Unprepared travelers are prone to rookie mistakes, such as forgetting to bring pants or slapping a monarch with the left hand rather than the right. Glean worldwide knowledge with today's Groupon: for $9, you get two one-day admissions to the Travel & Adventure Show, held on Saturday, January 28, and Sunday, January 29, at the Donald E. Stevens Convention Center (up to a $19.50 value).
Each Groupon is good for one day of admission; you can purchase an additional Groupon to gain admission both days. Children 16 and younger get in for free.
The Travel & Adventure Show dishes up a smorgasbord of globetrotting attractions, highlighting destinations around the world with cultural performances, regional cuisine, and hands-on activities. Shimmy your way to the Global Beats Stage to survey the rhythmic landscape of the globe and explore exotic songs and dances plucked from paradisiacal parties. To experience travel with more than just your eyes, take a ride on a camel or ignite your tongue with the Fiery Foods Challenge, then subdue mouth steam with a swim in the free scuba pool. Cultural spectators can become participants with hair braids and henna tattoos at the Cultural Pavilion, and would-be wayfarers can glean worldly wisdom from dozens of travel experts and tour operators.
Featured presenters include the Travel Channel's Samantha Brown and expeditionist extraordinaire and the penner of 1,000 Places to See Before You Die, Patricia Schultz. Book signings and vigorous handshakes follow each presentation.
