SUNsational Travel Tips


SUNsational Travel Tips

I LOVE to travel, but unfortunately
I do not get to travel as much as I
would like to!
If I ever win the lottery,
I will spend a LOT more time
on vacation!  
I love the feeling of being footloose & fancy free!
I love meeting new people and
Take a look today's getaway picture

Travel Tips
1.  Narrow down your places of interests
2.  Search the many travel websites for hotels
that meet your requirements.
3.  When you find a hotel/resort do visit
Trip advisor to check out recent reviews.
Do keep in mind that there are always going to be people that will
write a bad review because they will NEVER be happy with anyplace.
4.  Focus on the things that are your main concerns when you stay at a hotel.
Examples-cleanliness, food & location.
5.  Visit the travel websites for the best prices
6.  Unless you are sure that the price is the best possible price OR
                                 it is one of the last rooms, wait a few days to  book the hotel. 
That way you can keep your eye the price & you won't feel guilty about
paying what you are paying.
7.  After you have booked your trip, do take time each day to
dream of your upcoming trip!
A few of my favorite travel sites that I have used & not been disappointed with are:

They are the type of friends that
no matter what is going on,
will stop what they are doing

going with you

cold drink at
the end of
a very
So raise your glass to good friends, CHEERS !

Tropical Tuesday-Paradise

 Pinned Image

Paradise is somewhere different
for everyone!
My PARADISE is a place where:
The sun is shinning
I have my toes in the sand
A cold drink in my hand
I am surrounded by beautiful blue water
I can leave the world behind me.
So put on your flip flops
 take a tropical daily getaway . . . . .

Sunday in the City-Venice, Italy

Sunday in the City

Goes to Venice, Italy

I LOVE, love, love this quote
Most of the time there is no place that I would rather be
than sitting in a chair where the ocean meets the sand.
You know the place!
Where your toes are in the cool blue water.
Where the WaVeS gently wash up on your legs
the rest of your body is soaking up the warm sunshine!
The place where your body is in perfect balance! 
The place where the rest of the world disappears! 
On MOST days, that would be my perfect place!
sometimes I just get that feeling,
the one that says,
 "I want to be lost in a city!"
A city where I can go unnoticed.
A city where I can go at my own leisurely pace,
but at the same time be surrounded with all of the hustle and bustle
that a city has to offer.
A place where I can forget about everything else
except for what I am doing at that moment!
Even though I have never traveled to Venice, Italy
I imagine that it would be just
that type of place!
So sit back and enjoy your daily 5 minute
getaway  . . .
& then tell me what your perfect place is!

Ice, Ice Thursday

Anything Goes Thursday

Ice Sculptures

What is it about an ice sculpture that gets everyones attention
and has us all oohing & aahing in a
matter of seconds? 
Is it the beauty, the uniqueness, the time that it takes to sculpt it
or something else entirely?
I'm not sure what it is, but ever since I was a child,
I always come to a dead stop when I see one!
So grab a hot cup of coffee and join me in taking
a 5 minute vacation to admire these beauties!
Don't forget to subscribe to my posts so
you don't miss out on your daily 5 minute vacation!
