Everyone who follows this blog knows that I’m no sports fan. However, there are plenty of other things to do in San Antonio, and today we are going to look at some of those..
- First we are going to look at a pretty obvious one. Remember the Alamo. This attraction is going to be offering extended hours through March 25th because of spring break.. If you are a fan of historic fiction, you will want to stop by their gift shop where Author John R. Knaggs will be signing copies of his new novel about the Texas revolution.
- Texas is one of our states that borders Mexico, and so you will find Mexican, and other Spanish, influences throughout Texas. San Antonio itself has four missions, and you will be welcome to take a free guided tour of any of them.
- San Antonio is home of one of the Six Flags amusement parks. Enjoy a day of roller coasters, games that let you win prizes, and lots of junk food.
I would love to know your thoughts about any of this.
It’s time for spring break. Next week, a lot of my family is going to get together. And I’m just going to play by ear how much I will be working while everyone is together.
If you live in the Southeastern part of the United States and haven’t decided what you want to do for spring break this year, you might want to consider going to Florida. Yes, I know that a lot of other people will be going down there, but that is because Florida has so much for people to do, especially when they want to be on vacation. Let’s look at what Florida has to offer.
High school and college kids want to go places like Panama city or Destin. These are beach towns which have a lot of the carnival type rides, a lot of places to shop, and plenty of restaurants and nightlife..
Parents, are you looking for a nice beach to take your family, but want something a little quieter? You might want to try places like Port St Joe or Cape San Blas. These places have a lot of condos, though I have no idea how many would still be available in the next couple of months.. There will still be nice shops and museums to browse and nice restaurants to enjoy, but it will be a calmer atmosphere.
But if calm sounds totally boring, you might want to try Orlando. This city is home to a lot of the big theme parks. Young children will have their dreams come true at Disney World. Older children might prefer Universal studios or Busch garden. There is also Sea World, and that is hardly all of the theme parks.
I would love to know which place you would prefer
Cruises are a popular way to take a vacation these days. You can usually find an all-inclusive deal on a cruise. There is often a wide variety of activities you can enjoy on your ship. If you have a specific interest you want to pursue on your vacation, they have a lot of themed cruises you can enjoy. But what happens is when group of your friends wants is to go on a cruise, and some people really want to do the cruise as inexpensively as possible and other people are looking for that luxury.. Well, I have a couple of ideas that you might want to consider.
The first is Norwegian’s “The Haven” experience. With The Haven, you are going to have very spacious accommodations, and will not be bothered by the masses because only the people staying in The Haven and their guests will be was allowed in this area. You will have your own restaurant. If you want to go to restaurants in other parts of the ship, your reservations will be the top priority. You will have the service of a butler and a coincierge. You will also have your own pool.
Now let’s look at MSC’s Yacht Club. Again, you are going to have your own exclusive area to hang out with just the people that you choose. The suites you stay in will be extravagant. You will have top priority in all of the restaurant, as well as top priority in all of the entertainment venues A butler will be at your service day and night. I would love to know your questions about any of this.
The more I use this new communication device of mine, the more comfortable I feel and faster I become, which makes me feel better about everything. I’m a lot faster than I would have thought I would be at this point. I’m relieved to say the least..
But anyway, let’s get back to talking about Palladium Hotel and what they do for families. First they offer a lot of activities that families can enjoy together. Take some cooking classes as a family. Enjoy doing arts and crafts. Is your family into competition? Try beating one another at video games.
Do you want to know what Palladium hotels has exclusively for adults? You will have valet parking. You will not have to worry about unpacking or repacking anything while you are at these hotels. You are also going to get complimentary access to parts of Palladium’s spa. If you want to do activities that are in the area but are not part of the resort itself, a family host will be around to help you.
Now let’s look a little more at Palladium in general. It sounds like they have properties in the United States, Mexico and the Caribbean. Their family program is just one of several programs they have, in case you’re hoping to do a romantic trip or a girls’ getaway..
I would love to know your thoughts about any of this or any questions you might have. Please let me know.
Next week my family is going to be together, and I’m not sure how much I am going to work. It kind of depends on a lot of things. And I’m still trying to figure this out, still trying to get all my passwords straight and all that good stuff.
If you read this blog, you know that my heart in this business is to try to help families reconnect through travel. Everyone is so busy these days, families need to make time to spend together. Vacations are a great way to do that. And Palladium Hotel group is trying to make themselves a great place for families to stay and play together. Not only do they have some beautiful hotels in some gorgeous locations, they are doing what they can to help families make memories together. How do you do this, you may ask. Let’s find out.
For starters, families are going to have their own lobby where they can check in or out any time they please. They will also have their own restaurant. Families will get their own pool where you will have a waiter to make sure no one goes hungry or thirsty.
Kids are going to get their own robes and slippers. The hotel staff will draw children bubble baths. Children will also get cookies and milk as part of their turn down service in the evenings as well..
But children are not the only one who will be pampered at these hotels. Come back to find out how the adults will be pampered.
We’re going to get back to the mov
- ie locations discussion.
- I know that if there are one there have to be one hundred of these movies. But I think it’s the newest King Arthur movie that has been filmed around Snowdonia. This place has a beautiful national park.
- Do you want to go visit the place where Luke Skywalker is exiled to? The place is called was Emerald Isle. This is a beautiful place, even if it is pretty barren.
- I’m hoping things are going to get better soon. I’m still trying to figure out a lot of stuff.
I am going to try to do this, and hopefully I’ll do a better job than I did yesterday.. I’m still doing a lot of experimenting and figuring things out as I go along… x
I think a lot of us like to watch movies when we want to relax. But have you ever wanted to go to the places where specific movies were made? Let’s look at a couple of these today.
- Do you have any Indiana Jones fans in your did you family? You might want to visit Petra, Jordan where these films were made. This has become a popular destination since the films were made.
- Slovenia might be small, but it is where Narnia was made. If I am remembering right, the place has some absolutely gorgeous spots.
The adjustment is going to take more time than I had hoped. I’m working to figure out a new computer. Lots of logins to remember and figure out. I’m also having to figure out a new way to access everything. I am going to get better, but it is going did they used to to take a while
I should let you know that I will be getting my new communication device set up tomorrow. I know that I am going to have a period where I’m adjusting to all the new stuff, but I’m not sure how long it will take or how much it will effect this blog.
Family reunions, a lot of us have them. If you’ve been put in charge of planning your next reunion, why not plan a cruise that everyone in the family can enjoy.
- The first thing that you will want to do is to talk to a travel agent. Please talk to me. I would love to help you set something like this up. And if I book it, I will make money without charging you a dime..
- You are going to want to start planning this pretty far in advance. I’d say to at least give it eight months to a year, so that everyone in your family can know about it and plan to be there.
- It would probably be wise to book a fairly inexpensive cruise, so that will be prohibitive to anyone. And besides, the less expensive cruises seem to have more to offer families.
- Something that you will want to do pretty much as soon as you make your decision to do this is to set up up a Facebook group so that everyone will know what is going on. And if I am doing this cruise, I would like to be added as well so that I can keep up with everything too.
I think we are going to get back to this tomorrow. I would love to know your thoughts on any of this.
Personally, I’m not a huge fan of animals. My siblings have pets, and I like them because whose when we’re with the pets we’re with the people. And this is not a post that will tell you to Fido on your trip just because you can’t stand to leave him home. There are disabled people who truly need the help of a service dog. And I’m also going to say this. , a lot of times, the people who need service dog the most do not have visible disability.
Anyway, stepping off of soap box now… Cunard is a cruiseline that will allow service animals to travel with their owners. The animals must have kennels. They must also have a pet passport and comply with the Pets Travel Scheme.. Okay, the kennel seems. But let’s look at what it takes to get a pet passport.
- The United States does not require this, but it is a good idea to get a microchip put on your pet. This enables you to identify your pet in case you get separated from your pet.
- Your pet needs to be caught up on its rabies shot . So go to your veterinarian, and make sure that gets taken care of.
- Dogs must also be tested for screwworm and tapeworm.. Okay, basically your dog needs a clean bill of health from your veterinarian.
I would love to know your thoughts any of this. Please let me know.
