He's Black and He Travels! Meet international travel writer and blogger Greg Gross at the L.A. Travel & Adventure Show, Jan. 12-13
SAN DIEGO, Jan. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Internationally acclaimed writer and voyager Greg Gross, editor of the award-winning blog "I'm Black and I Travel!," will be appearing at the Los Angeles Travel & Adventure Show in Long Beach on January 12 and 13.
Don't miss this rare opportunity to speak with Greg about the joys and challenges of Travelling While Black, as he relates personal accounts of becoming an instant celebrity in China, and of his deeply moving naming ceremony in West Africa.
A lifelong traveler and journalist, he was spurred to create "I'm Black and I Travel!" (http://imblacknitravel.com) by lingering misconceptions of who a traveler should be.
"My wife told her co-workers about a trip of ours to Europe; how we created our own itinerary and changed it on the fly. One of them asked, 'Oh, is your husband white?' "
In "I'm Black and I Travel!" Greg offers tips for fun, fearless, stress-free travel for all voyagers, from novices to frequent-flyer royalty. Above all, he's passionate about getting Americans to see the world.
"It's vital for our education, our economy, our security, even our health," he says. "We can't afford to be Staycation Nation!"
He will be meeting fans at the show and scouting the 400-plus exhibitors for fresh insights to share with his readers, who hail from more than 100 countries.
