August is a busy month. Summer vacations are coming to an end, the school year starts and it's the beginning of football season.

Fall is one of our favorite seasons of the year to travel. The weather is moderate, the tourist crowds are smaller and the costs of travel are lower.

Winter offers unique opportunities; splendid festivals around the world, cold weather activities, shopping for bargains at European Christmas markets, treating yourself to a wellness spa experience or simply going somewhere to make angels in the snow.

When it's winter here, it's spring and summer in the southern hemisphere - a good time to explore a different region of the world. Imagine a gala dinner and dancing the waltz at a festive ball on New Years eve in Vienna. Or, partying in New York City as the ball drops.

Explore New Scotland (Nova Scotia)
On a Tauck Canada Maritime Tour

Love the beach? Taking a beach stroll and picking up shells? Crave those mountain views? Enjoy a walk through the forest to catch a glimpse of a singing bird or a tiny mammal? Long for the cooling ocean breezes? Learning about history and visiting a museum is your thing? Are you a foodie who could devour lobster, mussels, oysters, cod and halibut every meal? What about maple syrup? Then New Scotland or also known as Nova Scotia is your trip. Every stop is a picture waiting to happen.

Tauck tours in July 2017 recently hosted its 1,131st escorted bus tour of that special province of Canada. Also, included were visits to New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island. Excursions that this company has facilitated since 1925. What's not to like in summer about this Atlantic Canadian Maritime country when Florida feels like a Swedish sauna with some warm rain melting your garden plants? Maybe N.S. is not the place to visit in the winter (40 degrees below!), but summer is heavenly.

The Cherry Family
Disney Cruise

This is to share our experience on our family Disney cruise. The bottom line is that it exceeded all our expectations!

For a few years we had thought about taking all of the grandkids (with their parents) on a Disney cruise  and with the grandchildren currently ranging in age from 3 to 9, this seemed like a good time.  So our 5 grandchildren and 7 adults boarded the Disney Dream for our four night cruise.

The Wiegman Family
Cruise Alaska

We have had a wonderful cruise! We loved the rooms with the balconies on the back of the boat. What a great suggestion!

We were able to take the railroad to Fraser. This is something I've wanted to do but it was fogged out when we went last. The kids were blown away with all the things to do on the Royal Caribbean as well as the beauty of Alaska.

Thanks for all your help in arranging everything! We still have Victoria tomorrow and then Seattle this weekend so our trip isn't over - but we are sad to see our cruise coming to an end. Thanks again for all your advice!

Connie and John Wiegman and family.

Colonized by the Portuguese in the 16th century, Macau was the first European settlement in the Far East. Pursuant to an agreement signed by China and Portugal on 13 April 1987, Macau became the Macau Special Administrative Region of the People's Republic of China on 20 December 1999. In this agreement, China promised that, under its "one country, two systems" formula, China's political and economic system would not be imposed on Macau, and that Macau would enjoy a "high degree of autonomy" in all matters except foreign affairs and defense for the subsequent 50 years.

The SeaDream team both shore side and aboard twin mega yachts  enjoy knowing they are providing unprecedented levels of luxury and service.

All guest rooms have an ocean view. The SeaDream experience is all-inclusive. Whether dining alfresco or in the salon, relaxing by the pool or enjoying a Spa treatment, playing a round of golf in the 30 course Golf Simulator or taking a mountain bike shore side and exploring the port of call, guests know that they are experiencing the most personalized and pampered holiday at sea.

SeaDream's itineraries are designed to call upon the most intimate ports, harbors and yachting playgrounds that larger ships cannot reach. From May through October, both yachts sail the Mediterranean Sea. From November through April they visit the turquoise waters of the Caribbean.
