I will be traveling in Spain for the next three weeks and will not be posting or blogging while away. (I hate to admit this, but I will be traveling ON MY OWN DIME. Ouch!) Please feel free to read or reread any of the 84 articles posted on this blog over the past year. (Or feel free to enjoy my new book, On The Other Guy’s Dime: A Professional’s Guide to Traveling Without Paying.) When I return in mid-April I will have much more to share with you about working vacations, living overseas, and the joys of short-term cultural immersion. Until then, happy and safe travels.
The last couple of weeks were extremely busy in terms of media exposure. On March 5th I was interviewed by Rudy Maxa, aka the Savvy Traveler, on the radio show Rudy Maxa’s World, syndicated on a hundred stations across the U.S. You can listen to the interview at:
Simply go to the broadcast entitled “March 5, 2011 – Hour 2” and scroll forward to the 23:45 minute mark where my interview begins.
The following week I made my TV debut on the Minneapolis talk show “KARE-11 Today.” I was nervous but hope that my fear didn’t come across on camera. You can be the judge–the streaming video is available at:
Then I hit the trifecta with an invitation to do a segment for the Peter Greenberg Worldwide radio show. Now I am embarrassed to admit that I had not heard of Peter Greenberg before receiving that invitation. However, when I saw his list of achievements, I was blown away: Emmy Award winner, investigative reporter (Dateline NBC), New York Times best-selling author, contributor to Forbes magazine, a frequent guest on Oprah, Conan, Dr. Phil, Larry King, and (most important from my point of view) host of a CBS radio show heard on 400+ stations in North America! This guy is the big cahuna. You can listen to a podcast of that March 12th show at:
I hope you enjoy these mass media interviews.
