about visiting Ireland is that spending money in euros is an easier transition than spending money in pounds and the Irish are some of the most friendly individuals you’ll meet all over the world.

The Czech Republic is often underrated even though it is extremely beautiful and has many different historical amenities, food, architecture, beer and fabulous Christmas markets.

It’s also relatively easy to get to Prague from other European airports, making it a great trip off the beaten path!
