This past weekend was my second year at the San Diego Travel and Adventure Show. Hosted by Unicomm®, this two day event took place at the San Diego Convention Center. Enter at your own risk should really be posted at the door, as the moment you enter you’re bound to want to head off on an adventure or book something within minutes.
In one afternoon you can cross oceans and state lines, travel by land, sea or air and envision a journey of epic proportions. Hike a mountain, ride a segway, take a cooking class – no matter the dream, the travel and adventure show can help you build it. Whether you were enthralled by Pauline Frommer’s depiction of small group and volunteer travel descriptions, listened attentively as Samantha Brown detailed her family travel experiences or felt the burning need to hug a giant panda – the travel show had much to offer.

These phrases all bounced around my head this weekend. As photos of another Northeastern blizzard bombarded my Facebook pages, we jumped head first into San Diego’s outdoor lifestyle. Except for the time we lived in Melbourne, I can’t remember another February that I was this active.

This weekend was the San Diego Travel and Adventure Show. Attending as press, I was allowed in Saturday morning for a one-hour session filled with a meet and greet, photo sessions, activities and an early look at the travel options available.
I could actually walk to a travel show from my apartment-so that was already an exciting start to a lovely Valentine’s Day. Press time here had about fifteen people ready and willing to jump straight into a weekend of travel. We were greeted by the Founder and CEO of Travel and Adventures shows, Jon Golicz. After riding in on a Segway, he hopped off and shared the theory behind these shows that dare travelers to gather and learn about their travel dreams. He told his listeners that in all of their studies, they’ve found that many of today’s travelers ‘like to plan as much as take their trip”. Hopefully, by visiting this travel and adventure show, they’ll not only be able to create that next holiday, but without a doubt, remember it! Read the rest of this entry
