Travel Safety

I’m linking this post to Outdoor Wednesday at A Southern Day Dreamer. Outdoor_Wednesday_logo_thumb[2]

It has been too long since I have posted so I apologize for letting life slow me down.  Blog updates don’t really take me too long, and I could do them from my phone if I knew how (on the to-do list!).  Between getting side-tracked and being indecisive about what to post, I just don’t do it.


Today, I want to share a quick blurb about a travel safety seminar I went to this weekend.  It was put on by IHS Training.

This particular seminar was intended for mission trips but most of the information was completely applicable to every-day travelers.  The idea is to develop a sense of world travel knowledge without having to endure the hardships first-hand.  Some of the concepts were kind of scary but we were encouraged to not become paranoid, just aware.

The gentleman that taught the class, Brian Webb, did a fantastic job presenting the information.  There was a lot of information but I didn’t come away with information-overload.  I will be a better traveler because of this class.

I don’t have a lot of photos,DSCF0033 sorry.  If you travel, consider taking a seminar of this nature.  A little bit of knowledge can go a long way in making your trip easy and fun.  Being unaware of the every-day drama going on around us can turn tragic in short order. Tags:

Is he local? My MOPS group are looking for speakers and I'm thinking that safety when travelling with young children are very important. It is on my mind all the time right now since I will soon be travelling alone with my two kids to Norway. Let me know so I can pass his information on to my co coordinator for my MOPS group.

Hi, I guess my last comment on this disapeared.
I was wondering if you could send me some information on this Brian Webb if he is local. I tried to Google his name and all I got was an artist. I would like to see if he might be a good speaker for my MOPS group next year.
