Hello Friends: October 2016 Newsletter

Hello Friends: October 2016 Newsletter

by Chakel Palmer It has been awhile since the last newsletter. Dreams have been dreamt, adventures have been had, and I’m sure some humdrum has happened as well. Of course, as with all good friendships, all we can say is how joyous it is to meet again. We know life gets busy and quite like a whirlwind sometimes, so we’re happy to bring you that moment of vacation with beautiful pictures and reminders to live a little. Today, we’re taking you on a cruise. Just imagine, you wake up in your cozy cabin and look out to see the beautiful ocean with an island in the distance. You get up and enjoy a delicious breakfast as the scenery slowly passes you by. The day is yours and the air carries you away to a simpler time. No deadlines. No running from one activity to the next. You stand on the deck and embrace the simple beauty of sunshine and fluffy clouds or of the incredible and vast starry night sky. Beautiful ports, old friends and new, good food, and an elegant vessel are all part of your incredible day. And when you close your eyes to sleep, it might seem that the day was just a dream, but this is your life, your newest adventure, and we can’t wait to take you there! Ready to go somewhere yet? I know we are. In fact, we’ve planned an adventure for us to experience together in February 2018 (So we have plenty of time to save)! We’re sailing the Grenadine Islands, and we’d love for you to join us. Reserve your spot with your fully refundable* $400pp deposit! Plus, each person who books will also receive $100 onboard credit. Yay! You can find more information below and email or call with any questions. (*Full refund is offered up to 160 days before the...

United Kingdom & Ireland

United Kingdom & Ireland

Greetings! My ‘monthly’ newsletters are turning out to be bi-monthly lately! Hopefully they are still fun to receive whenever I finally get them out though. I get to take you to the United Kingdom and Ireland with this newsletter, so sit back and enjoy!     London There is a vast array of places to visit in the UK, but I’ll begin in London, the most popular destination. In fact, London happens to be hosting the 2012 Summer Olympics starting today! I can’t imagine the excitement going on there right now! The city of London has so much to offer and much of it can be seen while walking the streets around town.  You can take the Big Red double decker buses for a lovely tour of the city, or if you prefer to go underground, there is a great underground transportation system called the Tube. When I visited London a few years ago I had originally thought I would use the Tube to get around because I thought everything was going to be far, since we read about Picadilly Square, Big Ben, Buckingham Palace and so on. However, when we arrived in London we found that walking was so easy and we could see so much more. Everything within Zones 1 & 2 is very close to each other. Some of my favorite sites were the Tower of London, London Eye, Buckingham Palace, London Bridge, and Hyde Park and the Thames River boat.  I could go on and on about the city, but instead here is a link of anything and everything you’d like to know about London.   More United Kingdom As you can see by this UK/Ireland map, there is much more to see than just London! One could easily spend a month between the UK and Ireland and still not see it all. Wales is only 2 hours from London and has some beautiful National Parks, great hiking, beaches, over 600 castles, excellent golf and more! If you head further north you could even stop in Liverpool, the town that is famous for where the Beatles began their career. Or keep on going north to play some golf in Scotland with more than 500 courses to offer!   Ireland On to Ireland … You can fly from the UK or take a ferry from Wales or Scotland. No trip to Ireland is complete without a visit the Blarney Castle and kissing the Blarney stone! But if you can’t make it there, you will have no shortage of castles to see. You will also find many pubs and great food in the towns of Ireland. Ireland is a great country to drive; I have many clients that do B&B...
