Hi Disneygal. We are heading to Anguilla in May, Washington DC in June, Virgin Gorda in August and then Mustique. Busy travel schedule. We are now looking into 2009. Probably stay in the Central America area due to the dollar's value. It will be our 20 year wedding anniversary and we were hoping to go back to Yugoslavia (Slovenia and Croatia) where we spent a lot of time before we were married and also our honeymoon. I will price it out but not sure. How about you...any other trips?
Hi bj03, that's anice schedule! I have a trip planned in May to the Ukraine and Copenhagen. Trying to put the finishing touches on that one. I haven't been to Eastern Europe before, a little anxious about it, but it should be fun. Then nothing big until this December trip. I'm also thinking about 2009 - Costa Rica has been on our list for a few years, but we haven't been there yet. I have a friend who tells me repeatedly that we must go. Will probably wait until there are some LL offerings for 2009 and seewhat looks interesting.I'll ask for your advice if we're looking at Central America!
We have a couplemore years until our 20th anniversay, but now you have me thinking.... we went to French Polynesia for our honeymoon and would love to go back, especially to Bora Bora. Maybe I should get that idea on the table now! Our anniversay is in March and we usually go skiing. With plenty of lead time, I think I can sell the idea for a 20th anniversary trip to our honeymoon spot.
Definitely start thinking of the 20th anniversary. I did receive an email back concerning a possible Slovenia and Croatia trip. Its not exactly what I asked for and no prices were listed so will have more to do on this.
Your schedule sounds wonderful. We enjoyed Eastern Europe in the 80's and 90's. Copenhagen is a fun city. You must visit the Little Mermaid statue (it is very small...I kept looking for some massive structure), Tivoli Gardens, and just the overall Scandenavian (BAD SPELLING) atmosphere. Will you be cruising or tour group or your own?
Hi bj03, Yes, really looking forward to Copenhagen. Our hotel will be pretty close to Tivoli Gardens. Wasn't that part of the inspiration for DisneyLand? I'll have to see how it compares. We'll have a driver and translator for part of the time in the Ukraine, but otherwise on our own.
It will be wonderful. Have a great time. How did you coordinate the Ukraine part? Sounds like how we do Central America with a driver and sometimes person to show us sights. We use a company that specializes in a particular region.
Hi. I've been working with a young woman in Kiev who runs a travel company to arrange these things for visitors. She was recommended to me, and has been very good so far. If anyone reading this is interested, I'll be happy to forward the specifics. It's all very new to me, as I usually make all the arrangements myself. But for smaller hotels outside the city, there is no website, they don't take credit cards, etc. It would have been difficult to figure out. For Copenhagen, I booked the hotel on Priceline. Very happy with the Marriott, at a fraction of the rack rate. So, we've strayed from the original topic! I hope you have everything figured out for the Barbados/Cotton House trip!
We stayed at the Colony Club a couple years ago and consider Barbados our FAVORITE destination. We have traveled extensively and have gooten picky and loved our stay at the Colony Club. The people on Barbados, the Bajans, are some of the nicest folks I have ever met.
Hi phlames. Haven't been to Barbados since 1984. We will be heading there in November just for a night before and a night after our trip to Mustique. Have you visited Turtle Beach? I think they are related to Colony Club. I think TB is an all-inclusive and more children than Colony Club but I think they have reciprocal priveledges? I am not sure. What can we expect for weather in November?
Tutrle Beach does not sound familiar but the resort next door to the Colony Club was in the process of being remodeled as I recall. The thing about the Colony Club I did like was very few children. We stayed for 5 nights and enjoyed visiting the area restaurants, we rented a car and toured about for a couple days which was lovely. The food at the resort is very good and make sure to have a flying fish sandwich on the beach washed down with a Banks beer. November should be a very pleasant time to visit, we were there in the spring and it was rainy but we live in South Florida so rain is nothing new to us.
