Have we had our fill of our leader, Leo Varadkar, our Taoiseach, here in Ireland?
Here he is in Los Angeles with Tourism Ireland obscuring the word ‘fill’ in the slogan ‘fill your heart with Ireland.’
Like Leo, I’m an LA fan, and a Tourism Ireland one too.
So, of course, I was there at the launch of ‘fill your heart’ where they showcased a Dutch guy in their video with a heart monitor going around Ireland.
And I happily tell the Americans when I visit their Travel fair www.ipw.com every year.
This year, of course, the fair was in Anaheim and I brought you all that was happening… https://jimmurtytraveltraveltravel.com/2019/06/22/my-weekend-with-marilyn/. And http://Stair Wars.
LA and a cruise
Now you might think looking from afar that America and Mexico were squabbling neighbours.
But not all traffic between the two countries is of the illegal sort. In fact it is a well-trodden route for tourists going both ways.
You want to get on the road too. And American Holidays will help http://www.americanholidays.com.
They have a Los Angeles Stay and 5-nights Mexican Riviera Cruise from €1,119pp.
All flights are included from Dublin to Los Angeles. You’ll get two nights say in the Garland, Los Angeles, and five nights on Royal Princess cruse ship… http://www.princess.com.
You’ll be travelling in February of next year.
And here’s what I think of Princess from their recent stop-off in port… https://jimmurtytraveltraveltravel.com/2019/07/30/cruiseday-tuesday-the-princesss-medallion-man/.
Now back to ‘Fill Your Heart with Ireland’.
It was rolled out on major American television networks – including NBC, CBS, Fox and ABC – in Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Hartford, Minneapolis, Philadelphia and Seattle, during the summer.
The campaign was specially timed to better align with when American travellers start searching for fall and winter vacation ideas.
Keep up the good work Tourism Ireland.
And with Holiday Snaps getting even snappier, watch out for more Holiday Snaps through the weekend.
MEET YOU ON THE ROAD
