  1. Acropolise at Night

    Athens, Greece: Birthplace of Democracy

    $0.00

    On a first visit to Athens, one will be surprised to find ancient relics intermixed with new construction of a cafe, hotel or boutique!  I was amazed to enjoy an early morning cappuccino alongside an ancient Roman statue! To build a city among ancient ruins reminds me of just one other city – Jerusalem.  I am amazed that city officials can keep tourists from pilferage these ancient ruins!

    This coming weekend, March 4th and 5th, with a kick-off evening networking event on Friday, March 6th, New York City will be host to the 3rd Annual Women's Travel Fest (sponsored by Expedia).

I personally attended both last year in San Francisco and the inaugural year in New York, and over 350 women of ALL ages attended, and some grandmothers came with their granddaughters!

    Two for the Price of One: Charleston/Daniel Island South Carolina

    $0.00

    A wonderful place to visit any time of year is Charleston, South Carolina. History, architecture, great food, water elements and charm all come to mind when describing this area. Recently, I was made aware of a 4,000 acre island within the Charleston area that was formerly owned by the Guggenheim Foundation. The first residential property did not make an appearance here until 1996. Since then it has become a planned community with 8 parks, 25 miles of trails, 23 miles of rivers, golf courses, tennis clubs, shops and restaurants. Bingo, now you get two great areas for the price of one!

Being so busy can put people on a germ-filled path, especially as they make their way to and from their destinations. The good news is that there are things baby boomers can do help avoid those nasty germs and keep healthy.

    Volunteer for an Adventure!

    $0.00

    If you want to experience a life-changing adventure, I highly recommend you combine travel with volunteerism! It’s one of the best things I’ve ever done! I’ve traveled to many beautiful, historic, and tourist friendly places, but volunteering gave me a deeper, richer, and more rewarding experience. It’s a great way to be completely immersed in a new culture, visit places you’ve never have been before, give yourself a new perspective on your life back at home, and have the added feel-good bonus of feeding your soul while helping those in need.

    You are in a new location trying to get the most out of your limited time to explore the area.  Although everyone wants to go explore 1 person has extreme food allergies, and another travel companion cannot walk far.  This means you have to miss out in seeing the Archaeological sites, eating authentic food, and seeing more than the touristy places on a right?

    The children are grown and are now parents of their own children. Yes, grandparenting is a joy! But long distances, and complex work and study schedules, often hinder family get-togethers and staying in close contact. Unless we are lucky enough to see the grandchildren on a weekly basis, each reunion is almost like meeting them for the first time.

    Dive Right In: Cobalt Coast Resort & Suites - Grand Cayman Islands

    $0.00

    You can thank the wind and Christopher Columbus for discovering the Cayman Islands. His ship blew off course on his final voyage to the New World and he landed on two islands filled with turtles, which he named “Las Tortugas.” The Caymans are a British Overseas Territory located south of Cuba and Northwest of Jamaica. They are known for their diving, so I decided to fill you in on a Dive Resort that, for this area, is a value. The Islands are a financial center, so this is not a bargain destination, but the Cobalt Coast Resort and Suites won’t break the bank.
