Welcome to the TravelTalkMEDIA Newsletter

As I prepare to leave for Berlin, I realize that no matter what condition I leave my workload, my home or my closet for that matter, the work will remain loyally waiting and ready for me to jump back into.

After all, with hopes and dreams comes work to be done. Without that hope and those dreams we might as well cash in the chips. It is said that it is a good sign to never be done and to remain curious and excited about new corners to be turned. I personally like the advice from an anonymous poet below;

Sandy in Caesarea, a town in Israel located mid-way between Tel Aviv
and Haifa. Discover Israel this week with Haim Gutin, Counsel Commissioner
of North and South America.

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave
with the intention of arriving safely
in an attractive and well preserved body,
But rather to skid in sideways,
chocolate in one hand,
ice cream in the other,
body thoroughly used up,
totally worn out and screaming
"WOO HOO what a ride!"

Happy Travels and thanks for joining us,

Sandy Dhuyvetter, Executive Producer and Host

Passports, Get your Passports

Sandy welcomes Passport and Visa expert Philip Diack to TravelTalkRADIO to talk about the latest information and trends in obtaining your passport and Visas.

We will discuss why some countries need a Visa in order to enter and why passports should be looked at each year to first of all make sure that it is not lost!  Another reason expedited passports are needed is because travelers forget to look at the expiration date. And don't forget, they fill up fast so make sure you have room for your next trip or two and why not order extra pages if you travel frequently! Philip is a wealth of information. Join us!

PassportandVisas.com is a nationally recognized
US passport and travel visa service by the
Washington Post
, New York Times and USA
and ranked #1 by the US Passport Service
Guide in a survey of 40 expediting services. Our
team of US passport and visa expeditors have
been obtaining rush passports and visas for over
15 years

America's Most Gracious HostWe

 We have all given a party or two, but can imagine giving more than 5 big parties each month?

That is exactly what the city of New Orleans does. Check out the Events and you will be sure to find one that fancies your interest. If its food or music, you've come to the right place.

Sandy has been to New Orleans 5 times. She has experienced it directly after Katrina and she has experienced it during some of the most flourishing years. One thing is for sure, you will always experience some of the best hospitality in the world. Why you ask? Simply put, these folks love to share their home town and its no secret, they also love to give a good party.


SEGMENT 1 Sandy Dhuyvetter, Executive Producer and Host

Welcome to BusinessTravelRADIO!
On the road again. Sandy is on her way to Berlin where she will attend ITB, one of the largest travel trade shows in the world. At the end of the show, she will make her way to Belgium where she will hop on board the new ship Ms River Splendor. Follow along on facebook from March 13 - 17.

Visiting Albuquerque

Situated in Albuquerque's Historic Old Town, the
Holiday Inn Express also accommodates business travelers as it is only 10 miles from many of the area's businesses.  The location is one of the best to experience the region.

Across the street from the hotel is the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center, where you will experience the culture, heritage and history of the 19 New Mexico Pueblos. Travel a few miles and spend the day at the Santa Ana, Sandia or Isleta Casinos, all offering Las Vegas style gaming.

Harris joins Sandy to talk about why he lives in New Mexico and his love for his home town, Albuquerque. Catch the fever as we explore the South West part of the United States in Albuquerque, New Mexico!

Israel - Consider the Possibilities

There is no one reason to go to Israel, in fact there are so many reasons that we have asked Haim Gutin, the Council Commissioner for North and South America to give us a birds eye view of the excitement that continues to attract tourist, archeologists, educators, faith based travelers and many more.

Haim has been working in the tourism sector since the early 80's and tells a compelling story about why the time has never been better to come to Israel.

Luxury Travel Show Attracts Today's Trendiest Products

Sandy met Ivonne at the Luxury Travel Exchange in Las Vegas and decided this dynamo needed to share her story with her audiences.
All Discovery Cruising is the trade facing arm for Hebridean Island Cruises, Swan Hellenic, and Voyages of Discovery. Our three brands are distinct with their own customer profiles and price points, but are combined in their focus on discovery cruising. Take a listen, there is much to learn about small ship cruising!
