Thank you for joining us this week.

Kendall Carver, President of the International Cruise Victims Association joins Sandy to talk about the law of the sea: Is there any? We ask this question of Ken Carver whose daughter went missing aboard a Carnival Cruise ship several years ago and has never been found. This is an incredible story of gross negligence, deception, cover-up and outright lies by a major cruise ship line. According to Ken, it’s standard operating procedure across the cruise industry. Continued

Hope your week was wonderful and full of great surprises. We will be formally announcing some new members of our TravelTalkMEDIA family in the next couple of weeks. However, it is never to early to welcome Wild Kingdom Safaris to TravelTalkMEDIA. For the next year, we will be exploring Wild Kingdom Safaris' products and services in Africa with a monthly newsletter and interviews with these experts in Tanzanian safaris. I think you will find as we did, a jewel of an operator. A great name too, don't you think! Wild Kingdom Safaris!


Sandy and Jeremy Lowney, announce partnership between Tanzania's Wild Kingdom Safaris and TravelTalkMEDIA.  Stay Tuned!

I had some incredible fun at the Temecula Bluegrass Festival here in Southern California. I have been playing the squeeze box since I was 7 years old and can't seem to shake the habit. I tried for years to keep it in the closet, but when I have a chance to play with some of the finest musicians around, I can't help but strap the old box on and chime in.
If we are home in Southern California, you will find us on Thursday nights near Encinitas beach at Today's Pizza. I'll be playing with the local bluegrass musicians and Patrick will be entertaining the drop ins with his usual wit and charm. Bring your fiddle and come on down.  By the way, great food too. I have been dropping in for the past 12 years and I've heard the group has been playing for about 20 years. It's a hoot.

We have some great guests on this week with information that is both enlightening and educational. If you have time to listen to only one interview, may I suggest my conversation with Ken Craver, President of the International Cruise Victims Association.

Sam Nhairy, President of American Hotels International, LLC
