Facebook-ing for Dollars

I saw an interview on the Today Show with Matt Lauer and a contributor from Conde Nast Traver magazine about quick 3-day getaways. While her getaway ideas were interesting, I really liked her tip about saving money through social networking.  "Like" your favorite hotels and airlines on Facebook (or "follow" on Twitter) and deals will be sent directly to you.  Gotta love that. I'm "liking" the heck out of things right now....

About Me

My photo
I didn’t dip my toe in an ocean until I turned 25 and my friend Sandy and I traveled to Puerta Vallarta, Mexico. After that week, I was hooked. I loved being somewhere new; smelling the smells, tasting new food, seeing how other people lived. It energized me. As luck would have it, I landed a job that allowed me to travel all over the US and often to Canada. Being a sports event television producer, I was on the road all the time. That's when my love affair with travel began. Now, its 20 years later and still no one gets more “geeked up” about planning a vacation than I do. All I need is a destination and some travel companions and my fire is lit! I start delving into my favorite hotel sites, sifting through photos and reviews, comparing, contrasting -it’s like an addiction. The travel shows with tips and trends? I study them like a playbook. I LOVE doing the things most people hate doing before they go on vacation. Whether it be searching for a food tasting tour with a local or discovering a romantic B&B in the middle of New York - I’ve found it and I’ll share it with you. So....where should we go?
