World Clock

This is useful, educational and fun. It's a world clock that includes time and every kind of world statistic you can imagine. It easy to get lost in the spinning numbers.

Traveling Cairo to Cape Town--Pam Barrus

Many of my past students know Pam Barrus, a tour director, travel staff, author and adventurer. Pam traveled throughout Africa this year alone. The link below will take you to her blog.

Hi Cherie,

It's Pam Barrus, …the URL of the blog I ran during the Cairo to Cape Town trip this summer, so here it is: The most entertaining part, imo, is in July with Somaliland, Las Geel, and Jubba Airways. :-) In October I'm giving a talk about the trip, but for only about 20 minutes on a panel to some university women's group. It's to encourage women to travel alone. Hopefully, they won't be scared off.

Have a terrific year, and I hope there's a new get-together soon!

"Travel Abroad at a Young Age Enhances Education, Career Growth and Success"

I agree! Some of my students have found the student market a great way to get experience in tour directing and guiding. It’s also a market that has done well in spite of the economy challenges. This is the time of year to start contacting the companies.

Good Resource for Tour Operators

Travelage West has always been a good resource for new and experienced Tour Directors. It makes it easy to keep up with Tour Operators and their new tours and programs. I enjoy seeing new itineraries and the variety of interests covered, something for everyone and every age. It’s also a helpful resource for leisure travelers.
