As I settle in on my flight this morning from JFK to Tampa for a short trip, I see that I have no screen in the seat back in front of me. What am I going to do for 2 hours? I could sleep...but I know that’s not really going to happen. Of course I didn’t bring the right headphones with me...Didn’t think that I would need them. So I’m sitting here thinking. Thinking about what fun lies ahead of me this weekend, thinking about my wonderful honeymoon couple that is leaving for safari tonight. Thinking about the wonderful clients that have traveled with my assistance this year and the destination wedding and honeymoon couples who will be celebrating their first married holidays.
It’s been a great year for me. Lots of learning... places that I’ve visited so that I can better serve my clients in the future, and planning for trips coming up. As a travel consultant, I feel that it is my responsibility to personally visit as many places as I can. Luckily for me, I have incredible travel agent friends who also travel and whose opinions I trust to fill in any blanks for me.
2019 has also seen the adoption of my baby elephant, Maktao. My beautiful Labrador, Lucy, turned lucky 13 and my beautiful daughter turned 30. Hmmm when did I get old enough to have a 30 year old....never mind...onto other musings.
2019 brought me back to the Northwest where I enjoyed incredible scenery, water, and a much more peaceful way of life. Hummingbirds were the favorite.....and a few breaching whales off the starboard side of the ship were a surprise addition.
An extra trip to Jamaica reminded me what I love about the country and its people...and tasted my first jerk vegetables...and they were fantastic!
The Big Fake Wedding was my final wedding show of the year. It was a wonderful experience with so many interesting ideas to help me inspire upcoming brides and grooms into the future.
So...as I grab an extra bag of Cheez Its ( no, I shouldn’t, but they are so good and boredom will set in soon) and a cold drink, I will close this by wishing everyone a Happy Holidays and a Happy and Healthy New Year. I hope you travel well and often and that you travel with my assistance.
For those who aren’t planning travel yet...think about the places you’d like to visit and learn about them here. You never know when wanderlust will strike.
