With today's fast paced pace, things are so busy and rushed that we are bound to miss out on the simpler pleasures of life. Often, the best way to experience more is to slow down, take the time to watch and listen, and be prepared to pause and wait. But for that we have to run.
The ideal destination for walking and hiking is Ireland. From the stunning coastlines of Donegal and Antrim to the rolling countryside and picturesque mountains of Kerry. For those in the know, Ireland is a well-kept secret – stunning views and away from the crowds. You won't be walking down the aisle with an alligator with other people.
