January Recap

January has been quite busy. I re-entered the classroom, became acquainted with my students and adjusted to the workload.  It feels good to be settled.

Lately, I’ve been planning upcoming travel and preparing notes to speak at the New York Times Travel Show. I was asked by the Family Travel Association to join a panel and I gladly accepted.

This weekend, I nervously entered the stage of the Family Travel Pavilion for the panel discussion.  My husband and son were there to support me and once I started talking about my family’s love of travel–I felt calm.

I can’t wait to share my upcoming travels with you! I’ll be sure to post my latest published work on all social media accounts. Until then, safe travels.

NYT Travel Show 2016

The New York Times Travel Show was a weekend jam packed with information and travel deals. Before the official expo, the Cruise Line International Association hosted a private reception. I was able to chat with major cruise companies about what’s up-and-coming.

Friday was the trade day and conference at Javits Center, there I gained insight on travel media and learned the top destinations for 2016. When sessions ended, the expo was opened to preview.

Saturday and Sunday were consumer days, so the atmosphere was quite lively with seminars, performances, cooking demos and contests. There was even a silent auction for Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association Education Fund.

The weekend was so informative and exciting. I look forward to the articles and posts that develop because of it. I hope you come on this journey with me. 

What’s in store for 2016?
