One of the increasing trends we
are seeing in today’s travel scene is the changes in spending patterns in
parents with young children. This article presents the case for increased
catering for children in luxury resorts and five and six star accommodation.
With shifting patterns of wealth,
demographics and social structure, we see a change in the holiday patterns of
young hip parents with little kids. No longer content with the standard
everyday budget motels and caravan parks their parents, the baby boomers, the
not-so-young gen X urban elite are taking to the skies and the resorts in
style, and bringing the kids!
Children are now the fashionable
accessory for the new wealthy urban elite dominated by the internet media. As
family size shrinks, divorce rates soar, and women have babies later, vacation
time is a precious commodity. While maintaining an ongoing high profile career,
the demands of time pressure mean that families have less time to holiday together,
more cash, and subsequently demand better service, higher level of facilities
and real quality in their travels.
This is a trend which Hoteliers,
marketers, airlines would be very courageous to ignore. Mothers days lunches in
leading luxury hotels in major cities such as the Four Seasons in Sydney are
hosting a childcare package with DVDS, kids’ party food, biscuit decorating in
a posh room adjacent to the main dining area where parents can happily quaff
expensive French Champagne for hours and hours while the kids are entertained.
Cost to implement- practically nothing. Price for the adults… anything you
want to charge them, the more the better… and they will tell their friends.
This is a point where price does not actually matter. How much would you pay
for the privilege?
Time starved, exhausted,
multitasking supermoms are not asking, but demanding a …
With sweltering heat and high
triple digit temperatures in Phoenix, it’s the perfect time to head to up north
to get outdoors and experience Arizona’s beautiful and lush high mountain
forests and wilderness areas. For a wonderful and scenic day trip and easy
hike, take a journey to the top of Arizona by hiking the Kachina Trail, in the
Kachina Peaks Wilderness, Flagstaff, Arizona.
Located high up in the San
Francisco peaks, sits Arizona’s tallest peak, Mt. Humphreys which rises to an
elevation of 12, 643 feet which you can climb to the top of on the Mt.
Humphrey’s Trail, one of the most challenging hikes in all of Arizona. However,
if you’re up for more of an easier day hike instead, then I highly recommend
checking out the beautiful Kachina Trail, which is also located in the Kachina
Peaks Wilderness and like the Mt. Humphrey’s Trail, is also located at
Arizona’s Snow Bowl Ski Resort and if you’re up for the added adventure, you
can take a very scenic sky ride right up to the top of Arizona at elevation,
11,500 feet, for a spectacular and amazing panoramic view of all the
surrounding Flagstaff and Kachina Peaks Wilderness area, without having to
climb it yourself too!
To get to the Kachina Trail from
Phoenix you’ll want to head out of town on I-17 north to Flagstaff. We left
Phoenix at 9am on a Saturday morning and arrived in Flagstaff at around
11:30am. The drive from Phoenix to Flagstaff is roughly about 2.5 hours and 148
miles. Once you arrive in Flagstaff, the freeway ends and you will exit onto
89A north. Follow 89A through town till you come to route 180 north Snow Bowl
Ski Resort, then make a left. You’ll take route 180 for about another 30
I can’t wait for my
yearly vacation, I look forward to it all year long. Vacations have changed a
little over the years since I started my family, but one thing never changes; I
always go somewhere, even if the locations aren’t quite as exotic anymore.
When you choose a
vacation destination, you have several general choices. Do you go on a beach
type vacation? How about a National Park type vacation? There’s always the
theme park type vacation! And don’t forget the European vacation. Did I leave
Today I want to talk
about a beach type vacation, but it isn’t the same boring vacation you’ve
probably gone on a million times before.
When choosing a beach
vacation, most people stick to a few tried and true spots such as Florida, the
Bahamas, Hawaii, or Cancun; but if you’re looking for something a little out of
the ordinary, something that none of your friends have probably ever heard of
(let alone gone to) then Los Cabos may be exactly what you’re looking for.
First off, where
exactly is it? Los Cabos is in Mexico on the tip of the Baha Peninsula. It’s a
little bit South of Lapaz and sort of South-West of Tijuana.
I’m not sure there’s a
really “bad” time to go there, but the “best” times to go
are around January and February because you can often see gray whales near the
shore. Remember when I said it was a little less ordinary? You can’t beat whale
This is not just a
land of beautiful beaches (though there are amazing beaches!), there’s lots of
other fun things to do as well. There’s something for just about everyone, from
sport fishing and golf, to kayaking and diving. And don’t forget the whales!
Everyone can use a
vacation to relax, unwind, and have some fun. The problem with taking a
vacation is that many people have a difficult time coming up with the cash to
pay for the trip. Fortunately, there are ways to have an affordable vacation
and not go broke. One important way of getting a cheap vacation is picking the
best time to take the vacation. Below are a number of tips on picking the best
time for the perfect trip or vacation:
1. If you want to save
money on your flight ticket, it is important to consider the time when you want
to fly. The key is to be flexible when considering the time to fly, For
instance, do you want to fly during the peak season, off season, or weekend or
midweek? Prices will vary according to the time you pick to fly.
2. Peak season is the
most expensive time to fly so if you want to save money, book as early as
possible. Holidays are a very expensive time to book because there are few
discounts, promotions and deals. Plan well in advance to ensure you get a good
deal and a good seat.
3. Consider when and
where you want to travel. If you are willing to modify travel dates and
consider a travel destination that is much less expensive to visit, you will
save a lot of money. If you are planning a family reunion, consider planning
the event during shoulder season or the off season. As well, the summer and
fall are good times of the year to get a cheap international flight.
Reconsidering when and where you want to travel will amount to substantial
4. If warm tropical
destinations are your favorite places to travel, consider traveling during …

Tucked away, almost deleted, during my spam box this morning, would have been a very welcome virtual “Treasure of France.” An email coming from a family I spent an evening with more than recently. It was, like several of my “one nighter” filming encounters, 24 plus hours of genuine hospitality and friendship. A (to me, continuing) demonstration that “people can be kind.” And a realization by all, until this unexpected evening would, almost certainly, be described as a on one occasion event. Their mail ended with: “We wait to listen to more news of one’s (my italics)exciting life.”
