A new kids’ club

630x355 (2)

I got lots done yesterday, and hope to do the same today. I’m trying to make some good business decisions, and find some women’s’s entrepreneurs groups I can be part of online. I can’t spend anymore money. If anyone knows anything like that, please let me know.

Kids’ clubs are a big topic of discussion in the travel industry. Parents usually want some time with their kids, but they also want some time to themselves.. of course, leaving your children to fend for themselves is never a good idea. Some families decide to bring an older teen along as a nanny, but that can get expensive.  A good alternative is finding a resort, or cruise, that have kids’ clubs. Most of the time, the price of the kids’ club is included in what you pay up front.

Next month, the Grand Fiesta Americana Coral Beach Cancun will Open the door to its new kidss’ club. The 40,000 square foot place cost around two million to build.. This has been built for children ages three to twelve, and will encourage communication between children themselves and between children and their parents. They’ve done their research and found that while children of this age take instant internet access for granted , they still love playing with other children. So at this club, you are going to get the best of both worlds… Please let me know if you are interested in something like this this.


Prepare for vacation


It is Monday, and there are so many things I would like to get done today. But I’m the type of person that likes getting the important things done first. So let’s get started with this.

July fourth is this Saturday, which means that a lot of families have about a month left before the kids return to school. So if you haven’t taken your vacation yet, now would be a good time to start planning. And if you would like help planning your vacation, I would be more than happy to help you. I am able to book, making money off of, most any hotel, car rental, cruise, or theme park. Booking things like that is the way I make money, and I would really like to make some more bookings. So please let me know.

To get started, it might be wise to sit down and have a family meeting. Discuss what you want to do on your vacation. Decide where you want to do, how long you want to be gone. And then you can write me at sarah@familytripsinc.com, and I can help you start planning your vacation.

New Adventures with Disney


It’s Friday, and I’m feeling kind of restless, not sure what I want to do. But I am going to make myself get some things done, hopefully I can get more done than I did yesterday.

Today we are going to look at Adventures by Disney, which is the tour section of Disney. I am listening to an online training, and the first trip they mention is one to Austria, Germany and the Czech Republic. You will go back in time in Austria to see a zoo the way it would have been in the 1700’s. You will also be learning to make streudel and other delicious treats.

Disney also does a trip to Italy. There you will be exploring colleseums. Disney allows you to see the Vatican at night when no one else is around. You will also be seeing Venice.

Disney always with delicious meals and excellent accommodations wherever you go.. Let me know if you might be interested in something like this. I would be more than happy to help you out.

Cold War Ship turned into luxurious yacht

630x355 (1)

Some days I feel like I have everything together. I am able to get things done. Things come together well. I have great ideas… And other days nothing goes right. This morning was the latter. But thankfully I should have several hours to work this afternoon, so let me go on and get started.

The picture above is of what used to be used as a spy ship during the Cold War, if you can believe it… The ship actually had its beginnings as simply a normal ship. But in 1970, it was turned into a spy vessel, and it was used by the Soviets to spy on us.

But now it has been transformed into a luxurious yacht. You can rent this yacht for about twenty-five thousand each week. If you do decide to rent it, you will have the whole thing to yourself. It has an indoor pool for your use, and an outdoor Jacuzzi. It also has a lot of sportingequipment that is at your disposal.. My big question is how would you eat on this thing? At this price, are you cooking for yourselves?.. Let me know if you want me to find out more about this.

Duck Commander cruise


I’m trying to make the most of this time that is very quiet here at home, trying to do some planning/strategizing for the business. Hopefully I am going to get a lot done and figure some things done.

If you don’t know this by now, I am a big proponent of the family. I am very pro life, very much an advocate of traditional marriage.. That’s how my whole family was raised. And so, the one reality show we’ve kept up with in any way is Duck Commander. We watched it when we had cable.

So when I heard on the radio this morning that the Robertson family was doing a cruise I was intrigued. They are going to be on the Carnival Victory this October.. And when I say they I mean Phil and Kay and some of their crew, along with Si, who will be telling stories as only he can.

Let me know if you are interested in doing something like this. I will be more than happy to help you out.

Breezes Bahamas


I don’t know if everyone experiences this. But sometimes it feels like the more I want to accomplish, the harder it is to accomplish anything.. My schedule is somewhat different with Mom gone and having aides coming for different hours. Anyway, I need to try to get some things done today.

If you are looking for some last minute deals on a summer vacation, you might want to try going to Breezes Bahamas. If you were to book by the end of this month , you could save up to 40%. This is an all inclusive resort all their room have free wi-fi, satellite television, telephones and CD players.

This property is on one of the favorite beaches in the area. It is about a ten minute drive from the airport. And when they say all inclusive, they mean it. They do not allow you to even tip. You are free to eat and drink anything you would like. Your activities such as rock wall climbing and sailing and surfing are also included.. They don’t even charge you to have weddings there.. Let me know if you want to take advantage of this deal.

Sandals Royal Bahamian

630x355 (2)

I’m sorry about Friday. Things ended up being pretty crazy where we were on Friday, and I decided to just enjoy the time with friends rather than try to work. But now I am home, and should be back to my normal routine for a while, and honestly I’m looking forward to getting some serious work done, especially for the next couple of weeks while most of my family is gone… So anyway, let’s get started.

When you go to the Sandals Royal Bahamaian you will be pampered from the time you arrive to the time you leave. You will be picked up from the airport in either a Rolls Royce or a Mercedes if you are in a top tier suite. You will also be greeted with a glass of wine… This resort was once a getaway of a duke and duchess, as well as other socialites. There have also been portions of movies shot here.

This place mixes European elegance and Caribbean charm. It has a combination of rooms, suites and villas that you can choose from. Again, those staying in top tier suites will enjoy butler or coincierge service. They may also enjoy their own private pool.

I am going to stop here and get to some other things. Let me know if you are interested in something like this.

Enjoying luxury with children?

630x355 (2)

Mom and I are visiting some dear friends, but I feel like I can do what I consider necessary for work and still enjoy time with our friends.. We have some things to do later this afternoon, so I’m trying to get to everything now.

Maybe you and your husband loved to travel. You may have even enjoyed some luxury travel together. But now that children have started to come, you are wondering if you are going to be able to do luxury travel anymore.

Most luxury resorts and things like that have children’s programs.. The children’s programs usually have something for each age group.. You might have something for babies, but then again you may not. That’s something I can look into for you when you want to go somewhere. And these children’s programs will keep your children safe and well entertained while you and your husband enjoy spa treatments or hang out by the pool.

While you are enjoying yourselves, your children will have things like huge jungle gyms, miniature golf.. They will have their own pools to enjoy. Especially older kids will have their own clubs.

Vacation underwater

We’re visiting with some dear friends, but I feel like I need to do some work. I can’t take the whole summer off for sure.

For those that are really into the environment, you might want to try going to Key West.. They have a pod style room which is going to have pretty much everything you want underwater.. You are going to have wifi, a high definition tv, a bathroom with a shower..Room service  You will get there through an underwater elevator. Of course, your view outside of your room is going to be the ocean. And all proceeds will be going to a coral reef funding project.

This is something that they’re expecting Hollywood stars and people like that might go for. In fact, they are taking applications for the first guests.. This is kind of the guinea pig of these things, and they are planning to build several more throughout the world.

Planning a multi-city trip #2


First, I saw that a lot of people have started following me recently. I want to say a big thank you to everyone. And now for a little shameless advertising. I’m a travel agent who would love to help more people plan trips. My website is http://www.familytripsinc.com. E-mail is by far the best way to communicate with me, and that is sarah@familytripsinc.com

Okay, say you are going on a multi-city trip with a small group of friends. You will want to get each person going to make a list of places they want to visit, restaurants they want to eat at, etc. And then set aside some time to discuss your different hopes. This will help decide a lot about your trip, where you are going, how long you want to stay at each place, things like that. It always to have some kind of plan in place.

But at the same time you will want to be flexible. Some things are going to take longer than you think. You may have car trouble. Or you may hear about something spectacular from the locals that you do not want to miss out on.

And of course, you will want to discuss your budget for this trip. You will want to make sure that everyone is on the same page as far as money matters. Is someone struggling financially, but you can’t imagine taking the trip without him? Discuss whether everyone is going to to pay for his own, or might you help one another?

I’m not 100% about whether I am going to have internet where we are going tomorrow. I think I am going to try to work some if I can.
