Airline Security Tips

Millions of people will be traveling for the holidays, which mean the airports will be busier than ever. Due to the new Transportation Security Administration (TSA) regulations on full body scanning and pat downs, the security lines may take even longer to get through. While this is frustrating, there are some things you as a traveler can do to make your pass through the security checkpoint a little more efficient.

Puerto Vallarta – Beautiful, Friendly & Relaxing

I’m so relaxed that it’s hard to even write this blog. Maybe it’s because I never left the resort. Yes, I had the most lazy, relaxing, rejuvenating vacation I’ve ever experienced. But I also had a really awesome, fun time. There were 19 friends & family who traveled to Puerto Vallarta (14 of us from Nebraska). We traveled on a Saturday and since we are all true Husker fans, my sister made us all wear Husker red in the airport. WOW! Did we make a name for ourselves in airports, and once we arrived at the resort we were known as Nebraska. I’ll admit, it did make travel even more fun.

What Happens in Vegas

I’m sure you’ve heard the now-famous phrase, “What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas!” After a short trip to Las Vegas for a convention last month, I have to say I think it’s unfortunate if that’s what happens. While some things happenings should stay in Vegas, there are those fabulous experiences that need to be shared! Las Vegas has a lot to offer – it’s so much more than just gambling. The shows are amazing, the shopping is fabulous and the weather is pretty good too.

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!
