Support your local merchants this fall!

Fall time is a great time to venture out and see places you haven't seen before. Look through your local papers and see if there are any festivals, antique sales, maybe even farmers markets!

Support your local merchants. I know the "superstores" sometimes can save time, but not always money. Think of the families that put their pride &t joy into growing their own vegatables, making their own crafts for enjoyment, and are simply just trying to a make a living.

Maybe in venturing out you might network with someone and make a connection you never would have by going to a "superstore".

Get out...Smell some fresh clean air...&  Have a great weekend!

The Travel Channel- You need a new show & host! ME!

When you think of the "Travel Channel" what do you think of? Places to travel & all types of travel...NO?
Ok,well I do. 1st let me start by saying I L-O-V-E the show "Man vs. Food" well, done! The places he visits are close to my heart especially when he goes to NJ (I'm an original Jersey Girl) Philly, NYC, and home now~ Florida.
Mr. Bourdain, god love 'em! How he goes to those places and can eat some of that food after seeing where it came from 2 seconds before! Now Samantha Brown, yes, I WANT her job!
However, to me The Travel Channel should highlight places I want to "travel" to or cruise to, and see what I'm really missing if I don't go there. Disney, of course is always my favorite to watch. If you've read the rest of my blog you'll know I am a Disney lover. I wish I could be buried there! But have they really run out of ideas at the Travel Channel? Have they found NO ONE that wants to visit different places or do different things while there? What about going to Europe, the islands of the Caribbean, Alaska,? one? No one wants to see the things like Niagra Falls, Washington D.C, or Mrytle Beach? I guess they haven't met pretty ole' me! Pick me. Pick me. I'll do it- I'd be the Giada of the travel channel! For God's sake we could name it where in the world is the Travel Girl! :-)

Using Tripology

Has anyone heard of Tripology?

I guess some have. It's a travel website that you the consumer can punch in what you want in a vacation/ cruise/tour, etc.. and  up to 3 travel agents that are a matched to your trip can contact you back with suggestions and maybe a match will be made.

Sometimes it reminds me of some of those dating services!
Is it a match? Or not? Are you looking to see what's out there for giggles? Or are you really serious about making the connection?

Well,  I am an agent on there and I seem to think that it's not real. I have paid my dues, linked in with them, set up my profile, and I never have any luck. Are there really any serious clients out there? I don't know. I still think word of mouth goes a long way!
But if you are serious and looking for a vacation that works...check out one of the trips I have uploaded for the spring and if you like it come along with us!

How do you find/decide on your vacation?

When it comes down to choosing a vacation how do you do it?
Do you:
1-  Look at different websites?
2-  Use a search engine and hope you find something good?
3-  Call a friend and ask what/where have they gone?
4-  Call a travel agent?
5-  If you see an interesting flyer or a vacation advertised -call about it.
6-  Something else

I'd like to know. Send me a comment.
