Time to Taste Hungarian Wines in the Big Apple

Kent and I are ensconced at the Holiday Inn in Manhattan, just about to go meet some fellow travel writers and sample Hungarian wines. Tim Leffel, the owner of Perceptive Travel, extended this invite, and put it succinctly–“Kent, why don’t you join us and sip free wine instead of having to buy it?”

So with that we’re out the door and we’ll find a good restaurant nearby to enjoy a New York City meal later on. Tomorrow we will meet 35 tourism officials, speed-dating style–with fifteen minute appointments designed to match up story ideas with the attractions of their cities and countries.

It’s always fun to catch up with GoNOMAD writers like Ginger Warder, Tim Leffel, and others who we’ve met during our trips over the past year. I made up a notebook that Kent and I will show the tourism folks showing the stories that we’ve published as a result of last year’s meetings and samples of our stories.

Time to go sample some vino–it’s great being back in the Big Apple again.
