#1) Whatever you do, never, ever, go on a bus trip. Especially a 10-day long bus trip. A 10-day bus trip with a bunch of retirees from Texas who won't shut up. (Kill me now!)
#2) Whatever you do, never, ever, go on vacation with your parents. I don't care if they're paying for it. I don't care if it's a "gift" for your graduation from college. Trust me, it's just not worth it.
#3) Never, ever, find yourself in Killarney during bike week. Unless, of course, you ride a Harley. In that case, you'll fit right in with this crowd.
#4) Never, ever, stay at a hotel that charges for wi-fi.
#5) Never, ever, drink five pints of Guinness, get into a fight with your brother, and then go back to your hotel and blog.
