May 2019 Newsletter
Hi <<First Name>>,
The beautiful spring colors of May! The greens, purples and yellows. For many, May is a significant beginning of life events. Such as relationships, marriage, births, graduations. I think of my clients as a relationship-- from the first time they call me to plan for that amazing trip and the best experience possible! I make it a priority to provide value, and great service. My clients get the best care possible. From the time we start planning to the time they come home. I think of my clients as comparable to raising a child-- you want the best for them and the best experience. I am dependable and consistent. Clients love to have everything handled for them and that's we do! We plan group or individual travel arrangements and specialize in tailoring a trip that suits each individual client.

Mac's Hot Safety Travel Tips
Mac’s Tips- Donald "Mac" MacConnell, is a retired police Chief, has served with the PA State Police and was an MP for the Army, is a graduate of the FBI Academy.
Mac has learned a few things through his experience with law enforcement and graciously shares them with our subscribers for their safety.
> Ask a neighbor or friend to check on your house while you're away.
> Make sure to have mail and newspapers stopped or taken in by a friend or neighbor.
> If you've asked the local police department to check on your house, be advised that they will do so as "time permits". Don't expect that they will be driving by hour home every hour. It's always best to have someone you trust to check on your house daily, if possible.
What a pain in the neck!
My physical therapist from Priority Physical Therapy, Allison Brewer, has some great tips on protecting your body from travel injuries. Here are a few she shared with me:
When sightseeing, give your neck a rest. Looking up for a prolonged period of time can lead to a stiff neck. Make sure to look up and back down to give those muscles a rest.

Why use KathyMac’s Travel services to plan your dream vacation instead of booking the trip on your own?
The internet is a wonderful, useful tool to book your own trip. In some cases, you may find great deals, and it is tempting to grab the best price for your vacation. However, those prices don’t always include fees, taxes and other service charges. Nor do they give you assistance on traveling to and from airports, or have a contact should you have an issue during your trip. You are on your own. If you’re traveling to a foreign country, this can be very scary and possibly dangerous.

You have the peace of mind that you and your family have someone to take care of any issues that might arise during your trip.
