Dakar

The Cape Verde Peninsula sticks out westward into the Atlantic Ocean, reaching from the Old World to the New, harbouring the westernmost city on the African mainland: Dakar. A city that represents Africa's development better than almost any other, Dakar boasts the comforts and luxuries of modern living, while firmly keeping a grasp on its history and traditions. The bustling markets of downtown are juxtaposed with the laid-back pace of Île de Gorée and the surrounding beaches, making a visit to Dakar a fascinating experience of contrast.

As a remarkable county with a truly unique atmosphere, Galway – in the West of Ireland – gets under your skin like no other place in the world: it is dramatic, haunting and utterly wild, while the craggy countryside at times looks unforgiving, yet rich with a burst of colours. Galway has got great beaches, soaring mountains, lovely villages, fabulous pubs and some of the friendliest people in Ireland. The Gaeltacht area of County Galway offers an authentic insight into life through the Irish language, and the Aran Islands have a breathtaking beauty of their own.
