Today's show is brought to you by Celtic Invasion Vacations

If you are listening to this podcast then you probably dream of traveling to Ireland or Scotland. So I have one piece of advice. Do it! I'm not saying you should join me on one of my Celtic Invasion Vacations. I'm not saying you should join another tour group. But travel. Go. Right now.

Mark Twain wrote: "Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime."

There was no greater evidence of this for me than when I took my one and a half old daughter to Ireland in 2012. You could almost see a mind explosion as her linguistic and mental skills grew through our travels. It is the same with adults. Traveling to Ireland or Scotland, or wherever, will change your life for the better forever. Stop waiting for the "right moment". Start planning now. If you enjoy my music, then join me on a Celtic Invasion Vacation. Subscribe to my mailing list and join the invasion at
