"Syndicated Travel Expert Stephanie Abrams Waves Travel Fairy Godmother Wand Over Nathan Warmack, Sending Him and Kilt to Scotland! "

BOSTON, Feb. 23, 2006 (PRIMEZONE) -- Leading syndicated radio travel expert, Stephanie Abrams, didn't skirt the issue when she learned about of Nathan Warmack, a Jackson (Missouri) High School senior, denied entry to his school dance for wearing a kilt. While Nathan was battling the school district and board for the right to wear a kilt to school events, Abrams dealt with what she saw as more important aspects.

"It was clear to me that Nathan, turned on to his Scottish heritage from the film Braveheart, and who spent much time researching the history of Scotland and his family's lineage, had a passion to connect with his ancestors," Abrams explains. "I saw a bigger need in Nathan than that of being permitted to wear his kilt to his high school prom. Nathan needs to stand on Scottish soil and breathe Scottish air while exploring castles and historic sites. So I waved my Travel Fairy Godmother wand to make a little magic in the lives of Nathan Warmack and his parents, Terry and Paula," Abrams states.

Abrams announced the results of her brand of magic to the Warmacks on her nationally syndicated radio show, 'Travel WITH Stephanie Abrams,' (http://www.sabrams.com) heard Sundays coast-to-coast in the 7pm to 9pm ET time slot and visited with the Warmacks live in her Travel Expert role on 'Traveling Feet', (http://www.travelingfeet.com) heard on Saturdays in the 11am to 1pm ET time slot. Abrams notes that the itinerary for the Warmack family includes flying Continental Airlines (http://www.continental.com) from St. Louis to Edinburgh, a Mercedes available for their entire 9 day visit provided by 1car1 (http://www.1car1.com), the U.K.'s largest independent car rental company, staying at 5-star luxury historic castles throughout their visit including Dalhousie Castle (http://www.dalhousiecastle.com) and Glenapp Castle (http://www.Glenappcastle.com).

More surprises are on the way, according to Abrams. "With the help of Visit Scotland, Dressed to Kilt, a company specializing in modern-style kilts based on the traditional look, is customizing a shirt, Bonnie Prince Charlie vest and kilt in the Warmack's Mac Craw tartan.

"For Nathan, this trip is an opportunity to find himself in the fabric of the tartan plaid itself and the fabric of the culture of Scotland. The Stephanie Abrams Travel Fairy Godmother had to jump in and make the travel connection for this special young man who stood up for what he passionately believed in," Abrams concludes.

In a "Thank You" note to Abrams, Nathan's concluding words tell the whole story: "You have changed my life and I'll never forget that." For the Travel Fairy Godmother, Abrams notes, "That's what it's all about!"

Both radio shows originate from Berkshire County, Massachusetts broadcasting America's Premier Cultural Resort. Travel WITH Stephanie Abrams is iPod-able at http://www.businesstalkradio.net . Past shows are archived at http://www.sabrams.com.
