The Counties of Ireland
Yes, we know our Irish neighbours arent part of Britain but because we think the country is marvellous we just had to feature it anyway. Coupled with the fact that, for our north American and Antipodean cousins, 'doing' the UK & Ireland at the same time is a no-brainer and to include it just made sense. Please no emails complaining that Ireland is not part of Britain - we know it isnt OK? On the positive side this is a very modern yet uniquely traditional country and people with a special brand of hospitality that is quite rightly world famous...
Exhilaration is that feeling you get just after a great idea hits you, and just before you realize what`s wrong with it. - Rex Harrison
