  • River Cruises: What’s It All About?

    I am often asked why so many people are drawn to river cruises, and for me, it’s an easy answer.  It is hands-down the best way to explore the history and culture of some of the most historic rivers in the world and the cities located along them.  River cruises offer you access to places and experiences that ocean cruises, and even some land tours, can’t.  Add the convenience of unpacking only once, the amenities of a fine hotel, top-notch excursions, and excellent food -- and you’re in for a vacation you’ll long remember.

  • Please Help Me Out With Crowd Control!

    Have you ever felt exhausted, and intimidated by being in a crowd?  Many people with mobility, medical or emotional challenges are very overwhelmed by being in tight, or compact places.  If you add in a walker, scooter, cane, or wheel chair the anxiety goes even higher.  People who have ADHD, early Dementia, and other “invisible” conditions are also effected.  This is sometimes part of traveling, whether it’s in an airplane, bus, or amusement park.
