CRUISE AROUND THE HAWAIIAN ISLANDS
WHEN OPPORTUNITY KNOCKS– CONSIDER BEING SPONTANEOUS!
Some of the best traveling I’ve done was at the last minute. This cruise opportunity is available year round, but I’ll be sailing on this amazing cruise around the Hawaiian Islands There are still guaranteed balcony cabins available for $1,599 per person–– Come join me!
Only Norwegian lets you visit four islands in seven days, which means you’re on an island each and every day! It is no wonder that they were voted Porthole Magazine’s “Best Hawaii Itinerary” for 10 years in a row! And since NCL is the only cruise line that homeports in Hawaii, offering convenient year-round Saturday departures, you can vacation on your schedule. I’ll be sailing around Hawaii Oct 31, 2015. Why don’t you come along and join me.
Be spontaneous–Go for it!
Bon Voyage, your Educated Gypsy Friend,
Hello excited travelers! Many people expect that nothing could possibly happen to them as they travel. But, some of us have learned that life is unpredictable. My job is to make you aware of the things you might not think of when you travel.
Because I have seen so many unexpected things happen during my travels, I have become very “risk averse”. I personally have seen a person have to be air lifted off a ship 1/2 way to Cabo and be returned to San Diego by medical evacuation helicopter. My 1st thought when I heard what was happening was ” I hope that person has travel insurance to cover this.” You have to have the right insurance coverage to pay for that. I’ve seen a person step off a tour bus and break her ankle. She had to pay for emergency transport and hospital expense and re-schedule her flights to another country to get back home to see her own doctors and pay again. I know a man who had a stroke while on a cruise and had to stay a week in a foreign hospital in Turkey and then be flown home on a special medical transport (both very expensive.) I’ve seen a young lady break her leg when she slipped at Dunn’s River Falls in Jamaica. She had to charge $1,500 unexpectedly on her charge card to get medical treatment at the hospital. A friend slipped on the marble floors at a resort in Cancun and broke her hip. I could keep going on and on.
I am not trying to alarm you, I merely want you to be protected from unexpected problems. I always insure myself when I travel and always advise my clients to do the same. If a plan you have at home currently will cover all the things listed, then you don’t need anything extra. You can even get coverage up to a day before you travel but the quote is about much more than cancelling the cruise or tour. When I send you a quote, please read the coverage very carefully. The choice is up to you. If “Las Vegas” is your style, then so be it. Just know before you go. I’ve done my part by informing you. “I wish I had” doesn’t pay for anything.
Bon Voyage, Susan
What do you think your most valuable asset is? Your money? Your car? Computer? Jewelry? Not by a long shot! Most people automatically think of possessions when that question comes up. But the true reality is– it’s your time!
Your time is the one thing of value that you absolutely cannot get more of. You can earn more money, get another car, computer, jewelry, etc—but there is no additional time you can acquire in your life. Therefore it is your most valuable asset.
You can, however, use it more wisely. If you are going to allocate your precious time to any endeavor–make it quality and don’t waste it. We all have our gifts. Do what you’re good at and let some other qualified person help with the rest.
My gift happens to be planning travel. I started many years ago and I’ve gotten consistently wiser and better at it as time went by. I know how to interpret a travel offering and separate the reality from the hype. I know how to judge the lay out of a resort and pretty much tell you how your experience will be. I can look at the itinerary of a cruise or tour and and explain what’s going to happen. In other words, I turned my time of researching all these years into a talent for getting you
that picture in your mind. I actually turn travel dreams into reality in a fraction of the time it would take you to do it on your own. Unless you’ve got years of experience, which includes personal trials and errors, you still can’t be sure of what you’re researching. Do you really want to gamble your MONEY and YOUR PRECIOUS TIME on a less than quality experience?
You get personal attention and one-on-one consultation with me. I honestly care what kind of experience you have, and I endeavor to point you in the right direction. I plan every adventure for you just as if I’m the one going. You can’t get that online or from any call center I know of.
On that note, one of my favorite comments is “DON’T WAIT – DO IT NOW!
If you want to save your precious time and and get that quality experience you’re dreaming of, contact me for a consultation. It will be all about you.

Mark and I had a great time Friday night at Mt. Carmel Baptist Church in Demorest, Ga. We could really feel the warmth and friendship between the people there. A Sunday School class there wants to take a bucket list trip to Alaska next June 2015.
I’m going to help them get this group together, and YOU’RE INVITED TO GO WITH US! Alaska is in the top 5 places most people want to visit, and rightly so. It is gorgeous, massive in scope, and so much to see and do.
We all know that TSA lines can have very unpleasant surprises such as confiscating belongings, loosing luggage, and pat-down searches. They can even be as unpleasant as changing carry-on weight limits without a warning. That is why it is important to check the TSA rules and standards before you embark on your travels.

Your Educated Gypsy Travel Planner,
This a question posed by Jamie Saxe in an article on TravelResearchOnline-Smith. It caught my attention mainly because I’ve been promoting a Special 70th Anniversary WW II D-DAY Memorial Cruise sailing June 2014 and this question seemed timely. My Father was stationed in France during WW II. As a 4 year old child I remember him coming home on the train to Hammond, La. where we waited for him. When he got off the train he was singing “Oh, what a beautiful morning, oh what a beautiful day. I’ve got a beautiful feeling, everything’s going my way!” Funny the little things one remembers when a child. Later, after Mom and Dad had both passed on, I found a postcard of The Arc de Triomphe from Paris that he had written to my Mom. It was written in Oct 1941 when I was 3 months old. The surprising thing was the date it was stamped as mailed by postal service—Nov 1944. Who knows where that card had been taken to before the Army sent it on home. When I was in Paris for a River Cruise on the Seine, I had my picture taken in front of the Arc. If those stones could only talk.
