Quotes about the Dunlap’s Plan Your Escape® travel seminars:

“You guys are really dynamic speakers and had a lot of good travel tips to share. Nice! Your story, TV appearance, and book are all good.”Regina Fraser, Grannies on Safari, Travel Speaker and Emmy award winning travel TV host

“Wayne and Pat presented at the University of San Diego’s University of the Third Age and did an outstanding job! What I was most impressed with was the way they maneuvered a very sophisticated travel audience, who thought they knew everything, and had them scrambling to take notes of all the wonderful resources they shared with the audience. Their information is current, timely and inspirational. After listening to them present we were all dreaming about where our next vacation would take us (and doing it for less than $100/per day per couple!). Thank you Wayne and Pat for joining us at this year’s USD’s U3A program!”Jodi Waterhouse, Director, Corporate and Professional Education, University of San Diego

“Wayne and Pat’s book talk for Plan Your Escape® clearly inspired Oceanside readers to get out and travel. The Dunlaps’ enthusiasm is contagious, their travel tips are immediately practical, and they have demonstrated that their remarkable international lifestyle truly is attainable!”Monica Chapa Domercq, Principal Librarian, Oceanside Public Library
