A Visit With the Grannies on Safari
Your Roaming Boomers have had the opportunity to meet with a lot of cool people since we launched our online travel magazine. While attending the AARP @50+ National Convention in Los Angeles, we had the opportunity to share a cup of coffee with Grannies on Safari®.
Now, these aren’t your average grannies.
Regina Fraser (bottom left) is a marketing, media and communications strategist. She held management positions in corporate communications, video, advertising and marketing for 31 years with a major airline.
Pat Johnson (bottom right) is a career arts administrator. Prior to uniting with Regina to create the Grannies on Safari®; she served as the founding director of the Museum of the African Diaspora in San Francisco as well as a number of prior executive positions with arts organizations around the country.
Regina has been to 35 countries in her travels, while Pat has visited a staggering 75 countries.
These two best friends combined their passion for travel, culture and connecting with people in distant lands to create Grannies on Safari®, an Emmy® award winning TV series.
Currently, Grannies on Safari® is shown on most public television stations throughout the United States and it is syndicated on the UK Travel Channel airing in 117 countries.
Together, the Grannies have been to exotic locations like Zanzibar, South Africa, Morocco, and even found themselves having to be flown out by the State Department while visiting Egypt during that country’s most recent uprising.
Can you imagine? Sheez!
We recommend that you follow along on the adventures of these two beautiful grannies as they explore exotic locations and bring it back to you through their television show and website.
We’re very happy to call Regina and Pat friends, and we’re certain to come calling for advice when we begin to add exotic locations to our repertoire as well.
