Coffee

One of the most important pieces of information I obtain for ANY vacation is,how I will get my STARBUCKS . I must have my coffee. I like it strong and black. I hate waiting in line behind the half/caf skinny blah blah blah. If you can’t take the heat get out of the kitchen as they say. Next I do a search in the area I am staying to see where the nearest Starbucks is located. On occasion,there will not be any. I have a fix for that. I always bring a bag of French Roast with me and include an assortment of different filters to fit any machine the Hotel has available. I have suggested to Starbucks offering a passport to fill showing all the Starbucks you have visited. I use my Gold Rewards card but it only gets me the occasional free coffee and then only if the location participates and is not independently owned. I would like people to know that I have visited Starbucks from Seattle to The Bahamas and beyond. In the unlikely event there are no Starbucks or available coffee  brewers, I check the local hangouts for the good stuff. I have found great coffee in Alaska in a few places. And in Jamaica luckily the first thing I smelled when we stepped off the ship was the coffee. Being a connoisseur of all things coffee, I have previously tried coffee from all over the world and usually know what to look for. When I have run out of all these options I just go for the double esspresso.

I have moved a lot in my lifetime. I also love cars, so loving travel is logical. My first attempt at being my own travel agent came after an exasperating experience in 2001. I had booked a Disney Vacation Package it was to be our first far away vacation as a family and my children’s first visit to Disney World. Through our travel agent I made the arrangements which included a direct flight, transportation, and our hotel with trip insurance. We were scheduled to fly out in November 2001 but then September 11th happened and that changed everything. First there were a lot of air restrictions besides being afraid to travel. I made some calls to see what would happen and found out the flights would be changed. The regulations no longer allowed for any direct flights due to concerns of hijacking and carrying too much fuel. I called the travel agent to cancel and was told the insurance did not cover that type of cancellation. I was furious. What was the point of paying for the Insurance? I was told we could possibly call the airlines for a credit and drive, which was not an option. After weeks of worrying we made the trip. The flight originally was 4hrs but now took 21 hrs but we had a great time. From then on I am the only one in charge of my travel arrangements. Check out my Disney Quick Tips.
