What makes a shopping experience unforgettable? Is it the town, the store, the product? Does the gift or product tell a story? Is it locally inspired and handcrafted? From the Christmas Markets in Europe to artist studio tours in the Pacific Northwest Linda Kissam knows and loves shopping! Hear her Big Blend Radio conversation with Nancy J. Reid and Lisa D. Smith where she shares her favorite retail experiences, and sends them on a Love Your Parks Tour story mission to find and document as many unique and ‘sparkly’ shopping destinations as possible!  

Known as the ‘Food, Wine & Shopping Diva’, travel writer Linda Kissam is a longtime Big Blend Radio guest and magazine contributor sharing stories about her food, wine, shopping and travel adventures across the country and around the world. A seasoned writer with a background in publicity and tourism management, Linda is also the President of the International Food Wine & Travel Writers Association.

‘The Diva’ specializes in easy, breezy destination stories sharing her favorite things about the places she visits. As she sips with the winemaker, dines with the chef, or shops with the gift concierge, she dishes out insights on the fabulous, the famous and the unforgettable. Whether riding the rails in Europe, hot air ballooning in Temecula, cruising on the Douro River, or being pampered at luxurious spas and resort, she’s investigating the local buzz to provide her readers with tips on what to buy and what to try.

Linda loves finding and sharing what makes each place she visits so special. Her time spent as a publicist for a well-known wine region taught her it’s the story behind the product and the experience of the place that makes the trip memorable. She never knows if “the story” will end up being based on finding the perfect latté, ordering Pommes Frites with Parsley Butter in a small French bistro, searching for an Internet café in Sicily, or attending a wine seminar aboard a cruise ship. She never travels without a notebook, camera and a great pair of Brighton flats. She has an addiction to personable people, interesting wines, gourmet coffee, fabulous chocolate and spicy foods. Anyone who knows her will tell you that she loves traveling anywhere, by any means, and is somewhat obsessive about jewelry and a good taco.
