We Make YOUR Travel Plans EASY
give thanks - Thanksgiving concept - words in white chalk on a blackboard surrounded by pumpkins
As we approach my favorite holiday I realize that I have so much to be thankful and grateful for despite the crazy year we are all experiencing.

My family and friends have remained healthy, I have improved my well being by swimming almost every day, I have read many great books and I am getting involved in a few new and exciting projects. I am looking forward to the vaccine being available very soon so we can all resume "business as usual".

I am very thankful for each and every one of you who has allowed me to help plan your vacations and I am grateful for the many friendships that have developed over the years. Steve and I wish everyone a Happy and safe Thanksgiving. Our celebrations may look and feel a little different this year but we can look forward to 2021 when we will once again gather with loved ones.

The VACCINE is Coming

We are all very anxious for a vaccine to protect us against Corona Virus to become available. It looks like this will happen in the very near future with seniors and those with pre-existing conditions among the first to receive it. I am ready and in line! I know many of you will consider travel once you have been vaccinated and we are here to help.


I have read many books about people who have overcome adversity and have had life altering events turn their world upside down in an instant. However, I never knew the main character before. Jim and Janet are clients who, over the years, have become friends. I've done individual cruises for them and they have joined our groups as well. Many of you have traveled with them to the Caribbean and Alaska. Jim wrote his story recently and it is incredible. Even though I was aware of some of the things Jim endured, seeing it in detail on the written page was totally different. Certain chapters made my heart hurt and made me so sad. I highly recommend this book to all of you. I'm so thankful that Jim and Janet are my friends and that I know Jim. He certainly is a man of courage but, most importantly, he's just a great guy who had a stoke of bad luck but didn't let that get in his way to having a great life.

I got a very favorable response last month from posting my "Pandemic Reading List" and the books I've read since March. Books below in red are my newest reads. I truly love escaping into the pages and lives of the characters.

Fly Away Home by Jennifer Weiner
Cooking For Picasso by Camille Aubrey
Educated by Tara Westover
Summer of 69 by Elin Hilderbrand
Big Summer by Jennifer Weiner
A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles
Florence Adler Swims Forever by Rachel Beanland
American Dirt by Jeanine Cummins
An Unorthodox Match by Naomi Ragen
Beneath A Scarlett Sky by Mark Sullivan
The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah
Eli's Promise by Ronald Balson
Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingate ( One of my favorites!)
Where The Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens
The Last Tackle by James Wallgren (read review above)

Some of these are easy reading (Chick Lit) but some are fairly intense. Enjoyed every one of these books. Reading is a great escape to another time and place which I think we can all use a little of right now.
My next book is The Vanishing Half by Brit Bennett.

Thanks to all of you who responded to my email asking for your wish list if you were building an accessible beach house. I was blown away by the number of responses I received. I will tell you that this house will become a reality but you all need to be patient as it will take a while to be ready. The house will be a vacation rental and will include just about everything that you have requested. A few items are a little more difficult to incorporate but we are working on possible solutions. This is NOT my house but I will keep you posted on progress and when it becomes available. When I am at liberty to divulge more details, I will let you know so stay tuned.
We Do Individual & Group Travel
Do you know that we actually plan more trips for individuals than we do for our groups? We love when you participate in our groups but please remember to call us when you want to plan a vacation for the two of you or with a group of friends or family members. We can most likely plan any type of vacation you want and we will be sure to address all your accessibility requirements and needs. We so enjoy doing the research for you and look forward to planning that next trip just for you! Also, if you see one of our groups that you would like to do but perhaps the dates don't work, give us a call. We can usually duplicate the same trip just for you and your travel companions.
Need a Scooter?
We can help!
SNG has an online store where you can purchase masks, gloves, thermometers and other medical supplies.

Do you need to rent a scooter or other mobility equipment for your next cruise or land trip?
Be sure and let us know and we can make arrangements for you through Special Needs Group.

Standard and heavy duty scooters, wheelchairs, hospital beds, hoyer lifts, lift chairs, oxygen and more are all possibilities for you when you travel.
Abilities Expo Virtual 2 was this weekend and I thank all of you who attended my Travel Workshop. I will keep you posted about their future events.
