Seeing the Luck of the Irish First Hand

We are about to get you ready for an amazing, unforgettable and incredible adventure with our Ireland hiking tips. So, are you ready for it? Let’s go!


Rule number one when making plans to hike is to prepare for the weather, whether Ireland or any other intended destination in the world.

What we recommend you do is to check the average temperature and rainfall while making your plans for the trip. Also, you should confirm the weather forecast a week before traveling down there so you can adjust the things you are going to pack for the trip.

Bringing waterproof and windproof equipment is quite important (particularly jacket, quick drying trousers or light waterproof pants). Comfortable walking shoes or hiking boots are also important because some routes can become swampy or muddy. Do not forget your sunblock- it is useful for both sunny and windy days.

Ideally, hiking is best in Ireland during Spring to Autumn as Ireland enjoys long summer days and short winter days.

Trail Markings

Most of the routes recommended for hiking are properly marked and you’ll find a yellow walking man and an arrow on the signs to guide your ways. Always hold your maps and walking notes with you for moments when you are unsure of what route to take.

Essential Items

Aside from comfortable clothing and shoes that were mentioned above, there are some items or equipment you might need during your hiking holiday. Some of them are- hiking poles (if you are used to them), a backpack for your essentials such food, water, phone, camera, and wallet. A sun cap or wooly hat should be in your backpack too, same as hand gloves (in Spring and Autumn).

Farm Life

Most of the routes require passing across or near a private farmland, so you’ll likely encounter a flock of sheep and some other farm animals like cows or horses. So, always make the effort to close the gate behind you if you pass through any, in order to be in the farmers’ good books.

Here is a quick tip: f you check your walking notes to see if you’ll be passing villages or towns where you might get food and can’t find any, always pack a picnic to keep you going for your daily journey.

With these few tips in this hiking guide for Ireland, rest assured that you are covered during your vacation (if you follow them of course).

Traveling to Japan

One of the questions asked by most travelers is how to pack for a vacation in Japan. Therefore, we’ve arranged a really simple list of the best tips on how to pack for a vacation in Japan.  It comes from recent experience, as a few of us from my home state of Arizona went on a trip together to celebrate the 5 year anniversary of our Chandler tow truck business. These tips range from the obvious ones for experienced travelers to the most surprising ones.

Bring a pair of slip-on shoes.

Bring shoes that are really easy to slip on and off unless you love untying and lacing your shoes every minute, shoes that can slip on and off your feet easily are recommended. Most places in Japan like the ryokans (traditional inns), temples, restaurants and many izakayas require you to take your shoes off before entering. As a rule of thumb, when you see mats, you need to take your shoes off. In Japan, it is considered a little impolite to be barefoot as well, so you might want to bring one or two pairs of socks.

Depending on your travel plan, it is considered wise to bring walking shoes, comfortable ones of course. Tokyo is surprisingly a walkable city, and to enjoy some places such as Kyoto; there’s no better way to explore it than doing so on foot.

Pack as light as possible.

Packing lightly is really important if you are planning a trip to any country. Imagine having to navigate through the city with a heavy backpack, not fun yeah? For your own comfort, try to get a portable bag or suitcase.

Most of the travelers in Japan rely so much on Japan’s railway networks, and guess what? They don’t cater to travelers with so many luggages. You might be wondering- what exactly is a lot of luggage? Anything more than a backpack or duffel and a small suitcase (the airplane carry-on size) is considered to be a lot.

What to Wear

There is no need to go shopping for new clothes for your vacation in Japan. It’s better just to leave some space in your bag or suitcase so you can go shopping in Japan, the country where you’ll find some of the best-quality and most unique fashions in the world.

It is undeniable that the fashion standards in Japan are quite high, but that doesn’t mean you always have to dress up too. If you are more comfortable dressing casually, you’ll be totally okay in all situations; though you’ll have to dress accordingly if there’s a party, dinner or some special occasion.


Asides from your clothes, shoes and so on, there are some other miscellaneous items you’ll need during your vacation. They include:

  • Pocket Wi-Fi device. If this doesn’t sound exactly essential to you, it is still recommended to rent one. Wi-Fi in Japan isn’t as widespread as most people always think it will be.
  • Travel adapter
  • Sleep mask and rosewater mist  for a relaxing flight
  • Handkerchiefs and hand sanitizer
  • Little gifts from home. You can give these to your travel guides and other locals. Gifts are more appreciated in Japan than tips.
