Every year I like to visit new places and go to new conferences. In January 2019, I went to the New York Times Travel Show for the first time.
Who did I meet? Where do I want to go?
Watch my video to find out!

As the show says: “Set your wanderlust free, with over 550 exhibitors representing more than 170 destinations. Travel smarter, with globe-trottting tips from a huge variety of experts. Watch unforgettable cultural performances, savor tastes from the world’s most delicious destinations. And make yourself comfortable, anywhere you roam.”
Thank you again #NYTTS I loved media and trade day!
Thank you Visit California for the lovely luncheon.
I enjoyed the speakers, keynotes and having time to reconnect with good friends.
I look forward to traveling to many new places in 2019.
Who did I see? #NYTTravelShow

One Ocean Expeditions to explore the Arctic and Antarctic
PADI: Do you scuba dive? I love to go scuba diving!
DK EyeWitness Travel books: I used many of their books in my classroom. I love their maps and beautiful color photos. I cannot wait to go back to Portugal.
Curacoa: I met Miss Curacoa and learning to say bye-bye Papiamento which is the creole language spoken in the Dutch Caribbean.
There are so many destinations at this show! I loved wandering the aisles to dream of where to go next.
