My FTU Tampa Talks This Weekend

Frequent Traveler University comes to Tampa this weekend, with the Grand Hyatt Tampa Bay welcoming several hundred of the lowest revenue elites on its books.

I have been beavering away at my two talks:

Sat at 1:15 Introduction to International Travel is tips and tools for venturing beyond US shores. You’ve learned miles and awards in the other sessions, now learn the rest. 🙂

Duplicate US Passport

Sun at 2:30 The World Less Traveled: North Korea, Saudi Arabia, Haiti and Other Places to Consider seeks to be thought-provoking and fun. I am selecting eye-opening destinations to consider the pros and cons of visiting and how to make it happen. Don’t worry, I’ll even throw in how get there on awards so you don’t go running to the organizers demanding a refund.

North Korea Victory Day 109

Both slots have great alternative talks that I wish I could attend myself, so I will be honored for all that attend.

But wait…I am surprise partner for one more session. The only hint I’ll give is that my slides don’t (yet) have red arrows.

See you in Tampa!

@Billy – I do these for fun and Daraius is not compensating me. He and I have very different rental car experiences so we decided to pool our info.
