Rod is a good friend of TravelTalkRADIO and always brings loads of Old Town Trolley tickets to the program. We thought it would be fun to mix up the business side of travel with a look at leisure fun on the side. Rod brings that fun to the show. Come meet him this Sunday LIVE from the San Diego convention center.


Old Town Trolley Tours
is the largest operator of theme vehicle tours in the country. 

AND one of the last family 
owned tour operators.

Washington DC

TRAVELTALKRADIO Debuts at NBTA

"In the past ten years we have seen a mass exodus of family owned travel businesses. Many have sold to large travel companies or simply were not profitable enough to stay in business. Historic Tours is thriving and creating hundreds of jobs throughout the U.S.", said Sandy Dhuyvetter, executive producer of Travel Talk Radio.


In Boston you will hear the stories of Paul Revere's daring exploits, visit the Old North Church and the Bunker Hill. In Washington DC you will see monuments and memorials and meet men and women who helped shape the Land of the Free. In San Diego, join a tour of America's finest city and discover beautiful gardens, galleries and the world's best zoo. In St. Augustine (which was founded in 1565 by Pedro Menendez de Aviles), travelers will discover the charm and history of America's oldest city. In Savannah experience the beauty of this colonial city with its mysterious past full of southern charm and legend. And in Key West ride with Historic Tours of American while they turn back the pages of history to the days of Indians, pirates and wreckers.

Consider putting your emergency information in your cell phone.

In case of emergency : ICE

Paramedics will turn to a victim's cell phone for clues to that person's identity. You can make their job much easier with a simple idea that they are trying to get everyone to adopt: ICE.

ICE stands for In Case of Emergency. If you add an entry in the contacts list in your cell phone under ICE, with the name and phone no. of the person that the emergency services should call on your behalf, you can save them a lot of time and have your loved ones contacted quickly. It only takes a few moments of your time to do.

Paramedics know what ICE means and they look for it immediately. ICE your cell phone NOW!

Please pass this one along
NOTE:  This is authentic according to urbanlegends.about.com  but watch  out for the following hoax:

'ICE' Campaign Targeted in Virus Hoax:  False warnings are circulating which claim that adding "ICE" entries to one's cell phone make it vulnerable to a virus attack or hidden charges. Experts say these warnings should be ignored.

Travel Talk Radio believes
T
ravel is a catalyst for creating communication, peace, and commerce among the countries 
and communities of the world. It's difficult to fight with a culture where you have shared a glass of refreshment, 
visited their neighborhoods and experienced their customs. And besides its really fun to get out there and jump on a train, 
bus or plane, walk into a new environment, 
taste new interesting food and talk with the locals. Building memories that are packed 
with experiences of extraordinary places, great people and exciting events are at 
the cornerstone in living a fruitful and harmonious life.
