I am really excited to be a speaker and workshop presenter at SITSum Atlanta next week! No matter how many couches or beds upon which one has slept worldwide, a night at the Atlanta Midtown W in Atlanta is an object of magnificent gratitude. My workshop will blur the lines between tourist and local by linking them together and creating a cultural experience for all parties involved. It also covers how technology and social networks make that happen on both ends of the experience. Check me out the schedule. I'm sure I'll write more about this next week after I return from the experience!
Here's a short video from my online course that discusses the concept of apps for your smartphone or tablet. An iOS or Android device can be your best travel companion when you go around the world because of all the cool apps that you can download to it! You can even use get communication apps without a SIM card or a cell phone service. Check out some of those specific apps here on my site.
I have an online course for travel and all, but it's really great to get interviewed by the Total Education Network to spread the word about travel. We talked a lot about how using multiple one-way flights is a great way to save money, as well as how traveling the world doesn't have to be something only for singles that want to hook up. Here's the interview.
