PLEASE NOTE
NEW PHONE NUMBER
951.202.2208

Due to our recent move, our 800 number is no longer available. We will now be using our cell phone exclusively for all calls. Please change our number to 951.202.2208. I apologize for this inconvenience. AT&T does not support 800 numbers and has told me that most people use cell phones so I'm forced to move ahead with the times.

This says it all. I am thankful, grateful and blessed to have all of you in my life. You enhance the good times and sweeten the not so good times with your presence. I know all of us are looking forward to Thanksgiving this year and gathering round the table with relatives and friends. Personally, I can't wait!

Cruise Line Updates...

Cruises have begun with very positive results. Passengers are having a wonderful time. Capacity on all ships is currently reduced and everyone seems to be enjoying this feature. Crew members are thrilled that guests are back onboard and cannot wait to welcome you as well.

The cruise industry is seeing a huge demand from people ready to hit the high seas. I've been very busy booking cabins for travel in 2022 and beyond. Cruises are filling up very quickly, especially accessible staterooms. I recommend securing a cabin now and reserving with a refundable deposit.

Please call me to redeem any remaining Future Cruise Credits (FCC's) so they don't go to waste. Covid Protocols are in a constant state of flux so call me with your questions and I'll try to help you navigate the ever changing rules.
New Trips for 2023 & Beyond...

Once most travel has resumed and we are welcomed back to Europe, we will begin working on other trips including a land trip to Ireland in 2023.
Remember, you don't have to wait for a group to travel. We are happy to plan a trip just for you!
Keep reading our monthly newsletters to know when new groups are announced.

Debra & Steve's TRAVEL Update...

Steve and I redeemed our Celebrity Future Cruise Credit on a lovely California Coastal Cruise on Celebrity Millennium in October. It was also my first airline flight since early 2020. Happy to report that everything went well and I felt very safe on the plane and cruise ship. We were tested two days prior to boarding and everyone sailing was fully vaccinated. Once onboard we did not have to wear masks although the crew was masked at all times. There were only 700 passengers out of a possible 2200 so crowds and lines were non existent. There was a buffet but the food was served to you behind glass partitions. We enjoyed fantastic entertainment and outstanding service. We got off the ship in San Francisco and had some yummy clam chowder in a sourdough bowl. You had to show your vaccination card to enter all restaurants, shops, etc. Masks were required everywhere except while eating.
We truly had a great time and some much needed rest and relaxation after our move.
Vaccine for COVID-19 in 2021 is closer to reality. COVID-19 Vaccine. vaccine against coronavirus disease 2019 will be available on 2021. 2021-new year with corona virus vaccine concept.
Have You Received Your
Vaccine Yet???

Time To Get Your Booster Shot!

While we know that not everyone will get vaccinated, we believe very strongly that this is the right thing to do. We need to come together so that all of us feel safe. I will require my group participants to be vaccinated for my safety and theirs as well as the safety of other travelers.

It is more important now than ever to get vaccinated and protect against the Delta Variant. Being vaccinated is not a political statement, it is common sense.

PLEASE NOTE THAT YOU WILL NEED THE VACCINE FOR MOST TRAVEL.

Due to the surge in people wanting to travel, my reading has been slightly curtailed. Wish there were more hours in the day!
Some of these are easy reading (Chick Lit) but some are fairly intense. Enjoyed every almost all of these books. Reading is a great escape to another time and place which I think we can all benefit from.
New House UPDATE:

After three months of power decorating and being busy with various workers, I am ready to host Thanksgiving. I'm one of those people who really enjoys the process and I'm happy to report that everything turned out really well. Very pleased with all my choices! Just waiting for a few extra cabinets to be installed and getting a patio and patio cover for the backyard. This will probably need to wait till after the new year. Both of my sisters have already visited and I'm looking forward to having my son, daughter-in-law and three grandsons come this week.

We love when you participate in our groups but please remember to call us when you want to plan a vacation for the two of you or with a group of friends or family members. We can most likely plan any type of vacation you want and we will be sure to address all your accessibility requirements and needs. We so enjoy doing the research for you and look forward to planning that next trip just for you!
