Autumn is upon us and I am loving the cooler weather and, yes, even the rain (as long as I'm inside!).
Halloween will be here very soon and I can't wait to see all the little ghosts and goblins at my front door.
I'm off to San Francisco for the final Abilities Expo of 2018 in San Mateo. Be sure and come visit if you are in the area. We love seeing our clients and meeting new people.

Great Travel Tips for the Older Traveler

The population may be aging but the desire to travel among seniors is still very strong and multi-generational travel is definitely on the upswing. Still, I get calls all the time from people who are not sure how to travel as they get on in years or from family members who are concerned about taking elderly family members on vacations. Remember, we are here to help!

The following article provides some good, common sense advice to follow as well as some invaluable travel tips for seniors.
Always remember, SAFETY FIRST!

Just Returned...New York City & New England
autumn-trees-fence2.jpg
We recently returned from an incredible three days in New York City followed by a seven night Fall Foliage Cruise on NCL Escape.
New York was a real treat! We ate NY Pizza at the famous John's of Times Square and indulged on cheesecake at Junior's Deli where the many varieties of cheesecake are infamous around the globe.
We enjoyed accessible tours to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island and had an emotional visit to the 911 Memorial and Museum. We also visited the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Guggenheim Museum and the Museum of Natural History in addition to a leisurely stroll through Central Park where I enjoyed a NY hot dog from one of the many stands.
It was the ultimate NY Experience!

The New England Cruise saw several past travelers onboard but, one of the highlights for me, was welcoming so many new travelers to our group. In typical fashion, everyone just clicked and got along so well. I observed several friendships being formed and know they will continue long past our trip. I hope to see everyone again on another Easy Access Travel Adventure.

We dined in four of the specialty restaurants but it seems that Teppanyaki, which we enjoyed on our final night, was the group's favorite. It is a very entertaining and delicious dinner. There were outstanding shows and performers around the ship and a great time was had by all!
