WATCH: Vacationing in the Gulf

If you were up at 4a.m. this morning, maybe you saw me on CBS talking about vacationing in the Gulf region after the oil spill. But, I’m thinking you were probably still fast asleep. Watch my tips here and visit for the latest information, deals and tips on how you can help.

My name: Genevieve Shaw Brown. I also answer to Genny and Gen.

How I earn my keep: I work at Travelocity.

Greatest travel lesson learned: I travel for my job, but I've learned work is work, vacation is vacation, and it's best not to try and do both on one trip.

Fondest travel memory: There are so many... but a recent experience was being totally jet-lagged and waking up pre-dawn in Koh Samui, Thailand, and watching the sun rise with my husband on the beach. We talked about what all our friends and family were doing at that very same moment as the sun set back home in New York.

First thing I do in a new place: Peruse the local restaurants and map out my dining strategy for the duration of my trip. Dining strategy = eating at as many restaurants as humanly possible.

First thing I do when I get home: Put a push pin on the destination I just returned from on the map of the world that hangs on the wall above my couch.

Travel ambition: To cover that map completely in push pins.

My most beloved place in the whole world: Cockle Cove Beach in Chatham, Massachusetts.



Interesting points made. I hope the storm doesn’t hamper the cleanup operation for too long.

I’m still scared to go there lest the benzene that’s in the oil and working its way through the water and soon evaporated into the air and rained down on people.

I would love to head down there, although I am nervous about natural disasters carrying the oil inland. Thanks for the information, I am sure that I will keep updated with the websites you suggested. Cheers.

It’s sad to hear about this major disaster, and I can only imagine how this is affecting the local residents.

What a relief now that the wells have been covered. Lets just hope that it doesn’t blow elsewhere. Thanks for the broadcast. Hopefully this is all behind us now. Cheers
