Having a destination wedding is getting more and more popular these days. And that’s true whether you are getting married for the first time or having a renewal of vows. Yes, you can do something in your hometown and have a very nice celebration. But why not try something exotic and something that is going to require minimal planning on your part? A lot of resorts are going to have wedding planner that are going to take care of all the details of your special day and trip.

Doing your celebration this way will allow your celebration in Mexico. Or maybe you can have your special celebration in Cancun, which is known as an excellent place for honeymoons or romantic trips.

Palace Resorts has several properties in Cancun. And some of those are adults’ only resorts which will have plenty of activities for you and your guests. They have some excellent golf courses, some great spas, and some fantastic restaurant choices. A lot of times these huge hotel companies are going to have more than one property in the area. Some will be adults’ only while the others will not, and you will be able to enjoy all of the amenities on the sisters’ properties.

Hotel amenities you have to try

630x355 (2)

I feel like we’ve been talking a lot about cruises a lot lately. So today let’s talk about hotels and some special amenities certain hotels provide.

The first one we are going to look at is Cliff House Maine. This is a great place to stay if you are wanting to spend your days taking adventures. But you are going to be pampered when you do return to the hotel. This is a four star property. But you have to go rock climbing in order to get to this property.

Pacific Reef Hotel, which is in Oregon, has just put in a twelve foot screen so that guest can watch movies by the ocean. You will not have to worry about the screen during the day because it is totally clear. And if you want to watch the movie from the comfort of your room, you can do that too. You will have speakers in your room which will allow you to hear the movies as well.

Sure, you’ve heard of breakfast in bed, but have you heard of breakfast in your own plunge pool? You are going to have to go to Bali to enjoy this treat. This is at the Ayana Resort and Spa Bali, which is a five star property. You are going to be served a three course breakfast in your own plunge pool. There are all kinds of other amenities at this resort, but this is by far the most unusual.

I think I am going to stop here. Please please let me know your thoughts.

Seaborne’s Quest

630x355

If you should take a cruise on this ship, you will be one of just 450 guests. So that means that the service is going to be better and more personal. You are also likely going to get a higher quality of food. I’ve had a crazy morning, but I think I’ve finally gotten to the place where I am going to be able to get some work done. I have so many things I would like to get done today. We’ll see how much I can accomplish.

But anyway, today we are going to look at Seaborne’s Quest. This ship is more of a large yacht than anything else. If you should take a cruise on this ship, you will be one of just 450 guests. So that means that the service is going to be better and more personal. You are also likely going to get a higher quality of food.

Here you will find very comfortable and spacious accommodations. The picture above was taken on this ship. So as you can see, you are not going to be in cramped quarters by any means. You will also have a nice bathroom, complete with a tub which is not always easy to find on cruise ships. The person writing this article found the beds and other furniture to be a little stiff, but that’s a matter of personal opinion.

I would love to know your thoughts or any questions you might have about Seaborne.

Who is the best?

630x355 (11)

I have so much I want to do today. Knowing I want to start publishing some articles, the first step I took in that direction was getting organized, or least starting. That has kind of led to some more ideas, like I want to read these ebooks on business that I’ve downloaded, but have not read. I feel like I need to read them and make more of a strategic plan in what I’m doing.. I am also considering contacting the Make-A-Wish foundation and seeing if they might give me some leads. I’m not sure how all that is going to work, but we will see what happens?.

I’m usually just talking about one cruiseline. Today let’s discuss which are the best premium cruiselines in different categories, and why they are recognized as the best.

Cunard is recognized as the best in design. They have done a wonderful job with combining the old and new looks of the ships. Disney gets an honorable mention when it comes to the newer design of ships. And Holland America does A fantastic job with the old fashioned designs.

When it comes to accommodations, Disney does a great job with having family friendly staterooms. They were the first to come up with the idea of a split bathroom. Holland America has copied their idea. But Celebrity Cruises was the first to come up with better storage and bigger bathrooms.

Everyone has their own opinions when it comes to how much how much activity a cruise ship should provide for its guests. Some people like to focus on exploring the destinations. But if you want a cruise with a lot of onboard activities, you should try a Disney cruise. They are going to have a lot of activities for all of the different ages.

I would love to know your thoughts about any of this.

Ponant: the French cruiseline

630x355 (3)

I have several things I’m thinking about doing. Right now I’m trying to decide what I might start on between today and tomorrow and what will keep until Monday. I’m wanting to get some articles in the newspaper and things like that.

My oldest niece is enamored with Paris and all things French. And I know she is not alone. When we think of French life, we think of luxury, fine wines, fantastic food and pastries, and nice accommodations. Ponant is a luxury cruiseline. They have five ships, and they are going to hold very few guests compared to carnival or something like that. They are going to take less than three hundred guests per ship, giving their guests a level of service and intimacy that few other ships can offer.

The staff on board these ships is going to be highly trained. They will see to all of your needs in an unobtrusive manner. Now since these are much smaller ships, there are only going to be two restaurants you are going to be able to choose from. But you will be eating very fresh foods from the different places you will be visiting.

Ponant may limit itself when it comes to number of guests. But they do have a wide variety when it comes to the destinations you can see with them. They have tours you can do of Europe, which includes Russia. They will go to places in North and South America. You will also be able to explore the Caribbean and other places with Punant..

Yes, Punant is kind of on the expensive side.. You may want to save up and do one of these cruises for a special occasion, like a honeymoon or an important anniversary. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Get ready to fly

imagesUBE8WTX2

I need to say something. I have flown to go on an actual trip just once. And I wasn’t a huge fan of the experience myself. We flew at night, and pretty much was asleep, everyone except me, that is. And as far as business goes , air is one of the trickier parts of the business. But I know some people truly enjoy flying. And of course, unless you want to take months on your trip, if you want to go anywhere international, you are going to have to fly. So today, let’s take a look at things that will make your airport experience better.

  • Get checked in as quickly as you can. Yes, to be honest, the self-service kiosks may not be the most reliable. Try to give yourself plenty of time to do this. Having to rush always makes things more stressful. Ask someone at the airport for help if you need it.
  • You are going to want to go through security. as soon as you can to make sure that too is taken care of. Remember that the government is writing the regulations, not the airport themselves. Try not to take any frustrations out on the personnel. They’re just doing what they have to do.
  • People are going to appreciate ┬áit if you go on, take off your shoes, belt, earrings, and prepare for your security check as you are waiting in line. This just keeps everything moving more efficiently.
  • Delays are going to happen at the airport, they always do. The best thing you can do is to be prepared. Take your laptop or a book you’ve been wanting to read. Especially if you’re flying with kids, you’ll also want to bring some food and toys for them.

I would love to hear ways you make your time in the airport easier.

When should you travel with kids?

I love getting up early.. I never start working right when I get up. I always do my quiet time first thing. I also check news, do some writing and check Facebook. Today I was also working on some business correspondence stuff. And I think I have an online meeting this afternoon that I wish I had remembered earlier. But anyway, I’ll figure everything out somehow. For now, let’s get down to business.

Parents love to do special trips with their children. But how much will your children remember of what you do? Are they going to remember an exotic vacation at a luxury resort anymore than a visit to Grandma’s? One parent suggests that making big trips with our kids before they are teenagers is a waste of our time and money.

I would like to make one exception to that. I think you should take your children to at least one Disney park when they are seven or eight. Children this age are going to experience the magic in a way older children will not.

But back to what this article is saying. When children are young, they need to do things like take naps and maintain a sleep schedule. That’s pretty difficult to do when you’re halfway around the world, trying to make the most of your time. Many children also are not the most adventurous when it comes to timeFood. They like hamburgers , macaroni and cheese, and pizza more than anything.

Why are we really traveling with our children? Is it really to give them all these wonderful experiences? Or are we looking for morebragging rights than anything else?. I would love to know your thoughts about this. Do you agree or disagree? Please let me know.

What to do in a crisis

I have some things I need to do later today so let’s get started on this… I really try to keep this blog pretty upbeat because I like writing about fun stuff. But terrorism does not seem to be going away, here and abroad. Today let’s look at some things you can do to be prepared.

  • To start with, please do your research. Know where you can go in case of an emergency. Have a plan that everyone knows and understands. This is especially true if you are in a place you have never been before.
  • You might want to consider joining the government’s STEP Program. STEP sands for Smart Traveler Enrollment Program. If you join this, you will not only receive updates about your desired destination, you will receive help if a crisis should arise.
  • This seems pretty obvious, but when you go somewhere, always know how to leave. Pay attention when your airplane attendants tell you what to do in case of emergency. Know at least a couple of ways you can get outside of your hotel.
  • The point of a vacation is to relax and reconnect with the ones you love. But it’s probably wise to glance at the news at least once a day to make sure you aren’t walking straight into disaster without knowing it.

I would love to know some other safety tips you may have.

Hotels that allow you to get away from everything

630x355 (2)

It’s Monday morning, and I have some different projects I want to look into and start. I’d really like to get some bookings in by the end of the year. And my mind is going a lot of different ways, trying to figure of ways to do that. If anyone here is interested in taking a trip, trip, please let me know. But before I start working on other things, I want to make sure that this does get done.

Summers can be busy for parents, whether their children are toddlers or teens. Summer tends to be a time when there is a lot of activities. And Fall seems to be a time where a lot of people are getting back into the normal routines of life. Fall may be a great time for a romantic getaway with your sweetie. Today let’s look at a couple of hotels where you can get away from everything.

The first one we are going to look at is Secret Bay, which is in the Caribbean. The place sounds like it is pretty remote. You will not have access to twenty-four hour a day news. And they have a deal going on which will you and your spouse a perfect romantic getaway. This package will include an in-room couples’ massage, as well as an yoga session. You will be in a private villa instead of in a hotel. You will be enjoying a welcoming dinner.

If you have always dreamed of going and staying somewhere where stars have stayed, you might want to go to the Casa Kimberly. This is a place where Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton used to spend time together. This place is in Mexico. You will be getting a nice suite. You will also get a massage with aroma therapy. And again, this is in a very remote place which will ensure a good bit of privacy.

Please let me know if you are interested in either of these. You can also let me know if you are interested in taking a romantic getaway of any kind. I’ll be more than happy to help you plan something.

Places you might want to visit this Fall

 

fall is

Whether you have been on vacation this past summer or not, Fall is a nice time to take a trip, even if it is just a weekend getaway. Fall is a time where the weather is usually pretty nice, not too hot or too cold. And so this is a time where you can find some great fairs and festivals.

And the first place you might want to look for festivals is Louisville, Kentucky. They have a pumpkin carving festival which runs for several weeks in October. But there are plenty of other things to do in Louisville besides look at pumpkins. There are caverns to explore. The city has a nice museum about the life of Mohammed Ali. And there is also a museum dedicated to the city’s most famous attraction, which is of course the Kentucky Derbe.

Portland, Maine is another place that you might want to consider visiting. It is an excellent place to take in some Fall colors. They also have a nice food and wine festival which takes place October 20-23 this year. This is also a great place to get seafood..

Savannah, Georgia is another place you might enjoy, especially if you are a fan of Halloween. They have a lot of folk lore here. There are some hotels in this city that are allegedly haunted. Savannah’s hhistoric historic district is always a nice place to visit.

I would love to know your thoughts about any of these places. I would also love to know if you have any festivals in your area that you would like to highlight.
