(BPRW) Lindell Douglas & Associates Presents Getting to Know the World's International Travel Chat and Thai Dining in Partnership with Paradise Vacation Agency


Black PR Wire -- Miami, FL (January 25, 2015) Getting to Know the World (G2KWorld) was founded Erica V. Knowles-Nelson after living abroad with her husband for almost 3 years to inspire international living and travel as well as cultural appreciation. International Travel Chat and Dining series #TravelChatDine is all about Getting to Know the World! We will gather a diverse group of South Floridians and visitors at fun, inspiring, delicious, and authentic international restaurants all the while inspiring conversation about everyone’s past international travel adventures and future travel plans (of course the travel curious are welcome to attend as well). On Wednesday, January 28th, at 7PM G2KWorld is hosting its second edition of #TravelChatDine at Panya Thai Restaurant, an authentic Thai restaurant in North Miami Beach that offers incredible cuisine that will have your taste buds thinking they are in Thailand. Erica lived in Thailand for a year and a half where she fell in love with Thai food and is offering you the opportunity to have a truly delectable Thai meal where you will have an array of options including items that are off the menu. Erica, along with Sheridan Major of Lindell Douglas and Associates and Ewan Myrie of Paradise Vacation Agency will join attendees in discussing their travel plans for 2015. Guest can preview the menu and RSVP on

Lindell Douglas and Associates is the title sponsor of the #TravelChatDine series along with Paradise Vacation Agency @PVCWorldTravel. “I really enjoyed the first event where we mingled with other travel enthusiasts. We are excited for the chance to become a sponsor for regular events as we continue to learn more about exploring the world,” said Lindell Douglas, CFP, Managing Director of Lindell Douglas and Associates.

G2KWorld’s first event International Travel Chat and French Dining at Buena Vista Bistro, began with guest mingling with each other and sharing their stories about travel. The energy at the Bistro was fantastic. Julie Mansfield, of Buena Vista Bistro, welcome everyone and introduced Erica, “I want to share my travel stories, experiences living abroad, what I’ve learned and how I’ve grown with people and I want others to have a place to share their experiences as well,” said Erica. Guest that attended completed a travel questionnaire, which encouraged everyone to make lists of the places they’ve been and talk to each other about their personal adventures abroad. There was a guest that had visited over 150 countries and an adorable 6-year-old who can’t wait to visit Paris. After attending International Travel Chat and French Dining Marie Louis, is now living in Qatar and she shared that, “It was fun and interesting. The food and ambiance were excellent. However, for me it was also life changing. One of the conversations led me to apply for a teaching position in the Middle East the next day. One week later, I had 3 phone interviews. The following week I had a Skype interview as a follow-up and I was offered a position as a teacher/trainer in Dohar, Qatar. I leave January 2. Wow! Who would have thought that attending a meet and greet just 3 weeks earlier would serve as a catalyst for traveling around the world? Only God! Be open to change.”
