A couple of weeks ago we travelled with our family to Jamaica from Houston. Being a parent I over pack and over think. My 14 yr old son Connor loves the color orange. It is just about ridiculous. So the time came to lay out clothes for our early morning flight, he had all orange clothes set out (notice I was able to switch out the shorts.) I am talking head to toe! It was late and not worth the argument.
We arrive the IAH airport and the lines are long, people are everywhere. Multiple check in lines forced us to “divide and conqueror.” Here we go, we will NOT miss this flight.
I lost Martin (hubby) and I lost Payton (17 yr old daughter). In record time, they were missing. But not my sweet little “Connor Mon” decked out in full orange. He was easy to find and always where we needed him to be. My theory on the “Road Worker Orange,” has changed.
It reminded me of a family that had gone to Disney World with us several years ago. They all wore Lime green shirts the entire time. We did not have to look hard to find them. Just look for a cluster of lime green and there they were!
Think about this post the next time you plan to travel to heavily populated areas. Pick a color that is easily seen or everyone wear close to the same color. People may look at you funny when you are all together but guess what? You are ALL together. Not frantically searching for each other. Airports can be weird and stressful. Kids with phones look down and never know where you have gone. While they are aimlessly walking thru an airport, you are frantic! Not a good way to start or end a vacation.
I have been to many resorts and felt the warmth of the island people and locals. I just got back from Beaches Turks and Caicos. All I can say is WOW! The pristine beaches were some of the best I have ever seen.
Sandals and Beaches resorts owner Butch Stewart values the Travel Agents. I don’t know of any other resort that would Charter flights for 3 days to make sure the agents know what they are selling to their clients. I was with 140 other agents getting first hand knowledge of these wonderful resorts. We were on 1 of 9 of these chartered flights from all over the US. Mr. Stewart has educates Travel Agents far more than any webinar or workshop ever could. He spends $80M dollars a year on advertising and at the bottom says, “Call your Travel Agent.” So my question to you is… If you have never used a Travel Agent, what is holding you back? My expert advise is waiting for you. And know that advise doesn’t come with a price! 🙂
I have heard people say that Beaches is for kids. We spoke with several couples who were there on their honeymoon and they were very impressed with the inclusion and service. I have to say, my “husband, man child” was with me and he had a total blast! Don’t count the Beaches Turks and Caicos out if you are looking for a couples getaway. A destination wedding at this resort would make everyone happy!
