Deliberate Travel in the Age of Today
July 20 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm$5
Deliberate Travel in the Age of Today, an educational program that addresses current issues with international excursions, will be presented from 6-8 pm Thursday, July 20, at the Global Village Museum of Arts and Cultures.
Today’s globe-trotters face different challenges than just five years ago, from safety and security to communications and travel apps. How to combine the genuine trip experience with awareness and personal protection is often the central question.
“People want a real, authentic travel experience without the vulnerability of being in a foreign country,” emphasizes travel consultant Sari Gartner. “By being deliberate about your trip and using the available tools to be informed and mindful, you can create a safety net. The uncertainty of today’s travel scene should not be discouraging. Let’s empower you to take the necessary steps to ensure your experiences are favorable and memorable.”
For example would you know who to call if you had an emergency in France? Do you know about registering with the US Embassy in a foreign country? Gartner will explain these and other tips for the global sojourner in a world too often engulfed in turbulence and unrest. Admission is $5/person with members free.
