San Diego, California is one of my favorite destinations to visit in the United States and I can’t wait to go back each time I come home. It is a place where the beaches are beautiful, the city is fun and it has the perfect variety for adults and kids alike. The locals are also friendly and laid back, so anyone can fit right in! Here are some of the must-sees when visiting this wonderful city.
“Cruising on the Danube can be as exhilarating as biking alongside the river to exploring the fairy tale towns across the border of Austria. Shop for river rock jewelry or do a wine tasting before 10 in the morning. Perhaps you are interested in a concert in Vienna or walking in the steps of the Sound of Music. An Eastern Europe river cruise has something for you,” — Teresa Sawejka, vacation travel consultant, Fox World Travel
If the topic of travel and expense management conjures up images of piles of time-consuming, headache-inducing paperwork, crumpled receipts, confusing spreadsheets and maybe a clunky app, you’re not alone. In fact, according to Global Business Travel Association (GBTA), travelers list expense reporting among the top three frustrations of the travel process. As travel managers and companies strive to reduce traveler friction, bolster employee retention rates and keep control of business travel expenses, the situation is primed for vast improvements. And here’s the good news: business travel experts say technology is at last catching up and helping make business travel expenses easier to manage than ever before.
Local Living with G Adventures – Experiential Travel at Its finest
by Denise Pedersen
Imagine waking up in the morning to the sun peering in your window and hearing the roosters crowing in the morning; The view outside your window is the Adriatic Sea in the distance. That is how my day started every day in the Lovorno Villa – called “Agriturizm Kameni Dvori.”
Astounding nature, northern lights, Vikings and Nordic culture intertwine with modern design, green cities and world-renowned gastronomy in Scandinavia.
Inviting cities, good design, happiness, sustainable living, good food, biking, nature—these are all words binding Denmark, Finland and Sweden together. The cultural experiences in Scandinavia are two-fold; the feeling of being in the culture of the happiest region in the world and the exploration of some of the best cultural institutions in the world; from the Abba Museum and Royal Danish Castles to the Santa Claus’ Office in Finnish Lapland.

Introducing Celebrity FloraSM
Celebrity Cruises introduces Celebrity FloraSM, the first ship of its kind, designed specifically with the destination in mind—the Galapagos Islands. In its creation, we followed in the footsteps of our revolutionary new ship, Celebrity EdgeSM, by designing Celebrity Flora in 3-D. This advanced technology lets us experience every space on board in virtual reality to fine-tune every detail of the design before she’s even built. This process allows us to create the most state-of-the-art ship to ever sail the Galapagos Islands.
Celebrity Flora marks an evolutionary turning point in the approach to ship design by allowing the destination and its environment to inspire and influence every decision made. From the luxurious all-suites accommodations that incorporate sustainable, natural materials that complement the destination to the Dynamic Positioning System that enables the ship to stay on station without the use of anchors to help protect the seas, we’ve created a ship that truly differentiates between visiting this incredible corner of the world and experiencing it.
Elizabeth Cramer finds inspiration in discovering the world—whether that be in her backyard in Wisconsin or across the globe tour managing a Fox World Travel group vacation.
Cramer has tour managed for Fox World Travel for three years, showing travelers the beauty of locations like Italy and Hawaii. Her favorite part of tour managing is watching guests experience amazing sights and cultures. “Seeing their excitement and curiosity is so rewarding,” said Cramer.
Cramer’s experience tour managing allowed her to add a new adventure to her career—host of Outdoor Wisconsin on PBS. With Outdoor Wisconsin, she will bring local Wisconsin adventure into people’s living rooms.
The opportunity came along last summer when she connected with PBS and shared her extensive work in travel, including the photography, videos and social media she has created along the way.
“I love the outdoors and I love people,” said Cramer. “I was beyond thrilled when they offered me a shot on Outdoor Wisconsin!”
Although the experiences will be a bit different, they share similarities. She hopes people will feel the same inspiration she does.
Cramer debuts on PBS Outdoor Wisconsin on Feb. 22, 2018.
Currently, she is directing a Fox tour in Hawaii.
