Next Travel Channel Star

Busy-with-Turtles1-463x400Back in February I attended the Adventure Travel Show in Santa Clara. I went to hear Rick Steves, Samantha Brown, and Patricia Schultz present, hoping to learn from the best.

While I was there I learned about an upcoming competition to be the Next Travel Channel Star. Apparently, the Travel Channel is “looking for personalities who are curious, adventurous and explore the world through their own unique lens.” Hey, that’s me!

And so I decided to take a deep breathe, set my ego aside, and enter the competition.

A Winning Submission

The semi-finalists are chosen to compete head-to-head while on a travel adventure, with the winner landing a 5-part Travel Channel web series. Too cool!

When I entered, there were already oodles of submissions from around the world. So if you believe in luck and good omens, please send some positive mojo my way.

On my end, I’m crossing my fingers, aligning my chakras, and visualizing a positive outcome. Here’s to my spot in the semifinal round!
