Video: Happy 4th of July From Ireland

In a driving rainstorm, our happy Best of Ireland in 14 Days tour group packed a shuttle bus to get to another sight and took a spontaneous moment to celebrate our American heritage. While our Irish guides (Declan and Dara — shown at the end of this clip) can sing all the verses of scores of their folk songs, our lyrics soon became dum-dee dum-dee dum dum dum… but it still felt great. Best wishes to all our travelers…both at home and abroad on this happy day.

This is Day 63 of my “100 Days in Europe” series. As I travel with Rick Steves’ Europe Tours, research my guidebooks, and make new TV shows, I’m reporting on my experiences across Europe. Still to come: England, Scotland, Germany, Switzerland, and more. Thanks for joining me here on my blog and via Facebook.
