TBEX in Dublin - Preview

Guinness clock & pub sign in Dublin

Travel Coffee Break (Live Hangout on Air) #88 1700 BST (UK), Weds 24 Sept 

If ever you go to Dublin town 
In a hundred years or so 
Inquire for me in Baggot street 
And what I was like to know. 
-Patrick Kavanagh (1905-1967)

Well you don't have to wait 100 years, because there's quite a few of us pitching up there next week, and, if I get a chance, then I think I might head for some of the pubs on Baggot St like Doheny & Nesbitt,(with its ruby red, cigarette-stained ceilings) and Searsons where Paddy Kavanagh used to hang out :)

.... speaking of Hangouts...

Hundreds of travel bloggers and travel/tourism professionals will be gathering in Dublin next week for this year's TBEX (Travel Blogger Exchange) Europe conference, and joining me in this week's Travel Coffee Break 'live' Hangout on Air, to preview the 2-day conference schedule and surrounding events will be Rick Calvert - CEO of parent company, Blogworld, and Mary Jo Manzanares - Conference Director.

I'm also looking for a couple of TBEX 'old hands' and 'newbies' to provide tips and concerns about how to get the most from going to TBEX, so let me know if that's you!
