|Welcome to this weeks TravelTalkRADIO newsletter.
I hope you were able to join us this past Sunday for a great program. We were delighted to welcome Christian Folly-Kossi, the General Secretary of the Africa Airline Association (AFRAA) to our studios in San Diego. Open skies throughout the African continent was our top discussion as it proves to be both the biggest priority and the most daunting challenge for airlines in Africa.
This Saturday morning on KUSI channel 9
Sandy takes you to Morocco.
| It is obvious Mr. Folly-Kossi and the associations are slowly and successfully uniting airlines throughout this vast and diverse continent. AFRAA is the only agency of its kind in Africa and is the future and hope for unified travel throughout the 53 countries. Also in the studio were African travel experts, Ron Mracky and Silvia Frommer-Mracky from Los Angeles. If you are interested in African travel, their interviews on last weeks show are a must for listening. Ron and Sylvia are also active members in the Africa Travel Association (ATA).
Moving onto some of the highlights for this weeks coming program on Sunday; we are getting word that Tara Riordan from Department of Homeland Security will join us in our studios for our monthly update on U.S. travel and security. Tara gives us first hand knowledge of the new regulations affecting travelers being put into place and we get a first hand look into the agency where she has been working closely with Tom Ridge, Michael Chertoff and Alfonso Martinez-Fonts.
We have been anxiously awaiting the debut of the Russian River Wine Association on TravelTalkRADIO and its finally here. We are going to introduce our audiences to executive director Beth Costa and talk about the 100 wineries and 50 lodgings in the Russian River region of Northern California. Well also learn more about the Northwest Sonoma County and this most picturesque grape-growing region in California.
We have an additional treat coming to you as we welcome Cynthia Langston, author of Bicoastal Babe, on the program. Cynthia is on a book tour here in Southern California and will stop by the studios. We will find out more about this hilarious novel with the very unusual title.
Also joining me is longtime friend and colleague, John Kolbisen. John is very successful, he has a thriving family in Half Moon Bay and several businesses in the Bay area including La Petite Baleen in Half Moon Bay and San Bruno. John is also the president of the National Swim School Association and is passionate about traveling. I met John when he became my sons first swim teacher when Eric was 5 months old. John and his wife and partner, Irene, continued to teach Eric until he was 9 years old and we moved to San Diego. I am delighted to share this dear friends story with you as we travel back to his roots in Italy with John Kolbisen.
I couldn't pass up the chance to have Diva Dog's owner Kathy Haase on the program to talk about traveling dogs. I met her while being featured on channel 9's Good Morning San Diego program a couple of Saturdays ago and thought we would get a kick out of talking moving dogs and what the trends are for traveling dogs this year.
Greg Baxter will be coming into the studio this Sunday to talk about his trip to Jamaica and the Super Clubs Epicurean Escape that fired up the Island this past weekend. This will be a treat as Greg is one funny and entertaining guy.
And finally, we will hear from Air New Zealands VP of Marketing, Rebecca Nicol, about the airlines new traveler and vacation survey results. You will be surprised to learn what more and more people expect from their doctors in regards to a vacation! Come and find out this coming Sunday.
Also we are welcoming new sponsor BRENDAN Worldwide Vacations. We are excited to promote a world-class leader in tour operations. Please join me to learn more about BRENDAN Worldwide Vacations.
Where ever your travels take you we wish the best and safest trip.
This week's music will be taken from one of the many CD from Putumayo's collection called: The Caribbean. Join us as we celebrate this wonderful music featuring the irresistible rhythms of soca, reggae, merengue and more!
