Laying Down the Law on Passenger Rights  

Al Anolik, Author and Travel Attorney

TravelTalkMEDIA’s travel law correspondent joins us to give us his learned legal opinions on air passenger rights vis-à-vis tarmac delays, lost luggage compensation, overbooking and more. Join us for another “Have Law, Will Travel” experience. Lean more and listen here

 

 

Bubbles and Blues on Bourbon Street

Alva Johnson, Co-Founder of the Independent Champagne and Sparkling Wine Invitational in New Orleans, Louisiana

In April, there is a very special event in New Orleans that virtually serves both as the grand finale for the fabulous French Quarter Festival and as the opening reception for the Jazz & Heritage Festival. Heck, all by itself, the idea of a three-day champagne and sparkling wine tasting event in the culinary Mecca and live music capital of the United States sounds pretty inviting to us! Unique pairings will include Ribs and Rosé. Mmm, Mmm!  Lean more and listen here

 


JR Ewing was Shot Here

Sally Peavy, Tourism Sales Manager, Group Tours at the Southfork Ranch in Dallas, Texas – A Forever Resorts Property

Say what you will about the current popularity of the TV show LOST, it just can’t compare with the 13 year run of Dallas which included the world famous “Who Shot JR?” episode. That single hour-long broadcast still remains the highest rated non-finale episode of any TV series in history by a wide margin. Why don’t y’all stop by and we’ll visit for awhile with Sally Peavy, Forever Resorts’ very own “Southern Belle of the Southfork Ranch.”  Lean more and listen here
 

 

Fidel Drove

Kirby Jones, President of Alamar Associates, specializing in Cuba Travel, Tourism and Trade

Consistently voted every year as the best Caribbean Island (by far it’s the biggest), Cuba is open to tourists from every country in the world except the United States. What?! We can go to North Korea but not Havana?! During a trip in ’74 as a free-lance journalist sent on assignment to interview Fidel Castro, Kirby Jones realized he was becoming passionate about Cuba and its people. His passion turned into a career. We’ll talk with this expert in Cuba trade and tourism about the very real possibility that the US may lift travel restrictions to this island nation in the very near future. Cuba Libre? We’ll drink to that!  Lean more and listen here
 

 

I Need a Miracle Everyday

Caroline Boudreaux, Founder and Executive Director of The Miracle Foundation

We’ve all seen those commercials on TV that implore us to “sponsor a starving orphan child for only 15 cents a day.” The ads are emotionally compelling to say the least, but still we wonder: Does the money really get to these kids, will such a small amount make any difference, are these kids even for real? Well, when you donate through the Miracle Foundation, part of the charitable program is to actually travel to India to personally nurture and work with the child you have sponsored. So, stop wondering already and pack your bags.  Lean more and listen here

 

 

Limo for 30
Jeff Gayduk, President of Premier Tourism Marketing, Inc, Publisher of Leisure Group Travel magazine.

Group travel remains exceptionally resilient in the US despite some rather dismal economic circumstances recently. Niche and affinity group travel including reunions, students, sports, families, church and faith-based are all doing remarkably well. Most are traveling together in style aboard the latest in modern motorcoaches featuring such amenities as WiFi, kitchens, digital entertainment systems and luxurious interiors. Definitely not your father’s motorcoach! Lean more and listen here

Letters to Zerky
