Do you love essential oils? Do you believe in the power of natural remedies and want to start using them more intelligently?
There’s definitely a lot to learn!
You have to know:
- What’s safe

- What to buy
- Which remedies are right for each situation

I have always wanted to take a Viking River Cruise, so I was thrilled when my blogger friend, Suzanne Stavert of Adventures of Empty Nesters, and I were invited to sail! I chose the ship and itinerary, Elegant Elbe, and prepared for an exciting and fun trip! I was not disappointed! And best of all, I learned so much along the way, and for me, that is one of the best things about travel.
The Elbe River is not as famous as the Rhine or the Danube, but I loved the itinerary which took us from Berlin, Germany to Prague, Czech Republic. I hadn’t been to Europe for 10 years, and it was so wonderful to experience places I had never been before. Our exploration of the cities of Germany and Czech Republic, all behind the Iron Curtain of the Cold War, was nothing short of a revelation. It was my first real look at how people lived in places controlled by the Soviet Union. Of course, the trip was full of beauty and wonder, too, incredible countryside, castles, palaces, vineyards and ancient town squares. However, a funny thing happened on this trip, we didn’t sail at all.
Yes, I know, it’s a river cruise, but the drought in Europe had lowered the Elbe River to a point where we could not sail. There was much disappointment, but Viking handled the situation with seamless hospitality. After staying a couple of nights in Berlin, we went to the Viking ship, the Beyla, docked in Wittenberg, Germany. I was bowled over by the elegance of the streamlined luxury ship. It was truly, truly a beautiful ship. Suzanne and I were fortunate to have tours of the bridge and the kitchens, and they were so clean, so perfectly appointed, it was amazing. Our stateroom had a balcony and was absolutely gorgeous! The dining room, lounges and bar were spotless and very luxurious. The food was delicious. We met so many new people, most of whom were dedicated Viking passengers, having sailed with Viking at least once, and most had gone on more than one trip. That is certainly a testimonial to the excellence of Viking Cruises.
After two nights on the Beyla, we switched to her sister ship, in Dresden, the Astrild. Actually, it wasn’t like changing boats at all, the ships were exactly the same, and Viking handled everything smoothly. The crew was different of course, but both crews were absolutely fantastic. Our program director, Benne Bennison, remained for the entire trip, and she was absolutely professional and very enjoyable to travel with. She did an amazing job with ninety people who were disappointed not to sail! After three nights on the Astrild, we went to Prague and a hotel there.
Comfortable Viking coaches took us to all the sights that had been originally planned, and so we had a fantastic time on our non-cruise cruise! I do hope to take a Viking Cruise that actually sails at some point, but hats off to Viking Cruises for making this trip absolutely wonderful! I cannot think of a single thing that wasn’t perfect. Every passenger enjoyed the trip, and planned to take another Viking Cruise. Thank you, thank you Viking River Cruises, for a marvelous experience! Take a Viking Cruise, y’all, and #traveltamstyle!

Alternative Travel for Adventure Lovers!
What does “vacation” mean to you? Sometimes people have three things on their minds: sun, sea, and sand. However, every now and then you do need a vacation that entirely revolves around rest and recuperation. For the adventure lover, there are plenty of alternative vacations out there that might suit you a little better! No matter what your area of interest, there will be some sort of specialist trip out there to suit your needs. So, here are a couple of alternative getaway ideas for those who are looking for something a little different!
Who said you need to stay on dry land while you’re away? Sailing remains an extremely popular means of exploring unfamiliar areas, not only do you get the thrill of the sea breeze through your hair out in open waters, but you can pull up at some truly unique beaches and coves along the way! Now, there are two different ways to undertake a sailing trip. The first is to go it alone (or with whoever you’re travelling with). This will require a thorough understanding of how to sail – not only will this help your trip to go smoothly, but it’s important for safety’s sake, as open waters can be dangerous if you don’t know how to navigate them properly. On the other hand, if you are feeling a little reluctant to head straight out into open waters alone, you could take part in a pre-planned sailing trip that will follow a mapped out route.

If you’re comfortable with heights and are looking for an intense trip that can provide you with an adrenaline rush and some of the best views of different areas that you visit, then a climbing trip might be the best option for you. If you’re already into climbing, you’re probably pretty set and ready to go. You’ll have the necessary skills and equipment to take straight to the cliff edges or mountain faces. But, if you’ve never tried climbing before, you don’t necessarily have to rule yourself out of this kind of trip. There are plenty of ways to prepare yourself. Perhaps the easiest and safest way to get into rock climbing is to participate in indoor climbing closer to home first. Your first visit may feel a little intimidating, but it will be more than worth the effort. A tutor will be able to guide you step by step through all of the basic moves, meaning you add some to your inventory every visit. It won’t be long until you have the essential skills to climb unsupervised and can start planning your climbing holiday. Just make sure to always climb with a group of friends so that someone can seek help if an accident does occur.
These are just two different types of adventure holiday that you might like to consider when planning your next trip! So, be bold and brave and try something new and a little more adventurous!
