Wind chills are in the teens and dropping, a foot of snow is coming, and I’m dreaming of a warm beach with a cool drink. But if I really thought about it, I have no idea exactly where that beach may be. I mean really, it’s a pretty big world out there, how can I be expected to figure out what sandy beach will suit me the best?
I hear the same thing from many of my friends, they have no idea how to plan their dream vacation. If they use a travel agent or tour, they will only see “touristy” sites and not get a real taste of the culture. If they rent a car and take off on their own, will they miss out on something or will they travel into unsafe locations? And what to pack, where to exchange money if needed, decent places to stay… the worries grow and their dream trip remains just that, a dream.
But, what if there was a place you could go and get expert advice on everything from local travel to exotic locations from people who walk the walk and talk the talk? Well I’m happy to tell you such a place exists but only for a brief time. It is the Travel & Adventure Show!
Coming to Chicago February 10th & 11th, the Travel & Adventure Show brings a long list of travel experts and exhibitors to help you with your planning, or to introduce you to places you never thought of visiting. Spend time in the theaters learning from speakers who will cover topics including; culture, food, safety, budgeting, best time to visit, and so much more! They’ve got you covered on air, land, and sea, even underwater adventures. Speaking of, don’t miss the dive pool, camel rides, and Segways.
If you ever wanted a chance to meet your favorite travel celeb, Samantha Brown, Rick Steves, Angel Castellanos, and Pauline Frommer will be on hand for presentations and autographs. All this plus food and dance performances from around the globe, give-aways and special show deals!
So c’mon, let’s get your dream trip turned into a reality. Meet you at the Chicago Travel & Adventure Show, and be sure to say hello!
