"A mind that is stretched by a new experience can never go back to its old dimensions." Oliver Wendell Holmes
There are not many places I do not wish to revisit. I feel that the more I travel and the more I see, the more I want to see. This is how my mind has been stretched. I want to keep learning. I want to keep stretching.
Some interesting news!
We are headed down to Orlando during probably one of its busiest weeks since the start of COVID season. My husband and I are looking forwards to seeing how things are going, getting some first-hand experience with the parks and their respective companies’ policies. I am very excited to see things for myself. I love my Disney vloggers but nothing beats seeing it for oneself!
Things are changing so rapidly and much faster than this once-a-month newsletter post. I am currently working on an "updates" section for the website that will hold new CDC guidelines, cruise industry updates, international travel news, and park announcements as soon as I have the news. I will also continue to list current promotions within the correlating page for that particular announcement.
Now for some fun :)
This week on Vintage Concierge Explorers YouTube Channel
I will be sharing some images and a video from the Catacombs de Paris. The video is about 5 minutes long and I wish I had more to share. I mentioned in my vlog that I felt unsure about filming too much or taking a lot of pictures of people’s remains. It was a wonderful experience and one that I will never forget! There is something life-changing about seeing or even getting an idea for what more than 6 million human remains looks like.
A fun little tidbit. Apparently, the August after our trip to the Paris Catacombs, a group of thieves utilized the catacombs to steal more than 250,000 Euros worth of wine. If you want to read more about this particular story, Check out, "Thieves use Paris catacombs to steal fine wine" by Chris Mercer.
How am I escaping; feeling like I am traveling?
Speaking of Disney vloggers, one of my favorite ways to free my mind and eyes from my 4 walls, especially during these times, is through vlogs. I LOVE, well we love, Jones Family Travels! The kids and I have been watching their vlogs for so long and they always help lift our spirits! I have another recommendation but this is a "follow" suggestion! WDW Walt Disney World Magazine is so much fun and has so many fun articles, however, their IG content is fun, engaging, and silly. Not only does it help us all feel connected to the parks, they make us laugh.
I'm new around here. Subscribing and tapping that "like" button helps my biz!
I hope you will pop over to VCE's youtube channel and take a peek inside the catacombs! Thank you for stopping by and I hope this little note from me to you will encourage you to explore the world and live empowered.
Cheers explorers and happy travels!
