Dublin, Ireland - Dublin, the fair city, invites you to wander the streets trod by Joyce, Yeats and Oscar Wilde. Drop in at pubs with mahogany bars and stained glass. In the Trinity College Library, feast your eyes on the illuminated 9th-century Book of Kells. Sample the world's most famous stout at the original Guinness Brewery. And, of course, there are plenty of shopping opportunities — from a souvenir shillelagh to Waterford crystal.

Alesund, Norway - The picturesque Art Nouveau town of Älesund has a beautiful setting across several islands stretching out into the sea, and is situated at the very entrance to the world heritage listed Geirangerfjord. The town is also an excellent starting point for round trips to some of Norway's most popular tourist attractions. Ålesund is internationally renowned for its unique architecture in the Art Nouveau style. The town was devastated by fire a winter's night in 1904, laying 850 houses in ashes and leaving 10.000 people homeless. During a remarkably short period of time, the new Ålesund was rebuilt in the unique architectural style, especially significant from 1890-1910, with a myriad of turrets, spires and medieval ornaments. The Art Nouveau Centre portrays the town's unique position in Norwegian architectural history.
Bergen, Norway - A key member of the medieval Hanseatic League of Merchants, Bergen has had plenty of practice combining commerce with community. In this delightful city, you will find pleasure in the Bryggen waterfront district and marketplace, or travel out of town for some great backcountry hikes. On the shores of Nordnes Lake is TroldhaugenÂ—the historic home of composer Edvard Grieg.
Geiranger, Norway - Enclosed on both sides by precipitous walls of rock, Geirangerfjord is one of Norway's most striking. While you're there, you'll want to visit the tiny octagonal church, ascend Mt. Dalshibba for a panormic view of the mountains, lakes, and waterfalls, or stop at the Tystig branch of Europe's most enormous glacier.
Olden, Norway - As well as being surrounded by immense natural beauty - think emerald lakes, towering mountains and cascading waterfalls - this fjord village of approximately 500 inhabitants once hosted American portrait and landscape artist John Singer Sargent (1856-1925), whose "Singerheimen" home is about a mile from the pier.Olden is mainly a gateway to outdoor activities, such as fishing or boating in the chilly teal-colored, glacier-fed waters of Oldevatnet Lake.
Belfast, Northern Ireland - So much of Ireland's political history is tied up in Belfast that many visitors are surprised to find that it is also a modern city, blending old and new effortlessly as the troubles of its pass fade into history. A day trip away are the Giants' Causeway (a series of stone pillars that extends to Scotland) and the spectacular Antrim coast.
