About Colorado Springs

Work is getting crazy. But as a friend pointed out, crazy can be a good thing. It means business is growing… And besides, I would rather be busy than bored any time.

Today we are going to take a look at Colorado Springs. This city has one of the best mountain views, but is also a thriving metropolis filled with things to see and do. This is also a great place to do adventure sports. It is also home of the Air Force Academy, making it an interesting place for those intrigued by the military.. And besides all this, it is the home of Focus on the Family which has a lot for families in and of itself.

As far as Food choices go, there is some good barbecue out there, and mostly just good all around American food. They have a wide variety of accommodations you can choose from. There is public transportation that is available.. Let me know if you are interested in visiting this place. I’d be more than happy to help you out.

630x355 (3)I have things to do later on, so I better get started. I like getting things done before going out to have fun.. I’m also trying to work on several work projects.. I have had some things come up today, turning it into a crazy day

Anyway, Viking is known for its high-end river cruises, but the picture above shows its first ocean vessel. To review, Viking cater to the 55 and older crowd. Their ships all have libraries filled with literature from the area you are exploring.. Their newest ship has areas where you can read, relax, or play games with friends..

This ship has all kinds of things that have to do with the Vikings themselves, including a museum that you will want to explore. They have a lot of food options for.. Let me if you want to be among the first to try one of these cruises.

More Bahamas islands

I have things I need to do today for sure. I’m trying to start a marketing campaign of sorts. So I am going to try to do this quickly, so I can get on to some other things.

So let’s look at some more islands that are in the Bahamas.. Bimini is known for its big game fishing. This is such a popular sport on this island that fishing tournaments are held from March to September each year. This is also a great place for other water sports, like snorkeling and diving. Another interesting fact about this place is that Hemingway spent several summers here. They have a museum about him here.

Andros boasts the largest land mass in the Bahamas. It also has the third largest reef in the world, making this a dream destination for divers. The island is a place where you will enjoy fly fishing. Most of the resorts here are eco friendly, so that might be of interest to any people as well. Let me know if you have any questions about either of these places. I’ll be more than happy to help you answer those.

The best islands in the Bahamas

I had a really nice weekend. I had no idea what I was doing, but ended up getting to spend Saturday afternoon with friends which was a great time. Yesterday was kind of quiet but still nice. My Mom is planning to get away by herself for a while once my grandparents leave, feel kind of bad about her Mother’s Day.

But anyway, let’s get started.. Do you know that there are over seven hundred islands in the Bahamas? Some of those are not inhabited, and others are not really for tourists. But let’s look at some of the more popular islands… First, there is the Grand Bahamas, sounds like a hotel to me, but it is an island. A lot of the cruiselines stop here as one of their ports. Freeport is their capital city, and is the second largest city.But Lucaya is their hotspot for shopping, entertainment and good food.. They also have a great marina, which is especially nice for those that want to get away from large crowds.

Paradise Island is known for the resort Atlantis. I know my sister and her husband have been there at least once.. Anyway, it is a great luxury resort that features a huge aquarium, a large entertainment venue, and a water park. This resort is basically all that is on the island, but it is definitely still worth the trip. Let me know if you are interested in one or both of these.

Tips for finding a good vacation rental

630x355 (2)

It’s Friday, and I’m ready to get the necessary things done.. I don’t think I have any plans for the weekend, though I would love something to come up.. I have some things I could be doing for, just waiting to see if I feel up to doing anything work related this weekend. But anyway. Let’s get started.

Let’s say you and your family have decided to go either to the beach or the mountains and rent a house for your vacation this summer. First, let me assure you that I can help you with something like that, so please just let me know.. But here are some tips if you want to do some research on your own.. First, consider looking any place you’re interested in up online. People don’t usually write ocean front unless their property isactually that. But things like “ocean view”, “water view”, or “mountain view” are subject to interpretation.

Vacation rentals usually have some guidelines as towhat you are and aren’t allowed to do at their place, as well as how you are to leave things when you leave. If you are not wanting to do any cleaning up after yourselves, be sure to have a maid come in after you.. And please be careful, this is someone else’s property. Please be considerate.

Exploring some great luxury suites

source (1)

I decided to do a couple of personal things before getting started today.. I’m hoping to get my work rhythm on this afternoon. I kind of have several things I want to do…

But anyway, let’s look at some luxury hotel suites today just to have some fun.. The first one we are going to look at is called The Royal Penthouse Suite at Hotel President Wilson in Geneva. This suite takes up an entire floor by itself. It has twelve bedrooms and bathrooms. It also has a large safe, bulletproof windows, armored doors. This place is popular with dignitaries and the rich and famous. It has to be, because the place costs about $65,000 a night, and that’s not at peak season.. I couldn’t imagine staying at a place like this.

In Greece, there is a place that costs “only” $47,000. But that does include the hotel flying you in on private jet. You will also have access to your own personal trainer and personal chef , don’t those cancel each other out? There is also an indoor and outdoor pool.

More lesser known amusement parks

Have you ever had a day where you have so much you want to do, but a lot of different things seem to keep you from making much headway? That’s kind of where I am right now.

So let’s get started. First, let’s look at Luna Park which is on Coney Island… Who wouldn’t want to go to New York City on a vacation? There is so much to do there.. Luna Park was built in 2010, and they have been adding to it ever since. There are plenty of rides, even for the smaller set. You will be able to choose from different food options.. So if you are going to the Big Apple, why not go to Luna Park?

There is actually an amusement park in the middle of Amish country in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Dutch Wonderland caters to those who are twelve and under. Your teenagers will not be interested in this place, so do be warned about that. Oh, there is one exception to that, teens will enjoy the water park.. There are also some great shows your family can enjoy together… Please let me know if you are interested in any of these. I’d be more than happy to help you out.

Things are pretty crazy around together. I’ve had some problems connecting to the internet today… It’s slow, but I think I can work.. And that’s a good thing, because I didn’t do all that much yesterday.

But anyway… When I was a girl, summers were never complete unless I got to go visit my favorite aunt without my parents. And often during those vacations, we’d take one day to go to an amusement park.. These days, I would love sometime with my aunt, but I think I’ve seen the last of my amusement park days.. But today let’s look at some lesser known amusement parks.

The first one we are going to look at is Knoebels and is in Pennsylvania. This is an admission free park. You have to pay for each ride you go, but you can go into the park at no cost. This park has plenty of rides for small kids and those who are older. Parking is also free at this place.

Next, let’s look at Holiday World, which is located in Santa Claus, Indiana. This is a relatively small park. But it does have some great rides. It also has a water park that you can enjoy as well. Please let me know if you are interested in either of these.

Future of travel?

Sadly, I’m getting a really late start, frustrating for a Monday. I had to see someone about my wheelchair. There is always this period of adjustment with wheelchairs.. But things with my family are much, much better. We’re taking care of Mom’s parents, and Grandpa has a lot of problems and was getting angry over so much… But anyway, it’s time to get something done today..

Okay, everyone knows that the internet is changing the way a lot of things work. And of course, that includes travel.. Everyone can book travel online. And if you’re wanting to book online, I would love for you to go to http://www.familytripsinc.com and see how the prices on there compares to other travel sites. And please let me know if my prices are higher, and I’ll see what I can do for you..

Say you’ve decided to go on a trip over the summer. The first thing most people will do is go to Google to do some research. You are more than welcome to send me any links that look particularly Interesting to you. That will help me know what you’re interested in doing on your trip.. Once I know what you want to do and when, I can work up an itinerary for you and e-mail that to you within days. You can tell me if you don’t like any part of the itinerary.. I can book your accommodations, transportation rentals, whatever. Let me know if you are interested.

The friendliest cities in the US

630x355 (5)

I’m glad it’s the weekend, don’t think we have any big plans, but I’m kind of ready to relax some more.. I did get a good start on my project yesterday. Hopefully something is going to come of this..

If you’re planning to take a vacation, but aren’t sure where to go, here are some options that you might want to consider… I’m prejudiced because I’ve lived in the South all of my, but this article I’m reading agrees with me that the South has some of the friendliest cities in the United States. By the way, these are the result of a survey that was taken.. And while it’s hard to really determine what makes a friendly city, they kind of meant the most welcoming.

Atlanta came in at number fifteen, and Portland, Oregon was next to them.. There are actually several that are not in the South that made the list.. I am not going to go through the whole list. But taking the number one spot is Nashville. Maybe all the music that is made in that city helps everyone, resident and guests alike, to relax and just enjoy themselves.. let me know if you are interested in getting more information on any of this.
