Here was my “Smartest Travel” answer:


Work for Resorts/Cruise Ships

Lisa Ellen Niver of We Said Go Travel loved scuba diving, but she couldn’t afford to dive on her salary at the time. So on a friend’s suggestion, she applied to work at Club Med as a G.O. (an activity organizer).

“I had never heard of it before but sent in a resume and paid to fly to Florida for a group interview. They offered me the job but in Colorado. I wanted to go scuba diving but they needed a person in the kids club who could ski. She promised that if I went to the snow, next I would get underwater. I decided to go for it. I ended up at Club Med for a year and on ships for nearly seven! It was the most amazing way to travel, see the world and save money. I absolutely loved it.”

This smart travel move launched Lisa’s ongoing career as an award-winning travel expert who is featured around the world. To this day, she’s glad she took a chance and went to Club Med to ski when she wanted to go scuba diving. “You never know what can happen if you just begin.”

I really believe what Lindsey Vonn said: “Follow your dreams. If you have a goal, and you want to achieve it, then work hard and do everything you can to get there, and one day it will come true.”

My fortune cookies said:  “A day without smiling is a day wasted.” and “It is not only important to add years to your life but to add life to your years.”

Shana Tova! I hope as the new year of 5779 begins you are filling your life with what is most important to you. I read this quote in the Stephen Wise Temple Yom Kippur Prayerbook:

“As civilization advances, the sense of wonder declines. Such decline is an alarming symptom of our state of mind. Mankind will not perish for want of information; but only for want of appreciation. The beginning of our happiness lies in the understanding that life without wonder is not worth living. What we lack is not a will to believe but a will to wonder.”

by Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel from “As Civilization Advances” in “God in Search of Man: A Philosophy of Judaism”

I hope your new year will be filled with wonder and wander!
Thank you for your all of your support. Lisa
