Getting To Our Cruise
There are some great perks to being a travel agent. One of those perks is a free graduation cruise with Princess if you complete their training to Commodore - which I Have. I’ve been saving this cruise for a European destination but sometimes it’s not the destination that’s important, it’s the timing. My hubby and I have had a lot of difficulties already this year and we...

My New Shirt Designs
Sometimes you need a creative outlet. A physical place to put the things rattling around in your head. While I am not good at the mechanics of graphic artistry my husband is, and fortunately for me he is willing to be my conduit from brain to imagery. So often our creativity stays hidden in a drawer or flash drive and nothing comes of it - at least that is the case for me. Not this time, this...
Recently I attended the Classic Vacation’s Product Showcase. Every time I attend an event that is hosted by Classic I become more comfortable in the fact that they will take amazing care of my clients! Classic’s attention to detail and their commitment to quality shows through in everything they do. From the reservation agents I talk to - to the client documents they send out and...
My husband and I are traveling together for the first time in a long time. I forgot how different our travel styles are. My hubby likes to get to the airport early so he has no stress getting to his gate and I arrive at the last possible moment and have to run to my gate. Granted, his plan ahead and leave plenty of time for error mode of travel is smarter, less stressful and exactly what I advise...

This is why 10 years ago Gutsy Women Travel was founded by April Merenda, to give women the chance to have fantastic travel experiences in the company...

My first photo adventure was to Egypt with a photography tour. I was so excited! I made list after list of things that I was going to need for my trip. Looking back, I must admit my list was pretty long. I was going on my own so I would be toting around all of my own gear. For me the perfect backpack was crucial! It needed to hold all of my photo gear and some extras supplies for my days of...

I have several years of catching up to do. I have...
