As a native Beijinger, I lead a two day quick tour in Beijing city area for my US good friends early this April. It is my first time being a local tour guide to foreigners so everything was new and fresh to me. I found the experience was very valuable and interesting, so I wrote it down and am sharing it with any foreign travelers who are planning a trip to Beijing, especially those who are planning a short trip either for sightseeing or for the coming 2008 Olympics. I hope it will be a helpful guide and that you find the information useful.

When we travel for surfing, naturally we expect to experience not just a delightful surfing but a good accommodation as well. When you go to Bundoran, expect a colorful atmosphere that will bound to make your holiday more delightful than you first expected. Not only do you get the chance to surf at one of the best surfing spots Ireland can offer, but you can have the chance to witness the other side of the famous Irish culture.

It is definitely advisable to invest as much time as you can into getting to know about the town you are moving to. This will no doubt help you settle there better.

So make sure you know what’s where in the town. Do make sure you get a place to live not too far from the work joint. Many companies are located on the outskirts of town.
