20 Things Everyone Should Know
Before Going On A Cruise Ship 🛳
Your first cruise can be exciting as you prepare yourself for an unforgettable experience taking in foreign sunsets as you set sail from one horizon to the next. It can also be a bit intimidating if you are planning to test the waters (so to speak) with your first holiday on a ship. With larger ships today reaching as tall as 16 stories high and holding between 3,500 and 5,000 passengers in one go, it is like a small town setting!

Empanadas are hand-sized savory pies that can be found all over South America. In Argentina, every province has its variety. All follow the same basic culinary guideline, a soft pocket of dough that's stuffed with a tasty, savory filling. The origins of the empanada are not entirely clear, but it seems that they first appeared in Argentina in the kitchens of immigrants from northern Spain, where the dish's forebear was a larger, double-crusted pie cut into slices. Once in South America, the empanada
continued to evolve from a pie made with dough to individual pockets of pastry crust, often made with animal fat in beef-loving Argentina. The hand-held pies were baked or fried after being filled with whatever was available in the
region at the time. I'd love to help you plan your trip so be sure to call me
or send me an email when you're ready to start planning.

The Roman Forum was once Ancient Rome's district of basilicas, public spaces, and temples, that made up the Roman Empire's political, commercial, and social center. It is located in a valley between Capitoline and Palatine Hills. When the Roman Empire fell, the Forum did as well. Much of its stone and marble was removed and reused elsewhere. It was used as pastureland in the Middle Ages, and in the 1800s excavations began, which continue even today. The Roman Forum is world famous and a popular tourist destination because it was the forum in Ancient Rome that held the Senate House, making it the most important. The Roman Forum's size was 170 meters by 250 meters. Some of the most famous ruins in the Roman Forum include the Temple of Vesta, the Temple of Saturn, the Arch of Titus, the Rostra, the Temple of Castor and Pollux, and the Curia, the Senate House. This is truly an exciting spot in Rome you wouldn’t want to miss!
As a travel advisor I enjoy finding new and exciting activities for my clients as they travel around the world.
It is for that reason that I believe that no 2 itineraries are the same, as these differ according to the wishes and wants of each client.
Cultural immersion or a combination of eat play and learn is a great way to truly experience a destination. Travelers now have the opportunity to dive into the heritage of their destination, taking home more than just a memory but unique new skills too.
How about staying in an old pasta factory and experiencing a cooking class taught by a local?

Totem poles are part of the culture of many indigenous people of Alaska, British Columbia, and the Pacific Northwest. Totem poles are sculptures carved usually from Western Red Cedar or other large trees. The totem poles represent the traits and characteristics of each clan. The usual figures found on these poles include the raven (a symbol of The Creator), the eagle (representing peace and friendship), the killer whale (a symbol of strength), the Thunderbird, the beaver, the bear, the wolf, and the frog. It’s interesting to note that a totem pole is still created today even though it’s been part of the history for many decades. I’d love to help you plan your trip, so be sure to pick up the phone and call me or send me an email when you’re ready to start planning.
If you love salmon, you just can't get any better than wild-caught Alaskan salmon. Did you know there are five types of salmon species in the Alaskan waters?
Can you name them? 🤔
Most people guess sockeye right way. According to the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, the others are chum, coho (silver), chinook (king) and pink.
Alaskan salmon is a rich source of a variety of vitamins and minerals, as well as lean protein and omega-3 fatty acids and is healthiest when caught in the wild. Nothing beats eating a healthy meal on your vacation.
Have you had wild-caught Alaska salmon? Can you buy it locally? What's your favorite salmon recipe?

Fun facts about Feta cheese:
1. The cheese must be produced in Greece to be called "feta." "Feta" is actually a legal designation, like Champagne or Roquefort.
2. Understandably, feta is coined from an ancient Greek word, which means, “slice.”
3. Feta cheese can be formed from either goat or sheep's milk, but most cheese lovers will say the best comes from sheep's milk.
4. Did you know that feta is one of the world’s oldest cheeses? Homer actually mentioned it in his epic, the “Odyssey.”
5. Feta cheese is composed of at least 25 percent fat, of which about two-thirds is saturated fat.
6. Benefits of feta cheese? Feta is high in calcium and vitamin B12
7. Think about this, a 1.25 oz. cube of feta cheese has about 100 calories
8. Feta is cured at least three months in brine according to Greek law.

Did you know that we have more than 220 species of reptiles here in Costa Rica?
Iguanas are amazing animals. They shed their skin as they grow—and it’s worth mentioning that they can get up to 6ft. long! They mostly eat fruits and veggies with the occasional insect, snail, or when they’re feeling frisky they’ll grab a bird’s egg. Did you know that iguanas can ‘release’ or break off their tail to evade a predator? These guys also have a ‘third eye’ on top of their head. The extra eye doesn’t form images but helps them identify light changes and movement from a predator. So cool!
