This Week in Travel hosts Jen Leo and Chris Christensen invited me to this week’s episode along with Corey Taratuta of the Irish Fireside podcast. Though it took us a second time to get all the Google Hangout technology to work, we had a good time. We start with a rundown of this week’s travel news headlines. Corey then talks about The Gathering, this year’s big tourist program in Ireland, which reminds me of my favorite Ireland travel moment — finding a laundromat next door to a pub in Cork. I also talk about the explosion of tablet sizes and form factors, a topic also covered in TravelCommons #103. And just to be clear, I did not choose the thumbnail for the YouTube preview.
