Safe Travels

I'm super excited that for the first time in years, my husband and I have planned a vacation. The top of our bucket list has always been Ireland, renowned for its stunning scenery, so we finally took the plunge and purchased our flights for this spring. Then came the truly hard part: choosing where to go. There are so many castles, geologic marvels, and quaint villages that we would love to investigate, but we also want to make sure we don't wear ourselves out trying to see everything. Finally, due in large part to help from Surfer, I've narrowed it down to these cannot-miss destinations:


Inserting images into a Surfer base map allowed us to narrow down our destinations to a handful of must-see attractions.

Using Google Maps for drive time in conjunction with Surfer's base symbology feature, I made sure we'll get plenty of hours out of the car every day.


Utilizing labeling with attributes and base symbology features in Surfer allowed me to map out how long we would be driving each day of our journey.

Please let me know if you have any suggestions for good places to stay or eat, or things we simply have to see while we're there. And wish us safe travels!
