Packing the Perfect Suitcase

Tips for Packing the Perfect Suitcase

Are you looking for tips for packing the perfect suitcase for your next vacation?  Below is a list of packing tips I use every time I travel.

First, be sure that you carry on any essential items that you may need immediately.  When packing, think about the items that you could not “live without” if your suitcase was lost, such as prescription medication, a swimsuit, a coverup that could also be worn as an outfit, flip flops, etc. You will want to put these items in your carry-on bag.

Why Use Good Travel Agent? Destination Fun Agents

Why Use a Good Travel Agent?

Why Use a Travel Agent?

I often get asked that question, and I love to visit with people about the importance of using a travel agent.

First, a good travel agent really doesn’t sell anything, but rather they help you buy wisely.  Travel agents save you time, can save you money, and provide insights on the travel logistics of your trip.  Travel agents have access to numerous travel partners and suppliers.  Not only do travel agents have competitive prices, but they also have expertise as they book travel all day every day.  They know the tricks and traps, and they are continually training in the ever so changing world of travel.  Travel agents are connected to the wholesalers, resorts, cruise lines, etc., and they know the ins and outs.  They know which travel suppliers to use and which to avoid.  A good travel agent welcomes clients to do their own research and come to them with questions.  They may agree with their choices, or they may make suggestions and offer advice and guidance to enhance the clients travel experiences.  Many travel agents are specialized in a particular area or destination and know that area inside and out.

Mobile Pass App Icon

Mobile Pass App

The Mobile Pass app is a wonderful tool to use to help you breeze through US Customs and Border Protection.  The app is officially authorized by the US Customs and Border Protection, and it can be used now at some international airports and cruise ports upon re-entry into the United States.

Not all international airports and cruise ports have started this new program, but it is such a wonderful process for those that have it in place.  Availability at additional airports and cruise ports will follow.

You will download the app through iTunes or Google Play and set up a password protected profile with your passport information, and you can use your profile for future trips as well.  Once you arrive at your destination and have answered the CBP inspection questions, you will click “Submit Now” that you are “Ready to Enter the USA.”  Then, follow the signs to the “Mobile Passport Control Line” and you will zip through!

I would highly recommend using this wonderful new app and process and look forward to welcoming this to more airports and cruise ports in the future.

Safe and Happy Travels,

Dinner in Eiffel Tower Paris France

When traveling to Paris France, don’t miss out on the lifetime opportunity of having dinner in the Eiffel Tower at the 58 Tour Eiffel Restaurant.  My family of 5 took the elevator up to enjoy a magnificent dinner with the stunning view overlooking Paris.  My boys thought the entire evening was a once in a lifetime experience.  The food was beautifully presented and tasted exquisite.  I would highly recommend this and be sure to book in advance as it does sell out quickly!

My Trip to Punta Cana

This was an amazing photo of view upon arrival at the adults only Iberostar Grand in Punta Cana! There is a boat on the right of this photo that has a disco below and they perform occasional shows on it as well! This was a stunning property!

Enjoy some morning waves with your coffee from Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic. This video was taken at the beautiful Excellence Punta Cana, which is an adults only resort. It is voted as one of the most “romantic” resorts. This resort is a popular spot for clients of Destination Fun Travel.

Enjoy this short video with your morning coffee.

We experienced some great countryside and culture in Punta Cana with some phenomenal excursions. Here is a sneak peak from Monkeyland.

I am enjoying the Punta Cana Airport’s optional VIP service lounge! One can purchase this one way or round trip. This service will bypass most of the long check in lines and TSA lines for the return flight. Plus there is a lounge with complimentary beverages, comfortable seating and wifi to enjoy while waiting for the flight to board! Many clients have enjoyed this service and I’m glad to experience it as well! The only thing missing is my Destination Fun Travel coozie!
