It’s that time of year again! Stores are already filled with garlands, lights, and pumpkin spice and the eagerness to sit around the table enjoying the company of friends and family is a bit amplified this year. Regardless of what is going on in the world, there is nothing stronger than family. While dinner conversation starters are far from lacking in 2020, we are looking forward to talking about anything but. We want to talk about the future and making memories with those that are most important to us.
Holidays are a great time to talk about travel and your dream vacations and then make them happen. Few activities can create better family memories than a family vacation and this year has taught us the importance of that. Once you suggest the idea, you will be surprised about how many of your loved ones enjoy traveling but don’t want to do it alone and perhaps, don’t know where to start in the planning process.
We have you covered! Take a look at some of our upcoming offerings and suggest a few of your favorites (we won’t tell). Don’t forget to tell them about the adventurous activities, gorgeous scenery, and of course, the stress-free planning and payment options. Believe us, you’ll be hailed as the holiday hero when your family starts planning their vacation. The “goodbyes” won’t be nearly as sad since you’ll all be eager to see each other again in the rainforests of Costa Rica or maybe the mountains of Yellowstone National Park. Happy planning and Happy Holidays!
