I have some ideas for the business that I want to try. But with us leaving tomorrow and not being sure how much I am going to be online, I am going to be starting working on these ideas starting next week.

Okay today we are going to be looking at changes in the cruising industry. We have talked about this before on this blog, but river cruising is becoming more and more popular. Viking is always growing, adding more ships and more itineraries. This is a great way to immerse yourself in the culture of a certain area. There are several other companies who are doing river cruises, but Viking is the leader without question.

You used to not be able to find a cruise to Asia. But this too is really growing in popularity. And you are going to find a mix of inexpensive and higher class cruiselines That will take you to this part of the world.

Australia is another destination that is really growing on travelers.. I know a couple of people who have gone or are going to Australia soon… I would love to hear your thoughts on any of these things.

Budgeting for a trip to Southeast Asia?

It’s Monday, and I’m kind of fighting the feeling of the weekend wasn’t long enough. It may be because I’m still adjusting to working on Saturday. Or maybe it has more to do with my sister and I planning a fun weekend this coming weekend. Whatever it is, I’m getting over it now.

I’m actually talking to someone about maybe going to Thailand at some point.. I’m kind of surprised that this article is saying that a trip to this area is relatively inexpensive. But then again, I know that some things in China can be very inexpensive.

As with all trips, what you want to do on this trip is going to determine how much you are going to spend. Are you going to just lie on the beautiful beaches all day day? Do you want to go and party all night? What kind of accommodations do you want? Are you going to be happy sleeping anywhere, or are you dreaming of a luxurious suite? Are you more into fine restaurants or streetvendors?

These questions are something you need to consider any time you go on a trip… I’d love to help you walk through these questions and more as you prepare for your next trip. Please let me know if I can help you plan an adventure.
