After a recent conversation with a client I feel inspired to blog about the value in using a really good travel advisor.  I would also say that is not a one size fits all match when it comes to travel agents and clients.  There are many different types of travel agents out there and for now I will just talk about how I work with my clients.  I call myself an advisor because I am just that.

Crossing the Equator: Sometime last night we crossed the Equator.  From the beginning of time seafarers have partaken in ancient ceremonial initiations for crossing specific navigational parallel's on the globe.  Such practices are so vintage in origin that their derivation has been lost, but it is believed that invitations in such secret societies began in the Middle Ages, and it is possible that it began with the Vikings.

The Daily Currents , the ship’s daily, shares information either about the places we are visiting or on sea days gives general information about the world.  Today it has to do with continents, and I found it very interesting so I am recording for my future information.

I came across this safety video today from Air New Zealand which has to be the most creative safety videos yet! Not only is it entertaining, but also promotes the destination and the final film in the Hobbit series.  I also noticed at 2:26 there is a bungy jump that I so daringly attempted during my last visit to New Zealand!

Due to my recent affiliation with McCabe World Travel in McLean, VA I took a trip to D.C. this week.  The main purpose was to spend a day in the McCabe office and the other to visit the Virtuoso Hotels.  There are currently 9 Virtuoso properties in D.C. and I was able to check out 8 of them yesterday.  They were all fantastic and unique in their own way.

Chef Jen’s  Cornbread Recipe (of Weekapaug Inn)

Sailing into Antalya was very pretty.  A long narrow strip of Beach with very high mountains in background made it feel like sailing into a half circle.  At certain times of the years once can travel 45 minutes into the mountains and snow ski and then come back to the beach and swim.

According to tradition in the second century BC King Attalos II ordered his men to find "heaven on earth".  After an extensive search, they discovered the region of Antalya and the King agreed that heaven on earth had been found.
