Travel or bust!

We all love to travel and take vacations. However, the average American doesn’t schedule a vacation every year to get away and get revitalized and rejuvenated. Why? Are we so caught up in staying connected that we forget that we need to take time out for ourselves? We need to spend some playtime bonding with our children. We need to get away with our gal pals and our guy pals and bask in our comradery. We need to go on a romantic getaway with our significant other so we can frolic in our coupledom. We need to check in with unadorned nature and smell the roses, listen to the birds sing and .... briiiiling…brriiiliiinng…that was a text message alert…just a minute....need to text back. Ok, so where was I?

So where can we go with the kids on vacation this year? Let’s see…how about?

Purchasing a Three, Four or Five Day Magic Your Way Ticket + Park Hopper® and get two days free!
Disney's theme parks include: the Magic Kingdom® Park, Epcot®, Disney's Hollywood Studios™, and Disney's Animal Kingdom® Theme Park. The Magic Your Way Base Ticket includes admission to one Walt Disney World® Theme Park for each day of your ticket. You can also choose to purchase the Park Hopper® Option that gives you the flexibility to come and go as you please through all four theme parks, and/or the No Expiration Option, where your unused days never expire. Select the Water Park Fun & More Option and visit Disney's Blizzard Beach Water Park, Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.

With more places to go, more things to see and more Disney Characters to meet, there's never been a better time to make the dream come true at the Walt Disney World® Resort. Enjoy a week-long vacation experience highlighted by four not-to-be-missed Theme Parks, each with a unique version of Disney magic. Discover a world of entertainment and family fun that knows no boundaries. Choose from 23 imaginative Resorts and explore endless world-class shopping, dining and recreation.

Or maybe…..Mom and Dad can take the kids to see The Wiggles concert. The Wiggles have been entertaining children for years with song and dance on the Disney Channel; now see Anthony, Jeff, and Murray perform LIVE! The stars of TV, video, and music are taking their show on the road. This show is perfect for the whole family.

Now let’s take a romantic cruise with your spouse to Tahiti….Here’s one of the stops aboard The Princess Cruise:

Bora Bora is the most magical of all the French Polynesian islands. The main island of Bora Bora, home to 4,225 inhabitants, is in the center of a multicoloured lagoon, surrounded by offshore motu islets inside a protective coral necklace. The motu islets of Bora Bora are the ideal location for a Bora Bora honeymoon. Bora Bora has numerous luxury hotels and resorts, Hotel Bora Bora was the first Hotel in French Polynesia to build over water bungalows. No matter what kind of vacation you are planning, Bora Bora is a must when visiting French Polynesia. There is only one navigable pass, facing the principal village of Vaitape. A 29 km (18 miles) partially sealed road circles the Bora Bora, passing through colorful villages, archaeological sites, old Army bunkers and cannons left over from World War II. Bora Bora lies 240 Km (150 miles) northwest of Tahiti in the Leeward Society Islands. Matira beach has white sand and warm, shallow water. Bora Bora's lagoon is world-famous for its beauty.

Or how about getting away to St Johns in Antigua and relaxing at Cocobay Resort. Cocobay's exclusive getaway on the sunset side of Antigua offers many unique experiences for even the most discerning traveler providing a blissful atmosphere among gingerbread fretwork, endless sandy beaches, and plantation-style Caribbean chic.

Ok, so now let’s relax with our gal pals friends at a “Spa vacation.” You can go to spa resorts all over the world. Let’s check this resort in St. Lucia:
The Jalousie Plantation, where heaven meets earth. Nestled in 192 acres of magnificent rainforest and sweeping majestically down to sea, this hotel is without question located in one of the most awe-inspiring locations in the world, the majestic valley of The Pitons.

This hotel experience caters for all. As well as all land and watersports including unsurpassed scuba diving, you can pamper yourself in The Jalousie Spa and experience the local foods and delicacies in the fine restaurants and bars. All children are welcome and we have a wide range of activities that will keep them occupied and ensure that they, and you, have the holiday experience of a lifetime.
Or venture off to Italy to experience the ultimate spa escape at:

Grotta Giusti Spa & Golf Hotel Surrounded by a quiet park, in what was once a 19th century villa with frescoed rooms and spacious open areas, the Grotta Giusti Terme Spa & Golf Hotel offers a pleasant stay in a comfortable, refined setting in the Tuscan Hills. Possibly one of the most unique spa vacation locales in Italy, the thermal water of the Grotta Giusti natural springs offer a variety of therapies to soothe joints, muscles and nerves.

Well now what kind of adventure can we muster up for our guy pals. How about a fishing expedition? No, that’s not the deliverance music theme playing in your head. Let’s venture off to:

Ontario, Cananda; For this 7-day fully guided fishing trip. When booking a trip with this venue you will be given the option of which type of trip you are interested in. We have tailor-made packages-depending on the type of fish you are interested in.

Your amazing trip would start at the water docks of Chapleau; once entering the Beaver aircraft, you will immediately start to feel the peace and comfort of what Northern Ontario has to offer. You will fly at 500 feet, at this cruising altitude you will have a chance to spot many of the native wildlife. It is a truly amazing sight: with bear and moose running through the forests and wetlands. Don't forget to bring your camera! Once landing on our private lake, take your time and see what’s around.

You have two different packages you can choose from when fishing out of West Abinette; a full-guided tour; which covers your home-cooked meals, housekeeping, guiding and fish cleaning services. The second option would be a self-guided tour; in which you would be responsible for your own food, housekeeping and fish cleaning. You are provided with boats and motors for your party. Note: you must bring your own fishing gear.

Or you and your buddies can go to Costa Rica for an Indian Jones-type adventure to explore one of the most active volcanos in the world and then go deep into the cloudforests of Costa Rica to run the Narajo River and ride a giant zipline. Visit the most beautiful National Parks of Central America. It is definitely a trip of a lifetime. Book this and all these vacations and more with MarLee Travel at .

Ok folks…need a different pace. Well guys and dolls, let’s head over to New York City and take in some lights, dinner and a show:

Take this three-hour harbor cruise with dinner that is the ultimate New York indulgence. A sister ship of Bateaux in London and Paris, Bateaux New York's Celestial offers fine food, sophisticated music, and unparalleled views of the world's most magnificent skyline through its unique curved glass walls and ceiling. Fresh flowers, fine china, and linen-draped tables are just a few of the elegant touches. This exquisite mix of magnificent views, sophisticated cuisine, international wines, jazz and pop trios, and vocalist make Bateaux New York an unforgettable New York experience.
Set in Baltimore in 1962, Hairspray! is the story of plain-Jane Tracy Turnblad who dances her way onto TV's most popular show. A big girl with big hair and an even bigger heart, she has only one passion--to dance. After an appearance on "The Corny Collins Show," she is transformed from outsider to irrepressible teen celebrity. But can a trendsetter in dance and fashion vanquish the program's reigning princess, win the heart of heartthrob Link Larkin, and integrate a television show without denting her 'do? Only in Hairspray!

Well gotta go…my cellphone is ringing and I have 300 emails to answer before dinner. Now go ahead and book that vacation. At MarLee Travel you can book all your travel & entertainment at
