I Live For Life’s Moments

Blog, EJtheTravelDiva Blog, Travel Learning Lessons
I believe that life is about moments in time.  I live for those moments, in life, that are out of my everyday routine.  What better way to experience those special moments than through travel?  Traveling to me, is about unique experiences in different places.  That is what makes up a great vacation, to me. I recently was able to have one of those moments while traveling to Mexico in November 2011.  During my visit at El Dorado Seaside Suites, I was treated like a VIP guest.  At this adult-only boutique resort, everyone is a VIP guest.  I got to see, first hand, why the call it a Gourmet Inclusive┬« vacation experience. When I arrived at the entrance of El Dorado Seaside Suites, I was greated with a spectacular welcoming.  First…

Savannah, GA: Southern Charm

Blog, Destination Reviews, EJtheTravelDiva Blog
As I was making way down south for a travel seminar, I decided to take one day and stop in Savannah, Georgia to get a sample of a city that I have heard so much about. I thought to myself, I will look around, pick a hotel, get a feel for the city to see if this is a destination worth learning about for my clients. As I am always striving to be an expert on many destinations so that I can provide great recommendations for all of my clients. My mother frequently visited Savannah and would tell me how much she loved the city and how it seemed as if there was a park on every corner. This September, I made a stop in a city that was listed…

Swimming with Dolphins

People who know me, know that I am a very adventurous person. When I vacation, I like to do things outside of the box, things I've never done before, and things that make me say, "Wow!"

Before leaving for my cruise, I booked my shore excursion call Swim with Dolphins Experience. This was something that I always wanted to do, I had the opportunity and I was not going to miss it. Once the cruise ship docked, I hoped in a cab and went to my WOW experience. Before getting in the water, I met with an…

Looking for Luxury at it's finest? If you are looking for luxury, relaxation, and a vacation that will wow you, Sandals Royal Bahamian is the vacation for you! I use the word, vacation, lightly because to me, it was more of an experience than a vacation. I walked into the hotel and was greeted with a warm smile, class, and a glass of champagne--first class check in. I was already impressed before I got to my room. I did not have to worry about any luggage. My bags were in my room by the time I reached my room. It took me sometime to get to my room because I had to stop and take in the view. The view was even better from my room, as I opened my…

Ensenada, Mexico

Blog, Destination Reviews, EJtheTravelDiva Blog
Erica James decided to experience one of the "fun ships" of Carnival Cruise. On October 16, 2009 Erica James departed Nashville, Tennessee to Long Beach, California where she would board Carnival Paradise. After being dropped off at the port, Carnival Cruise Lines had a very easy, smooth, and fast check-in process. As soon as I got out of the car, I walked over to luggage tag, tagged my luggage with my room number on it. A Carnival Cruise employee put my luggage on a cart and I headed for check in. Due to completing all my information on-line, all I had to do was sign a few papers, get my room key, and head straight to board Carnival Paradise. On the first night, we went to the formal dinner. Excellent…

Crusing The Caribbean Seas

Blog, Cruising, EJtheTravelDiva Blog
Saturday, September 20, 2008 Today was an exciting day. We (My 2 sisters and myself) hopped a plan to Orlando, FL because we are taking a 7-day cruise beginning tomorrow through the Caribbean. After we touched down in Orlando, FL, we took a taxi ($100) to Port Canaveral, FL to our hotel, The Sheraton. The taxi drive was long and expensive. We know next time to pay, in advance for the cruise line shuttle services that they have to and from the ship. Nevertheless, we checked into our hotel and we are going to relax and get a good night sleep because we set sail tomorrow. I will chat with you all later. Sunday, September 21, 2008 It is a beautiful day in Port Canaveral, FL. We woke up this…
