Types of Tourism

11/24/2022
While I have talked about what a tourist is, did you know that there is a wide variety of tourism types? Everyone in the travel agency markets whether it be by word of mouth referrals, social media, print, or media they need to know who their niche or clients are and due to this, tourism has branched off into a variety of forms that are all based around classifying the trip you are taking based off of what you are doing while you are travelling. If you are a travel agent or want to become one, I highly suggest giving this episode a listen as it will give you a really great background as to what "tourism" covers.

Halloween Around the World

10/27/2022
Did you know that Halloween (or some form of the holiday) takes place in different ways around the world? While I have done my fair share of travelling for the holiday, I always find it interesting to learn about how the festival / holiday is enjoyed in other areas around the world if there is a version of it at all. Halloween is one of those holidays that had ancient routes which slowly spread to most of North America and is now continuing to spread to even more nations over the last 20 years. In this episode I briefly touch on the origins of the holiday before where in the world celebrates a version of it, who celebrates the first week of November, and where you will not find it at all.
