Have the Vacation of a Lifetime by Booking With a Travel Agent

With apps and websites devoted to travel, you might wonder why you would speak to a travel agent near you. Travel agents are not passé, they offer many benefits to you whether you’re traveling abroad or overseas. When you’re looking for a special vacation or traveling to places unknown, your travel agent is your resource who can save you time and money by finding the points of interest and lodging that meets your needs.

Special Needs
More travelers need unique accommodations, for children, pets, or themselves. Your travel agent knows the questions to ask and find those places that work for you and your family. If you have dietary restrictions or physical limitations, your travel agent can find the information for you and help you find the right places to visit. If you’re traveling to a place that could be unsafe for tourists, due to unrest or crime, your travel agent can direct you to safe travel and lodging. Speak to a travel agent near you about the vacation you want. Special requests can be worked out before you go, leaving you free to enjoy your stay.

Multiple Destinations
When you’re making plans to visit somewhere that involves different sites, your travel agent makes the most of your time by planning your trip to get where you want to be quickly. Think about how much time you will spend just trying to get somewhere in a place that you are not familiar with. Instead of spending your vacation or business trip finding the right transportation, enjoy your trip when you speak to a travel agent.

Understanding the Culture
When you speak to a travel agent about your vacation, you have an insight into the culture where you’ll be traveling. For example, in Spain, everyone eats tapas while standing. This may not seem like a big deal, unless you have a problem standing for long periods of time and need to be able to sit down. Some foreign countries have different views on same-sex relationships, which could make traveling there difficult. Working with your travel agent gives you access to this information so that you aren’t in an awkward situation. The knowledge that your travel agent provides is important to your overall enjoyment on your trip.

A Travel Agent Has Clout
By working in the industry, your agent develops relationships with people who make things happen at your travel destination. This gets into places that you could never do on your own. Your online app can’t do anything when the rooms aren’t available, but your travel agent knows who to speak with to get that connecting room or when things go wrong. Don’t underestimate the value of a good travel specialist who wants to make your vacation special.

Find the Best Deals
Speak to a travel agent near you to find the best deals on the trip you want. Agents stay up to date with what’s new from their travel partners, so you can find great prices on your resort or cruise ship. If you’re planning a wedding, you already have enough on your plate and don’t need to spend time planning your honeymoon or travel for guests. Let a travel agent take over some of the work, so you can actually relax on your vacation.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
