Boston Globe Travel Show Feb. 6-8

If you are sick of the snow (and the piles and the cold and the T breaking down and spacesavers and…) then you have the opportunity to dream of warmer climes at the Boston Globe Travel Show this weekend. You may be saying, Wait, isn’t this the Boston BOOK Blog? Yes – and our friends at the New England Mobile Book Fair will be the on-site bookstore at the event for all your travel book needs. There will also be readings and talks from travel book authors, including international bestselling author Patricia Schultz (1,000 Places to See Before You Die), Max Grinnell (who has written about his favorite walks, including Boston), and the Frommers (yes, those Frommers). There will also be travel tips, giveaways, culinary demonstrations, live music and dance, and a lot more.

Pick up your tickets at the website, and head over to the Seaport World Trade Center this weekend. And as you’re trying to dig out your car for the eightieth time this week, think of this:
