As many of you are aware, I just finished a huge summer blog party here on The Eco Chic! I was busy for 2 weeks straight making other mom’s days…ie, giving them stuff for free! Now, it’s time for a vacation!
This blogger is getting ready to take a business trip and a vacation shortly afterwards. We decided this year to be spontaneous and see where the last minute deals took us.
I know a wonderful lady, Carol, at CJ’s Great Getaways Blog, that is a travel agent. She’s really new to the blog world but an experienced traveler for sure! As a child I remember her taking us all sorts of neat places; Bahama’s, Arizona, Maine, Orlando, cruising, and more! Did I mention, she’s also my mom! She’s a wonderful travel agent too.
She found a great eco-tour company, Gap Adventures, that offers some amazing trips! My favorite is the 16 person yacht around the Galapagos Islands! But that will wait a few years so that Lil’ B will remember the experience. This company also partners with Planeterra, they offer a unique type of travel, Voluntours! You take a vacation and volunteer to help others at your destination.
As a mom, these vacations are the ones that will shape your children into caring adults. I can’t wait to take our family on one soon. In the meantime, I think we’re sticking locally and playing with a Mouse! 😉
Go visit CJ’s Great Giveaways and let her help you plan your next trip. She specializes in group travel, cruising, and more. Just let her know your dream and she’ll make it a reality!
