Peru Community Project

I really liked the community service trip since I was helping people of the area. It makes one feel good because you are sharing your abilities along with theirs in building something better for them. You also get to see a beautiful country and a different way of life.

Dingle Peninsula Walk

The Dingle Peninsula is one of the most spectacular regions on Ireland's West Coast. Moreover it is steeped in history, mythology and traditional Irish culture. There is no other landscape in Western Europe with the same density and variety of archaeological monuments. This mountainous finger of land, jutting into the Atlantic Ocean, has supported various tribes and populations for at least 6,000 years. It is impossible to visit the Dingle Peninsula and not be impressed by its archaeological heritage, which ranges from prehistoric times through the Early Christian period to the Middle Ages. There are plenty of small hamlets to enjoy good Irish cheer along the way and in the evenings you will stay at a selection of B&B's, chosen for their good character, location and excellent Irish breakfasts.
