White folks should not dance :)

We sailed on the 26th Nov for Lifou, Noumea and the Isle of Pines on the Celebrity Solstice for a December 4th return.

We’re quite fortunate in that we live very close to Manly Wharf and our journey began by ferry the early afternoon of the 26th. Read More

Nicaragua

Tucked in between Honduras and Costa Rica we find Nicaragua, a country generally known only for the war between the Sandonistas and Contra’s. That all ended in 1987 and Nicaragua is now one of the safest countries in Central America. It is still not a major tourist destination, but ask anybody who is a keen surfer and they will immediately tell you
that Nicaragua has the best surf in the world because of the off-shore winds.

– Abu Dhabi –

Business

In the Traceyweek (28 OCT – 02 NOV) I was given the opportunity to travel to Abu Dhabi with 9 agents to experience the UAE culture along with participating in a number of activities.

Travelling with Etihad on the A380 direct to and from Sydney to Abu Dhabi on overnight flights, I was able to experience both Business and Economy Class.

Sydney to Abu Dhabi was in Business Class – this is a beautiful product with your own space and a full flatbed. As this was an overnight flight I was able to get a good 6 hours sleep. Also with an 18” TV Screen and over 700hours on entertainment I was definitely set for the 14hour flight. The Business Class crew was amazing went over and above for all passengers and definitely made me feel special.

Abu Dhabi – Sydney was in Economy Class – Also a great product with reclinable comfortable seats with plenty of space for a long haul flight. Read More

Canada’s Entry Requirement Changes

On March 15, 2016, Canada introduced a new entry requirement, known as an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA), for visa-exempt foreign nationals traveling to or through Canada by air. This new requirement is mandatory from March 15, 2016 and travelers will need an eTA before they can board their flight to Canada. Exceptions include U.S. citizens and travelers with a valid visa.
A passport, a credit card, and email address are necessary to apply.

Quick eTA facts:
• Costs $7.00 Canadian
• Valid for five years or until a passport expires, whichever comes first
• Electronically links the passport used for travel
• Allows for multiple entries to Canada
