Don’t put it off

It’s easy to forget. In all the excitement of holiday planning and merry making for others it is easy to forget to put your own needs and desires on the agenda.

It’s easy to put it off. With all the demands of being an adult in this world it is easy to wait until things are ‘just right’ to do something extravagant for yourself.

It’s easy to make excuses. There are bills to pay, mortgages to manage, groceries to buy, retirement to save for. Travel can seem too much of a luxury to indulge in so it is sidelined ‘for now’.

However the truth is that travel is the ultimate gift. It is one that continues to give long after the suitcases are returned to storage and the tan has faded. It is both the experience of the trip and the reflection of it for years to come that allow this gift to be savoured for eternity. It is a joyful moment in time that is frozen forever in a happy mind.

I firmly believe that travel enriches our lives one journey at a time. We have but one lifetime and as hard as we try we must acknowledge that conditions are never ‘just right’ to put your dreams into action. So, how about NOW?

If you are in Canada now is a great time to call the Experts at Niche Travel to give this gift to someone you love…including yourself.

Destination weddings are good for everyone

I have been to many weddings, most of which were a lot of fun and full of love.  My own was a winterland love fest in Lethbridge in the dead of March.  What we lacked in sunshine and warm weather we made up in revelry and dancing.  I honestly wouldn’t have had it any other way and, ten years later, the marriage has stuck.  However if I was to do it again, and just may (loving nod to my husband), I would seriously consider a destination wedding.

A few years ago I was fortunate enough to have a friend oblige me in my travel lust by getting married in Mexico and while it may well be true that she chose a destination wedding for her own love of sunshine and good times, I felt like a winner none the less.  It all started with some margaritas at the airport with friends who were also attending the wedding.  We had parked all our children and pets with caring loved ones for the week and could let our hair down from day one.  Boarding the friendly West Jet flight that took us towards the sun we were greeted by none other than the bride and groom, and while I can’t be certain, I think they enjoyed our overly boisterous excitement of their impending nuptials.

The week at the stunning Grand Palladium Vallarta was spend visiting with friends, lounging on the beautiful beach, dining on delicious food, partaking of free surfing lessons, drinking frosty beverages from one of many great bars, and swimming in one of the lovely pools.  The ceremony took place on a patio overlooking the ocean and the reception was right on the beach.  It was perfect in every way.

Another one? In the pool? Well maybe just one more…

The view from our room

It was a reunion, a party, a vacation and a wedding all rolled into one sun drenched good time.  I would recommend to all you will be brides out there to think about booking yourself in for a whole week of love rather than just one day.  Your guests will love you for it!
