I’m loving getting to work relatively early, even after having some personal things to catch up on this morning. I had a great Sunday, got to have some e time with a couple of different friends today, and we’re trying to make some plans about my future… But enough about that, it’s time for me to get some work Done. Okay, taking a trip on the airplane can be a lot of fun, or it can be one of the worst parts of your vacation. And part of that is the people who are flying with you. That’s just part of the airplane experience. You can not help who you end up flying with, but t you can work on things that can get annoying to others. And as the bible says, “Do to others as you would have them do to you,”.
First, please remember that you are going to be on the plane for sometime. Try to settle yourself into one activity and try to stay with that for an hour at least. It is annoying to have someone next to you always be moving, getting up and down, and things like that. Try not to use the bathroom any more than you have to. Getting up and down is not only going to annoy the people beside you, the people in front of you are also going to get tired of you pushing on their seats whenever you leave or return to your seats. No one likes having their seats pushed on. Try to keep that in mind as well.
Try to let the other person lead on how much conversation you will have on your flight. If they’re reading a book or newspaper that usually means that they don’t want to talk. And it’s like anywhere else, if people want to talk, they’ll engage you, ask you questions, and things like that.. Do you have any other suggestions? Please let me know
First, I have some new followers, and I want to thank you for joining me. I would love to hear from you, especially if you have questions about travel you would like to see answered on here… It’s Friday, and I still have so many things I want to do.. But anyway..
Air travel… Some people love it. They love talking to others on their flight. They can sleep without any problems.. Others of us can not get comfortable on airplanes no matter what. No matter which category you fall, you might want to read this. A company called Presidential Aviation is offering an alternative to airline that just want to get as many people to their destinations.
This new program is for small groups, and they are going to do everything to fit what your group wants to do. They are not going to make you get up at an unreasonable hour. You are going to choose when you leave. They do have some sample itineraries which you can follow if you want, but you are also free to create your own. You will be traveling with only your group…. Let me know if you are interested in something like this.
I’m having dinner tonight with a couple of dear friends.. So much to my disappointment, I’m kind of getting a late start, and also having problems with my computer just running slow. But anyway, I am going to try to get things done today.
Especially because of my disability, I am on the computer a lot.. I use it to do everything from reading, whether it’s my bible reading or fun reading, to working, to communicating with friends. I have to have the internet to do most of my work. How, I really do not understand much about technology. I know how to do my different things I’ll do day to day, but when something stops working, I’ll have to call for help. So do not ask me how any of this works, but Marriott is starting to offer guests virtual reality experiences from their own rooms.
Samsung is going to be the company to provide the headsets for these virtual tours. Marriott’s guests will then meet with other travelers who will then share their experiences with them. The travelers will then be able to share stories of their adventures together.
I don’t know about you, but this sounds truly fascinating to me. Sadly this article does not say how much anything would cost. Please let me know if you are interested in something like this.
It is a good thing I truly enjoy my job, because I’m working a lot and finding more to do all the time. Or maybe it is because I love working that I’m finding more and more to do. I don’t know. Sadl, part of my work these days is to try to figure out computer problems. I think I am going to need to figure out a new work e-mail address..
Okay, they say that London is a great place to take a working vacation. I know London is on a lot of people’s bucket lists.. Personally I would do my work in the morning, and then not have anything I had to do by the time I started my touring. I know many people like exploring Buckingham Palace. You could take in some plays at The Globe where Shakespeare had his plays performed.
They also say that Vancouver, Canada. One of the best things about this city is the food. And eating is something everyone does, and something most everyone enjoys doing on a pretty regular basis. This city also has some great art. it is also close to both mountains and beach.. Please let me know if you are interested in either of these.
I got up pretty early and ended up doing some personal things, but I’m still getting to work a little early, and I love it. I have several things I need to do. So let’s get started.
We’ve talked about working vacations on this blog before.. Something some people may not know about me is that I was homeschooled growing up. And I know one thing that everyone loved was that we could go on trips any time we wanted without missing too much school. Our family would work pretty ststeadily through out the schoolyear, and then we’d take a long summer break.. Sometimes Dad would have to go on business trips, and we’d go with him.. And I know more and more families are homeschooling for all kinds of reasons these days. So today, let’s look at some places your family could combine work and pleasure.
Vegas, which does have a lot to offer families, has wifi in most of their casinos. I know there are some great family resorts in the area that your family could enjoy together. Maybe your family can decide on the best time to work and do school, and then you can have the rest of the time to enjoy time together.
Los Cabos may be another place you can combine work and play. Yes , it was ravaged by a hurricane about a year ago, but they have rebuilt everything quickly. Most the hotels should have wifi. And when you need to take time to relax and unwind , you can take a scuba adventure or treat yourself to a spa session.
Let me know if any of this inspires you to take a working vacation. I would be more than happy to help you out.
I’m not feeling so great, really think I’m just t paying for going to bed late and getting up early several days in a row. And yes, I do know it’s Labor Day, but it’s quiet around here once more, and I love my work. So anyway…
I know that especially in today’s economy, everyone is looking to pinch a penny wherever. And that may be even more true of mothers. We’re trying to save for college for each of our children, and for our own retirement. And some of us may be making almost exactly what we need to live on.. But there are times when you should not try to save money on your vacation.
- Everyone needs to wear good, comfortable shoes when going on vacation. You are likely to be doing a lot of walking. And you do not want to mess up your feet.
- If you are traveling outside the country, you will need to drink bottled water. It’s just always a good idea to do this rather than drinking something that makes you really sick which could cost you more in the long run.
- You might want to get some kind of online back up to make sure to keep all of your pictures and things.
Can you think of other things you don’t want to live without as a traveler?
We are visiting friends, but people are in and out. And work seems pretty much never ending, and I do have internet.. So let’s get started.
Do you know that Atlantic City has some things that families would enjoy doing together? For example, there is a short cruise out of the city that will allow you and your family to see dolphins up close and personal.. If you want to try and do something quickly , some hotels might cut their rates to get more rooms filled.
There is also always lots to do in Orlando, Florida.. It is the amusement park mecca. There is Disney World, and Busch Gardens, Universal Studios, and Sea World. You don’t have to look around long to find something to do there.
Another place you can always find something to do is New York City. You can go see statue of Liberty, visit the 9/11 memorial.. And At night you can take in Broadway plays.
Kind of did a blitz through several destinations.. Let me know if you are interested in any of these.
I’ve had a wild day. Nothing went like I had thought it would. I was hardly on the computer. First we were at friends. And then we decided to to start on our trip earlier than we had thought. I should be working normally tomorrow.
It has been one of those mornings. I was kind of getting a late start anyway. And then I had problems with my internet. I think we’ve figured that out. And then I had problems figuring out what to write about.. Hopefully I am going to get on a better track now.
Everyone knows and celebrates Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. But how many of us really even aware that we have Grandparents Day in September? Karisma plans to celebrate grandparents all month long at their Generations Riviera Maya resort. Grandma and Grandpa can either go and stay free by themselves. Or they can choose to take their entire family and not have to pay for themselves.
For those families who ho choose to all go, you are going re going to be welcomed into a large suite that has an oceanview. It looks like you are going to get all your meals free at the resort. They have four restaurants you can choose from, and room service will also be available to you. You will also get all your beverages free whatever you choose to drink… Let me know if you are interested in something like this.
