Last year I was introduced to the Travel & Adventure Show for the first time. My husband and I attended the Travel Show in San Diego at the Convention Center, and we had a blast! We wandered in and were amazed at all the information available about travel. We like to travel, and I kind of thought I was already a bit of an expert. But I came away with so much more information.
I learned where the experts go, how to travel light, and how to snag the best deals and the best websites to use to book flights and hotels. We listened to amazing speakers with a wealth of information — who were anxious to share all they knew with us. Speakers like Samantha Brown and Patricia Schultz and Ralph Velasco! I learned how to take better photographs and how get off the beaten path and have more authentic experiences.
But that’s not all! You could practice riding on a segway or climb a rock-climbing wall. This year, you might get to ride on a camel! You can watch dancers from different countries perform…or taste a sampling from a “Taste of Travel” cooking class, talk to tourism board representatives, or even meet the mayor of Escalante, Utah (he was so very kind and hospitable!). If you want to learn everything I learned last year, you can also read my post, Expert Travel Tips. But every year is different, and you’ll learn something new every time you go.
