This Week's Program LIVE from the TravelTalkMEDIA studios in Southern CA.

It's home for a week from Croatia, Florida, Wickenburg Arizona, and Uganda and I'm enjoying seeing my daughter go to her last prom of high school. I'll be on the road again soon for some very worthwhile meetings. Stay tuned.

International Institute for Peace through
Tourism held its annual conference in
Kampala, Uganda May 17 - 23, 2007

My attendance this past week at the International Institute for Peace through Tourism, (IIPT), conference in Uganda was another eye opener for me. Founder and President, Louis D'Amore, attracted some of the brightest stars in the industry to take up his cause. Over 30 countries were represented and more than 300  delegates came to the capital city of Kampala to work 5 days on issues related to tourism and peace. A former Marine, Mr. D'Amore has taken an idea from the mid 1980's  to a work in progress with a bright future.

His Excellency Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, President of Uganda, opened the conference with a warm welcome and showing full support by the government, he declared the first ever Tourism For Peace week by any country in Africa. The conference was also attended by Jordanian senator, Akel Biltaji, who is also a special advisor to His Majesty King Abdullah II. Mr. Beltaji is also the former Minister of Tourism for Jordan. Ministers of Tourism from Tanzania, Sudan, Uganda, and South Africa came with their interpreters and addressed the assembly. There was time for the representative from each country to present and educators from around the world led thoughtful discussions on the essence of peace through tourism. Please support a group like IIPT or if you would like to know more about the IIPT. Click HERE.

Special thanks for the support from Jennifer Archer and Priority Pass and the lounges they offer travelers. I had the fortune of stopping at two of the lounges for a 6 hour layover in London and an 8 hour layover in Dubai. It was a great way to get away from the crowds in the airports and find a bit of solace in the quiet and comfortable lounges. They are filled with food and of course my favorite, a wireless connection! For the last 15 years Priority Pass has been offering access to over 500 airport lounges. Take a look and see if you should be a member. I know I am hooked on Priority Pass!

This coming week I will be in New York City to meet with friends and colleagues who represent luxury travel in what they are calling the Big MACK region of the world (Montenegro, Albania, Croatia and Kosovo).  If you are following travel trends, you'll know they are on to something! And on June 10, we welcome John Johnson, one of my former classmates who was our student body president while in high school. He has gained a new title given to him by the media in Kosovo, The Father of Kosovo. This should be a very interesting interview, LIVE in New York City, Sunday, June 10th.

While in New York City,I will have an opportunity to work a couple of days with my colleagues from the Department of Homeland Security. You can count on more interviews with department officials and on the second Sunday of each month we have the Center for Disease Control on TravelTalkRADIO to talk about healthy travel.

At the end of this month, I hope to be in Jordan on business and take a few days to participate in the upcoming Tourism4Peace summit. I have been honored to work with this group of elite travel industry experts from Egypt, Israel, Jordan and Palestine. All have a one goal; to share the riches of the land with travelers without borders or boundaries. I hope you will take a moment to view their Web site. Click HERE

Please join me as I introduce you to some extraordinary people in the tourism industry. The show will start in a few hours, so please take a listen to the live program or join me through the archives which will be posted shortly after the live broadcast.
Safe travels,

Sandy Dhuyvetter

Sandy co-moderated the Media Exchange for the International Institute for Peace through Tourism last week in Uganda. 12 panelists from around the world came to Kampala to share the good word of travel, media relations and peace.

Exploring the source of the Nile in Uganda, one has to consider what it would be like to float all the way to Egypt. That means from South to North, no doubt, a strange sensation from the western world.
