Today's show is brought to you by Celtic Invasion of Brittany
Standing stones are pretty awesome and inspiring to see. But imagine 3000 of them, together... and you, able to make a daily sojourn among the stones. This June, you can see the Carnac Stones up close and personal, just a 20 minute walk from where we are staying in the coastal village of Carnac in Northwest France. You have until February 15, 2017 to reserve your spot on the next Celtic Invasion Vacation. Enjoy the culture, history and legends on a timeless adventure with a small group of 6-8 invaders.
