This week, the Peter Greenberg Worldwide Radio Show broadcasts from the Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel in Vancouver, Canada at the annual Virtuoso Summit. Joining Peter will be The Wall Street Journal Travel Editor Scott McCartney with the latest updates on passenger rights, airline behavior, and congressional hearings. Matthew Upchurch, Virtuoso Travel CEO, talks about the need for airline transparency and the growing world (and changing definitions) of luxury travel. Marc Telio, President of Entree Destinations Canada, talks about the brave new world of newly accessible destinations in the great white north. Tsh Oxenreider, Author of At Home in the World: Reflections on Belonging While Wandering the Globe, discusses her decision to travel with her family to 40 countries in one school year. Michael Wiebe, Vancouver Park Board Chair, talks about the city’s well known Stanley Park—as well as the other 240 parks in Vancouver. We’ll talk about high tea at Fairmont Empress in Victoria and the city’s exploding food scene with Neal McLennan, Food Editor at Vancouver Magazine, and Canada’s best bartender Grant Sceney stops by with some mixology magic. Bruce Northum discusses his Thrillist report on 9 incredible countries where you can live for under $1000 a month (some real surprises here), and Costas Christ, Editor-at-Large for National Geographic Traveler, gives his latest report on real world sustainability. There’s all of that and more as the Peter Greenberg Worldwide Radio Show broadcasts from the Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
