Locations:
English is the of?cial language of the British Isles, however several regional languages are also spoken, including: Scots, Scottish Gaelic, Welsh, Irish, and Cornish. Galway is one such city in which you may hear Irish. Many of the city signs are bilingually written in both Irish and English, and Irish language television and radio are becoming more and more common. Galway is a very walkable city of cobblestone streets, where it's easy to find a traditional pub and listen to live Irish folk music.

Dublin, as the capital of Ireland, boasts a more international and bustling atmosphere than Galway. Even still, Dublin often feels like a small town with a big heart. The city is also becoming a cultural center of Europe, and economic prosperity has attracted people from across the globe. Young people have flocked to the city, and half of the population of “Dubs” is under 30 years old. Despite the city's newfound multiculturalism, you'll still find the quintessential Irish experience you're seeking.

Edinburgh is a quirky mix of historic meets modern. Life is booming here in Scotland, which means you'll walk along cobblestone streets and gaze upon cutting-edge, modern architecture. You'll step into a wifi hotspot with the Edinburgh Castle as your backdrop. The city is also making waves for its commitment to "green" and sustainable practices. You'll never be far from Edinburgh's expansive parks and craggy cliffs, where you can take in amazing views, have a picnic, or just relax and enjoy the great outdoors. Centrally located in one of the most beautiful countries in Europe, Edinburgh is easily accessible, with air, train, and bus travel close at hand.

A hotspot for art, fashion, film, history, music, theater, and nightlife, London is an experience in itself. Explore the many diverse markets across the city, including the punk-rock-inspired Camden market and colorful Portobello Road. Visit the Globe Theatre to see some of Shakespeare’s most famous works performed live. Many of London’s museums are free and house some of the most renowned works of art and artifacts. Cruise down the River Thames or find a rooftop with a sweeping view of the spectacular city below. As the saying goes, coined by famous author Samuel Johnson, “When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life.”
