We welcome back Mr. Michael Bennett, travel writer and entrepreneur. Bennett is back from a recent foray to Hot Lanta. He says it’s a moveable city in  the summertime, that everything is conveniently located. Michael Bennett joins Brian during the MIND YO BUSINESS Travel hour.


Know before you go-go-go. Familiarize yourself with your destination or destinations. After all, knowledge applied is power. By familiarizing yourself with your destination, you’ll get more enjoyment out of your experience, save precious time and possibly avoid known dangers. As a traveler, it is up to you to become aware of any/all restrictions on items you tae out of the country. Even some over-the-counter medicines are banned in certain countries.

I remember the customs folk in Freeport, Bahamas confiscated some of my broadcasting equipment, simply because I didn’t request permission to bring it in. Customs was polite, but firm. Everything was cool. My items were returned just before I boarded the puddle jumper back to Ft. Lauderdale.

Oh yeah, some things you purchase overseas, may not be allowed in the home of the free, United States.
