For the Adventure Travel Trade Association's meeting today, I visited Alexander Graham Bell's office ...


which happens to be at the National Geographic Society's headquarters in Washington, D.C. I learned that the inventor of the telephone also succeeded his father-in-law as president of the National Geographic Society in 1898. (Thus, he had an office there).

I was at the the sprawling NGS headquarters to attend a regional meeting hosted by the Adventure Travel Trade Association. Since attending the association's world summits in Whistler, Canada, in 2007 and in Seattle in 2006, I have found their events educational, fun and valuable for business networking. Today's gathering was no exception. I am now inspired to go to the Adventure Travel Trade Association's Brazil Summit in September and perhaps the Norway Summit in October.
