Life is getting better for me these days. One of my ailments has gone into spontaneous remission, but I shall continue to take the meds for it as it might return with a vengeance. The other two ailments still plague me, but hopefully they, too, will stop bothering me. I don’t want anything to hinder my ability to enjoy my trip to the East coast in August.
David has been exploring possible tours of Miami and wants to sign up for an all-day tour of the city and the Everglades. Cost is $79 per person. This sounds unbelievably low for a 6-8 hour tour. Is it a scam? I told David that I will call Panda Travel in May to book a tour for us. I think it’s better to have a reputable travel agency help us rather than sign up for a tour online. Yes, it will cost us more due to the commission, but “better safe than sorry.”
Over the years, I have been quite pleased with Panda Travel’s service. They handled our trips to Tokyo in 2008 and to Hong Kong and Macau in 2010. This included air, hotel, transfers, and local tours. Oh, it was fabulous! If you are interested, do type TOKYO in the search bar at the top right of the main screen to see photos of our trip. You also can do the same with HONG KONG. You will see how much fun David and I had.
Though I love to travel abroad, I still prefer to do it just once a year. Traveling requires stamina, which I don’t seem to have these days. Also, it can be quite expensive. We have budgeted a certain amount of money for our annual trips. If the itinerary exceeds that budget, then we cut the number of days we intend to stay in that particular country. Works for us!
