Known as ‘the finest city’ in the US, San Diego, California is winning me over with its sunny blue skies, waterfront surrounds, yoga everywhere, work/life balance and can do attitude. And then there’s the travel aspect. Within a week of being here we had connected with bloggers and travelers sharing tales of life both domestic and international. The ‘travel mindset’ is present here and we’ve been lucky to find a few kindred spirits. Many we’ve interacted with share our belief that travel changes you from the inside out. That same idea is showcased by the designers of this weekend’s Travel & Adventure Show in San Diego – the only major travel show in the area. Taking place at the Convention Center on both Saturday and Sunday, this multi-faceted event offers guests a ‘journey around the world’.
Whether you’re looking for holiday planning ideas, want to listen to celebrity travel speakers up close, or are interested in live demonstrations and hands on activities-this two-day travel show has something for you. Enticing guests to “Dream It. Plan It. Book It.”, travel experts will be available to provide exclusive travel deals and offer heaps of give away promotional items during the show. Meet travel professionals and celebrities the likes of Amazing Race host Phil Keoghan, Frommer Guides director Pauline Frommer and author and Travel Channel host Rick Steves.
I’m honoured to be attending as ‘press’ and am thrilled to be able to offer two passes (provided by the media team at the Travel and Adventure Show) as a give-away. The winner will be chosen at random by midnight Thursday, the 12th of February. To be entered in the drawing share a story in the comment section below with your favourite travel adventure to date. (Tickets will be available at the entrance to the show)
