In New Book, Academia Discusses Relationship of Tourism and Peace

Dr. Omar Moufakkir, Chair of the Tourism and Peace Research Group at Stenden University in Leeuwarden, Netherlands

Eleven professors, governmental officials and travel experts from around the world have collaborated on a new book that has been recently published entitled Tourism, Progress and Peace. Our good friend and colleague, Dr. Moufakkir, is the chair of a unique hospitality university research department called the International Centre for Peace through Tourism and served as the editor for this new treatise. Omar will talk with us about the premise and focus of this scholarly work for which Sandy was honored to have written the foreword.

IN LOVING MEMORY
Sandy and the entire TravelTalkMEDIA team mourn the loss of one of the world's most passionate advocates of  tourism for peace, Janos Damon. He passed away in Israel after a brief illness this week.

He was a friend and mentor.
Janos was one of the founding founders of
Tourism4Peace.

Globejotting, Kind of Says it All

Dave Fox, Author of Globejotting: How to Write Extraordinary Travel Journals (and still have time to enjoy your trip!)

A new book offers some great instruction for writing more meaningful travel journals and capturing memories in a much more holistic way than photography can. The author tackles difficult issues such as how to find the time to write travel journals, how to write creatively with descriptive details and, perhaps most importantly, how to stay motivated. Dave Fox tells us, “Whenever we step outside our cultural comfort zones and go into unfamiliar territory, we find other facets of our own personalities that I think we didn’t know existed before and we act differently when we are in these other cultures.” Perhaps like no other life experience, travel dramatically changes our personae. Learn how to discover your true innerself through your own travel journals.

A True Patriarch of Travel and Tourism

He claims to have helped Noah load the ark. Well, figuratively speaking anyway, that’s about how long Bob Whitley has been involved in the travel and tourism industry. He was a keystone in the founding of the Travelers Conservation Foundation that evolved into the modern day Tourism Cares organization. Bob has also been actively involved in the American Tourism Society for many years.

He’ll share with us a little history lesson and also describe the new international collaborative effort between ATS and Tourism Cares, two great organizations that are joining forces in a project designed to promote and transform a well-deserving, but little known, tourism destination.
