I love talking about travel with friends, and recently Chris Christensen gave me the opportunity to talk about my trip to Belfast, Northern Ireland, with a lot of people as a guest on his podcast, Amateur Traveler.

    Nice interview. I was really surprised by Belfast when I visited last year. It was a great place to spend a few days.

      I wish we would have had one more day there. The first day there was more for travel and then recovering from a hectic week, so it feels like we lost what we might have been able to see with another day. I was pleasantly surprised by Belfast and like it a lot.

        I was there three days. One day for a day tour to the Giants Causeway and two days in the city. That was the perfect amount of time. I also did the Titanic Museum and Black Taxi tour. They also had a street performer festival going on which was interesting.

    The Black Taxi tour sounds really appealing to me because of how much you can personalize it. Will definitely check it out when I venture to Belfast.

      It’s definitely worth the time and money, a real value add to your vacation. I like the ability to cover an area in more depth (like we did for the murals) rather than seeing more. But others want a good overview for follow up later. That’s why I like the customization of it all. Hope you do too.
