Terry Jones and Frederick Marx will share their insights in a fascinating lecture entitled “19th Century Travel and 21st Century Travelers” to be presented at the Tahoe Center For Environmental Sciences on the campus of the Sierra Nevada College on Sunday, October 20, 2013.
Terry Jones, founder and former CEO of Travelocity.com and chairman of KAYAK.com, will focus on how 21st century technology can get savvy travelers the best deals online by knowing the perfect time to book airline seats, how to score hotel upgrades and who to call for the best travel advice. His expertise will save you time, money and stress. Frederick Marx is best known for his critically acclaimed film “Hoop Dreams”. His newest film, “Journey of Zanskar: A Monk’s Vow to Children,” follows the struggle of a Himalayan village in Zanskar, one of the most remote places on earth, to protect its traditional Tibetan Buddhist culture as the outside world begins to close in.
