This is my good friend and fellow travel agent Alice and her group of traveling buddies. Alice is the one kind of leaning on the left. She's a hoot to work with. We tell each other that if we ever need to go into a nursing home that our kids should put us on a cruise ship instead and we can float around the seas and they can visit us in port or on the ship. Think about it, you have a doctor and nurse on board, you have all of your meals and entertainment and it's probably cheaper then going into a nursing home.
Anyway, my work had a travel show the other night. We had a pretty good turnout and it was alot of fun. I loved talking to some of our clients and finding out how they liked their trips they took. The most interesting couple I talked to had just come back from Africa on a African Safari. I've known this couple for awhile and they have traveled the world. They told me about how they came upon a lion kill while they were in Africa and that they stayed at a lodge called The Ark, where you can watch the animals come to visit the salt lick. It is a lodge that is shaped to resemble the Ark and it has balconies and decks for great views. It just sounded so interesting to me and fascinating. I also asked them where their favorite place was out of all of the places they have been in this world and they told me that New Zealand was the most beautiful of all they had seen. In fact the husband told me that at every turn they went in New Zealand that there was another beautiful sight to see. I knew Australia was at the top of my list to see but now New Zealand is up there also. This is the best part of my job talking to people about their trips and hearing how excited they are when they see new places in this world. The worst part is dealing with the airlines. Have a great Monday!
