You'll find one of the oldest cultures in Europe along the Atlantic coast of Spain and France. We'll explore Basque Country with two guides who have deep family roots in the region. We'll also visit the island of Innishmore in Ireland's Aran Islands. And we'll extend our St. Patrick's Day observance by hearing how nearly every town in Ireland comes with its own special song.
