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!!

Cynthia Cohen

So This Is What It’s Like To Be a Tourist?

I almost never take a journey that doesn’t have some business components like meetings with suppliers, site inspections of hotels, restaurants, venues, etc. Most of my travels are ridiculously well-planned. I’ve researched […]

The Continuing Adventures of Favorite Aunt Marilyn

Last year at this time, I posted a blog about entertaining my two nieces from Michigan who were visiting their Favorite Aunt Marilyn (that’s me). This time, it’s a visit from another niece, Seiko, from Japan. My younger brother, Ron, moved to Shikoku Island, Japan in 1991 to teach English for a year. He’s still there! […]
