Happy 8th Anniversary  TravelTalkRADIO!
It was in mid-August 2001 that the first broadcast of TravelTalkRADIO aired. One of the primary goals of this new programming was to celebrate travel, tourism and the diversity of the many people and places of the world. But a few weeks later, the events of September 11 forever threatened and indelibly changed the precious freedom of travel. TravelTalkRADIO became immediately more relevant than we ever imagined. Eight years later, we are still striving to bring you the latest news and most accurate information on the trends in the travel and tourism industry by doing what we do best, "Connecting you to the Experts". Thanking you, our loyal fans and listeners, and wishing you our very best on this, the eighth anniversary of TravelTalkRADIO.

International Hospital Accreditation Skyrockets 1,000%

In the last five years, the number of JCI (Joint Commission International) accredited public and private hospitals around the world has increased by nearly 1,000%.
Up from a mere 27 hospitals and health care organizations with that accreditation in 2004, currently over 250 such entities in 36 countries have now been accredited by the JCI. This extremely high standard of “American accreditation” will likely instill a new level of confidence in US citizens seeking affordable health care alternatives abroad. With the US Congress currently locked in a fierce battle over how to solve the national health care crisis, Josef Woodman, author of Patients Beyond Borders, joins Sandy Dhuyvetter on TravelTalkRADIO to discuss this extraordinarily relevant trend.

Mission in Morocco
With nearly 30 years of service to the US State Department stationed in Morocco, Boubker Mazoz has long been, well, sort of a "community organizer." His primary mission has been to improve the lives of the young people of Morocco. Over the years he's created numerous neighborhood associations, including such things as organizing student groups to tutor and mentor younger children and forming action groups to improve accessibility for the blind to education and sports opportunities.

He also pursues his mission by "sistering" US and Moroccan cities and bringing students from the two countries together, both virtually and in person, to promote better cross-culture understanding, mutual respect, and cooperation. So, after 30 years, what's he going to do when he retires?

How to Build, Buy or Become
a B&B

Back in the early days of the Internet, yes, way, way back in the late 90's, finding a good bed and breakfast, or B&B, was a real challenge and mostly a hit or miss proposition. Enter Mary White, founder of www.BnBfinder.com.

With the current economy causing many families to look closer to home for vacation, finding a good B&B nearby has become more important and relevant than ever. Interestingly in a stretch economy, many folks are also looking for lifestyle changes
and a way to squeeze some profit from their homes and  residential investment

properties by building, buying or becoming a B&B.

If that's you, don't be stupid. Listen up, then read this book, Dummy!

Many Thanks to our Sponsors! Plus, hot news flash about SuperClubs!
We like to remind our loyal listeners and fans that radio is free. You just turn it on or let it stream. No charge! And that's because of our many sponsors and advertisers that believe in and provide financial support to TravelTalkRADIO. We remind and encourage our audiences to please consider trying the products and services of our sponsors and advertisers. Kick their tires. We only promote those companies we trust in and we are confident you, too, will be pleased with their offerings. And speaking of great sponsors, we have a hot news flash about one of our longtime sponsors, SuperClubs Resorts.

Starting December 17th, US Air will offer a brand new direct flight from Phoenix to Montego Bay, Jamaica, home of several of our very favorite SuperClubs all-inclusive resort properties. That means a new and easy connection to and from Jamaica for everyone living in the Western US! And did you realize that it takes just as much flight time to fly from California to Hawaii as it does from California to Jamaica?! Hey mon, you need to visit SuperClubs in Montego Bay! One Love!

World's Largest Helicopter Becomes Flying Hotel
Just kidding. But this genius bit of viral marketing wrapped in the guise of an April Fool's Day hoax garnered nearly 2 million hits for hotelicopter.com, launching it as the leading hotel search engine.

Capable of aggregating rates and availability for over 150,000 hotels worldwide in real time, you really need to know about this wonderfully powerful tool right at your fingertips.
