“Travel is my favorite past-time—and something that SNA has nurtured,” says SNA President Janey Thornton, SNS. How about you? Do you start planning the next trip before your current journey has ended? Or are you the type of person who never has left your state, let alone your own county?
Whatever travel type you might be, this month’s issue of SF&N has something for you, as it presents its annual issue on personal wellness. Throughout this edition, you will find “Travel Diaries,” real-life accounts from your SNA colleagues. Learn how Phyllis Hodges learned to love motorcycling with her husband, how an airline schedule change brought Katie Wilson lifelong friends, how SNA helped JoAnne Robinett overcome her travel fears and many other great stories.
But first, consider your travel concerns in a new light while reading “All Aboard.” This article addresses ways to cope with—or get around—such challenges as fear of flying, money worries, travel hassles and more. And you can ease into the idea of traveling by exploring the armchair adventures featured in “Opening a Window to the World.” SF&N offers eight ways to wander the world without leaving home, sweet home.
Next, chuckle as you read “Have Plans, Will Travel.” You probably haven’t seen vacations like these! From walking tours of Ireland to snorkeling for a good cause to staying in an igloo hotel, there is a vacation for every interest.
Of course, SF&N promotes one destination in particular: Chicago. It will be the site of SNA’s 61st Annual National Conference, July 15-18, 2007. “Chicago” takes you inside the Windy City for a sneak preview of attractions, shopping, eateries, museums and tours. Meanwhile, the “Annual National Conference Program Highlights” will give you all the exciting details about ANC! Don’t forget to fill out those registration forms.
You also might consider volunteering for the Global Child Nutrition Forum, which occurs in conjunction with ANC. In “Wish You Were Here,” last year’s foreign delegates share their joy in visiting the United States and their eager desire to interact with you at the conference.
