A gal friend & I will be on the "Ireland in Depth" tour, as well as the pre-tip extension in Northern Ireland, leaving on October 5th, 2011 (travelers NOT doing the pre-trip would depart on Oct. 10th). Anyone else ready to dance a jig, down a pint of Guiness, or experience the '40 shades of green' on the Emerald Isle on those same dates?
I'm particularly fascinated by Irish music ('Celtic Woman'!, 'Celtic Thunder'!, Enya!); Irish dance ('Lord of the Dance'!, 'Riverdance'!), the Celtic language (Slainte!), and of course experiencing that infamous Irish hospitality in the local pubs (live music, Guinness!, Jameson!). I'm ready to start packing one of my Aran sweaters, my raincoat, a fleece jacket, a couple of 4GB memory cards + my camera, and some Euros (and British Pounds!) to stimulate the Irish economy.
Linda & I would love to hear from any travelers who will be joining us on those dates. I can be contacted directly at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
