This week, Peter Greenberg Worldwide broadcasts from The Athenaeum in London. Situated just steps away from St. James Park, this family-owned establishment is one of Peter’s favorites. He’s been going there for more than 30 years, and it started because of Sally Bulloch, the electric, dynamic general manager—and at the time the only woman to hold that post in a London Hotel. We pay tribute to Sally this week, as we’re joined by Tim Arthur, CEO of Time Out, who gives some of his off-the-brochure secrets for visiting London.
Also joining us is London travel writer and U.S. expat Amy Laughinghouse who talks about the best walking tours in London. All of this and more when Peter Greenberg Worldwide broadcasts from the Athenaeum in London.
Pets have never been more pampered and spoiled in history than now. Boutiques, Doggy Daycare, Pet Clothes, Boutique pet food, and owners leaving millions to their 4 legged loved ones is all the rage. So why not travel with your trusty companion. They deserve a vacation as well. If you are traveling with the one you love then for a lot of us that may mean our loving cat or dog.
This episode is for the pet lovers out there listening. Now all vacations are not for pets, I believe parents of both children and pets should take time to themselves on occassion to really be able to relax and bond with a mate or nature. But the times you want your friends with you there are lots of options and suggestions on making the best of it for you and your pet.
This is valentines month which is the day to show your loved ones you care, that means Vido as well. Listen for travel tips on flying or driving with your pets, pet friendly hotels, database on animal import requirements, and cool websites to help you make the right choice.
We'll also have a guest speaker from the Texas Wine Trail on to tell us about their event coming up that's almost sold out. Lindsey's local pet events, Yolanda's pet friendly restaurants and hotels, and more.
Do you travel with your pet? If so where? Call us at 646-716-9154
This week, Travel Today with Peter Greenberg from Cairo, Egypt. We’ve been broadcasting at least once every year from Egypt since 1998. Tourism numbers are down drastically in Egypt, but, as a veteran traveler to the region, Peter argues that this is perhaps the best time to go! You’ll find hardly anyone at the pyramids, and while more than 300 boats usually travel down the Nile in Luxor, this year only about six are operating. Joining Peter will be John Boulding, CEO of Insight Vacations to discuss why his boat, the Tosca, is running—as business is slowly starting to improve.
A few ambassadors also stop by to give their situation report on Cairo and the rest of the country. Then, we go on a quick detour to visit celebrity Chef John Besh to talk about another city that knows all too well about recovery: New Orleans (especially as we near the tenth anniversary of Katrina). All of this and more during this week’s episode of Travel Today with Peter Greenberg from Cairo, Egypt.

This week’s Travel Today with Peter Greenberg comes from The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, Colorado, one of the great grande dame icons. The official opening of the Broadmoor was in 1918, a building constructed on the same land where the original Broadmoor Casino stood before burning to the ground. Once a hotel that only allowed “old school money tabs” or cash as forms of payment, the Broadmoor’s concession to the 21st century is that they now accept credit cards.
Richard Sauers, Executive Director of the Western Museum of Mining & Industry, joins us to discuss this functional museum and why people travel from around the world to see the working—and fascinating—mining equipment. Then, Harris Kalofonos of the International Olympic Committee details how Colorado Springs became an Olympic Sister City and what that really means. All this and more from The Broadmoor.
