Let The Games Begin: Play "Where In The World Is Carra Riley?"

Carra Riley is a writer, speaker, small business and real estate consultant going on a 104 day voyage around the world on Semester at Sea with her husband Tom. They live in Williams, Arizona and are taking their local community with them as they travel from the East to the West. This is the announcement post of the new INTERNATIONAL game... Where in the world is Carra Riley?

The Theme of the Spring 2011 voyage is  "Global Interdependencies: Thinking Globally Acting Locally"

"Glocal: Someone who is able and willing to think globally while acting locally to improve the human condition and the planet we inhabit."

                    7 wonders of the world

Williams, Arizona IS an International melting pot with visitors coming from all over the world as it is the "Gateway" to one of the SEVEN natural  wonders of the world, the Grand Canyon. Photo image courtesy of Bob Ribokas His appreciation of one of the seven wonders of the world is amazing! 

As the Author of Cosmic Cow Pie...Connecting The Dots  I am inviting you to PLAY a game of engaging as we journey around the world sharing transformational concepts and information.

My vision of the trip for the experience is three fold.

  1. Learning how we are connected globally, what the outcomes of this connection are and how we can be a positive force in this process as we go "glocal".
  2. Bring back the message from around the GLOBE on how we can better serve those coming to visit our country and specifically our local Williams, Arizona community.
  3. The contestants can ALL take the information they are sharing and then implement those ideas in their community.

Carra has been creating videos on youtube with her WilliamsArizona1 channel and posting pictures of this diverse community on flickr.  She has posted on her blog information about fasinating local places to go and things to do in the Williams area such as Bearizona, The Grand Canyon Railway and the Grand Canyon Coffee and Cafe.

Carra and Tom love their local community and are looking at this experience as an opportunity to help bring global issues and concerns back to the local community to process this information and start thinking about how all the dots connect together. The Williams News ran a great story about the adventure and Williams-Grand Canyon Chamber of Commerce is excited about the opportunity to share Williams with the world!

Enter the "Where in the world is Carra Riley?" contest.

What you can win!

How to enter and rules:

Each comment on any of the social media site will be counted as one point.  The more you comment the more points you can build up!

Sounds like a great contest but if I won I would have to take vacation and shut down things here. In this economy, that probably isn’t feasible.
