Ailsa's Travel Page

I love to travel, and I've been to many, many amazing places, thanks to a wonderful childhood where my parents took us on great trips every year, and since my Dad was a teacher, we always had March Breaks, long Summer Vacations, and all sorts of other holidays to discover North America and beyond. I always thought it was really important to truly know your Country, so I am particulalry fond of Road Trips, and I used to love camping, but now, frankly, I love the Driving Holidays, but we always book ahead into a great hotel so we know we'll be happy and comfy each night. Makes a big difference every where we go!

I just travelled up to Seattle a couple of months ago, rented a car and drove up to Vancouver, Canada, and that was a beautiful trip. It was a fraction of the cost for the three of us (I went with my two children, Cara and Aidan) to fly to Seattle and rent the car, as opposed to flying straight into Vancouver. It's always wise to check out nearby airports in case you could save a lot on Airfare, too.

Both my children are travelling this Christmas, so I think I might go to Mexico, or something! I'll let you know if I find a Great Deal!

Quick Tip: I just discovered this on our trip to Canada... if you get to the Hotel, and you chose it because you are like us and love to go for a swim in the evening, or first thing in the morning, but you get there and their pool is inoperational (yes, freezing cold water counts as 'inoperational'!), you can ask the person at the front desk if they will give you a discount off your bill because of the situation with the pool. Sometimes you will get a discount off the total of your bill, and sometimes they will comp you a little something. Better than nothing, and it's their job to provide the services they say they have, right, so it's okay to ask.

Word to the Wise: Be sweet about it and you're far more likely to have Great Success, as Borat might say! lol!

< >

Okay, so I've been living in Los Angeles for almost 3 years, now, and I'm down here to teach Special Education, which I dearly love, and for the most part, we're having a great time. For a while there it was more of a struggle than it was worth, so I seriously considered moving to pretty much anywhere I had ever vacationed -- how crazy is that?? It's like 'anywhere I've ever been that appealed to me on vacation is open territory for me to live'... at least for a year! I think what the deal is with that line of thinking, for me, is that if I enjoyed it for a week, what would happen if I lived there for a year? Would I be more likely to meet someone nice, and wouldn I be far more likely to meet a man who would enjoy the idea of marriage anywhere but L.A.?? haha! Ah, well. The important thing is that traveling opens up new worlds for you,and sometimes (quite often) there is someone special, or interesting, or just sexy, that you meet on vacation, and you never know what kind of sparks will ignite! Sometimes that's why people go on Holiday! LOL!

I check all the Travel Sites ... you know I love a great deal! I am constantly surprised at how incredibly different the prices are from site to the next, so take a few extra minutes to shop around, save yourself some money.

Teacher Tip: I just found out that some hotels offer a discount for 'Government Employees', and I had never really viewed myself (a Teacher!) as such, but Teachers are considered to be Government Employees because they are paid through the State. Good to Know, right?? Always ask for a Discount. Why not??

There will be no nursing home in my future.........
When I get old and feeble, I am going to get on a Princess Cruise Ship. The average cost for a nursing home is $200 per day. I have checked on reservations at Princess and I can get a long term discount and senior discount price of $135 per day. That leaves $65 a day for:
1. Gratuities which will only be $10 per day.
2. I will have as many as 10 meals a day if I can waddle to the restaurant, or I can have room service ( which means I can have
breakfast in bed every day of the week).
3. Princess has as many as three swimming pools, a workout room, free washers and dryers, and shows every night.
4. They have free toothpaste and razors, and free soap and shampoo.
5. They will even treat you like a customer, not a patient. An extra $5 worth of tips will have the entire staff scrambling to help you.
6. I will get to meet new people every 7or 14 days.
7. T.V. broken? Light bulb need changing? Need to have the mattress replaced? No Problem! They will fix everything and apologize for your inconvenience.
8. Clean sheets and towels every day, and you don't even have to ask for them.
9. If you fall in the nursing home and break a hip you are on Medicare. If you fall and break a hip on the Princess ship they will upgrade you to a suite for the rest of your life.

Now hold on for the best! Do you want to see South America, the Panama Canal, Tahiti, Australia, New Zealand, Asia, or name where you want to go? Princess will have a ship ready to go. So don't look for me in a nursing home, just call shore to ship.

P.S. And don't forget, when you die, they just dump you over the side at no charge...

Have you guessed that I really like to Travel -- AND I really, really love a great deal??

Well, we did go down to California last summer -- it was an interesting trip... part 'fact-finding', part 'tourism'. I desperately want to go back! Must find a way! I really want to Build a House in California some day!

Here are some great links for all your vacation needs -- Dwight refused to book our Hotels in advance ("How could ALL the good rooms be full in Vegas -- there's 5700 rooms for each hotel...!" Of course, by the time we got there, they were all full -- who knew other people might also want to go to Vegas, huh??). And so, from now on, I'm booking ahead!
