Last week, before or just after the Easter break, if you are signed up for our mailing you may have received our newest Bucket List Brochure. Or you may receive on a regular basis our special offers for tailor made or smart package holidays. Some of you are very familiar with how these work and some of you may not be, so I am here to explain.

So we are into April already, it is mad to think it just felt like Christmas a few weeks ago! But no, as we get older for some reason time now just seems to fly. After a few busy months with work, the next couple of months are now going to include some play.

I recently watched a wildlife documentary on Puerto Rico on BBC2 narrated by the wonderful David Attenborough and was hooked.
I have never been to this Island in the Caribbean but now want to visit and not just for a day. I was amazed at the current rehabilitation programmes that are in place for specific species that are native to this small Island. So not only do these ‘Isles of Enchanment’ have amazing history but also some beautiful species of marine and wildlife.

Most of the ships I have sailed on, you will normally find 1 to 2 areas that you can smoke. This is normally on one side of the ship or at the aft of the ship. On other ships, there may be more areas and sometimes smoking is still permitted in indoor spaces such as the casino or a smokers room.

For some reason, there seems to be more and more stories of cruise guests missing their ship when in port. I am on several cruise pages via Facebook and have heard this a lot recently where guests comment on how the ship departed leaving guests on shore because they didn’t get back in time.

Last week I helped a friend travelling on their own to book a flight. Now, as a travel agent I am always happy to help but normally do not get involved in friends booking their own flights unless they ask. This friend is slightly different as he was returning back to Spain after a long episode in hospital and I need to make sure he had the right assistance in place so he could be as independent as possible.

Back in october 2016, 5 colleagues and myself escorted a group from the MSC Splendida to Lake Garda and Venice.
This was the first time I had been to Lake Garda or known locally as Lago di Garda. I was really looking forward to seeing this region of Italy and the famous lake that bring millions of visitors each year to this area of northern Italy.

Happy New Year and welcome to 2017.
I hope you all had a great Christmas and new year celebrations.
My Christmas was a nice few days with my parents in the Spanish mountains with friends whom came to join us for Chrimbo dinner, eating too much and watching old re runs of Morecambe and Wise Christmas specials in our new PJ’s!
