Welcome to the premiere
episode of Travel Talk only on Wedding Podcast Network.  Travel has
become more popular than ever in the world of destination weddings
and honeymoons because of the Internet. International resources are
at our fingertips and WPN promises to bring them to you.  Let’s
explore and discover different destinations around the world with
experts in the travel and tourism industry – travel agents,
authors, editors, event planners and newlyweds – ready to share their
firsthand experience and advice.  We will provide information to help
make the planning less complicated and more fun.

Where are we going
today?  Paradise in the Caribbean.

Wedding Podcast Network
was invited by Gordon “Butch�? Stewart to the inaugural
weekend celebration of the Mediterranean Village at Sandals Grande
Antigua Resort & Spa. Like Sandals says “Love is all you
need.�? It was voted World’s Most Romantic Resort ten
years in a row by the World Travel Awards and we can see why.

Hear Holli &
Robert’s firsthand experience at this romantic resort and spa.
There is something for everyone.  We visit the award winning Red Lane
Spa exclusively at Sandals. We tell you about the variety of dining
options and culinary delights, the pools and swim up bar, the white
sand beach, the lighting, the gardens, the land and watersports
activities, evening entertainment and so much more.  The live
performances by Shaggy and Sean Paul were a special treat.  Celebrities spotted: Brooke Burke, Stacy Keibler, Teri Polo, Kimorra
Simmons and Rumer Willis.

This is your
opportunity to get to know Chairman & Founder Gordon “Butch�?
Stewart, CEO Adam Stewart, and Managing Director Jaime
Stewart-McConnell.  We also had the chance to interview Chief Romance
Officer Unique Vacations Joann Delgin and Cheryl Hammersmith of
Hunter Hammersmith & Associates about their new Luxury Included
Honeymoon brochure.  Internationally celebrated event designer and
wedding planner Preston Bailey tells us about his signature
WeddingMoons destination wedding packages only available at Sandals.

We were delighted to be
amongst our wedding industry colleagues: Rebecca Grinnals, Sylvia
and Ben Weinstock, and Diane Forden, Editor in Chief of Bridal Guide
magazine. We made some new friends in the world of travel: Lorri
Robbins, Publisher of Recommend magazine and Penny Sheldon, certified
travel specialist.

We would like to extend
a special thank you to our hosts the Stewart family and the concierge
team for a very memorable Luxury Included Vacation at the
Mediterranean Village at Sandals Grande Antigua Resort & Spa.
