LA Times Travel & Adventure Show 2011: Day One

Earlier I said this will be the best travel show of the year and it lived up to the hype. I listened to three amazing, passionate travel writers, Arthur Frommer, Andrew McCarthy, and Rick Steves. I’ll go into detail in future posts.

The recession may be over as tons of wannabe travelers swamped the LA Convention Center. Countless countries were showing their wares on one end while many US states showcased their finer points on the other. The Taiwan booth was especially fun with a boba drink shaking contest and a stationary bike cycling contest.

If you are the adventurous type, make sure to try their zipline, scuba pool, or rock climbing wall. There were tons of goodies, endless giveaways, and yummy treats! 🙂 You can also take in cultural dance performances as well. If you don’t have time to take a vacation, this is the next best thing. While you’re there, you will have everything you need to PLAN your next vacation, so snap to it!

I couldn’t find a current commercial, but this clip from 2009 shows you what adventure awaits you. Tomorrow, more Rick Steves and Samantha Brown!

Where are you going on your next vacation?

Stay Inspired!

      I visited Taiwan a few times, great place to visit. I’m still on the hunt for my next vacation. So many choices, so little time! 🙂 Any vacations coming up for MC?

      A boba drink is usually a milk tea or juice filled with yummy balls of tapioca. You have to try it!

  2. I’m going to Costa Rica to learn Spanish and surf. It’s gonna be awesome.
