Just a friendly reminder that I’ll be giving two talks this weekend at the New York Times Travel Show – one on Saturday and one on Sunday.

NYT Travel Show
10th anniversary of the New York Times Travel Show.

Here’s the information on both my talks. Tickets are $12 until January 17, and then $17 if you buy them on January 18 and after. Children are free. You can buy your ticket here.

Saturday January 19th at 5pm in Seminar Room 1: Beating the System: Travel Pointers for a First Class Lifestyle on a Budget

NYT Travel Show 5pm

To see the full schedule for this year’s program and for more information on the event visit, the NY Times Travel Show website.

Team TPG will be holding giveaways throughout the weekend so make sure you’re keeping up with Twitter and Instagram so you don’t miss them! For those of you who will be able to make the show, there will be a brief meet-and-greet and informal Q&A session after each of my talks. I hope to get a chance to meet you this weekend, so come with questions, and be sure to say hi!

As always, it means so much to me to have my readers there, and I hope you can make it to either or both of these great events.
