April 2018 News Letter

Hi <<First Name>>,

April is a month of stepping into the spring. The Daisy or the Sweet Pea is the flower for April.
April is named after the Goddess of love, Aphrodite. In the Roman calendar, the month April is spelled "Aprils" meaning,” to open”. April is the month when trees and flowers begin to bloom.
The Cherry blossoms in Washington D.C reach their peak from April 8th to the 12th.  Cherry blossoms are also enjoyed the first two weeks of April in Japan with celebrations, parties and festivities.  Allentown has their Cherry blossom festival April 28 at the Cedar Beach parkway from 10 a. m. to 5 P.M.

Bing Crosby sang "April in Portugal" on his 1961 Holiday in Europe album. "April Showers" and "April in Paris" are two more songs about April.

Last month I had a family of four (David, Allison and children) go to San Diego, CA to get a head start into spring. And guess what!?— the day they left, March 7, we had a snow storm. They had to leave from a different airport but they got there and had such a great time. They sent me some wonderful pictures, as you can see below.

On March 11th Mac and I accompanied a bus load of guests to the New York Pier for a VIP tour and lunch on the MSC Divina. We enjoyed a great fun filled day on the ship enjoying the crystal staircases, magnificent alternative restaurants, spa's, entertainment lounge, casino, and the food was outstanding! 

Have a happy and fun filled spring!
Kathy and Mac

Mac's Hot Travel Tips-

"Don't go hungry!!”
  1. Especially when flying, it's good to have energy bars or other wrapped/packed snack food items in case of delay. 
  2. Try to avoid carbonated sodas - and if you have an adult beverage, be sure to drink lots of water, too.  This will help you avoid retaining excess water.
  3. Bring your own water thermos (empty) and you can fill it up after going through security checkpoint at the airport. 
  4. When at the airport, try to find healthy restaurants instead of the fast food chain restaurants.
