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 one of the Celtic nations. 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.”

Traveling 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 of another Celtic country. In 2016, we’re going to Cornwall in search of Celtic culture, King Arthur and the Holy Grail. Will you join us? Subscribe to the mailing list and join the invasion at CelticInvasion.com
