Planning a multiple city trip #1

untitled

I’m home for a couple of days, and I keep debating about whether to work on this or not. I’m unsure what the rest of this summer holds for us.. I think I am going to play this trip by ear. Think that if I do have internet there, I am going to do the necessary things… But anyway, today I need to do some catching up, so glad to have gotten up earlier.

Anyway, today let’s talk about planning a multi-city trip. The first thing you need to decide is where all you want to go and how long you want to stay at each place. You may want to decide on a purpose for your trip. If you are going as a group, you’ll want to make these decisions as a group. Maybe you are looking to take a great adventure together. Or maybe you’ve always wanted to take a trip together, and have several places you want to go. You will want to make sure that you are not rushing yourselves. This is a vacation, so make sure to plan in some downtime.

You will also need to decide whether you are going to get one hotel and make that your base for your entire trip. The advantage of this is that you will have just one place to check in and out of. You won’t have to worry about being at your hotel at any certain times. But of course, if you decide to live out of one certain hotel, you will have to stay relatively close to that place.. You will have to decide whether you want to pack every single morning.

I think I am going to get back to this tomorrow… I would love to help you plan a trip like this. I make money any time you book a hotel through me. Please let me know if I can help you.

Hotels are reaching out to families

I’m not quite sure when we are starting out on our trip, but I am going to attempt to do this.

Going to Fiji is something that Australians have been doing for a long time. But now they are trying to attract Americans as well. Outrigger’s Island’s Fiji Resort is offering a special for a family of four for five nights. There are four restaurants on this property. There are two pools, one of which is for adults and has a swim up bar. The adults will also get to go on a mini cruise. You will also be able to enjoy a lot of water sports when you are at this resort.

Have you ever dreamed of going to Rome? This is another place that has a deal. Those families who book more than three nights are going to get a ten percent discount. You will be getting breakfast each day. You will be able to enjoy their gym at no extra cost.. I have to stop here because we need to get ready to go

Plan a Weekend getaway

train

Honestly, I’m not sure what’s going on with my family. I’m not sure if plans are changing once again or not. Things feel up in the air.. But anyway, we are going to figure everything out… I’m here and might as well.

Today let’s talk about weekend getaways. Maybe you weren’t able to get away for the Memorial Day weekend. In fact, you have trouble remembering the last time you got out of town with your honey. You are going to take a longer vacation later this summer with a big group, but right now you want to relax and reconnect with the one you love.. First, this may be a spur of the moment type thing, but a little planning never hurt anywhere. It will help if you have at least a rough idea of what you are going to be doing. You will at least want to know a little something about the city you are visiting.

You might do well to try to find last minute deals. It is usually best to book pretty far in advance or very close to your departure in order to get the best deals. You may be able to save enough so that you can splurge on a really nice meal.

Let me know if you would like me to help you plan a weekend getaway.

More on Cuba

Plans have actually changed as far as my travels. Hopefully we are going to be taking my grandparents to their next stop Thursday and Friday, so I will not be able to do this Thursday and Friday of this week.

Let’s look more at traveling to Cuba and what that requires.. The first thing you need to know is that travel insurance is a requirement when you are going to Cuba. You will want to make sure that the insurance provider you choose does in fact cover Cuba, because some companies are not covering Cuba yet.

Another thing you will want to check into is banking. ATM cards that are issued in the United States will not work in Cuba. Cards that are issued outside the US will work fine. They will be charging you additional fees which can add up over time. You will want to be sure to bring enough cash for your trip.

For the most part, internet is not good at all in Cuba. You are going to pay around six dollars for an hour of internet. But you will also be waiting in a couple of lines which usually take a while to get through. Some nicer hotels have internet. But again you are going to have to pay and wait in the lines.

Let me know if you and your family might be interested in going to Cuba.

Traveling to Cuba

We will be heading out on our vacation one week from tomorrow. So I know I am going to work this week, and I haven’t decided whether I am going to work next Monday or not. I’ll figure that out later.

As a travel agent, one thing that is good for me to do is to keep up with the travel news. And one thing I always see is things about Cuba… President Obama hasloosened the regulations of whether we, as US citizens, can travel to Cuba… This happened a couple of months ago, and now cruises are looking into getting this new “frontier” or whatever you want to call it.

Right now, Cuba does not have the infrastructure to handle large cruise ships. It would be great for smaller ships. One of the big reasons Obama has opened up travel to Cuba is so that we can to get to know their people and they can get to know us. So the cruises are going to be cultural tours… There will be more information as time goes by and more details are hammered out. Please let me know if you are interested in anything like this.
