|On your mark, get set, grab the kids, its vacation time!
by Sandy Dhuyvetter
I dont know about you, but it seems to happen overnight. The feeling in the air, the outdoor events, the long sunlit days and the family vacation are all a part of the summer magic. I personally love the long summer days surrounded by our family and friends along with late dinners and early morning walks on the beach followed by a swim in our warm pool. It might seem ironic, but during the summer the TravelTalkRADIO staff travels the least. Our shows are always fresh and new no matter the season, but after putting more than 500,000 miles under our belts to promote travel this year, summertime is our payoff. Its when we hope to reap the bounty of our travels and remote broadcasts by hearing that record numbers of people are traveling and crossing borders into different regions and cultures. If this happens, it means we have played a small but important part of a very large assignment.
Sandy is joined by Gary Murphy this
past weekend at the KNBC Travel Expo in Los Angeles.
TravelTalkRADIO was founded on the belief that to have true world peace we must all travel to each others' countries. Even though we speak of travel as an industry, it is, in reality, people moving around freely, communicating face-to-face, extending hands in friendship, celebrating the diversity amongst cultures and respecting the environment. And like most every other country, the travel and tourism industry is an integral part of making Americas economy, borders and international relationships strong.
World travel is expected to double over the next 15 years creating a huge increase in economic growth, jobs and tax revenue. Even though the number of foreign visitors continues to rise in the U.S., and this year is projected to reach an all-time high, the rest of the world is passing America by with statistics that are well outpacing U.S. growth. And if slow growth is not bad enough, Americas image is down by 36% since 1992. It seems to be an uphill battle with reports coming from such places as Australia ranking Japan and China as the top two most admired countries followed third by America. The most disappointing and alarming news is that the overwhelming majority of Australians ranked both Islamic fundamentalism and the U.S. as the world's two greatest threats. Yet the fact remains that when most visitors come to the U.S. for the first time, they find themselves warmly appreciative of American hospitality. Sadly, America is not the only victim of mainstream media's one-sided and exaggerated press reports.
As we visit foreign lands, each one of us needs to be an ambassador for the country we call home. The duties of ambassadorship are few but the benefits are many and include the creation of goodwill between countries, a broader base of economic wealth and, ultimately, world peace. To achieve these goals we must all travel and we must encourage and support our young people to cross borders and experience cultures. True wisdom comes to travelers who open their eyes and their hearts to new environments and new experiences. The quote from St. Augustine that The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page is at the core of this week's program.
Please join me as we welcome into the studio from Kenya the President/General Secretary of the African Airline Association, Christian Folly-Kossi. We also are delighted that Sylvia Frommer-Mracky and Ron Mracky from the African Times in Los Angeles will be joining us in the studio. Well also take you on adventures in Scotland, Israel, and the National Parks of the U.S. and well talk to Kathy Sudeikis, President of the American Society of Travel Agents (ASTA). I look forward to having you join us this coming Sunday.
Warm regards and safe travels,
