In “Epic Drives of the World” (328 pages, $35), Lonely Planet serves up a collection of journeys through geography, geology and cultures of astonishing grandeur, from the Belfast loop to the Captain Cook Highway to Iceland’s Ring Road.Each story is flanked by gorgeous images for inspiration, as well as practical information for those inspired enough to go.Havana to Viñales: Overhead, neighbors call to one another as they hang out washing in colorful strings from balconies; others gather on doorsteps to shoot the breeze, as often as not with fat Cuban cigars dangling from their fingers.The Great Ocean Road: After Lorne, an Australian beachside town that attracts a lot of weekending urbanites, the driving experience begins in earnest.Canada’s Icefields Parkway: Craggy peaks spike the skyline to east and west, and beyond lies wild backcountry barely changed since the days when Stoney, Kootenay and Blackfeet tribes called this land home.West Atlantic Way: Vibrant, bohemian Galway soon gives way to the limestone fields of the Burren, the precipitous Cliffs of Moher, and the reels and jigs that are a feature of Doolin’s pubs.

- Irish teens sing 'Despacito' in Gaelic and they're better than Bieber
By Rachel Thompson - Monday Jul 3, 2017
It takes a decent amount of nerve and courage to take on the song of the summer. But, one group of Irish teenagers absolutely crushed their rendition of "Despacito" by Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee feat. Justin Bieber.
Students at Irish language summer school Coláiste Lurgan in County Galway, Ireland, performed a version of "Despacito" in Gaelic. And they absolutely nailed it.
The students didn't just sing as Gaeilge, they also added Irish dancing and the dulcet sound of an Irish tin whistle to the rendition. The effect is pretty darn magical.
You'd better watch out, Biebs. Read more...More about Justin Bieber, Singing, Ireland, Irish, and Teens
