Traveling is the passion of some people while some people have to travel forcefully. Yes, traveling within our own country and other countries has become easier than before. It is about travelling thoughtfully, and with a purpose. Adventure travellers want to learn more about the people who live in amazing places around the world, and they want to see what they can give back to help these people protect their culture and environment. The Maldives is known for its romantic sunsets and overwater Bungalows. This is the reason it is one of the best honeymoon destinations in the world. However, you may not want to wait for your honeymoon to visit this beautiful destination. You can also go there with your family as many of the Islands are designed for families. Thank you Frances Metcalfe, for sharing your views and experiences of travelling. I also enjoy travelling and prefer a well planned tour. Things are definitely easier, as compared to earlier times, with regard to travelling.

Spas and resorts around the world are figuring out that more seniors are planning solo senior trips. To make their location stand out against the rest, places like the Westin St. John Resort and the Fairmont Miramar Hotel in Santa Monica are offering singles packages. It was an eye opener for us and the kids to experience new weather, food cuisines and the people behaviors. My husband and I are relatively experienced travellers, but we are first time parents and had never travelled with a child before. We saw it as an exciting adventure, and planned a reasonably luxurious holiday, beginning in Saigon and then flying on to the beach resorts of Nha Trang and Hoi An. An indirect flight can take longer to arrive at the intended destination, but a flight with a stopover often leads to the most cost-effective travel option. Also, the day you fly can have a noticeable impact on the price. In most cases, a midweek flight will save a lot of money for a family vacation compared to flying at the weekend. Simply making a few minor changes like this can save literally hundreds of dollars.

Made three business trips to California. The second included a time out with my business partner and colleagues to visit Disneyland. At first wasn’t too enthused learning of the event traveling from Florida and thought to be like Disney World. It is so true about the attention to detail, magic. There was a live performance of the Blues Brothers in the courtyard that was amazingly like right out of the travel insurance movie. Harpo Marx with his horn and lovable nature got the best of me, a good sport among the crowd. Tickles my recall. We were fortunate to find Oriental Cuisine that was tasty and not too expensive. The trip was during off season. California is a beautiful state with it’s different terrains and foliage. It is a place to see, more than once in a lifetime. Thanks for taking me down memory lane.
