“This Week in Travel” Goes a Wee Bit Irish

In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, I was invited to green things up over at the “This Week in Travel” podcast.

That’s the show where the (almost holy) Trinity of Travel – Gary McArndt, Chris O’Christensen and Jen “Sweet Colleen” Leo – chat about which travel scams are trying to steal yer pot o’ gold, tell tales of bad leprechauns getting kicked off a planes, carry on about gadgets that book cozy B&Bs and introduce the world to non-Irish destinations… I know, many of you have forgotten that there are places to visit other than the Emerald Isle, so a healthy dose of “This Week in Travel” will be good for you.

In our fireside chat… without the fireside, we talk about headlines in Irish travel, best-loved Destinations in Ireland, the Irish-American Road Trip and loads of other items I think you’ll enjoy.

Use the player at the top of this post to have a listen. You are welcome to visit their site, leave a comment and even subscribe to their weekly podcast at www.thisweekintravel.com.
