I had a wonderful time attending the Boston Travel & Adventure Show on Saturday.
I was originally planning to bring my daughter but I left at her nap time and I didn’t want to wake her so she stayed home with Dad. I’d forgotten how fun it is to attend events like this solo and be able to talk without having to always have eyes on your toddler!
Thank you Visit Miami for having a photo station. (I’m pretty bad at taking selfies and I missed my husband being around to snap a photo for me.)
Here are some photos from the show floor:
I was excited to learn more about 2 local food tours, Bites of Boston and Rhode Island RED
I think I’m going to plan a date night with my husband to try them both out.
I’m lucky that I live so close to RI. It’s a very short drive and I’ve done many trips to Providence for just a few hours to attend The Lady Project events.
My favorite booth to visit was Wanderful and they hosted the blogger panel I attended later in the day. They’re a company dedicated to women’s travel and I’m very intrigued.
I also spent some time at the Global Beats Stage watching Bharata Natyam performed by Natyamani School of Dance.
The panel I attended in the afternoon was “So You Want to Start A Travel Blog?
A Conversation with Boston’s Top Travel Influencers”
Moderator: Beth Santos, Founder and CEO, Wanderful
Panelists: Brianne Miers, A Traveling Life
Lillie Marshall, Around The World L and Teaching Traveling
SanTara Cassamajor, The Gorgeous Ingredient
I’m pretty lucky that MA has such a wonderful blogging community – that I’m already friends with Lillie Marshall and Brianne Miers. (Small world, Brianne and I both have backgrounds in the nonprofit space.)
I’m so happy I was in the audience for this panel both to cheer for my friends and learn.
It made me feel better to realize they made the same “rookie mistakes” I’ve made. They don’t have social media all in the same name. Nor do I, my twitter handle is what my AOL IM username used to be. That’s dating myself – huh?
My blog name is also a bit too limiting now that I blog about more than fitness, but I don’t think I’m going to change it since I have my instagram in the matching name.
My next travel adventure will be to Seattle, WA in February for a wedding. Too long of a plane flight for my daughter so it will be an exciting husband and wife get away.
Are you planning any travel?
