    The Queen Mary 2 Journey - Luxury Personified: Part One

    $0.00

    REMEMBER WHEN?   LUXURY WAS A GIVEN, AND THE CUNARD SLOGAN WAS “GETTING THERE IS HALF THE FUN”? That was in the Golden Age of transatlantic crossings. When people really going to or from someplace had to resort to sea travel to go long distances.  With the advent of jet planes, carrying more passengers at greater speeds, ocean travel has become almost extinct. But, the QUEEN MARY 2 keeps it alive in all its luxury and splendor on its run from New York (“Brooklyn!”) to Southampton (and some other European destinations).  And I’m telling you, if you have the time, and the money, then treat yourselves to 7 days of luxury, elegance, grand living, and of being suspended in time and place. Getting there really was more than half the fun!!!

  9. No Passport Travel

    No Passport Travel

    $0.00

    Imagine a picture-perfect sunset, a cool island breeze, and the relaxing sound of waves crashing against the shore while you sip the juice out of a fresh coconut. The thought of a tropical vacation is most enticing when you just want to get away, or at any time if we’re being honest. It’s a fantasy many of us long for, but we often think that jetting off to an exotic location that can offer all of this and more requires too much effort due to them being international destinations. Of course international travel mandates a current passport, which means going through customs and an even longer visit with the TSA. This is even more distressing if you don’t have a passport or if your passport has expired and you need to renew it. At the airport, security is magnified and even the smallest details will be scrutinized. If this has completely turned you off to traveling with a passport, we’ve got good news. Fortunately, there are beautiful tropical vacations you can visit with just your driver’s license in hand.
