everybody! Sami here!
If you ask where I was born, it was in a little town
in the northwest corner of the state of Washington.
BUT I was born to parents with big ideas. Before
1923 when she met my father, my mother had already
been around the world, living in China, England and
Canada. Daddy came west from Chicago to live in
"Godís Country." So I grew up hiking in our forests
and knowing people of a variety of races and
religions who were always welcome in our home.
I consider many parts of our beautiful planet home.
All my life I have been studying the effects and
potentials of tourism in many cultures, from Fiji
and the Polynesian islands to Bali, Australia,
Germany, Denmark, and much of Europe and north
Africa. My goal is, with your help, to offer a brave
new alternative to corporate tourism.
I am an entrepreneur. I believe in self-employment
and in choosing a profession which makes a better
world, and a better self. At the Red Vic we
demonstrate that cultural tourism can offer
positive, educational experiences to travelers, and
that it can be a sustainable business enterprise for
individuals, families and even villages around the
world. The Red Victorian is a model for Peaceful World Travel Bed & Breakfast establishments, serving as Cultural Tourism Meccas for travelers intent on bettering their
lives and the world around them.
If you know other hospitality entrepreneurs, please
let us know. We are always reaching for individuals
and villages around the world who wish to support
themselves by offering their own personalized local
alternative to corporate tourism.
