Let's go somewhere amazing together!

Travelers commit to the WOW Vows helping to ensure
that every trip is exceptional from start to finish

  1. I vow to travel with my sense of wonder and my sense of humor.
  2. I vow to be a gracious guest and leave a place at least as good as I found it.
  3. I vow to be a respectful traveler – thoughtful of the people and places I visit and considerate of the people with whom I travel.
  4. I vow to be on time, or will catch up to the group at my own expense.
  5. I vow to rotate the front seat on the motorcoach.
  6. I vow to communicate any complaints to the tour leader privately. (i.e., I will not whine!)
  7. I understand that travel requires patience, a positive attitude an an ability to laugh. If I can’t relax and enjoy the journey, I vow to stay home!!

I was definitely ready to come home but I am smiling thinking about the trip. Marilyn, you did an amazing job. You have a huge heart, you seem to accomplish the impossible and you do so with a sense of humor and boundless curiosity.”

And the Winners are ………

  One of my end-of-year rituals is the creation of a photo book entitled:  Scott & Marilyn, Our Year in Pictures.   Every year, I scramble to get it published, printed and delivered before Scott’s birthday on January 9.  Every free moment around the holiday time, I park myself in front of the fireplace, sorting […]
