Travel Expert Patricia Schultz: Emerging Destinations—Places You Have to See

Patricia Schultz, Travel Writer; Author, 1000 Places To See Before You Die and 1000 Places to See in the United States and Canada Before You Die

Patricia Schultz has a dream job: traveling the globe and writing about it. She is the author of the international #1 bestsellers, 1000 Places To See Before You Die (translated into 25 languages) and her new book, 1000 Places to See in the United States and Canada Before You Die. With these works, she has reinvented the idea of travel book as both wishlist and practical guide. She was recently chosen by Forbes as one of the 25 most influential women in travel, and was executive producer of the Travel Channel’s TV show based on her first 1000 Places book.

Schultz will focus on emerging destinations, featuring four eye-opening trips that have slowly and recently been securing their places in the global limelight: Iran, Myanmar, Cuba and Antarctica (including the Falkland Islands and South Georgia). Listen to her experience and anecdotes and learn why Americans are joining the still limited number of travelers who return with similar tales of an authentic, safe, fascinating and welcoming adventure.
