The Best Part of Travel

The best part of travel –  besides new and different places, new and different foods, new and different ways of doing and thinking about things – is the new and different people you meet along the way. Some of the most interesting people I know I’ve met because of travel.

   Such was the case a few weeks ago when I was simply in Lebanon Missouri – not that far from home and not that “exotic,” but I had never really explored Lebanon and people from around the world pass through the little central Missouri community because of its place on historic Route 66. We stayed at the Munger-Moss Motel – a real motor court from the heyday of Route 66 – and visited a very well done museum that explains the continuing fascination of Route 66.

  If you’re anywhere in the Midwest, Lebanon and nearby Bennett Spring State Park are certainly worth a weekend getaway.

   While in Lebanon, I met another writer and very friendly, inquisitive traveler from St. Joseph Missouri.  Sylvia Anderson works for the St. Joseph News-Press and covers lifestyle issues. We talked about all sorts of things, and imagine this – I happened to mention my travel app for Sutro Media that Bruce and I had just completed, but had not gone live yet.

   Sylvia is a self-confessed  smart-phone dumbie, so was as fascinated by the whole concept of travel apps, as I am. Sylvia is also a good reporter and knows what her readers are interested in.  Kansas City is a great  day trip or weekend getaway for the people of northwest Missouri.

  So Sylvia did a story about travel apps, highlighting, of course, Kansas City UncoveredIt appears in today’s issue of the St. Joseph News-Press.

  Hopefully, Sylvia and her husband and a number of her faithful readers will join us at the app release party at The Phoenix Jazz Club, 302 W. 8th St., 5-7 p.m. August 4 in downtown Kansas City.
