Let’s Talk Travel!

Dear Friends,

I was at it again–I spent nearly the entire day last Sunday planning for summer. Every year as it approaches there is both excitement and dread. The excitement part is clear–longer days, more relaxed schedules, vacation, more family time. But the dread part is in the logistics (which is ironic considering that one summer I interned as a hotel concierge at the Broadmoor).

If you get overwhelmed by trip planning and are trying to make the most of precious family time, call for back-up. I was overjoyed when I read this article about the resurgence of travel agents. They really have evolved and can be a great resource. In just one click and 10-minutes of my time, they were skillfully tackling three trips.

On the ground, hotel concierges love to be at your service–it’s their job and they are the local experts. I often give them a rough draft of our itinerary and lean on them heavily to fill in any holes. Happy travels!

With best wishes,

Julie Paul
