Journeys : April May 2010
Our consultants are extremely well--travelled and are always keen to share their experiences, both through stories of their adventures and in person. This edition of Jour neys includes Rosem ary Ravani's story of her Vietnam adventure with Pandaw Cruises. Next issue we'll feature a China trip related by Helen Coleman and Kirsty Johnstone and Sasha Lyeontyeva's travels to Las Vegas and the USA's West Coast. Of course our consultants have many more stories to tell, so if you are interested in another destination please drop in and discuss your plans with your local consultant. Up-coming client functions Another way to learn about your next destination or travel experience is through our client functions and expos. R ACT Travelworld invites members to join us for several functions during 2010 including: 18 April Examiner Travel Expo (Launceston) 15-17 June Cr uise presentation s (Ulverstone, Launceston and Hobart) 27-30 July APT Canada and Alaska and Europe River Cruising (statewide) Please phone 1300 368 111 or drop in to your local R ACT Travelworld office to register your interest in these events. Major world events in 2010 and 2011 Shanghai will be hosting the World Expo 2010 from 1 May to 31 October 2010. The theme of the Expo is 'Better City -- Better Life' and it signifies Shanghai's growth as a major world economic and cultural centre. Shanghai is a tr uly amazing city -- why not take the opportunity to explore it as part of a visit to Expo 2010? Qantas flies daily to Pu Dong airport just outside Shanghai and the experienced consultants from R ACT Travelworld can assist with all arrangements including flights, accommodation and transfers. Another big event in 2010 is the FIFA World Cup in South Africa from 11 June to 11 July. To make the most of the opportunity, plan to include an African Wildlife Safari (see Chris Benbow's story in the Febr uary 2010 edition of Jo ur neys). We can assist with itineraries and bookings to help you enjoy your sport, your way!
