Vacation on your mind? Wherever you roam, make sure you have the visit you want at a price you can afford. Gwen O’Looney wants to share her travel secrets. Budget YES!! But most importantly, how to individualize your trip for the culture and assets of the countries you choose. What to take, how to travel, where to stay and how to make sure you have some adventures along the way. Megabus, budget airlines, Eurail pass, ridesharing, home stays, hostels, and much more. Come with questions.

Gwen O’Looney served two terms as Mayor/CEO of Athens. Among her many accomplishments are unifying the city and county governments, opening The Classic Center and Lyndon House, and hosting the 1996 Olympics and “Panic in The Streets” album release by Widespread Panic. Today, she hosts “Lunch With Gwen” every Thursday at noon on WXAG 92.7 FM and is a panelist on WUGA’s “News Matters.” Radio. Her many volunteer roles include RSL Advisory Board and Friends of the Library!
