DIY: Ireland

Family vacation – the words mean something different for everyone. Some people associate it with lots of booze and headaches while others think of arguments. In the Marino family, our vacations are mostly full of beaches, pasta, booze and some disagreements, being that we are Italian we have some strong opinions. For 2016’s big trip was decided as Ireland. A bit of a different type of trip than our normal excursions. As the resident traveler, event planner and moderate control freak I took on the planning.
