The Travel Professor
Join me on a journey across the broad spectrum of interesting travel topics. We’ll discuss destinations domestic and abroad, some familiar and some off the beaten path. We take a look at suppliers like cruise lines, air carriers and tour operators and find their bargains and special offerings. Got questions? Email

Cindy from Ona emailed; " We are having a docent led tour at an art museum. I’ve never heard the term docent before. Can you explain?"

Absolutely! They are an unpaid a guide in a museum or art gallery. Normally they have received extensive training and have great personal knowledge about the subject(s) that they’re talking about. Sometimes they may accept a tip at the end of the tour. This depends on company or personal policy. If you’re interested there are plenty of places around here that would love a volunteer.
