Listen: Ireland, Ballybunion, Atlantic Ocean discussed on Business Rockstars
"Me. Welcome to travel with Stephanie Abrams. Some exotic there is something wonderful of 'bout traveling to places where you actually get to know people it's not just about all the places she visited so you can sit down with a book and say, well have been there and I've been there and I've been there it's kind of that's a fun game. By the way, I love doing that. But more importantly, in my travels, I really make a concerted effort to get to know people not just know their name or having once upon a time had the opportunity to shake their hand in passing but really to know people that often I say, I know them BC. Meaning before children. I know them before they were married, you know. And these are all people for the most part. Either they are in the field of travel tourism and hospitality or they are somehow connected with the traveler, and that's how I met them. One of the places where I probably have more friends away from home that I have at home. Is in Ireland and there are just there's never enough time to see everybody wanna see on every trip. No matter how much time we spend on the trip Ireland and I was determined on this auspicious visit to Ireland amazing visit for which I throw out the gauntlet to fellow broadcasters. Please contact me I want to gather up a group of broadcasters, and have you either fly in the best case scenario Shannon airport. Second. Best case, potentially quirk air international airport because there are markets in the US. You can fly into cork city nonstop from wherever that is one of the being Providence, Rhode Island. Or into Dublin, which is really a quick to our gorgeous drive much like the drive from Boston to Berkshire county in Massachusetts to our Dr same kind of road beautiful scenery, and you're on the west coast, and you'll be in Galway in no time flat. But south of there by about I'm going to say maybe a little more than an hour. You'll arrive in Ballybunion now for those of you golfers euro smiling ear to ear if you haven't played their you know of it. It's a fabulous course. But in Ireland there so fabulous courses. But what makes by Ballybunion newsworthy for broadcasters? It's where Marconi sent the first voice radio message across the Atlantic Ocean. And it went from Ballybunion county Kerry Ireland to Nova Scotia and Canada and March nineteenth was the one hundredth anniversary of that historic event. And we were invited the only American broadcasters, by the way, why shouldn't say American because the Canadians get upset over that they're American to their on North America. Some of the Mexicans Gillette all North America. But the first I was the only US broadcast. Mr. invited to this unbelievable event and I had already determined that. I was going to catch up with somebody hadn't seen in a long time. Any sitting in front of me now. I thought I was going to catch up with him and his last place of serious endeavor. And when I found out he was there anymore, I was shocked to hear. He was in a place on my list of must visit places that must visit place is kinda America host hotel. That is a quick ten minute gorgeous drive along Galway bay. I guess it is, I mean, it looks like the ocean out there ultimately leading to the Atlantic Ocean, but it is just a gorgeous spot with beach, and I don't know this is one another one of those great sunny days in Ireland, contrary to the opinion you here expressed by every Irishman is first words are apologizing for the weather. I don't know what they're talking about.."
