Dan and I with Travel Quest Founders, Bonnie & Walt Lee
Dan and I just attended our host agency’s annual conference in Orlando. If you’ve ever attended a training conference, you know the feeling when it’s all over: brain overload! You’ve just spent days with other like-minded people, networking, sharing experiences, learning new concepts and I mean WOW! Where do you begin? There’s kind of a “high” that goes along with learning something new. But how do you put things into perspective? How do you create a reasonable and achievable Action Plan? How do you make sure that you don’t just toss everything you learned into a “one day I’ll go through my notes” pile?
It IS overwhelming and, unfortunately, we don’t always have the luxury of being able to take a few days off to skim through our notes, decide priorities, or create action plans and tasking lists. We have to fit all of that into that nasty schedule that has been waiting for us to return from our time away.
That’s where I am today – trying to steal a minute or two from my schedule to decide which great and amazing concept I picked up this weekend I’ll begin with. And my head is about to explode!
So … here are a few new things we’ll be bringing to the table over the next few months.
Cruise River to Normandy Beach: We’re work with a remarkable River Cruise Line, planning a group cruise for veterans and their families for a once-in-a-lifetime experience. We’ll be cruising down the Seine River with a stop in Honfleur to walk the historic Normandy beaches, the site of the D-Day landings. (By the way, if you’re part of a veterans’ group that would like to explore a specific location, let us know! We’d love to help design your perfect adventure!)
Visit to the Holy Land: Here is your chance to experience scripture instead of only reading it! As we visit Cana, Nazareth, Jericho, the Mount of Olives, Jerusalem, and Bethlehem, we’ll follow the path of Jesus, follow in his steps on Via Dolorosa (the “Way of the Cross”), sail across the Sea of Galilee, and visit the cave of our Lord’s birthplace, and so much more! (We also have amazing faith-based cruises and retreat opportunities that we’d love to share with you!)
Mississippi River Steamboat Cruise - Civil War: Join us for a thought-provoking journey designed to provide insight surrounding the times and the events that precipitated this epic conflict. This Civil War voyage pays tribute to American history by remembering the soldiers who gave their lives in a war that changed our nation. Your heart will be touched and your knowledge enriched as you capture the poignancy of it all.
Dates haven’t been determined yet but stay tuned – or contact us to be put on the list to be kept up-to-date on the plans!
Are you a Missionary planning a trip to serve others within or outside of the United States? We now offer amazing airfare discounts for missionaries, including up to 3 suitcases FREE! We’d love to be your new travel provider and help you plan your next missionary experience!
Did you know? We can now book your air! We’ve partnered with a new program that allows us to book airlines – sometimes at reduced fares – and take all the stress off your shoulders! Plus, our booking is 100% refundable and can be held without an initial deposit for 24 hours! There are so many other great perks to booking with us, so give us a call and let’s talk about it!
We hope you’ll find something here that will spark a thought or two, tickle your bucket list dreams, or maybe touch your heart and prompt you to try a new adventure! We are looking forward to being your Vacation Designer so we can help create memories that will last a lifetime – through journeys that take your breath away!
