Summer Outings & Fall Vacations

Havent planned a summer vacation yet? No worries, we have lots of suggestions or FALL tours to offer.

Travel agents today really have a much different role than in the past. More than just booking trips from point A to point B or fulfilling orders, a travel agent today has to be more of an advisor—a partner—in the planning process. If you’re letting your clients just tell you what they want and not providing them further insights with your expertise, you’re missing out on a critical opportunity to provide them with value they can’t get anywhere else. The web might provide a wealth of resources to travelers, but it also hosts endless sources of overwhelming, confusing and even unreliable information. So go beyond and guide your clients to incredible vacations with personal touches only you can provide.

As a Travel Agent I have found that so much information can be shared to make your travel adventures easier. You have to talk with folks, read curent events and check on ALL the travel info on Social Media to be aware of Travel trends. So here are some stories to follow and our Hints & Tips.

Humanitarian Travel

You may not know that I traveled to Uzhgerod, Ukraine in June of 2022, with this awesome team, visiting orphans and hospitals to deliver medicine,food & toiletries. After a year, the Ukranian People Support effort continues. We are sending funding through our european humanitarian groups and Ukraine Rotary club of Uzhgerrod. You can help by donating at: SPOTFUND LINK

I facilitate the volunteers on saturdays serving at the Breakfast Kitchen in downtown Stuttgart, which Sister Margaret runs. She also assists in raising funds for the Ukranian orphans.

The Rotary club of Uzhgerod-Skala

has been able to purchase ambulances and generators. And recently we have sent donations to assist those form the floods in Ukraine.

Tourism Colleagues

Working overseas in the german-american community, I had the fortune to meet many city & state individuals and made sure to stay in touch.

Returning to Stuttgart now, with my tour groups, it is wonderful to get up to date city information, the new places to visit, the latest restaurants and updated Hotels. Tourism is ever changing, yet thanks to Heike at the Stuttgart Region tourism office, I'm able to reconnect and update any of my tours. She travels around Europe with the Stuttgart team to share the Regional information. #ThankYou

It's easy to lose things before or during your trip, so digital trackers make it easy to monitor your most important items. You don't need to track everything, like a pair of socks or your pants. But they can use your phone, laptop, tablet, wallet, luggage, backpack, and other things.

***** You can get a Tile Essentials 4-pack to use Bluetooth to track your keys, wallet, and many other items. Or you can try Apple AirTags for your iPhone, laptop, or iPad, or even your luggage. Read more at:

'Yummy' fruit salad with a difference. 𝐑𝐨𝐭𝐞 𝐆𝐫ü𝐭𝐳𝐞... 𝐚 𝐬𝐞𝐚𝐬𝐨𝐧𝐚𝐥 𝐝𝐞𝐬𝐬𝐞𝐫𝐭, light summer supper, snack, or even a breakfast - although as Frühstück one without the optional alcohol would be best. Rote Grütze is especially popular in northern Germany, and easy to make, traditionally with fresh berries but you can use frozen so enjoy the summery flavours any time of year. And here is a recipe:

For 𝐑𝐨𝐭𝐞 𝐆𝐫ü𝐭𝐳𝐞 𝐫𝐞𝐝 𝐛𝐞𝐫𝐫𝐢𝐞𝐬, 𝐫𝐚𝐬𝐩𝐛𝐞𝐫𝐫𝐢𝐞𝐬, 𝐜𝐮𝐫𝐫𝐚𝐧𝐭𝐬, 𝐬𝐭𝐫𝐚𝐰𝐛𝐞𝐫𝐫𝐢𝐞𝐬 𝐞𝐭𝐜. If staying with red is not a priority mix in other berries.

450 gram/1 lb berries

240ml/1 cup red fruit juice

50 gram/cup sugar

5 ml/1 teaspoon vanilla extract

30 gram/3 tablespoons corn starch

45 ml/3 tablespoons water as necessary

Prepare the fruit - wash, remove stems and stones. Cut larger fruit, like strawberries and cherries, into smaller pieces.

The sauce is thickened fruit juice. I use red fruit juice, such as red grape or cherry juice.

Once the fruit is prepared, use some of the juice to make a thin paste with the corn starch. Set aside and warm the remaining juice, sugar and vanilla extract, and bring to a simmer.

Then stir the corn starch paste again and add with the fruit that takes a little longer to cook. Strawberries and cherries, and blackberries if you are using them.

After cooking for a couple of minutes, stirring so the mixture thickens evenly, add the rest of the fruit and cook for an additional two to three minutes.

Until the fruit is softened but not broken.

It can be served warm, but is delicious cold, traditionally with vanilla sauce. Or with cream or ice cream. Cover with cling film, saran wrap, to prevent a skin forming as it cools, and it can be kept in the fridge for a couple of days.
