You can email me any time for more information: cate.ciu@flightcentre.ca  . In honor of this sale, I wanted to include a couple of my own highlights from some of the places on the list!

  1. Dole Pineapple Plantation in Hawaii
    Oahu is breath taking. The Hawaiian culture just inspires the ultimate sense of CHILL. The pineapple…ahem CHERRY … on top of the trip, was the my visit to the Dole Planation, where I tried delicious pineapple ice cream and looked my very best in a bikini (haha get it? because I am a pineapple in the pic below)
  2. Grand Canyon just outside Las Vegas
    I did Grand Canyon independently the first time, and with a tour the second. I highly recommend the latter. There is so much to see, and it is pretty difficult not to get lost in the “awe” of it all during your visit. Also, the tour company packed an amazing snack box and provided comfy, festive blankies for when it gets nice and chilly at the Canyon.

  3. Disneyland in LA
    My first visit to Disney was as an adult, and I cried from accidental joy. Also, try the churros.
  4. Do everything in Phoenix!
    I love Phoenix, AZ. Like truly love it. The long highways and the tall palm trees are music to my soul. It’s home to the BEST BBQ joint in the universe (no exaggerations here) and huevos rancheros that will make your mouth taste like heaven. If you want to go to Phoenix, we need to CHAT.

A recent survey conducted by Sandals found that more people are looking to travel alone. Solo travel has been a bit of a gap in the market and more companies will be serving to this demographic. However, NCL got here first. NCL has Singles cruises for those looking for a captain…of their heart. With cool lounges and activities, it is easier to meet people than ever. The rooms range from studios, like the one above (let’s face, it’s still bigger than my apartment in Vancouver) to penthouses. And where is this ship going? Only the most romantic places, of course: Spain, Italy, Portugal, England, and more! If you want to learn more about this cruise, email me at cate.ciu@flightcentre.ca

Dreamcateon: India – Darjeeling Limited

Has a movie ever ignited your wanderlust? I certainly always want to go where Wes Anderson and his imagination reside. The first Wes movie I have ever seen though was Darjeeling Limited..and it was love at first sight. In part due to that movie, one of my dream destinations is India. The colors, the flowers, the chai, and the food, and the culture, of course, are so enticing!
