I recently traveled to Ireland with Celtic Tours. After an easy overnight flight, my tour began in Dublin with a stop at the world-famous Guinness Storehouse. Spending the first night at Cabra Castle, which is said to be haunted, made the trip extra special. Typical Irish weather didn’t keep me from completely enjoying every minute!
Our driver guide, named Martin, was both informative and funny. He safely navigated the narrow streets through quaint villages like Kenmare and Bantry, as well as country roads over beautiful mountains. A stop in Cobh (pronounced “cove”) allowed time to tour the museum that told the interesting story of this last port the Titanic visited before meeting its untimely end. Roaming the grounds of Blarney Castle, walking the cobblestone streets of medieval Kilkenny, and strolling along the wild coast of Ballycotton made for some memorable afternoons.
Good food, traditional villages, and friendly people make Ireland a place I would like to visit again!

The anticipation is building for this brand new land coming to Disney's Animal Kingdom on May 27th!! Watch this sneak peek into Pandora-World of Avatar and get excited for the three new attractions: Flight of Passage, Na'vi River Journey and Valley of Mo'ara.
The most talked about ride, #FlightofPassage, sounds thrilling!! Disney released this description of Flight of Passage:
Avatar Flight of Passage launches each guest on an exhilarating, wind-in-your-face experience on a winged mountain banshee over the awe-inspiring world of Pandora. Guests will actually feel the banshee breathe beneath them as they soar through the forest and past floating mountains. What was a rite of passage for Na’vi in Cameron’s film becomes a multisensory experience for guests seeking the ultimate adventure – a faceoff with the most feared predator of Pandora, the Great Leonopteryx.
For those who enjoy a little "quieter" ride, you might enjoy the #Na'viRiverJourney better! Here's the highlights from Disney:
On the family-friendly Na’vi River Journey, guests travel down a sacred river deep into a bioluminescent rainforest. The eight-seat reed boats float past exotic glowing plants and Pandoran creatures into the midst of a musical Na’vi ceremony. The mystical journey culminates in an encounter with a breathtakingly realistic Na’vi Shaman of Songs who is deeply connected with Pandora’s life force and sends positive energy through her music into the forest.
The #ValleyofMo'ara sounds pretty awesome too:
The Valley of Mo’ara is where your discovery and exploration of Pandora begins. It’s where the land is an adventure unto itself. Where you don’t climb over mountains—you hike under them. It’s where the night sky comes alive with a bioluminescent glow. It’s where you’ll experience the start of a jaw-dropping, “I’ll-be-talking-about-it-for-years” type of adventure. Don’t forget to hike the otherworldly forests and pathways throughout the valley.
