The New York Times Travel Show 2012
Each and every year the New York Times hosts a Travel Show – thousands of vendors, destinations, attractions and oddities all together in one place. It’s any travelers dream come true. For the past couple years, Mark has been bringing us live interviews from the floor of the show, including interviews with Arthur Frommer, The US Department of the State about the STEP traveler program, several terrific destinations and more! This year, we’ve managed to round up quite a few great interviews that we can’t wait to share with you. Check them out below!
Broadway Fantasy Camp
If you’re a theater person at heart – with dreams of someday singing on the big stage for yourself – then Broadway Fantasy Camp is for you! The camp gives adults of all ages and skill levels the chance to rehearse in the same theaters as the stars under the guidance of veteran stage directors, choreographers and musical directors. You’ll rub elbows with some of Broadway’s greatests – getting the chance to pick their brains and hear their stories. It really is a dream come true for any stage buff.
Alaskan Dream Cruises
Cruising Alaska is on the bucket list of just about everyone out there. Those who have done it come back raving about the experience – those who haven’t usually have a special place for the idea somewhere in their hearts. Today we introduce you to Alaskan Dream Cruises, one of Alaska’s premier cruising companies. For over 40 years, the company has operated Alaskan boat day trips under the name of Allen Marine Tours. With the addition of multi-day itineraries, the company is poised to offer quite an experience. Tune in to hear what they have to offer!
Quito, Ecuador – Getaway to the Glapagos Islands
To American travelers, the thought of visiting Ecuador often seems out of reach, and we think that’s quite a shame. From it’s diverse arts and culture to the Galapagos Islands and Avenue of Volcanoes, Ecuador has quite a bit to offer the more adventurous travelers out there. We managed to round up a few representatives from Quito, Ecuador to introduce us to the country and hopefully explain why they deserve a spot on your upcoming bucket list of travel.
If you’re looking to stay a little more local, we highly recommend you check out Palm Springs, CA. We managed to corner a few of their representatives to introduce you to just some of the things they offer. It’s truly a diverse, interesting destination!
