What Invisible Thread Says About Travel

Someone asked me last night at the Opening Night party for Invisible Thread why Zenbiz Travel was so attached to this musical? I told them that the message was in the music. The story talks about a young mans journey to Uganda to volunteer for a few weeks. What he found was that people need help and he decided to leave behind the comforts of home to help teach young people who could not afford to go to school. At Zenbiz Travel we have always encouraged our guests while on vacation to seek out volunteer opportunities. It could be a simple as bringing pencils and notebooks to kids in a school or donating time or money to an orphanage or a shelter. There is always someway to help. People always talk about how selfish the “Millennials” are.  Well Invisible Thread is a roadmap on what two people can do.

The show is amazing. Great production, Story, Acting and Music.  If you don’t see another musical/play go see this play and bring some young people with you.  Just for reading this post I am going to share a special discount code for you courtesy of our friends at Walker Communications Group who does an amazing job of marketing and audience development to our community.  www.2st.com code: WICG

When our cast traveled to Uganda, they took a Ugandan dance lesson from the students at the Ashinaga rainbow house. They taught us how to move our hips. We taught them how to whip and nae nae. #InvisibleThread

Untitled 2
Wishing you and your family the very best holiday ever.

We remember waking up to the delicious smells coming from the kitchen.  Turkey, Ham, Mac & Cheese, String Beans, Pies and more.  We often felt guilty to have so much and others so little.

What we regret most is that we didn’t travel often on family vacations.  We did have a two week stint in Atlantic City every year but for the most part we stayed at home as a family.  At Zenbiz Travel, as we book travel for our clients, many of who have become a part of the Zenbiz family we realize the importance of having family memories from travel experiences.  No matter where you are together in any part of the world what matters most is the good times and memories.  Today traveling together is easier than ever.  The key is to plan ahead.

Travel Memories stay with you forever.  We encourage you all to discuss, over these upcoming celebratory weeks, a family & friends getaway/reunion just for fun.  It can be hard work but in the end it will be well worth it.  Zenbiz Travel will help coordinate everything for you.

Here are some options to choose from:
  • Rent a villa – There are beautiful villas all over the world.  They can range from a two bedroom bungalow to a 18 bedroom estate in the hills of Tuscany.

  • Plan a cruise – Probably the easiest way to plan a family/friends vacation.  Little risk as far as deposits and payments and no worries about cooking, cleaning or entertainment. Cruises are priced to accommodate a large range of budgets and people.

  • All-Inclusive – Another easy way to bring families together.  They offer many of the same benefits as group cruises however you will stay in one location.

  • Staycations – Explore America.  Pick a location where you call can be together and host events to be remembered.

The Fastest Way Through Customs Is With Your Phone

What if we told you there is a way (a completely free way) to bypass the lines at immigration and customs when re-entering the U.S. at select airports—and all you needed was your smartphone?

The secret is no secret at all, but a downloadable app available to both iPhone and Android users via theApple App Store and Google Play Store that allows users to enter their passport and travel information, submit it electronically, and generate a receipt to show at customs and immigration checkpoints. It’s calledMobile Passport and its technology eliminates the need for traditional forms and line waits. The catch is…there is no catch. The app, launched in 2014 by Airside Mobile and Airports Council International-North America (ACI-NA) in partnerships with Customs and Border Protection (CBP), is free to download and free to use. Entirely separate from the paid Global Entry program, Mobile Passport boasts a speed and ease that has Global Entry users eating its dust.  READ MORE

Magical Brazil – 2016

Category : Events

Feb. 19-20 Pre-Cruise
Cruise – 21 – 27, 2016
from Rio de Janeiro
Porting in Buzios, Salvador, Llheus & Rio De Janeiro Brazil
Until you have experience Brazil you have no idea what you are missing.  We will start out in the city that movies are made about, Rio de Janeiro where the people are beautiful, the music is emotional, the parties continue, the beaches are amazing and the food is tantalizing!  Spend a pre-cruise with us in Rio before we depart for the other amazing ports of call.  The Lirica ship offers a different type of cruise.  This is a European cruise line that does things a little differently.  Multiple languages are spoken on the ship and they consider it a Spanish emersion cruise.   Ready to explore a different cruising?  This will give you something to talk about.    Salvador is rich in cultural history.  The place where the slave children were left before the slave travels continued to the Americas.  When you think of Black Culture we can think of no other city outside of Africa that illustrates so much history.   Here is more info on Buzios & IIheus.  Remember your visa lasts for 10 years so you can go back again and again.  We are sure you will.

Fall is here. What are you going to do now?

Banner_WaltDisneyWorldIf you are like me a sort of depression comes at the end of the vacation.  I start thinking of all of the things that await at the other end of that plane ride or cruise dock.  A few years back I figured out a way that works for me.  As soon as I finish one trip I am thinking about where will I go next.  It gives me something to look forward too.

 

I try to book my vacations and group 6months to 12 months in FBHeadadvance.  Why?  It gives us more time to pay, better selection of cabins or accommodations, better prices on vacation and more time to get excited about our next trip.  If it is a couple or an individual the results might be slightly different.  You may get last minute sales but since we have noticed the increase in overall travel I am seeing that benefit less and less.

_98E0234Finally, the best way to save is to travel when school is in session.  Everything goes up when the youth are out of school.  By planning ahead you can sometimes talk to the school officials who would be more than open to a special project for enrichment.   Try it.  We know for a fact that children who travel have a better perspective on the world and see me achieve more.

So what are you doing now?  Remember to balance life with leisure.
