People are getting into healthy living more and more these days. And while there are many opinions on what is truly the best way to eat and get exercise, most everyone agrees that you should keep some kind of routine going even while you are on vacation. More and more hotels and cruise ships are doing their best to see that you can keep up your routines when you stay with them.

And Uniworld is one of those companies that is trying to help. Uniworld is a luxury tour company which has a boutique river cruise division. A lot of their ships are going to have great fitness centers. They will also have some wellness options in their spas.

You will also have the option to attend lectures that will help rejuvenate your spirit. Personally I’d be careful of anything like this that is not overtly Christian. You might get into some strange New Age stuff otherwise.

And of course, you will also have fitness options when you go on your shore excursions. For example you will be able to go hiking or kayaking. I would love to know your thoughts about any of this.

Adventures by Disney

I am going to confess that this is the arm of Disney I know the least about. So we are going to be learning about this together.

I do know that Adventures with Disney are trips to different destinations with guides between Disney. The Disney people are going to take good care of you. You’ll be staying in the nicer hotels. Disney is going to do a lot of the legwork for you. You will also be enjoying fine meals.

One of the things that is important to remember is that story is always Disney’s focus. Each trip is going to have not one but two guides. And together they are going to share the stories of the place you are visiting. And with Disney, you are going to get a lot of the extras. You will be getting backstage passes to the events you are going to. You will also get special access to other places.

Let’s say you are going to a museum that might not be the most interesting thing to your children. Disney people are going to take your children, and not show them movies or just babysit them. They will take your children through the museum and make it exciting for them.

Please let me know if you would like to know more about any of these trips. I would be more than happy to help you out.

Beaches’Turks and Caicos

Hopefully it is clear that most days I try to write about trips the average family can take. But sometimes it’s just fun to write about luxury, and since it’s Saturday we are going to have a little fun.

If you go to this resort, you are going to find a lot of bungalows. And these bungalows are great if you want a private getaway with your spouse. Some of the larger bungalows may also work well if you are looking for a nice place to go away with some of your girlfriends.

There is a hotel, and it sounds like it is very luxurious. You are going to have four-poster beds, nice full baths, separate sitting areas. There is concierge service that is available. And if you want to pay even more, there is butler service as well.

They do have a children’s club. It is called pirate’s Island.

I don’t know anything else about the children’s club. This article doesn’t say anything about the food, or whether this is an all inclusive resort. I’m sue I could find out more information if you would like. Please let me know.



I am going to get back to the Disney stuff, but I thought I’d take a break for today and maybe tomorrow. Europe, probably everyone has questions about whether it is still a safe place to travel. My sister is about to do an exchange study program in Europe, so I have questions about all this too.

The authorities are saying to be cautious and use good sense when traveling in Europe. It is probably best to travel in groups. You should be especially careful during holidays or when places might be more crowded than normal.

However, pretty much everyone is saying that it is still safe to travel to Europe. But be sure to keep up with the latest news before leaving your hotel room for the day. And please, please listen to the authorities if an emergency does come up. The authorities are there to keep everyone safe. And they know how to best do that. This is not a time to see how much you can do on your own.

These are some of the things you should keep in mind when traveling to Europe. Can you think of other things you should do? Please let me know.
