Los Angeles Travel and Adventure Show 2013, Jan. 12-13: Resolve to See the World

Make your New Year's resolution to get out there and see the world--we are well into the 21st Century and many of us are still uninvested in this big blue marble. Go somewhere--go anywhere--go to San Diego, Big Bear, or go see the Great Wall of China. We all need this essential nourishment of cultural interaction--it's going to bring us closer, make our life richer, and destroy all prejudices, and misunderstandings we have about each other. And--travel tastes, smells, looks, sounds, and feels amazing--all your senses will be engaged in this show.

The Los Angeles Travel and Leisure Show 2013 is next weekend at the Long Beach Convention Center, January 12-13, and only $9 online and $12 at the door gives you access to a world of travel.

What I like to see at the show is who is really making a push to get some of our tourist dollars--look for the big booths--last year it was Taiwan, Korea, Turkey, and Ecuador--these larger booths will be reaching out with great prices on hotels and packages to get you on that plane. These are going to be hot destinations with solid tourist infrastructure. This year it's Turkey, Japan, and Indonesia pulling out all the stops.

There's entertainment for the whole family, guests speakers, cooking demos, seminars, and booths for every kind of traveler--from local getaways to global retreats.

I've been going to this show for years and highly recommend stopping by to receive the latest travel information, get discounts on guides and products, listen to travel pros, and have a fun afternoon with the entire family.

Looks like a good show they have lined up. Nice to see Indonesia as one of the main countries being promoted. Balinese cuisine is fantatsic and almost always a hit with tourists.
