By Paul Knowles (first published in the Toronto Sun)

Leave time for the unexpected: that’s a very important rule for travellers. Too tight a travel schedule will leave you hostage to the clock, and unable to explore wonderful things you might stumble upon. Like, for instance, Colclough Gardens in County Wexford, Ireland. It would be easy to miss ColClough, as you rush to visit the many other worthwhile sites in Wexford – but don’t.

Special Interest: Unique Autograph Collection Hotels "Passionately Independent"

By Tammy Peters

A collection of over 75 independently owned hotels around the world, the vision behind the Autograph Collection is to offer an evolving group of passionately independent hotel experiences ranging from a 15-room boutique hunting lodge in the mountains of Colorado, to a 19th century neoclassical palace in the majestic city of Prague. The Collection prides itself in being Exactly like nothing else. Each hotel is thoughtfully chosen for its quality, originality, bold character and an ability to offer unique experiences tailored to a guest's individual sense of style and adventure. Just coming up on its 5th year anniversary, Autograph Collection is still relatively new, but its distinct portfolio has proven to be a highly successful venture thanks to a discerning selection process and each hotels' ability to create enriching, one-of-a-kind travel experiences.
