Among the spectacular cliffs along the Howth Head walk:
At the start of the stunning Howth Head walk. Which literary figure once resided in one of the houses pictured?

The striking Cliff Walk hugs the side of the nearly 800-ft high Bray Head on Ireland's eastern coastline:
No correct guesses yet. Here's another hint - the beach is near this stunning coastal walk:

The coziest spot for tea in Dublin? The two tables @TheWindingStair, one of the city's oldest independent bookstores.
Found at @templebarmarket: @Beanandgoose's hot cocoa made with single origin chocolate. Luxury for a frugal 4 euros.
Thanks @ingridkwilliams! It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas here. Any guesses for this week's destination?
Frugal in #Florence: Trattoria Anita's tortellini norcina has never disappointed in over a decade.
Almost aperitivo time in Florence. Where would you love to be starting the weekend tonight?
Any idea how much this @AlbaTruffle cost? Answer's in this week's column:
Need another hint about this week's "colorful" destination?
Teaser for this week's destination -- can you name it?
