    All Things EARTH... part 2

    Laurie , I have been to several all inclusive resorts . When I was working they were a favorite way to relax . Think Nachi Cocum but for a week .They have entertainment but the focus is on beach and just relaxing .The Dominican Republic is a popular spot .

    Margaret , My favorite picture is absolutely the lion family . I have seen a lot of other people's safari pictures but you seemed to see more animals .I wonder if the large companies scare off some animals .

    I hate jet lag but what helped me was melatonin .I was able to sleep and function somewhat that first day .

    It arrived and is slightly longer than I like but I figured one wash and it would be perfect . I also bought the necklace . I think I will get a lot of use out of this dress .

    Transatlantic Cruise?

    We also live in Bradenton and when we did a transatlantic we got a one way rental car from Sarasota airport so we could go down the night before . We dropped it at the airport and took a shuttle to a hotel . The one way rental was pretty inexpensive . We then flew into Tampa and had a car service drive us home .After a transatlantic flight the jet lag is pretty intense so no way did I want to drive from the airport .

    Laurie , When we went to Canada I researched all the ports on the internet . St. John's is pretty small .We walked around it and then took a trolley tour that was offered by the city .Halifax has a lot to see . We took a tour that went to the various sites . There is also a boardwalk right near the port that has restaurants and shops and I think there is a maritime museum .I researched that also on the town's web site .We really enjoyed that cruise and would definitely go again. I love the research part of travel .
  12. I have done the Majesty to Cuba twice . The first time we used Fer tours and had an excellent tour . The second time we used "Old Time Car " tours and had an even better experience on that tour we saw more of day to day Cuba. It takes a little while to get off the ship because of immigration and money exchange . I would suggest read up on Cuba so you can tell your guide what you are interested in.

    It is so interesting to know there is a company like this . When I was younger I went on several guided tours and while I saw a lot it was sometimes things I had no interest in .I love the research & planning of trips but sometimes for longer trips I would like someone else to give me some input .

    It is so hard to see our children go through hard times .My daughter is 42 and I still worry about her every day . It is so funny with dressiness on ships . Last year we went on two cruises to Cuba on the same ship . The first cruise more people dressed up and the second everyone was casual .You just never know .I tend to dress middle of the road .

    I was a Canada Cruise years ago . One of my favorite cruises and yes it was casual . We only booked one excursion .All the others we caught local tours in town .I love seafood chowder so I had that at every port .We were there in early September and the weather was perfect . I did wear jeans but I really did not need a jacket at all.
