Mapping Adventures with the Travel & Adventure Show

Updated: Mar 1, 2020

In today's social media world, it's easier than ever to get ideas for your bucket list, see the latest travels of your favorite travelers, and develop a serious case of wanderlust. If you are ready to be more than a window shopper, you have likely run across Travel & Adventure Show.

You may attend personal development, conferences and shows like I do. The travel bug may have already sunken its teeth into you too. I've always loved to learn and explore. My love of travel started with being exposed to travel before I was even born.

If Instagram, or the term travel blogger, existed in the 90's, that would have been me back then. Each summer in elementary and middle school, I traveled abroad to visit family in Poland and explore from there. As a traveler early in life, I recognized how much I grew from the exposure of culture, experienced and people from different countries.

Since becoming an entrepreneur, I integrate travel into all I do, whether it is a staycation, media experience, and/or our hands-on transformational retreats. I choose to invest in events and shows regularly. I believe there is nothing like a live event. I've attended events with Strategic Coach, Dani Johnson, Herbalife Global Nutrition, Brendon Burchard, and Travel Blogger Exchange to name a few.

So, when I learned about Travel & Adventure Show in Atlanta in 2020, it was a show I wanted to attend with lovers of travel, global travel bureaus and experiences.

Mapping My Adventures Out for Travel & Adventure Show

Mapping my adventures for the show included looking through the speaker schedule, activities and exhibitions. My mom has talked about Samantha Brown and her show for years so I am super excited to see her at the show.

My day will start off with a media preview for 45 min at Cobb Energy Center with the show. After the preview, I am attending Samantha Brown's session 10:30-11:30.

Keep in mind this is Atlanta's schedule.

Travel Show Exhibits

The Travel & Adventure Show features numerous experiences and exhibits from travel bureaus to brands. I love to connect with people in real life for many reasons. I plan on visiting them for travel, media and retreat purposes.

I plan on swinging by between 11:45 to 1:30 p.m. Some of the booths at the show include Turkish Airlines, Miami Tourism Bureau and Photo Experience, and Bahamas. What I love to do as well for conferences and shows is look at the exhibitor map so I may map out which booths I'll visit in what order to be efficient and save time.

I am both a planner and spontaneous and will be sharing a recap of the show afterwards as well.

Adventure Awaits!

The next session I am attending in Atlanta is Adventure Awaits with Josh Gates, Explorer, Host of Discovery Channel’s Expedition Unknown. He travels 200+ days of the year, has a family and is a host of multiple shows. Can't wait to learn from him too!

Cruising for Adventure

Cruising is a way of travel I enjoy as well. My first cruise was a week in Egypt on the Nile in 2002 with my mom when I graduated from undergrad. It was a 200+ smaller river cruise. I loved having our things on a ship like a moving home and exploring daily.

My second cruise was on the Royal Caribbean leaving from Venice. My parents and I went on a cruise after my brother's wedding exploring Venice, Italy; Dubrovnik, Croatia; Kusadasi, Turkey; Corfu, Greece; and Santorini, Greece. The experience is incredible cruising. I am definitely doing it again, and returning to Santorini for sure!

The third session I'll attend includes Robin Washington with Royal Caribbean. I am excited to learn from Ms. Washington as well.

1,000 Places to See Before You Die

My goal is to experience over 100 countries before I die. I am well on my way reaching over 25 already. In each place I visit, I easily experience over 10 new things usually. You may love my transform and travel: In a Day series, like Mexico.

Patricia Schultz, Best Selling Author of 1,000 Places to See Before You Die will be doing a session and autograph signing. She highlights Petra, Jordan; Istanbul, Turkey; Monument Valley, Arizona; Antartica; Whitsundays, Australia; Pyramids of Egypt; and Kyoto, Japan naming a few.
