Frommer, Steves, Wright–They All Love GoNOMAD!

Day three at the big show. Last night we returned to our favorite Italian Osteria called Gelsi, we discovered this temple of the cuisine of Puglia in 2005, and hadn’t been for a year. The chef came out to chat with us, (but mostly with Cindy in Italian) and we complimented him on the wonderful timballo and my turkey ossobucco. Splendisimo!

Early on Saturday we had a visit from Arthur Frommer, who chatted with us and gladly took our little brochure that ‘said everything about you guys.’ Later a show visitor told us that he and his daughter Pauline had mentioned GoNOMAD in their talk. Then another Travel superstar, Rick Steves, a tall guy, stopped by and I told him how much our readers enjoy the commentary about travel he wrote on our site. “You can use more of my political stuff, and I’m happy to update anything,” he said, while he came and paid us a visit to the booth.

Then the wonderfully scruffy and real Ian Wright–when presented with Kent’s business card, he exclaimed, “I love you guys!” So that’s why this show is so fun. We have paid our dues, we’ve climbed up to a high rung, and now we’re getting very well known in our industry.

Next up–conquer the rest of the world!
