Seeing Forever

Becki Lewis
, Regional Director of Sales for Bryce Canyon & Grand Canyon North Rim – Forever Lodging

Most people who visit the Grand Canyon do so at the South Rim mainly because it’s easier to get to than the North Rim. But, considering that the North Rim is nearly 400 meters higher in elevation, the view is not only that much deeper into the canyon, you can also see for miles and miles across the plateau on the other side where the South Rim is. Really, it feels like you can see forever. Definitely a place worthy of an overnight!  Lean more and listen here


Curaçao Takes A Bow
Jeanette Bonet
, General Manager of the Breezes Curaçao Resort Spa & Casino

If you like the desert, long sunny days and gorgeous beaches on blue Caribbean shores, then have we got the place for you. It’s an island where it hardly ever rains located about 50 kilometers north of Venezuela with 38 secluded natural beaches and offers a diver’s paradise. Could we seal the deal if we told you there was an all-inclusive Breezes Resort right there?! Lean more and listen here

 

 

Office on Mt. Kilimanjaro
Philip Mong'ateko
, Operations Manager for Omong'we Travel & Tours in Tanzania

For many of us, reaching the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro on the “Rooftop of Africa” just once is a worthy and challenging life goal. We’ll introduce you Philip, one of Kilimanjaro’s most experienced mountain guides, who has been to the top so many times he’s lost count. He tells us it’s like asking someone how many times they’ve been to their office in the last 10 years. They have no idea! Lean more and listen here

Holy Land: Wholehearted

Christina Samara, President of the Holy Land Incoming Tour Operators Association (HLITOA) and Executive Manager of the Samara Tourist & Travel Agency.

Mass media would have you believe that the Palestinian West Bank, the core of the Holy Land, is a foreboding land, a dangerous place, where the population cowers in their homes. Well, it’s just not true. The Holy Land Incoming Tour Operators Association has 38 member organizations that are ready to take from the Walls of Jericho to the Church of the Nativity. Don’t let unfounded fear cause you to deny yourself a visit to this, the cradle of civilization and the birthplace of the world’s three great monotheistic religions. Lean more and listen here

This week’s author of Kitchen Chinese



Where kids take their parents on vacation

Richard Bourke, General Manager of the Breezes Trelawny Resort in Jamaica

We’ll talk with Richard about his all-inclusive Breezes resort in Jamaica that totally caters to both you and the kids. Let’s face it, when the whole family is on vacation, parents really need enough space to find some time to unwind. Breezes Trelawny is especially designed with that in mind. Plus, there’s tons of great fun stuff you can all together, too. Lean more and listen here


A most incredible travel writer
Michael Luongo, Freelance Writer, Editor and Photographer

We’ll talk with Michael about the amazing amount of diversity you will surprisingly find in the Middle East. For example, in the Holy Land, you’ll often hear the call to prayers of the muezzins at dawn followed by the Christian church bells shortly thereafter.  We’ll also talk about what it takes to become a successful travel writer. Listen up and learn from a true pro. Hints: You’ll need to be on a very tight budget, have a “news nose” for stories, and write, write, write. A strong dose of passion really helps, too! Lean more and listen here

N’awlins Is Cookin’
Alison Blondeau
, Director of Group Sales for the New Orleans School of Cooking and Louisiana General Store,

New Orleans has probably the best food in world and it’s from all over the world. Find our more about a unique school right in the middle of the French Quarter that can teach you how to cook up some genuine Cajun Creole delights!  From corporate team building to kids’ birthday parties to rehearsal dinners and even bachelorette parties, this is one fun place to study! Lean more and listen here
 

No Starbucks in Italy
Thomas Steinmetz, Publisher of eTurboNews

We’ll talk with our favorite travel newsman live from his boyhood home in Düsseldorf. He’s just come back from a travel industry expo in Milan and, despite the current problems in the world economy, tourism in Italy is doing very, very well, grazie molto! He lived on espresso the entire time he was there. The pasta was way too expensive and, apparently, there is no Starbucks in Italy!  Lean more and listen here
 

Where the heck is Senegambia?

Edward Bergman, Executive Director of the Africa Travel Association in New York City

A first generation South African-American, the leader of the ATA talks about why Africa holds such a draw for him and for so many others, even those without roots deep into the continent. Eddie will also tell us just where “Senegambia” is located. Lean more and listen here
 

Hippo Rollers Rock!
Allison Villasenor, Manager of Programs for the Collette Foundation

Imagine walking several miles with a five or six gallon container of water balanced on your head. That’s about 50 lbs or 20 kilos. Now do it carrying a small child on one hip and a sack of grain in the other arm. This is what many women in Africa do every day. Understanding this challenge of daily life, you can begin to appreciate what a godsend the Hippo Roller is and why it is central to a brilliant charitable initiative undertaken by the folks at Collette Vacations. Lean more and listen here


Kitchen Chinese
Ann Mah, Author of Kitchen Chinese

Kitchen Chinese is the language that Chinese-Americans often teach their children. It’s good enough to do some light chit chat between parent and child, but leaves a lot to be desired when it comes to serious conversation. We’ll hear why this subject makes for a great book and we’ll also find out what it feels like to be a Chinese-American in Beijing where everybody else looks just like you do.
