    The Group Advantage

  • Save money by traveling with a group
  • Comfort ~ being with others of the same interest and background
  • Many have traveled with us before
  • The “details” have been taken care of - for you

    • Why No Fees

    As a professional Travel Advisor .... I DO NOT CHARGE A FEE, but here is what Travel Advisor fees are typically for:

    Fees are not for bookings, they are for YOU. Fees are based on your Travel Advisor’s advice, expertise, recommendations, and valuable connections.

    Commissions, on the other hand, are for what the Travel Advisor does for the supplier.

    We can help you select the cruise that’s right for you .... such as: Active ~ Art & Handicraft ~ Culture & History ~ Culinary ~ Family ~ Photography ~ Romance ~ Slow, Peaceful, Relaxing, Journey ~ Wellness & Fitness.

    Our services are designed to save you time and money and keep you from getting ripped off.

    As a professional Travel Advisor, I DO NOT CHARGE A FEE!

    "WHY WE TRAVEL" by Pico Lyer ("SALON MAGAZINE" March 18, 2000)

    "[Travel] whirls you around, turns you upside down and stands everything you took for granted on its head.

    "We travel, initially, to lose ourselves; and we travel, next, to find ourselves. We travel to open our hearts and eyes and learn more about the world.   We travel to bring what little we can, in our ignorance and knowledge, to those parts of the globe whose riches are differently dispersed.   And we travel, in essence to become young again - to slow time down and get taken in, and fall in love once more.

    "There is wisdom in turning as often as possible from the familiar to the unfamiliar; it keeps the mind nimble; it kills prejudice, and it fosters humor.

    "Romantic poets inaugurated an era of travel because they were great apostles of open eyes.   Buddhist monks are often vagabonds, in part because they believe in mindfulness.

    "And so if travel is like love, it is, in the end, mostly because it is a heightened state of awareness, in which we are mindful, receptive, undimmed by familiarity and ready to be transformed.

    "That is why the best trips, like the greatest loves, never really end."

    Thoughts To Think About

    . . . From Around The World . . .

    There are only two mistakes one can make along the road to truth; not going all the way, and not starting   ~   Buddha

    Education is when you read the fine print.  Experience is what you get when you don't   ~   Pete Seeger

    I told my suitcase that there will be no vacation this year. Now I'm dealing with emotional baggage.

    The most difficult thing to learn is something you think you already know   ~   Jiddhu Krishnamurti

    Our separation from each other is an optical illusion of consciousness    ~    Albert Einstein

    I don't paint what I see, but what I saw   ~   Edvard Munch

    Travel is the passport to peace ~ Dr. John Freedman

    Hold on while I overthink this . . . . . . . . . . . .

    Sometimes it takes me all day to get nothing done

    Is there ever a day - that mattresses are not on sale?

    Ban pre-shredded cheese, and make America grate again

    Never laugh at your spouse's choices.  You are one of them

    Dogs prepare you for babies ... Cats prepare you for teenagers

    It's not the dryer that makes clothes shrink ... it's the refrigerator

    Bread is a lot like the sun ~ It rises in the Yeast and sets in the waist

    My spouse says I have two faults.  I don't listen .... and .... something else

    I've always had an irrational fear of speed bumps, but I'm slowly getting over it

    Is the glass half empty, half full or just too large?  The important thing is it's refillable

    Why don't I have any tattoos? For the same reason you don't put a bumper sticker on a Ferrari

    Intelligence is like underwear.   It's important that you have it, but not necessary that you show it off

    I might wake up early and go running. I also might wake up and win the lottery. The odds are about the same

    I just got pulled over by the cops. He said: "I can smell alcohol." I told him that was because he wasn't respecting social distancing

    The fact that Kansas and Arkansas are pronounced differently - bothers me way more than it should

    I saw an ad for burial plots, and thought to myself: "that's the last thing I need."

    Relationships are like algebra. Have you ever looked at your X and wondered Y

    I named my dog "6 Miles," so I can tell people I walked "6 Miles" everyday

    Whatever you do, always give 100% ~ ~ ~ unless you're donating blood.

    I fell asleep reading old magazines, and woke up - with back issues

    I checked into the Hokey Pokey Clinic and I turned myself around

    If we had more IQ tests there would be a spike in morons, too

    I want to grow my own food .... but I can't find bacon seeds

    Teach your kids about taxes ... Eat 30% of their ice cream

    It's not the water on the outside of the boat that sinks it

    We wander for distraction, but we travel for fulfillment

    We do not see the world as it is ~ we see it as we are

    I've not been everywhere ... but it's on my list

    How wonderfully early it is - - - to see you

    I am the world - through which I walk

    Animals are empathy with fur
