When I opened Solutions Travel in 2005, I couldn't imagine how much I would love escorting groups. Since 2006 we have offered a group trip each year and traveled to the most amazing destinations. Highlights include: Alaska, Bermuda, New England and Canada, many islands in the Caribbean, Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons, Ireland, Canadian Rockies and Glacier National Park, the Grand Canyon,Zion National Park, Bryce National Park, Italy, England and Scotland.
Along with experiencing these amazing destinations, I have gained wonderful clients along the way. Many traveling on multiple groups and have become part of the Solutions Travel family.
This year Mike and I were so excited to escort our annual group on a Rhine River Cruise in Europe. A few years ago we enjoyed a river cruise with dear friends and were so excited to share this experience with our clients. I often advertise a group trip 12 - 14 months in advance and had clients that had been excited for this adventure for well over a year. And in the blink of an eye, Corona Virus swooped in and changed life as we all know it. Not only did travel come to an abrupt halt, we were asked to stay at home, social distance from our friends and family and for some odd reason begin to hoard toilet paper!
While disappointed that we would not be able to travel this year, I was thrilled that the entire group decided to move the trip to 2021. So, now the countdown begins again. Only 397 days to go!
If you have followed our website or social media, I had previously teased a group cruise in October 2021 in the Mediterranean, visiting ports in Spain, France and Italy. For now this has been put on hold and we will revisit this itinerary at a later date.
For anyone that may be interested, there is space available to join our Rhine River adventure in May 2021. I have updated the brochure today with the new dates and details, so hop over to our promotions page for a link to the brochure. Traveling with a group provides you a fully escorted trip with someone there to assist with any needs that may pop up along the way. It is also a great way to meet new friends and not feel like you have to navigate this great big world on your own.
While I know that at this very moment travel may the furthest thing from your mind, I encourage you to think ahead about where you want to be next year. If a group trip isn't for you, then determine what is next on your bucket list and working on turning that dream into a reality.
Until next time!
