Ireland – Amazing, Magical & Fun (part 3)

For my last blog on Ireland, we’re off to visit the Cliffs of Moher and Galway, a city many say is their favorite in Ireland. The famous Cliffs of Moher are an amazing site to see, ranging in height up to 714 feet. With waves crashing at the base they are stunningly beautiful. We were in awe of the beauty of the Cliffs. As of July 2009, the Cliffs were named one of 28 global finalists in the “New Seven Wonders of Nature”. The “New Seven Wonders” winners will be announced on November 11, 2011. Hey, maybe I have seen one of the new Seven Wonders of Nature!

Ireland – Amazing, Magical, and Fun! (Part 2)

Our Ireland Pub Tour continues through the Ring of Kerry and Killarney!

Our day started with a horse and carriage ride into Killarney National Park. It was 9:30 in the morning with a slight mist, a bit of fog, and a tiny bit of sun peeping through. The sights were truly amazing and our guide jokingly showed us where leprechauns white water raft, bungee jump and enjoy a park bench. If you find yourself in Killarney, I would definitely recommend exploring the park on horse drawn carriage.

Ireland – Amazing, Magical, and Fun!

Wow! The AurTravel Ireland Pub Tour was certainly fun, educational and beautiful!! If you have ever dreamed of going to Ireland, don’t wait! It is even better than I imagined.

Our trip started in Dublin, a city of over one million people. To me, it is like any other large city except the buildings are ancient and beautiful. We were near downtown Dublin and the crowds on the sidewalks reminded me of New York City or Chicago.

I Really Do Like Southwest Airlines

I think I am in the right profession. After all these years of selling travel (27 to be exact), I still love to travel. Today I am on a plane to Las Vegas to attend a conference for people who sell wedding-type products. I am going for our Amazing Honeymoons division to learn more about marketing destination weddings and honeymoons. I believe you truly can teach an old dog new tricks!

Germany – A Country Everyone Will Love!

With a name like Nienhueser, you would know that someday I had to go visit my “homeland.” I just returned from hosting a 10-day trip to Germany. The tour was themed around my Lutheran Heritage and traced the footsteps of Martin Luther. The main reason for the tour was to attend the Passion Play (Passionspiele) in Oberammergau, Germany. Germany is a fabulous country full of friendly people, beautiful sights and delicious food and German beer.

Are you ready for some football?

Are you ready for some football?

We are! Well, technically I’m not because I’d like it to just stay summer year round. But some people are! I guess if it has to end, at least it’s time for some Husker football! AurTravel is headed to Seattle for the Nebraska Cornhuskers vs. Washington Huskies game to help cheer our team to victory.

My Favorite Things in Cabo!

Cabo San Lucas Mexico is my all time favorite place to vacation! I have been to Cabo several times and love it more each visit! Leave all your cares behind in Los Cabos, where the desert meets the sea. The area offers a collection of the peaceful and the exciting that you are free to choose from, depending on your mood. Spend the day teeing off on a world-class golf course, deep-sea fishing in the Pacific or sunning yourself by the pool at your luxurious resort. At night, dine in one of the many elite restaurants and dance the night away in an exhilarating nightclub. Los Cabos is considered Mexico’s most exclusive destinations.

Should I Buy Travel Insurance?

Many people wonder if they should buy travel insurance or if it is a rip off? In fact, I recently read an article about the top 10 travel purchases you don’t need and one was travel insurance. My mouth literally dropped open! I am shocked that any reporter who really dug into the facts could tell you that you don’t need travel insurance. Sure there are times that travel insurance may not be the wisest choice, but if you are buying a package, cruise, or tour and are spending a good amount of money – buy travel insurance!
