The annual Travel Fair held at Andersen's Palm Tree Golf Course Conference Center Oct. 16 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. enticed more than 200 members of the Team Andersen Community to learn about travel options.

This year's Travel Fair featured more than 30 travel, recreation and leisure related companies such as the Guam Visitor's Bureau, Tropical Tourism North Queensland and the Thailand Tourism Authority, which showcased their services for the Team Andersen Community.

The Travel Fair, which was free of charge, had entertainment as well. Dancers from Thailand shared some of their native dances with Team Andersen. 

According to Shelly Ratzer, military spouse of Master Sgt. Richard Ratzer, 734th Air Mobility Squadron, the Travel Fair was well worth the trip. 

"This year's Travel Fair is a lot bigger than last year's," Mrs. Ratzer said. "There was a lot more information this year, and everyone looked like they were having a good time." 

The Travel Fair was informative, giving new travel options to the base populace. 

"Many people don't know what is on the outside of Guam," said Tech. Sgt. Kimberly Owens, 36th Communications Squadron. "The Travel Fair is great because it helps foster knowledge of all the travel opportunities that are in the entire Pacific Region, and not just those immediately outside of Guam. All in all the Travel Fair is a great tool that everyone on base should take advantage of."
