Cruising the Mediterranean

Joseph climbs aboard the Regent Seven Seas Mariner for a Mediterranean cruise adventure. Onboard he joins National Public Radio and other Public Television journalists on a PTV at Sea cruise experience—meeting, greeting and speaking with his Public Television viewers. Onshore he sets out on a journey of discovery and captures the enduring beauty of Venice, the history of Croatia, the multi-culturalism of Malta and the heart and soul of Sicily and Tuscany. Along the way he visits medieval towns, bustling markets, regional restaurants and wineries where he expects and finds the unexpected.

image No-Jet-Lag - Don’t let jet lag spoil your trip. Don’t spend days after arrival being a bit like a zombie, not feeling 100%, and waking during the night. It’s hard to avoid. A survey of international flight attendants said 96% of them suffer from jet lag when flying long distances.

No-Jet-Lag is a natural product made in New Zealand, (where we have no choice about flying long distances) and it’s safe and effective. Arrive fresher on arrival. It’s listed with the FDA, and taking it is simple. Chew one tablet every two hours if awake and one on arrival. Click here for more info.
