Placencia, Belize

Placencia is a peninsula known for its palm-lined beaches on the Caribbean coast of southern Belize.

Placencia Belize - Tirzah1

The Spaniards that traveled the southern coast of Belize in the 1800’s gave Placencia its name. It was once named Punta Placencia in Spanish or Point Pleasant in English.

Switzerland … The Safest Country in the World

Logo-H


Switzerland is a landlocked country in the heart of Europe which encompasses a great diversity of landscapes, culture, and climates on a limited area of 15,940 square miles. Switzerland is surrounded by 5 countries: Austria, Liechtenstein, France, Italy, and Germany.

Switzerland Map

Not only does Switzerland embrace the strength that comes from diversity, according to a recent study from ValuePenguin, Switzerland was determined to be the safest country to visit or live. Out of 195 countries in the world, 107 supplied enough data to be ranked. The countries were ranked based on: population, CO2 emissions, life expectancy, number of national police personnel, traffic deaths, thefts, and assaults.

World Flags World's Safest Country

The splendor of the magnificent Swiss landscape has inspired poets through the ages. Switzerland offers beauty of snow-capped mountain peaks and picturesque valleys with cascading waterfalls. A few of the top attractions consist of the Matterhorn, Rhine Falls, Lauterbrunnen Valley, Lake Lucerne, and Chillon Castle.

The Matterhorn, an iconic symbol of the Swiss Alps and the tallest mountain in the Alps, is a pyramid-shaped colossus of a mountain that is very difficult to climb. The majestic, isolated mountain is said to be the “most-photographed mountain in the world” as well as the “Mountain of Mountains.”

Matterhorn Switzerland

Rhine Falls are the largest falls in Switzerland as well as the largest plain waterfall on the European continent falling from a height of approximately 75 feet and 492 feet at its widest point. The lyrical poet, Eduard Morike, was awed by the falls and wrote … “Hold your heart, oh traveler, tightly in mighty hands! Mine nearly descended, shivering with pleasure. Restless thundering masses thrown upon masses, ear and eye, whither can they save themselves in such an uproar?”

Rhine Falls Switzerland

Lauterbrunnen Valley is home to 72 thundering waterfalls, including the popular Staubbach Falls, which is the highest free-falling waterfall in Europe plunging from an overhanging mountain in a single unbroken fall; the height of the cascade is between 800 and 900 feet. Lauterbrunnen means “many fountains.” In 1779, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe visited the valley, and was inspired by the roaring waters to write his well-known poem ‘Spirit Song over the Waters’.

“Spirit of man,
Thou art like unto water!
Fortune of man,
Thou art like unto wind!”

Lauterbrunnen Valley Switzerland

Switzerland is home to more than 1,500 lakes including Lake Lucerne. This beautiful lake and Beethoven’s famous classical sonata has captured the listener’s imagination when Ludwig Rellstab, a German music critic and poet, wrote that Beethoven’s Fantasia reminded him of the reflected moonlight off Lake Lucerne; the sonata was described as “a boat passing the wild scenery of Lake Lucerne in the moonlight” in 1836; since that time, Fantasia has been referred to as “Moonlight Sonata.”

Lake Lucerne Switzerland

The Chillon Castle is located on a rock on the banks of Lake Geneva. The water castle is the most visited historic building in Switzerland. Chillon was made popular by Lord Byron, who wrote the poem The Prisoner Of Chillon. The poem was written in 1816, and it chronicles the imprisonment of a Genevois monk, François Bonivard in 1532 who was the lone survivor of a family who has been martyred. Byron visited the castle and carved his name on a pillar in the dungeon. After touring the castle, Byron was inspired by Bonivard’s story and composed the poem.

Chillon Castle Switzerland

With the world title as the safest country in the world, this European country beckons you. The peacefulness and splendor awe visitors from the moment they get a glimpse of the first mountain peaks. The Swiss landscape is a ‘harmonious tableau of beautiful images.’

Wish You Were Here! 💕

Daring Adventure

Remember when you were in grade school, and you were tasked at the beginning of the year to write a short-story about your summer vacation?  As you are transported back in time, what daring adventures in faraway lands did you dream of?  What dragons did you slay?

What new and exciting experiences do you have planned today?  If you were to write about your wonderful memories, how would you want your story to read?  How does the scene unfold?

Adventure

Here are a few inspirational ideas for the adventurous, thrill seekers, fearless, and bold explorers.

St. Lucia’s Jetovator presents the cure for boredom! Prepare to defeat gravity while gliding over the Caribbean’s pristine blue waters on an exhilarating water sports adventure.

Who You Gonna Call?

Logo-H


Many have heard of the famous GhostBuster’s theme song, “If there’s something strange in your neighborhood, Who you gonna call … If you’re all alone, pick up the phone and call.”

Who You Gonna Call

Well, imagine being stranded in a foreign country …  Imagine your bag is stolen that has your money, credit cards, and passport, and you are unable to prove your identity … Imagine breaking your ankle as you step off a curb while traveling abroad, and you missed your flight home … Or, imagine getting separated from your tour guide and no one speaks your language … “Who you gonna call?”

Unimaginable events can happen in an ordinary life.  When the unimaginable happens as you are traveling, who are you going to call?  You would call your trusted Travel Agent.  Travel Agents are there when you need them the most.  There is no need to worry about a missed flight,  a Travel Agent is just one phone call away and would have another flight booked as you are relaxing at your dream destination.

There is a significant difference between having concierge services with your travel agent versus a cold booking engine on the internet.  Typically, travel agents have been to the destination, or the travel agent has a credible contact who has personally been there.

When the online ad states the room is “Air-cooled” vs. “Air-conditioned,” would you catch the slight variance in wording, or would you even want to take the time to read the fine print?  When the slick online brochure states that “Every room has a private bathroom,” that does not necessarily mean that the bathroom is actually in the room.

Travel Agents are a reputable source, a personal advocate, offer reliability and assurance, capable of handling complexity, and provide security.  Travel agents will also save you time in ferreting out the best deals; there are countless options.

Nevis Hotel Dream Destination

Travel is romantic.  Travel is adventurous.  Traveling to a particular destination may be a once in a lifetime dream!  Trust your lifetime dream with a professional Travel Agent and someone that you can call!! 💕

Nevis … The Undiscovered Paradise

Logo-H


With the Nevis Tourism Authority, I had a wonderful opportunity of becoming one of the first certified Nevis Romance Specialists. In this unparalleled experience, I discovered an unspoiled natural beauty of the Caribbean!

8-Nevis Mountain Peak2 - Resized

In the center of the tropical island resides the majestic Nevis Peak which is a dormant volcano that rises 3,232 feet above the island, and the tip of the peak seems to always be shrouded by a cloud.  There is one main road that circles around the island, and there are not any traffic lights.  The island is only 36 square miles; it will take about 45 minutes to drive it.  The island is shaped like a ball; whereas, its sister island St. Kitts is a little larger and shaped like a bat.  St. Kitts is more commercialized, and it is a stop with the major cruise ships.  The islands at their closest point are two miles apart; the strait that separates the Caribbean islands at its narrowest is called “The Narrows.”  The Caribbean Sea is west of the two islands, and the Atlantic Ocean is on the eastern coast. The two islands make up a country; two islands, one paradise!

St. Kitts Nevis

Since Nevis is a small island, they must focus on sustainable tourism, and tourism is their major source of income.  They are very “green” in the manner in which they live. From the air, you mainly just see the green landscape and not concrete.  Many of the buildings are made from volcanic stone, and no building is taller than a palm tree.

The people are genuinely nice, and you are always greeted with a warm smile. Since the island is small and the population is few, the locals already know each other so they enjoy seeing new people; it is part of their social life to meet and talk with visitors. You are only a stranger in Nevis once; they know you by name and not as a number. The people on the island take pride in their history.  The primary language is English, and the predominant religion is Christianity.  They are conservative and very educated; they have a 98% literacy rate.

5-Nevis Tourism Authority - Resized

It is a relatively safe place to travel; however, you would want to be as cautious as you are at home.  Interestingly, it is against the law to use profanity and to wear camouflage.

If there are two people having a conversation in the middle of the road, then the next person coming along down the road is not honking wanting them to hurry and move because what is most important is the conversation.

There are not any fast food restaurants on the island.  It is fine dining at its best. Wherever you dine, they are not rushing you in and out to serve the next person. It is a leisurely meal.  It is a time to enjoy your pleasant surroundings, the engaging company, the delicious food, and the conversation.

1-Nevis Roasted Pig - Resized

There is great diversity in the hotels that the island offers; the island is not commercialized with cookie-cutter resorts.  I had the great fortune of getting to stay at the Montpelier Plantation. The hotel was a former sugar plantation which dates back to 1747, and the hotel opened in 1966.  The hotel is situated on 60 acres amidst lush tropical hills at the base of the majestic Nevis Peak and 750 feet above the vibrant Caribbean Sea.

4-Nevis Caribbean Sea

A welcoming weeping fig at the entrance of the inn makes you feel as though you are entering the land of enchantment.

3-Nevis Montpelier Fig Tree

At this boutique hideaway, you can reserve private dining in a 300 year old sugar mill and get a stellar 6-course meal; this romantic and memorable dining experience is something that you would not get anywhere else in the world.

6-Nevis Sugar Mill

As I walked to my room, I felt like I was in a rain-forest with the lush greenery. Princess Diana also stayed here in 1993 to escape the media; she came with her two sons one month after her separation from Prince Charles was announced. We did many site inspections of various hotels including Montpelier, and the room she stayed in was the room that we toured.  When I had time to enjoy our lodging, I went and sat on the porch of Princess Diana’s room.  I wanted to sit where she sat and see the view that she saw.  The view was very beautiful, but it was also very peaceful as was the view from my room.  She picked a room next to a tennis court.  I stayed in Cottage #1, and she stayed in Cottage #16 so our rooms were relatively close.

7-Nevis Montpelier Rain Forest

Nevis has a large population of wild African Green Vervet Monkeys.  The monkeys outnumber the residents with a resident population of 12,000.  The monkeys live on the mountain, and then come down for food during the day.  The monkeys would be at the back entrance of my room which had a view of the mountain and Caribbean Sea.  I did not actually see a monkey there, but my neighbor next to me saw them all of the time and showed me pictures to prove it.  I saw the monkeys elsewhere though.  One was scampering on the golf course, and the others were playing in the rain-forest.  The wild monkeys shy away from people if you try to get close.  Fascinatingly, there are even Monkey Crossing signs on the road.

2-Nevis Monkey

The island also has goats and donkeys that wander and graze during the day; they were not fenced in, but they go home to their owners in the evening.  I was surprised that the island had so many flowers with the goats.

1-Nevis Tirzah

Sometimes people go on vacation, and when you return, you need a vacation from your vacation.  This beautiful island is different to me; everything about it is relaxing; you truly embrace island time, revel in the lush tropical beauty, and appreciate the importance of conversation and relationships. There are so many interesting tidbits about the island.  I highly recommend a visit to the enchanting island of Nevis, a very charming, intimate, and pampering secret escape! 💕
