Join me to explore the NEW YORK TIMES TRAVEL SHOW 2019

 

Every year I like to visit new places and go to new conferences. In January 2019, I went to the New York Times Travel Show for the first time.

One Ocean Expeditions to explore the Arctic and Antarctic

PADI: Do you scuba dive? I love to go scuba diving!
