Destinations We Have Visited
In our travel, we have been in Cancun, Puerto Morales and the Riviera Maya. We are in the process of planning a trip back to Cancun this year. Mexico is known for its seaweed, but most resorts clean up the beach every morning.
Jamaica is where we have been the most in our travel. There are several reasons for that. The first reason is because of the vast number of resorts that are available. Each area of the island is unique and the people are wonderful. That is reason number two and it is what makes Jamaica our favorite island. We have so many pictures from Jamaica that I would have to dedicate a page just to that island. We have been to EVERY Sandals and Beaches Resort in Jamaica.
We have been to Turks and Caicos one time. While we were there, we stayed at Beaches Turks and Caicos. The resort is a massive 75 acres with 4 distinct “villages”. With 24 specialty dining restaurants and 15 bars, you would have to spend a few weeks there in order to experience them all.
Our trip to Budapest was when we were on a Riviera River Cruise for the Christmas Markets along the Danube. Budapest is a beautiful, Imperial city that is split in two by the river. The people of Hungary are friendly and resilient. The have just gained their freedom after decades of oppression.
We spent a little less than a week at Sandals Royal Curacao to do a site inspection. The best way to suggest a product or destination, is to go there and experience it first hand. The island of Curacao has friendly people and very explorable. Arid, like Turks, the island is desert like and you see cacti all over the place. The street art in Willemstad is really something to see.
Our travel to the UK included a visit with a friend of Jo’El’s. While we were there, we were in Wales, Manchester, Salisbury, London, Leeds, York and Edinburgh. We saw a lot, but we did not have enough time there. The UK is on our list for another visit, especially Scotland and we need to make it to Ireland.
In our travel to the Napa Valley, we stayed at the River Terrace Inn in Napa. It is located right next to the Oxbow Public Market in downtown Napa. We visited 5 wineries while we were there. Cakebread Cellar Vineyards, Castello di Amorosa, V. Sattui Winery, Domaine Carneros Winery, and Provenance Vineyards.
Our travel in Prague was while we were on a river cruise. We were there during Christmas Market time and the city is simply magical. We rented an apartment in a quiet, residential part of the city and everything we needed was within walking distance.
Unfortunately, we did not get very many pictures while were in Bratislava. It was cool and damp while we were there. It is a quaint little European city.
The city of Esztergom is in northern Hungary. It is a city that sits on the Danube with the country of Slovakia across the river to the north. It is a very walkable, small city with an amazing Basilica that sits atop a hill overlooking the Danube below.
