Things are busy here at MJ on Travel, but I do have a few things to say. Just a reminder that the Chicago Seminars are coming up this weekend, and I couldn’t be more excited. As you know, I am speaking Saturday evening at a session entitled The Cruising Crowd with Marshall Jackson. In fact, I’m finishing up the presentation for our session tonight. I will be hitting the highlights on why I think cruising is a great vacation value, and offer some tips and tricks to help make sure you enjoy your first cruise or your 50th! Even if you aren’t attending my session, I hope you will say hello if you see me around the seminar.

Later this week, I will post a blog on my recent visit with the social media folks at Delta Air Lines. I spent about 3 hours at Delta HQ yesterday meeting with various groups including corporate communications, the great people at @DeltaAssist, and taking a tour of the Delta museum and the operations control center, a spot where I could spend days just hanging out and watching what’s going on. Yes, I am an airline operations geek/nerd at heart. 🙂 Can’t wait to share the details.

Another reason things are so busy here, is that we are just 3 weeks away from leaving for our big trip to Italy and our Mediterranean cruise aboard Celebrity Reflection. I think we’ve put together a great trip…an adventure….really something special that I will be blogging about along the way. I expect to be blogging on a daily basis, in fact. Just got to figure out how to keep internet costs in check. 🙂 Stay tuned. More to come this week.
