Incredible Journey Newsletter Issue 23
November 2006


This year has been very busy at Incredible Journey. We are growing and are pleased to announce a new addition to our team, Paula Mooney. Paula will be facilitating our operations and will soon join our Hawaii specialist team. Throughout the year, our agents have been attending destination specific seminars, cruising on a myriad of ships and visiting destinations both familiar and new to us.

This year Patricia, our Master Cruise Counselor, has sailed on Carnival, Princess and Holland America Cruise lines. In addition to her many voyages, Patricia also visited Jamaica, sponsored by Sandals (did you know she is our certified Sandals specialist?) traveled to Hawaii - specifically Kauai and Oahu, and will be spending almost three weeks revisiting six islands in Tahiti.

Vicki Sanders, one of our Hawaii specialists and an avid hiker and kayaker, has visited the islands numerous times. Most recently she attended an intensive educational week on Oahu sponsored by the Oahu Visitors Bureau and the American Society of Travel Agents - ASTA (this is quite an honor as they only select qualified agents to join these events).

Joyce Craddock, the CEO of Incredible Journey, has been quite busy as well this year. As well as completely updating our website, www.incrediblejourney.net, she traveled with Patricia to Kauai to view many of our privately owned homes, and met with the owners and managment companies of these homes. She also attended the Oahu Visitors Bureau and ASTA sponsored event on Oahu with Vicki Sanders. Joyce will be traveling with Patricia to Tahiti for three weeks in December (Joyce and Patricia are our Tiare specialists). Out of the norm for Joyce was her highly anticipated journey to Prague. Contact Joyce regarding her lively and thoroughly entertaining adventures to this remarkable city.

Happy Holidays from Incredible Journey - Joyce, Vicki, Patricia, and Paula

    Whale Watching Spectacular

    It is late in the year and soon all eyes in Hawaii will be on the lookout for the telltale signs that the humpback whales have returned. December marks that beginning of whale season and the humpbacks will be there by the thousands. Each December they migrate 3,000 miles from their summer home in Alaska to court, mate, and give birth in the region’s warm waters.

    Ask Endora

    Dear Endora,

    I am interested in package prices for a trip to Hawaii. I am getting married in January and we have talked about a honeymoon there. We are on a budget and don't know how much it would cost to go.

    Thank you for your time.

    Places to See Before They Vanish...

    In this series I have talked about global warming and that it is a fact not a myth, whether caused by natural phenomenon or aided by man's industrialism we are all experiencing the effects of it today. I have reported that many people and organizations worldwide are giving back to communities and heritage sites in ways that will have a profound effect on the environment. This article notes destinations and sites that are now endangered.

    It doesn't mean that the sites will be lost forever because the World Monument Fund and UNESCO are working tirelessly to preserve the world's heritage and their success rate is quite high, at over 75%.
