Where's Johnny Jet?

Kung Hei Fatt Choi! I was fortunate to be in Singapore this week to celebrate the beginning of Chinese New Year. It’s the second year in a row that I’ve had that pleasure and it’s really quite an experience. A full report is coming soon but in the meantime, I’ve just completed my around the world trip on Singapore Airlines’ A380 – the world’s largest commercial aircraft. The whole experience was like a dream and if you want to see my trip report and pictures click the link below. I’m back in the States for at least a week as I’m speaking to the Monterey CVB and at The Los Angeles Times 2012 Travel Show (January 27-29th). The latter is open to the public and is at the LA Convention Center.

It’s always a great time as they have some of the world’s leading travel experts speaking like Rick Steves, Arthur Frommer, and Rudy Maxa. Here’s the link to the full line up. I’m speaking both Saturday and Sunday at 11:15 a.m. so if you are in the area come by and say hello.
