Sandals Royal Bahamian 

I work hard educating myself about Sandals Resorts. One of the perks of my job is having the good fortune to visit the results as well. My hard work pays off when I am able to enjoy a resort for personal travel; today we arrived to Sandals Royal Bahamian.  So far, so good! I’d love for you to ask me about the resort!

Honeymooning in Mexican Paradise

I can’t believe I have not published this yet- I guess I’m a bit of a blog slacker…!

This article is from the Fall/Winter issue of Beautiful Bride; it features one of the most popular destinations for my honeymooners, destination weddings and family vacations- MEXICO!

Over the summer I had the good fortune of spending nearly two weeks in the Riviera Maya region (I know, tough job, but someone has to do it!). I truly love this region of Mexico.  The resorts are top notch, the food is to die for and the people are so friendly.

I am based in the ATL, so many of my clients are based in the Southeast.  Traveling to Mexico is not only a short and easy flight, it is also an affordable getaway. This article features some of my favorite resorts and activities in this region of Mexico.

Thank you for reading and HAPPY TRAVELS!

Reason #1 to Use a Travel Agent Save Time & Stress!

Reason #1 to use a Travel Agent Save Time & Stress!

Sometimes I get questions from people I meet expressing curiosity about why people use a travel agent. Well, I have a perfect example of something that just happened to explain one reason. 

I have honeymoon clients getting married on Friday. Yesterday we received notification that the flights changed dramatically- as in multiple connections and  they would arrive to their destination a day late!

Since we are so close to their departure date the number of available flights from their departure city to their destination were slim to none. I was on the phone literally the entire day with the airline, the tour operator, and my resort contacts to figure out the best options to get them to their destination as planned. 

Imagine if your wedding or your big departure date was only days away and you had to spend one whole day stressing about a change in your itinerary and how to resolve it. This is where my role as Travel Agent comes into play. I use my experience and contacts within the industry to find the best solution for my clients so they don’t waste time, don’t have additional stress and can enjoy their celebration.
Keep Calm and use a Travel Agent! #callatravelagent

The Caribbean is Calling

In just a few short days I embark upon a two week journey to the Caribbean… I know tough work, but somebody has to do it!

My travel starts in the outer islands of the Bahamas at Sandals Emerald Bay in the Exumas. 

From there I’ll travel to Turks and Caicos where I’ll spend a few days at my friend’s seaside villa. 

Finally, I’ll spend just over a week in Mexico. For part of my trip I’ll join a group of travel agents where we will tour and visit several resorts in Riviera Maya and Cancun. Finally, end my trip with a few days and Playa Mujeres. 

I love my job as a travel agent and I am beyond excited to lay my eyes on these glorious locations and share my knowledge and experience with you. 

Happy Travels!

Saint Lucia- Simply Beautiful, Simply Perfect

I feel so proud and very fortunate to have another article published in Beautiful Bride magazine. This issues focuses on honeymoons on the stunning island of Saint Lucia in the Caribbean.

Thank you to all the resorts that provided me friendly tours and wonderful hospitality during my stays. I would also like to thank my Editor. English is his second language, but his grasp of the English language is far superior to most native speakers. Grazie mille 🙂

I hope you enjoy the words I’ve written as well as the imagery that showcases some of Saint Lucia’s highlights.

The Rockettes, Broadway Shows, International Cuisine, Lounges, Night Clubs and more…you would think I am talking about The Big Apple, but I am not.  The Norwegian Breakaway will be the newest ship in the Norwegian fleet and much of the decor and entertainment and is centered on NYC.  There is even a Haven of ultra luxury suites with private butlers to offer you a truly spectacular vacation.

Visit this site for photos, the countdown clock and to inquire about sailing on this magnificent ship.

“…If you and your fiancé are adventure lovers who enjoy escaping to the great outdoors and prefer seeing wildlife rather than living the wild life, an adventure honeymoon may be just what you crave…”

My Traveling Panda’s newest travel article is officially published in the Summer 2012 issues of Las Vegas Bride and Beautiful Bride (published nationally, including the Atlanta and Orlando markets). Which “into the wild” destination is your next “must visit” destination? An African Safari, an Alaskan Cruise, a Belize scuba diving adventure and an exploration of the Galapagos Islands?
