The first step to take when arriving in a new destination (besides going through passport control, only necessary in international destinations) is figuring out how to get from the airport to your accommodation. City buses, trains and taxis are the traditional go-to transit options, but some locations have transportation specifically dedicated to carting residents and visitors to and from the airport.

Dublin is one such city with Airlink buses that cover the route from the airport to the center of town without stopping every few minutes. The green Airlink Express bus has two appropriately named routes: the 747 and the 757.

The 747 bus route connects Dublin Airport with Heuston Rail Station with stops at the Convention Centre Dublin, O’Connell Street, Trinity College, Temple Bar and High Street, among others. Airlink 757 departs from the airport and includes the stops mentioned above, plus Pearse Rail Station, Merrion Square, St. Stephen’s Green, Leeson Street and more.

A one-way adult ticket costs €7 (approximately $8.25) while a return/round-trip ticket costs €12 ($14). Airlink also sells a combination pass that includes a 48-hour city tour card for €23 ($27) with a one-way ticket and €27 ($32) with a return ticket.

The Redneck Games

One of Georgia’s greatest cultural gifts might be coming to an end. The Redneck Games, which began in 1996, have seen a dip in attendance in recent years. A lack of sponsors means many of us might never know the joys of “bug zapping by spitball” unless an influx of travelers can help revive the event.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.

So, how do you keep yourself from sweating and stinking up a new city? Try these tips.
