Some 2020 Travel Adventures For You!

Hello and Happy August!

I hope you are enjoying your Summer.  I have been sticking close to home and milking every last minute out of this warm weather season.  My travels will kick in again in the Fall and I already have some fabulous plans for 2020.  Which brings me to the subject of this blog post.

If you have been reading my blogs….and I hope you have, you know that I have done some ocean sailing with Oceania Cruises and some river sailing with AmaWaterways.  Well, I have a couple of opportunities for you to consider for 2020.  If you thinking it’s too early to start planning travel for next year, you are incorrect in that thinking.  Cruise lines/tour companies have posted their itineraries for 2021.  The best pricing and the best cabin selection is had by booking your cruise or your trip early.  So, let me share with you the adventures I would love for you to consider.

Taste of Bordeaux Itinerary Sailing with AmaWaterways-March 19-26, 2020

PROMOTIONAL SAVINGS THROUGH THE END OF SEPTEMBER, 2019-$1000 savings per person per stateroom.

I have partnered with Mike Allas, owner of Tannins Wine Shop in Elmhurst, IL and we are taking a group of like minded people, aka- we all like wine and are fun people, on this 7 day cruise through the Bordeaux, France wine country.  On this cruise with AmaWaterways, we will sail to iconic chateaux and timeless vineyards. Wine tastings will be plentiful while visiting all the scheduled stops along the rivers.  Think about experiencing local traditions, savoring the intense flavors and enjoying adventures that will please your palate in amazing locations while tasting amazing wines of the region.  There will be special tours for us to enjoy presented by the winemakers, along with a dedicated AmaWaterways wine expert in attendance, Brent Amos of Las Positas Vineyards in Livermore, CA.  Brent will be onboard the ship to lead tastings and to suggest pairings with AmaWaterways’ award winning cuisine.

The following flyer contains information on the cruise itself but there is also information on pre and post cruise land options, deck plans and pricing.

Iberian Impressions Itinerary Sailing with Oceania Cruises-August 31-September 7, 2020

This 7 day cruise sails around the Iberian Peninsula from Barcelona, Spain to Lisbon, Portugal.  Portugal and Spain are the new “hot spots” in Europe.  It seems like everyone wants to go there these days.  So why not be a trendsetter and join my group and me on this cruise.

Oceania is known to have the finest cuisine at sea and it’s true!  When I sailed with my group last year on Oceania, see my blog post, we were blown away by our experience.  Everything about the cruise exceeded our expectations and because of this experience, I created this group opportunity to share with you.
