This has ‘trip of a lifetime’ written all over it. With this amazing offer I have found on Vayama.ie and Trivago.ie, you and a friend could be exploring three magnificent cities this year; Vancouver, Seattle and Portland. So throw caution to the wind and create some memories that will stay with you forever this year
The first stop on your journey will be see you spending 4 nights in my favourite Canadian city. Canada’s west coast is home to one of the greatest skylines I have ever seen. You could spend a year there and I guarantee you would still not be tired of the place. Taking a stroll down town through its many modern streets, you can most definitely feel the sense of optimism that exists amongst its inhabitants. Your hotel for this leg of your journey will be the magnificent Kingston Hotel which has a score of 4/5 out of 237 reviews on TripAdvisor. The location is perfect and it is only a five minute walk until you find yourself in the city centre.
Your urge to make the most of your hours will see you sleepless in Seattle. This is another magnificent city with even Americans themselves admitting there is a certain quality to it that makes it stand out as one the most unique cities in all of North America. Taking in a Major League Baseball game should definitely make your itinerary, just to see the amazing Safeco Field stadium but also to get a feel for the American way of life. You will be spending three nights in the convenient HI-Seattle at the American hotel which has a very good reputation, backed up by a high rating of 4/5 from 175 reviews on TripAdvisor.
The last leg of your journey will see you spend 4 fun filled nights in Portland, Oregon. Admittedly, I have a bit of a sweet tooth so when I discovered Ken’s Artisan Bakery, it’s safe to say we were a match made in heaven. The last hotel of your journey will be the convenient Hostelling International. It has a very good reputation among its past customers and it has gathered a rating of 4/5 on TripAdvisor from 148 reviews. There is so much to enjoy in this city and like Seattle and Vancouver, the transport systems are excellent so getting around will not be any issue.
All your accommodations and flights have to be booked separately with this deal. Your outbound flight will leave Dublin, Ireland at 13:00 arriving in Vancouver at 18:40 that evening. After all your gallivanting is complete, you will leave Vancouver at 20:50 on 5/10/2015 arriving back in Dublin at 20:20 the next evening.
There are several ways to go about getting between each city but the easiest way is probably to rent a car; which you can do for a very cheap price of only about €36 per day. Crossing the border should not be an issue as long as you carry your passport obviously and pay your small tourist visa fee for the United States. For your own piece of mind I have included a link about this info here.
This is a holiday that will last for a lifetime in your memory, all the hard work is done and now all you have to do is book ;). So follow the links below and book today to experience some of the majestic cities of North America’s west coast in 2015.
