Luxury hotels #2


I have a big project I want to work on, hoping to spend some good time on it this afternoon. But first to get to the things I have to do each day, this and e-mail.

Jumby bay is the next luxury hotel we are going to look at, and it is located in the Caribbean. If you like the feeling of being away from everything, and yet to really only be six minutes away from civilization, this is the place for you. You can get to Antigua by boat in under ten minutes. And yet you can be at this hotel and never have to worry about the crowds of tourists in that city. The hotel staff caters to your every need. If all you want is to relax on the beach, this is the place for you.

The next hotel we are going to look at is in iIndia. I am not thinking luxury when I think of India, but apparently luxury can be found even here. The hotel itself is called Oberoi Vanyavillas  [not sure how you would pronounce that]. They actually have luxury tents available as well. They have a spa too. The property borders on a tiger reserve. They have great food and an excellent staff… I don’t think this would be my thing. I’m not sure I could relax anywhere near tigers. But let me know if you are interested.

My hope is to get a lot done today. So I am going to go on and do this.

Before we start on the story I am going to share today, let me go on and share kind of my vision for this business. Coming from a large family has made family very important to me. Family has always played an important role in my life. It is what I like to read and write about… I’m concerned about where I see the family going in today’s society, with a lot of couples divorcing, and more and more children living with just one parent, sometimes watching their parent live with this or that other person. But, especially for this business, I see that today’s families are so incrediblly busy. Most families who are still intact have both parents working. Children are busy with school and whatever sports or whatever things interest them. Families seem to have a hard time spending quality time together. My hope is to help these busy families takes trips together and reconnect with one another.

But anyway, let’s get to one hotel today, and I’ll get to some others tomorrow.. Peru has a hotel named Belmond Palacio Nazarenas that is actually a former palace. They have fifty five suites where you can find relaxation and rejuvenation. Their pool is described as semi private. You will be able to see beautiful mountains from your room. And there is a spa near the hotel. You may never want to leave. Let me know if you are interested.

Paris in Macau?


I had a really nice weekend. Got some good work done on Saturday. And yesterday I was just pretty lazy, and then went over to see friends. But I need to get to work. Have several ideas of things I want to do today. Better get started.

It sounds like they are going to build a mini Paris in Macau. I must confess, I didn’t know where Macau was until I read this article, but it’s located in China. This is one of the top gambling destinations [another confession, I just picked an article that looked interesting, and am just trying to make that work]. China is cracking down onits gambling industry [which I see as a good things even if it does hurt the travel industry somewhat]. But anyway, Sanas ds is building its own Eifel Tower, having gotten permission from the Chinese government.

Let’s go on and look at something else since this is short.. Apparently, Las Vegas is setting new records for itself time and again. It came close to hitting forty million visitors in both 2012 and 2013, but finally reached that goal in 2014.

Today has turned out to be somewhat crazy. And I really need to get to some other things. Hopefully tomorrow will be.

Viking #2

I am amazed at what I was able to accomplish yesterday. My hope is to grow Family Trips Inc a lot more this year. I was able to get up pretty early, so I am going to go on and do this, so I can get on to some other things.

Let’s talk about Viking again today. These river cruise ships allow you to eat outdoors any time you would like to watch the river as you eat. Outside there is also a lounge that has buffets for every meal. But the buffets are made up of lighter foods, perfect for when you know you are going to be doing a lot of walking and don’t want to be so full you can’t enjoy the tour. No matter where you eat, you will always be able to get beer or or wine with lunch and dinner. Even in the dining room, you are going to be able to decide when you want to eat and with whom. Viking allows you to bring whatever beverages you would like at no additional fee.

They also have some of the largest staterooms on the river. Viking is not a cheap cruise by any means. But the ships are elegantly decorated. They put a lot of windows in their vessels so you can enjoy the view. You will be able to read from their library which mostly has literature from the area you are exploring. I am going to stop here for now.. Let me know if you are interested.

Viking Cruises


After not really looking at work stuff for over a week, I feel like I have so much I want to get done. I had a great time with my family. I love hanging out with everyone. But since we are back home with just people that usually live here, I am going to go on and work whether it’s a holiday or not.

I’ve had a request for a Viking Cruise. So let’s explore what exactly they are today.. Viking is a river cruise company, and is one of the better known river cruise companies. The company is really pushing their products to older people, people that are just retiring. Maybe you are an older couple thinking about your grown children, and maybe their spouses on a trip. Viking does a lot of their cruises in Europe. Most of their guests speak English as their primary language. And most guests are looking to explore Europe, learning about the different cultures.. The guests are also often well educated. .. And I am already well aware of this, but Viking is a proud sponsor of Downton Abbey [which is my favorite show], and other artarartistic endeavors.

I am going to go  go try to take care of some other things for today. Please let me know if you are interested in a Viking Cruise.
