Tips on getting last minute deals on cruises

 

I have a lot that I would like to get done today. After looking around for a while and not finding anything real interesting, I’ve found a website that could lead me to several writing jobs that would be awesome. I want to find assignments that will not only pay but will also give me a byline. I have worked for “content mills” before, don’t like them, don’t  want to go back to that kind o thing. Anyway, I am going to get started on that once I get to my other things.

The safest, easiest thing to do is to book your trips as early as you can, so that you can get exactly what you want. [And I’ll admit, booking a trip early is what I’d like to do. It’s just less stressful that way.] But sometimes you can get great deals at the last minute too. So now that you know that there is such a thing as a last minute cruise deal, let’s look at some ways to find them.

  • Okay, the first thing you should know that when we talk about last minute deals we’re talking about sometime between three months to several days before. It’s usually best to book closer to the three month period. Why? Because most cruiselines are finalizing their plans, getting those last payments and things like that. Sometimes people will cancel their plans for cruises for whatever reason.
  • It is pretty unlikely that you are going to get the more popular cruises. The cruiselines are discounting their prices trying to get more cabins filled. It’s unlikely that you are going to get specials on holiday cruises. But it never hurts to look.
  • You will want to look at these last minute deals when you’re just looking for a nice getaway and don’t have anything particular in mind. This might be a great way to get some time with your spouse or a few close friends. Cruises are fantastic places to relax, eat good food and be pampered.

Seeing Europe with children

A lot of history has been made here, as well as some great art and culture. A lot of parents would love to take their older children to this land, but how do you do that without breaking the bank? Let’s look at some tips that might help.

  • Where you stay is always going to be one of your biggest expenses. And in Europe, hotels are pretty strict about having no more than two people in a room. It’s best to look into airbnb in the different cities you’ll be staying. A lot of people in Europe rent out a room, giving you the chance not only to save money, but giving you a glimpse of how families work together over there.
  • Food is another big expense. Again, staying with families might take care of least a part of that. You’re like going to be able to eat with your hosts for breakfasts, and maybe even even dinner as well. But Europe also has a lot of bakeries and delis you can buy great food at.
  • Europe is a great place to ride trains, and it’s also pretty inexpensive. Here trains run on time. It’s a great way to see the countryside
  • Especially when you have children, you do not want to fill your days to the brim. Pick one big thing you are going to do each day , and then go with the flow.
  • Europe is going to have a lot of free and inexpensive events. Take advantage of that.

I would love to know your thoughts.

Is Mexico safe?

People-In-Cuba-720x479

I have had some other things I wanted to get done today today. I’m trying to figure out a place that will pay me to write travel advice. I want to do this to bring in some money for the business, and hopefully get some more clients. Figuring out when to look at writing jobs is hard. I want to get through everything I feel like I need to do each day, but then I often feel too tired to really concentrate on figuring out the writing jobs. I’m not sure what to do, but I am going to try to figure something out.

One of my sisters is going to Mexico next month… Of anyone in our family, she’s the one who likes to live on the dangerous side. As a travel agent, what I’ve heard is that as long as you’ll stay on the resorts, you should be just fine. But the United States has issued a new travel warning in light of recent events, so let’s take a look at what they’re saying now..

Basically there are certain parts of Mexico that have become unsafe because of violence. People have been asked to stay away from those areas, unless you absolutely have to go there. The big problem is that there have been battles between gangs themselves, and fighting between gangs and the Mexican government. At this point, United States’ citizens are not targeted, but of course you never know what could happen, and it’s wisest not to take that chance.

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

I want to begin by apologizing for the fast blogs over the weekend. ,i was hanging out with my sisters this past weekend, playing beauty shop, enjoying good food, watching lots of chick flicks and just enjoying being together. I wanted to do this, but wanted to do it quickly and get rack to just enjoying the fun.

So in light of my weekend, this article caught my eye. Haley Woods has been, in her words, an “Independent Nomad” for the past six years.. Before that, she says she used o worry about money and whether or not she could afford to travel. Now to be clear, she is not saying that you should go into this huge amount of debt and forget about your responsibilities. What she’s saying is that you shouldn’t let fear hold you back from living your dreams.

So in order to live her dreams, she opened a business called, “Girls Love Travel”. This is a company that helps women live out their travel dreams. They do this through education primarily.

I love helping women travel as well. But my primary focus is helping families reconnect through travel. Please let me know if you would like help booking a trip.

Where should you go on vacation?

 

I have several things I want to do today. Looking for writing jobs is just going to take a while. There are a lot of sites I might be able to work for, but going through everything, writing the people I’m interested in working with, hearing back from them.. I think this is going to be a real process. I also just have some business decisions I need to make.. Anyway, first to get through the things I have to do each day.

And speaking of decisions, sometimes deciding where to go on vacation can be a real chore. I mean, sometimes it’s obvious where you want to go. You want to gather with your family, or maybe you’re just wanting to see a friend you haven’t seen in a while. But what do you do when you’re going on a vacation by yourself , or maybe you’re taking a couple of friends, but it’s your birthday and they want you to pick where you want to go. I mean, there is literally a whole world to explore. Where should you start?

  • First, a lot of people have created a bucket list of places that they want to go in their lifetime. Do you have one of those? maybe it’s time to sit down, do some research, and figure that out.
  • Of course, there is usually a time limit on vacations, and that’s always a factor to consider as well. Unless you’re pretty unusual, you don’t want to use up most your time getting to your Time traveling.
  • If you are still having trouble making up your mind where you want to go, please get in touch with me. I can ask you questions and make suggestions that will help make your decision easier. My e-mail is sarah@familytripsinc1.com.

Some dream trips

rx

I think the things going on in this nation, and this world, have gotten a lot of people on edge. And as Christians, we may not know the future, but We know who holds the future. But sometimes it’s really nice to gather with people you love and laugh and elax together. I’m going to get together with my sisters this weekend, and I’m really looking forward to it. I’m not sure how much I am going to be online on Saturday. We’ll just see how this that goes.

Anyway, today we are going to take a look at some trips you might want to take if you win the lottery r receive a big inheritance or something like that… And for me, if you book one of these trips through me, I’ll feel like I’ve hit the jackpot.

  • There is a place in Fiji called Laucala Island. This place rents villas for one hundred fifty thousand a night. Some of these villas will come with your own private beach. Others will be in places where you can see mountains and ocean. each will have it’s own infinity pool. There will be a spa you can indulge in, horseback riding, golf. And at this price, I’d hope that this place is all-inclusive, although I don’t see anything about food.
  • Regent Seven Seas has a world cruise available. And with this cruise, most everything is included, even your airfare. Your shore trips will be included as well. You will get priority it comes to restaurant reservations. They’ll take care of your clothing. It sounds like you will be visiting a lot of places on at less three different continents. And this will cost you around four hundred thousand..
  • For around one hundred thirty five thousand you will be able to enjoy a private jet tour. You will be on this trip for around twenty-four days. Again you will get to tour several different parts of this world.

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

One thing you should be serious about on vacation

I have to be honest, I’m kind of disappointed in myself in how little I got done yesterday. Yes, I got through my normal things, but I want to figure out ways to write and get paid, and I did nothing on that. True, the computer was giving me some problems. And I did have some things to do to catch up after being away. But finding a writing job is important, it’s a priority, and I need to make more time for hat if I want to get anywhere. My dream would be to find somewhere that pays per article and I could send in as many as I wanted.. I’m not sure if anything like this exist, but I would love to find it if it does.

But anyway, I’m a firm believer that when you go on vacation, you should leave your worries behind and simply enjoy being with your family. However, you need to be careful about insects and not getting bitten by anything, especially if you’re vacationing in another country. I’m sure many of you are thinking about the Zika Virus, but there are also other diseases like malaria and dengue fever to worry about.

The threat of malaria is especially real in Asia. And while they are taking steps to reduce the risk, it is still wise to use precautions. Okay, so you know to be cautious, but how exactly do you go about doing that? Read on to find out.

  • First, you’ll want to pretty much wear clothing that covers your whole body. That is generally wise to do so anyway to be culturally sensitive.
  • You are going to want to wear insect repellent wherever you go. And look for those repellents which have a higher degree of active ingredient.
  • e the place where you will be lodging carefully. Choose the places that seem to be kept clean and that have air conditioning. And sleep under a bed net.

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

Places to consider for Labor Day Weekend

I have always loved traveling with friends or family we don’t get to see often. Talking and catching up with them makes things more pleasant to me. And then there is the fun of doing things together once you arrive at your destination.

If you’re thinking about doing something last minute for Labor Day Weekend, it is recommended that you get a rental property. Today we are going to be looking mostly at what it would cost you and three friends. But obviously if you can round up a bigger group of friends, you may be able to pay even less for the trip. And this does depend on where you live in our country, and how much time you want to travel.

  • Tuscon, Arizona is the least expensive place the article I’m reading lists. If you’re traveling with three friends, you can probably find a rental for one hundred a night, which is twenty-five a person, not bad. You’ll want to find a place that has a pool, because this place is hot.
  • Again, splitting the costs four ways, you could get a place in Hilo, Hawaii for under thirty dollars a night. I’ve never heard of Hilo, don’t think this is a big tourist trap. But unless you’re living right around there, you are going to have to fly. Getting last minute tickets to Hawaii is probably not cheap.
  • Orlando and Vegas are popular places when it comes to vacations. You should be able to get a place for under two hundred. Split four ways, it will be a little under fifty dollars. And for just a little more, you could go to Memphis or Colorado Springs.

uld love to know your thoughts about about any of this.
