Too busy to blog?

I hate to blog if I can’t do a great job, but I hate to not post either.

Last week was a very full week.  Since I graduated from ITMI last December I was able to attend the ITMI Symposium and 25th Anniversary in Sacramento last week.  It was a large convention of ITMI alumni, Tour Operators, and other Travel Industry people and I was able to interview with about 20 companies.

I took the FAM trip of Sacramento and a second one to Coloma – Gold Country.  Then did the same trip for training to do school tours. This last week I visited the state Capitol, Sutter’s Mill, Sutter’s Fort, the Railroad Museum, and Old Sac all twice!  So, hearing other tour guides’ commentary twice, and doing my own reading and research I feel like I know the information.  I now need to weave it into interesting commentary and storytelling.  Since I always go overboard – I have even more books on hold for me at the library to read, and a list of other museums, and locals tours to take – because I want to really know Sacramento.  And, of course, Sacramento history  involves much more than just Sacramento, therefore I want to learn San Francisco, Monterey, Napa and Sonoma, and the Missions as well…for starters.  I loved networking and meeting other local tour directors.

I better get busy.  Besides the above mentioned research, I have follow-up calls and emails to make, and new leads to contact.
