I thought this week was going to be quieter than last week was. Sadly it isn’t turning out that way. And it’s kind of too personal to share on something like this.. I’m just trying to work when it is quiet.
I couldn’t seems to find the training I started on yesterday.. So today I think we are going to look more at Disney. I’ll be honest. I would love to get more people going to Disney because I love working with these people. Disney has great customer/travel agent service. Disney has Disney World, Disneyland of course. But they also have cruises, a cool resort in Hawaii, and Adventures by Disney which takes you to a number of different places around the world. Today we are going to concentrate on Disney World.
Disney is a place that is pretty full no matter what time of year you go. If you, and I as your travel agent, were to book your trip directly through Disney, you would get a full refund up until 45 days until your departure. Also book through Disney will give you a few other perks, like a little coupon book that you can use during your trip. If you are wanting to go to all the different parks in Orlando, Disney, Sea World, Busch Gardens, you will want to keep in mind that Disney does not discount tickets on less than three days. And as a travel agent, I’d love to get you to get a Disney World package, which would include tickets, a hotel room, and your meal plan.
I am going to stop for now, and get to some other things. If you are going to Disney, I would love to work with you.


I have a crazy day ahead, I have more people coming to try to figure out the aide situation, and my family has missionary friends coming this afternoon. I am going to spend the time with these friends because we only see them once a year.. I’m kind of frustrated/disappointed because I’m not going to be helping a client after hours of trying to find the right thing. They are going to pay me something, but still I wish I could have found something.. I really need experience. But anyway… I am going to be looking more into marketing later today and the rest of the week. I’m sure I am going to figure out how to get more clients coming in somehow.
Today we are going to be discussing Maldese and Dubai. Most people like to go to Maldese and then Dubai on the same trip. This is going to be a rather long flight coming and going, but should be well worth that effort. One good thing about Maldese is that our US money is accepted all over that country. Maybe you’ve been to other islands, and experienced what they call island time where the people may be a little too relaxed, even when it comes to serving you. You are going to find that most the people on Maldese are Asian and are going to do everything they can to please you. They are known for being efficient.
So why would you want to go on vacation to Maldese? First of all, it is very family friendly. There are a lot of great beaches..
I am going to go… Making sure that this does get posted.

Club Med part #3

It’s Monday, and I have several things I have to take care of. I’m still trying to find the elusive condo for one client. And I’m working on figuring out travel docs for a cruise. I know I am going to figure these things out, and eventually they will become very much routine. But right now… Anyway… Let’s get back to Club Med.
You are going to be able to go to some large buffets on each of these resorts where you will find a lot of good, fresh food. They will also have specialty restaurants where you will be able to dine at no additional charge. The restaurants are where you will be waited on. They don’t have a lot of different restaurants, because they like to make sure they have the highest quality food.
This place sounds like an excellent alternative to a cruise. Your accommodations may be larger in a resort than on a cruise ship. Resorts make excellent places to have those big family gatherings you say you are going to take, but never get around to. Each nuclear family can have its own suite. to ensure privacy. But no one will have to worry about cooking or cleaning. Your family can take adventures or simply relax at the pools or beaches. Cancun is their most popular resort. So you will have to book well in advance on most occasions.
I am going to go on and go since I have other things I really need to get to today. It is not too early to start making holiday plans. Please let me know if you are interested.

Club Med part #2

I’m glad it’s Friday, because I’m ready for a break. I’m trying to figure out this condo, using some unconventional travel agent methods. Hopefully this will work. I’m so ready to have this booked.
Anyway, let’s get back to Club Med. They have lots of different programs for children. If you have an infant, let them know and they’ll have a stroller waiting for you, as well as a crib in your room. They will also have a twenty-four hour bottle room, so you won’t have to worry about bringing formula. They have other baby foods in that room for you as well. You are also more than welcome to drop your baby off anywhere from nine to five during the days. The ratio they stick to is one worker for every four babies. That’s for babies up to two years old. From two to four years old, Club Med is starting to teach them a game like tennis. They will also be doing arts crafts and different things like that. Five to ten year olds do craft stuff as well, but they are going to get a lot of pool time which most kids love. Older kids in this group will also be doing things like rock climbing and archery. By this age, you and your kids can decide if they want to eat dinner with you, or if they want to do dinner with their friends they’re making at the resort. Your child can basically get care from nine in the morning to one in the morning
I have several things I need to do, so I am going to go, see what I can do before I’m too tired to work anymore… I’ll be back on Monday.

Club Med part #1

This is the only day I don’t have other things going on. Knowing myself, I’ll feel better knowing that this is taken care of, in case I have sometime to relax later on. I’m keeping pretty busy with clients, definitely considering that a blessing, and I am going to take care of these people to the best of my ability.
We are going to be discussing Club Med today. Club Med does resorts. They were the ones who started the all-inclusive resorts, and they are also usually the first to put up a resort at any destination. You should also know that Club Med has changed a lot of the way they do things, so if you’ve been to one of their resorts and were less than impressed, you might want to give them another try. They have places in Thailand, Mexico, Brazil, France.. Club Med also has a special relationship with my host agency M Travel, so I am going to be able to get you the best deals.
Club Med encourages its employees to sit down with their guests, to eat meals with them, to help people get to know the culture of where they are staying. Most of the employees actually live on the resort, so they know the place very well. Not only will your meals be included in the price, but there will also be a lot of activities that you can participate in at no additional cost. These include things like snorkeling, diving, and sailing.
Let’s get back to this tomorrow.

Celebrity cruises part #3

My week has been crazy. I have had some other things related to work that I’ve had to take care of, and am also having problems finding the right thing for a client. We’re looking at condos, and trying to find something that meets their criteria is proving to be somewhat challenging. Hopefully I’ve found the right thing this time.. Anyway, I’m not going to give up on this.
We are going back to discussing Celebrity Cruises. If you are in these top level suites, you are going to be getting a high level of service even in your dining room. If you are craving something particular, just let your wait staff know, and they will be able to make the arrangements. You will also be part of the most exclusive lounge on the ship… A Celebrity cruise is a great place to take a group. Maybe your family is fairly large, and you want to do something where everyone gets together.. Or I’ve also heard of book clubs going on a cruise together, or a Sunday School Class.
Celebrity has some around-the-world tours available for you, for sure starting in 2015. They also have several different itineraries out of Europe and you are more than welcome to do back to back cruises. Celebrity is changing their itineraries, so if you have been before, you might want to go again and just see what’s new. They have long and short itineraries to suit your needs.. Please let me know if you are interested in anything like this.

Celebrity cruises part #2

Today has been crazy. We had a couple of my brothers here this morning, and I kind of worked some, visited with them some. They are going on a camping trip, but may book with me one night. We’re working on that. They left, and I had to go to the doctor for a checkup. That was mercifully short, which was an answer to prayer.. Meanwhile, I know I have things that I’ve got to take care of. I was kind of freaking out earlier, but am feeling better now.
Let’s get back to discussing Celebrity cruises. Celebrity has certain ships where you can dine on the cuisine of “Top Chef” from the Bravo network. You can also watch different competitions these chefs do on these ships. Another option you have is to take cooking lessons from some these guys. Lessons are not included in the price of the cruise, so you’ll want to keep that in mind. But when it comes to extras like this, ask me. I can figure out all the info for you.
As I was saying yesterday, Celebrity is a luxury cruise line. But they are introducing what they call a “suite class”. Going through this, you are going to pay more up front, but you are going to get a lot more included in that price. You will be getting butler service. There is an exclusive restaurant for “suite class” guests. Another perk would be unlimited specialty dining. You will get the premium beverage package, including a private bar in your suite. There is also unlimited internet service for you. Ask me about those details as well.
I am going to get going on some other things once more. Please let me know if you want me to look anything up for you.

Celebrity cruises part #1

This is not going to be a normal week. Usually I’m home on my computer mostly Monday through Saturday, maybe getting out one evening with friends. This week I have a doctor appointment, a meeting with my aide agency, and Friday is Cow Appreciation Day at Chik-Fil-A which means I am going to be going around town getting free food. Meanwhile, people seem to be to be getting more interested in my business. I have three different people I’m working with at various stages. I need to get started on that, but want to make sure this gets done.
Today let’s talk about Celebrity Cruises. My host agency, M Travel, is a top seller for Celebrity, so I am going to be able to give you some of the best deals out there. So please let me know if you’re interested in anything like this. I’ll be more than happy to help.
Celebrity is a luxury create line. And this cruise line has recently changed the people they use for their spas. It sounds like the people that used to run their spas were kind of pushy to get people to buy their products. These new people they’re with do not do that at all. Health seems to be getting more and more popular these days. And with Celebrity, you can get the whole wellness package. You can get healthy meals, massages and other spa treatments, and do yoga and other exercise classes.
I think I am going to go and will do more on this tomorrow. I just have a lot of other things to do.

Planning your honeymoon part #2

I know today is the Fourth of July. But sadly I don’t think my family has plans for today, so I figure I might as well work at least some.. I know my family is going to do something later this month..
So let’s get back to discussing planning your honeymoon. One thing that you will want to keep in mind is that you will want to relax on this trip. This is not a time most people want to think tours with other people, or have a hectic schedule. You’ve likely been busy preparing for your wedding, and this is a time to relax and enjoy being with the one you love.. But of course, you as a couple will be the best ones to determine how much you want to do together, and how much you just want to be alone.
You will also want to decide together if this is a trip you want to spend more money than you usually would. I know most couples getting married are just starting across, and money is tight. But you may want to think about the fact that this is a once in a lifetime experience, spending a little extra might well be worth the expense. This might be one of the few times you might want to splurge on luxury hotel rooms, or get a massage or two together. I’ve also heard of couples that go off for a few days after the wedding, but put off a bigger trip until they can save more money. You might even be able to take more time off of work if you were to decide to wait.
Is there some foreign country you’ve always wanted to explore together? Or maybe this is the time you should to do that wine tour you’ve always dreamed of.. Whatever your dream, I would love to be able to help you plan it. E-mail me your ideas and we can get started today!

Planning a honeymoon

Today I think I’m going to continue on with our theme of couple getaways, and talk some about honeymoons.. I’m still not calling a specialty yet, I hate to do that when business is still just starting.
I know a lot of times, the groom is the one to plan the honeymoon. The bride is too busy figuring out her big day. But whether you are the bride or the groom, your engagement period may be one of the busiest times of your lives. You’re both working, obviously you can’t just stop working for your engagement period. You have all kind of decisions to make as a couple, both about your big day, and about your life together. People are wanting to throw you all kinds of showers. And of course, the two of you want to spend time together. So when it comes to planning your honeymoon, why don’t you let me help?
This is hopefully going to be one of the more special trips of your lives, and I would like to know what your ideal honeymoon is. Is there a specific destination you would like to explore? What kinds of things do you like to do as a couple? How many days do you want to be gone?.. One of the steps to planning your honeymoon is discussing dreams with the one you love. What are the dreams both of you feel had regarding this special trip? And I know that many parents are giving their children honeymoons as the wedding gifts. But you are going to need to get an idea of a budget whoever is paying for this. You may also want to talk to your friends about their honeymoons and get ideas from them. The more you can tell me about the trip you want, the better I can help you plan.
Let’s finish this off tomorrow..
