From The Mailbag

Ryan Van Duzer – Travel Channel Academy alum at work

Today we are in San Antonio, Texas (home of the Alamo), where we are starting our first Texas based Travel Channel Academy.  

Ironically, I also received an email this morning from Ryan Van Duzer, an alum of one of the very first Academies.  He’s doing pretty well

 Hi Michael,

> It was just one year ago and now I’m living the dream. 
> Thank you…and Lisa too. Have a great time at your wedding, your ‘short

  1. This isn’t exactly videojournalism-related, but restaurant coverage is travel-related; there’s a very colorful and unique Mexican restaurant in the Mercado near the Alamo; it might make a good subject for a story.

    The food’s excellent, too.
