August 2012 NEWSLETTER
Fall is around the corner. What does that mean to you?
For me it's a new start. The beginning of a new school year for my children and many new educational opportunities for myself.
Fall is the time we "Travel Agents" get to travel.  
Otherwise known as going on FAMS!
These are basically familiarization trips to different areas.
We participate in hotel and ship inspections, training classes and
many different enriching opportunities.  
It does sound like fun and by all means it is! but there is also a lot of work involved.
I prefer to have first hand experience.  Remember not everything on the Internet is as it seems or is what they want you to believe.  
It is all worth it and I am looking forward to the next few months. It prepares us to be able to find your exact dream vacation with no surprises and to know the ins and outs of certain resorts and destinations! I know it is not possible to see it all but be safe knowing that I will never recommend something that I do not stand behind!
and that is a GREAT reason to have a travel agent in your corner!
Stay tuned....the next few months should be an adventure!

What Not to Pack!

Things you want to bring on a cruise....but Shouldn't!
By Dan Askin
After the hair dryer-banning debacle of 2010, you knew no cruise line would be so naive as to attempt that again — the specter of thousands of frizzy-haired women descending on humid Caribbean ports is just too scary. But enormous hair dryers aren’t the only contraband that cruisers wanting to save money or look their best on formal night really, really want to pack. When it comes to breaking cruise-line rules or breaking your back with overstuffed suitcases, we’re here to remind you: don’t.

This is a must own for any fan of Major League Baseball.
Now this is great! ever though of visiting the major ballpark? or maybe you have already!

This piece features 30 cylinders of game used dirt, one from each ballpark in the Majors, and gives fans an opportunity to own a piece of every Major League ballpark in one gorgeous piece.
This features a map of the united states, and highlights the location of each park, along with a small pinhole image of each.

An MLB Authenticated hologram is included on each capsule of dirt, and a Steiner Sports Certificate of Authenticity is included with the piece.

Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party…..
it’s getting CLOSER!
(really it is)

Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is my absolute favorite event at Disney! and YES, Of Course I already have my tickets! Do you?
These parties restrict park attendance, so you will usually find that the attraction wait times are significantly less; however, the rides take the backseat, as the entertainment offerings are unique to only those attending the party.  The Disney characters strut their Halloween Costumes, the HalloWishes firework spectacular features perimeter fireworks and your favorite Disney Villain entertainment is FANTASTIC! The Boo To You Halloween Parade is by far my favorite parade (wait for the second showing, there’s definitely less of a crowd!)  
We saw the headless horseman right before the parade started!
It is tons of fun!
Oh yeah and GREAT for the kids too!

Just a thought......

Many people have stressful jobs and are very busy. When they get to their vacation destination, rest and relaxation should be their number one priority, not making decisions as to how long to stay, where to stay, where to eat, how to get from one place to the next, etc. Once you have selected a cruise itinerary and cruise ship, these important vacation decisions are complete. You can board the ship and relax. What more can you ask for?
