One of the best looking beaches on Inishmore. Still a little too cold in mid-summer to swim
Like to be active and explore ruins? See prehistoric forts, 300ft cliffs, a castle, ancient cemeteries and beaches all within a 2 mile radius? Inishmore in the Aran Islands, just off the coast of the University city, Galway, is inch for inch one of the most historically saturated sites in Ireland, and while it may also be saturated with tourists, if you choose to explore the island on bike, you will get a glimpse of the solitude of Inishmore.

A view of St. Canice’s Cathedral and the Round Tower in Kilkenny, Ireland
St. Canice’s Cathedral and the 9th century Round Tower are near the center of town in Kilkenny, Ireland. While not justifying more than an few hour visit, unless you plan to attend mass, the Gothic Cathedral and Round Tower are very impressive and create an atmosphere of antiquity. There is no charge to look around the property; a cemetery that feels more like a park. I am sure stopping by the area at night would give you an entirely different feeling.

Tough to fit the entire thing in a photograph, the Cathedral of Sevilla
The Cathedral of Sevilla (or Seville) is the largest gothic building in the world, and third largest church in the world. It’s impressive from the outside, but you can’t really get a good feel for its magnitude until you see the inside. The 16th century cathedral was built on top of a former mosque, giving it a unique style. One of the highlights of Sevilla, do not miss it.

Cornmarket, a nice place to start your walking tour of Ballinrobe, Ireland
Ballinrobe (Baile an Róba), located in County Mayo, Ireland, is a small historical town about 45km North of Galway. You can take the N84 by car, or try to catch one of the few buses that make a stop in the town. The bus is a local bus, so be prepared to make frequent stops. Also, the road the bus takes is narrow and windy, and unless you have iron guts or are capable of vomiting a controlled stream into a Pringles can like the girl sitting across from me, you should drive yourself. The town makes for a nice stop, but everything it has to offer can be seen in a leisurely hour or two.

The view standing in front of the Lincoln Cathedral
The Lincoln Cathedral in Lincoln, England has been a place people come to worship for almost a thousand years. Originally built in 1185, the Cathedral sits on the top of the Lincoln hill making it even more prominent a site in the Lincolnshire area. Featured in in the film "The Da Vinci Code", its easy to see why they chose the spot. Once the tallest building in the world, the Lincoln Cathedral still remains one of the largest Cathedrals in Europe.
