Visit the Finger Lakes

The Finger Lakes region of New York State is located in the beautiful and scenic central part of the state, north and west of New York City. Stunning aerial views show the Lakes face north to south and are long and slender like fingers, hence the name Finger Lakes. This upstate New York region was originally home to the powerful Iroquois Indian nation that was able to maintain their freedom from European colonization until after the Revolutionary War when they were sent to reservations and the land was sold and settled. Their mark remains today in the numerous names of the town, lakes and rivers.

Thailand, Not Much Between Despair and Ecstasy

Pack your swimsuit and insect repellent, brace yourself for aggressive souvenir vendors, and head to Thailand before you die.

Aruba, One Happy Place!

My husband and I recently traveled to Aruba to celebrate our 10th anniversary. We chose Aruba because we wanted to go to the Caribbean but, traveling during hurricane season, we didn't want to worry about getting stuck in the path of a storm. The island sits just 15 miles north of Venezuela, south of the hurricane paths, and enjoys gorgeous weather year round. Of course, what we discovered is that Aruba offers far more than good geography.

A Trip Down the Royal Gorge Route

Since 1879, travelers from around the world have made the journey to Cañon City, Colorado to experience the train that follows the rails on a 24-mile roundtrip through the spectacular Royal Gorge. More than 100,000 passengers experience the natural beauty of the Royal Gorge each year aboard Colorado’s finest scenic railroad while enjoying the comfort and charm of the carefully restored Historic Royal Gorge Route Railroad cars.

A World War Anniversary Tour in France

Sightseeing war memorials and other sites of mass carnage are always moving experiences, but never more so than in a milestone anniversary year as 2009 is. This year marks the 65th anniversary of the invasion of Normandy on D-Day during World War II and the 90th anniversary of the end of World War I. What better time to go, learn and pay respect to the multitudes of brave soldiers who fought and lost their lives in pursuit of nothing less than world freedom?

Customer Service Opportunity Missed

Last month I must have qualified for the "Frequent Flyer of the Month" Award. I flew over twenty segments (separate flights) on business. When I mention this to friends and associates, their response is always, "It must be exhausting to work like that."
