This week’s Eye on Travel comes from the Hotel Republic in San Diego, California. We’ll have an update on the coronavirus and an unexpected silver lining for travelers — worldwide. Plus, we’ll have the latest on the Boeing 737 Max and why you won’t be flying on it until late summer… maybe. Then, Arnie Weissmann, Editor in Chief at Travel Weekly, with a report on his climb to the top of Kilimanjaro — and the reasons behind the climb. What’s one of the most visited attractions in America? The answer might surprise you. It’s the USS Midway, permanently berthed in San Diego. And Scott McGaugh shares the enduring history of the ship. With wildfires still ravaging Australia, Rick Schwartz from the San Diego Zoo reports on what the zoo has been doing on the ground for endangered animals from the fires. And we welcome back Tommy Gomes, 5th-Generation Commercial Fisherman. Before your next restaurant experience, Gomes gives us the real definition of sustainability as well as what to know about uninspected fish that finds its way to restaurants and grocery stores around the U.S. — and the real definition of “fresh fish”. There’s all that and more as Eye on Travel comes from the Hotel Republic in San Diego, California.
