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 to the Travel & Adventure Show, held on Saturday, February 18, and Sunday, February 19, at Santa Clara Convention Center. Choose between the following options:
- For $9, you get two one-day admissions (an $18 value).
- For $16, you get four one-day admissions (a $36 value).<p>
Each Groupon is good for one day of admission; you can purchase an additional Groupon to gain admission both days. The Travel & Adventure Show grants free admission to children younger than 16.
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, ignite your tongue with the Fiery Foods Challenge. 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 PBS’s Rick Steves 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.
