Destination--The Philippines


This posting is surrounding a destination I recommend. The Philippines. I have visited multiple times and love the place. It's not what you might expect. In my opinion, it is Hawaii at a much lower price. The beaches are beautiful, the cities are great, and the people are very warm and friendly. I have visited Manila (Makati area) and really enjoyed that. The shopping is great and hotels are 5 stars. I have also visited Bohol in the South which has wonderful places to stay and great beaches. And one HUGE plus is your money goes so far there!!!

If you have questions about The Philippines, contact me at

Frequent Stay or Flyer programs

Always sign up for free frequent flyer or stay programs. Many times you get better rooms or better seats if you are part of the program. I know when I stay at hilton hotel, they have a hilton honors floor where the rooms are nicer, in better locations, and have more amenities.

Travel inurance


Always consider travel insurance on more costly trips. I always purchase travel insurance on my cruises. You have to remember you are protecting your vacation funds. If something happens to your trip, you can get your money back in many situations. (illness, weather related issues, trip delay, accident coverage, theft, lost baggage, medical evacuation, etc.)Meaning you may be able to use the funds later to take another trip, rather than just being out of luck. My advice is check it out and be aware of your options. Here are some reputable companies that offer this product:

Best travel magazines

Good morning,

Arthur Frommer's Budget Travel:

This magazine has great articles and is a wonderful way for you to plan your future trips.

If you are a die hard cruiser like me, you must have this magazine. I am taking a cruise of the Caribbean in Dec, and will start my cruise in San Juan. The magazine told me all about San Juan and what do do, where to stay, etc. Check it out.
