SHIRLEY4TRAVEL CHRISTMAS GREETINGS
2013 started out slow but gathered lots of steam by the end of the year! The Hudson family enjoyed our annual trout fishing trip to The Little Red River in Heber Springs, Arkansas. Fishing was great and a good time was had by all. This trip has become something we all look forward to, especially our grandchildren.
We welcomed a new grandson into our family, Lane Browning Hudson. Our grandchildren, Blake, Sophia and Lane bring us so much joy.
I continue to grow my travel business,Shirley4Travel Agency. I planned and booked an August cruise to the Baltic’s for a group of 11 people, including myself and good friend Nola. We cruised to ports in Helsinki, Finland; Gothenburg, Sweden; Copenhagen, Denmark; St.Petersburg, Russia; Stockholm, Sweden and Tallinn, Estonia. A great time was had by all.
In September, two ladies were able to mark Poland off their bucket list with the help of Shirley4Travel.
Coming up in May 2014 is an Alaskan cruise with 9 people. We will be cruising to Juneau, Skagway, Glacier Bay and Ketchikan,Alaska with a stop in Victoria, British Columbia.
In the fall of 2015 a Mediterranean cruise is in the works. If you have ever wanted to cruise the Mediterranean, this is your chance! Royal Caribbean and Princess cruise lines both have brand new ships debuting in 2015. When the Mediterranean itineraries for these ships are released, let the planning begin!
I will keep you posted!
I have completed the first portion of the CLIA Accredited Cruise Counselor certification and have booked 6 of the 25 cabins required for this certification. In addition, I have completed certification as a Special Needs Travel planner.
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a safe and blessed New Year. 2014 is going to be an awesome adventure. Traveling grace.
