Taking our Show on the Road!

Here is my interview about traveling with children, preparing for a round-the-world trip, and other related topics - of course a plug for the book - from the morning show, San Diego Living on Channel 6 with host Marc Bailey, a real pro and a nice guy as well.  Thanks to Channel 6 for allowing me to tell my story to their viewers.

Over the past three weeks, Ava, Salome and I have taken our story on the road, we have made presentations about the book and our world trip, tips, etc., at the Pine Valley, La Mesa, Vista and Rancho San Diego county library branches, as well as the Oasis adult educational program in Mission Valley.  The talks were well-received, and we loved talking about our travels!  We want to thank the county library and Oasis for inviting us.

As the long-winded member of the family, I did most of the talking, but Salome was kind enough to read excerpts of her journal, which are included in the book.  Ava and Salome answered questions, when I stopped talking long enough to give them a chance.

We were gratified by the attendance at the library talks; people were interested in what we had to say, and they shared some of their own travel tales.  Some folks traveled across the county to attend our presentations.  We also want to thank everyone who came to hear us talk.
