Where is the Sun?

Right about now, with a Nor’easter blowing cold, wet snow across the gray landscape of New England, I can easily picture myself on a white sandy beach, sun shining, crystal blue water beckoning…can’t you? We can put you in that picture! Our travel agents, Allie and...

Add a Splash of Color

Summer is great for many reasons; one of my favorites is how colorful the world is during these hot sunny months. Here in New England, winters can be long and gray. It’s hard to imagine that now, with all the sunshine, green trees, and blooming flowers everywhere you...

Vacations with a Purpose

All travel has a purpose, even if that purpose is just to sit on a beach and soak up some rays of sunshine. HOWEVER, if you are looking for something a bit more challenging to both mind and spirit, we can offer you some interesting options. We just returned from our...

Some Things Never Get Old

What a perfect way to spend a Saturday – day tripping to Boston to see a supercalifragilisticexpialidocious performance of Mary Poppins. We all know the movie, which debuted in 1964. But, the show first appeared on Broadway only recently – in 2006. The magic still...

If it’s Thursday, it must be Florence

Last Friday, Luigi and I left Logan Airport with a group of Colby-Sawyer College alumni for an Italian odyssey. What a fun group. We started our tour of northern Italy at the one place I can truly say is heaven on Earth – Lago Maggiore (aka the Lake of Dreams) in the...

Day Tripping

There is nothing like spending a day on the coast of Maine on a beautiful summer day. Last week, a group of more than 40 traveled with us to the Ogunquit Playhouse, “America’s Foremost Summer Theatre,” to see a delightful production of the classic, The Sound of Music....

Happy Summer

Although the weather is hot here in New Hampshire, our staff is thinking cold weather…no, it’s not too early to be booking your holiday flights. Why pay peak rates, when you can get great deals now? If you have college students who need flights home over Thanksgiving...
