Some of their enlightening topics range from State Department Travel Tips, Travelers’ Rights and Travel’n Secure to Best Underwater Photography Locations, Holiday Gift Ideas for the Traveler and interviews with local and nationally known travel authors, industry experts and celebrities.

They are also the founders of Bronze World Travel ( ), a value-based Internet company offering discounted travel packages.

Tonya and Ian truly believe in “Celebrating Life Through Travel” and Travel’n On is a natural extension of their love for travel and desire to promote cross-cultural understanding, education, sustainable tourism and global citizenship.
