Have you heard the good news? Two days ago, on May 25th, President Biden signed the Alaska Tourism Restoration Act, legislation that sets the stage for large ships to cruise in Alaska this Summer. To board, all passengers over the age of 16 will be required to show proof that they have been vaccinated 14 days ahead of the cruise's start date. Starting August 1st, every passenger over age 12 will be required to be fully vaccinated to board.
So, vacation season is finally here! You have, hopefully, contacted your super-amazing Travel Professional to help you plan the perfect experience and shopped-for and packed all your new cute travel clothes….you’re ready? Maybe not! Have you made sure to leave your home in good shape so it stays clean, protected and even energy-efficient while you are gone? CLEAN:
Change the sheets – When you arrive home from your vacation, nothing beats collapsing into crisp, clean sheets…in your own bed. It’s worth the few extra minutes it takes before you leave.
Europe is opening to US travelers this Summer. I thought I'd share some common fears I hear from clients who haven't been there before. If I had a dollar for every time a client has asked me if people in Paris really hate Americans, or stated that they might be interested in seeing Europe, but they are afraid they won’t be able to get around since they only speak English, or are afraid of the Euro, or think too many people smoke, or worry that they won’t be able to find any food that they like, etc…I would be long retired in an oceanfront villa on Maui by now, sipping Mai Tais and perfecting my tan.
