And one of those giggle-inducing shows happens to be anything by Samantha Brown over on the Travel Channel. I knew when I started seeing her billboards around town (how cute is this photo) that her new season must be coming soon. Which is great, because to be honest, her seasons are so short that just as you start to get into them, they’re over and done with.
Now of course, we all know of my love for Sam. I mean, not only is she adorable, but she comes across as the kind of gal you could be good friends with (according to her blog, she was just here in Santa Barbara filming an episode on my birthday – so bummed I didn’t know). My roomie and I used to watch all of her “Great…” shows whenever we could and lament over how when we grow up, we’d love to be her. I mean seriously, who wouldn’t want to get paid to travel the world and spend time in some of the swankiest hotels (like on her old “Great Hotels” show) or get private tours to some of World’s the most exclusive places.
Due to my love for all things Samantha Brown, I was contacted by her team* to let me know that her new series starts this weekend. All I can say is Woohoo! I’m glad to know she’s back.
And let me just say, the folks at Travel Channel totally get social media and how it works with creating community and building relationships. More businesses could benefit from learning this skill.
* I’m telling ya, blogging and tweeting can pay of in ways you never even thought of
