Disabled Travel – What You Need To Know


disabled travelWhen you first look into disabled travel you can really be put off with the red tape some insurance companies make you jump through before they will insure you.  For me it was a real eye opener when I was first trying to organise my nephew who has been a paraplegic for about 10 years since he was 16 years old and has never traveled before as he thought it was all a little too hard.

I have to admit though I first thought this way too when I started to first ask questions on his travel.  Obviously it needed to be "easy" and without drama as this I found can stress a wheelchair bound traveler who doesn't want to stick out like a sore thumb and make a fuss.  This was my nephews words when I first started to look into his travel.

Things You Don’t Know About Your Cruise Ship Cabins


Things You Don't Know About Your Cruise Ship CabinPersonally, I love cruise ships and all that they offer, especially the cabin space which becomes your little sanctuary away from activities where you can have an afternoon siesta.  I am sure that there are a few things about your cruise ship cabins that you were not aware of, for example, did you know that the walls and doors are magnetic?  Honestly, I didn’t.

It so happens, that even if the walls don’t feel or look like they are metallic or magnetic, they are.

Christmas Cruise Aboard Radiance of the Seas

CRUISE TIPS  No comments

radiance of the seaA Christmas cruise is magical from the time that you get on board as everyone is in holiday mode and children are already excited about the thought of Santa arriving.  Don't be put off if you are single and thinking of traveling over this type of cruise as I can vouch for it that there were plenty of singles traveling on their own both male and female of all age groups.

I am a bit of a Christmas cruise junky as you know if you have cooked for over 30 years of stuffing turkeys, cooking puddings, cleaning the house only to be trashed again while family members sit back eat drink and sleep while I was cleaning tell you the truth I was sick of being the bunny doing the lot!  But not anymore, I have a staff of 900 looking after my every whim! :)

Travel Single-Wine Tasting Tips

Wine tastingWine tasting tips for the single traveler
Wine tasting can be one of the delightful pleasures of your traveling experience.  Today we want to offer some wine tasting tips for the single traveler.

Have a snack before you embark on your wine tasting experience, something in your tummy will help absorb the alcohol and make the entire experience more pleasurable.  Another option would be to pack yourself a picnic lunch as most wineries will sell you a bottle (or two) of your favorite wine and allow you to dine in their vineyard (perhaps with a new friend you have also made during this time).

Remember to take another bottle (or two) home with you to share with your friends and relive the experience.

Since you are solo for this trip and will not have a personal

Dance ClassesHave ever thought about dance classes as a way of getting out and meeting people? Not only is it great exercise and gives you further social graces it is one of the best ways that singles can link up with each other. It really doesn't matter if you have 2 left feet there will be classes to take you through A-Z and you will gradually pick things up.
