What we're about

Tired of paying high-priced travel companies to see the world and yet you still seem to miss all the best adventures? Travel with me and we will travel on a budget yet we will see all of the best sites, do all of the adventures, and create memories of a lifetime. I am a retired single, and I am tired of traveling alone. We will be traveling in small groups of six or eight. This is a FIRST COME, FIRST SERVE when booking with me. I DO NOT charge you $600 or more if you are traveling solo, but if you want a room to yourself let me know in advance. Your total cost will include absolutely everything, round-trip airline tickets, overnight accommodations, adventures, museums, concerts, airport transfers, bus tickets, rental cars, and anything else you can possibly imagine. Your trip cost does not include food or drinks. If you want to book your own airline ticket so you can earn points or use points, I am totally fine with that also. Do not wait, these trips will fill up very quickly. Price listed is estimated cost, actual price (usually within a $100.00 difference) will be listed one month prior to departure. When you chose to take one of my trips, a $100.00 deposit is required to hold your spot and the remaining balance must be paid within 4-6 weeks before travel date.

I am a fast paced person but do enjoy down time. I will make sure we see absolutely everything major in each city we attend. If at anytime you do not want to do a volcano climb, a bike tour, a museum or anything else, this is your vacation and you are free to do what you want so long as you are present when we move on to the next area.

Also, I am NOT a travel agent, and I will not be responsible if you miss your flight or get injured, WE ARE A GROUP OF FRIENDS, simply traveling together. Now should you get hurt...I will not leave you behind, I will help make all necessary arrangements to get you home, to and from a hospital or what ever else you may need because you are MY FRIEND!

One last note, I am very CHRISTIAN and whenever possible, wherever I am, I always try to check out a new service/mass on each Sunday of our vacations. You do not have to attend if you chose not to.

Released in June 1978, the movie just celebrated its 40th anniversary last year and remains one of the most popular musicals of all time. Based on a Broadway show of the same name, the story is set in the fall of 1958 at Rydell High and follows innocent new girl Sandy (Olivia Newton-John) and bad boy greaser Danny (John Travolta) through their tumultuous love story. After a summer romance, Danny and Sandy are thrown for a loop when they unexpectedly run into each other on the first day back at school. Both Travolta and Newton-John have ties to the Tampa Bay area. Travolta and his wife, actor Kelly Preston, are Scientologists and frequent the world headquarters in Clearwater. They also have a home in the gated community north of Ocala called Jumbolair. It’s designed for fellow aviation enthusiasts and boasts the longest private paved runway in the country. Newton-John, who was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1992, is on the board of advisers for the Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa and has said Lee Moffitt has been a mentor to her for her own cancer center in her hometown of Melbourne, Australia.
