  • King Street, Charleston

    Capturing Charleston’s Charm with a Smartphone 

    Charleston, South Carolina is one of my favorite cites in the United States. So much so that I make a point of visiting at least once a year. Admittedly indulging in its world class food scene is my favorite thing to do in Charleston. Though Charleston is a relatively small city, as a foodie destination, it ranks right up there with the likes of New Orleans, New York, San Francisco, […]

  • This week’s #NUTS Spotlight Shines on Roni Weiss and New York Travel Festival

    This week’s #NUTS Spotlight Shines on Roni Weiss and New York Travel Festival

    This week #NUTS spotlight shines brightly on Roni, Weiss, a travel industry connector, social media consultant and travel/events blogger.

    He is the organizer of the New York Travel Festival, a new consumer travel event, a co-founder of Destination Accelerator (education and networking for destination marketers) and Travel Talk on Twitter (the world’s biggest Twitter travel chat).

    He’s spoken about social media in a variety of places, including a roundtable at NYU, Africa Travel Association‘s World Congress in Victoria Falls Zimbabwe, and Miracle Corners of the World‘s youth leadership retreat in Vermont.

    Roni was born in Oceanside, Long Island, New York and grew up in Snohomish County, Washington. He was active in sports and music, with his sports emphasis being ice hockey and his musical focus being the trumpet.

    At the ripe old age of 10, Roni began attending Edmonds Community College, receiving an Associate’s Degree with Honors in 1996 at the age of 12. He graduated from Lynnwood High School in 1999 at the age of 15.

    From 1999-2002, he attended the University of Washington, graduating with double degrees in English (with a Literature emphasis) and Drama. During his time in the UW School of Drama, he was highly active in acting, writing, directing and producing. Roni’s “Big Idea” festival was a week-long, multiple-venue festival in which he served as the Executive Producer.

    In 2004, Roni began what became a series of global trips. Over the course of less than a year , Roni visited 6 continents. He has taught English in Italy, Taiwan, France and Chile and has visited 70+ countries, including every country in Europe.

    The inaugural New York Travel Festival weekend will take place April 20-21, 2013. Tickets are now on sale.

    On Saturday, they’ll be at Bohemian National Hall, featuring an array of speakers, panelists, tastings, and other experiences. On Sunday, there will be a variety of opportunities to experience local and international culture by venturing out into New York City’s varied neighborhoods and boroughs.

    The goal of the NY Travel Fest is to reinvent the consumer travel show for a crowd seeking more interaction and a better sense of NYC and beyond.

    Talk to Strangers!

    I sat around a table last night exchanging travel stories among Airbnb guests. We somehow came to talk of food. “The best pasta I’ve ever eaten was in Cortona, Italy!” I exclaimed. The lady beside me told us about the time she was in Cortona. She arrived at a restaurant as they were closing. Seeing her disappointment, the man locking up said “Come with me.” I interrupted her, looked at […]
