Where is Chris - Shopping

This collage pictures several store fronts in a very popular shopping district within a popular cruise destination.  These store fronts almost come to life with the colorful buildings and figures that adorn the windows and balconies.  Can you guess where I am?

#KeepTheKidsEngaged by researching these destinations online.  Hint:  you don't need to wait for us to reveal the location.  You can search for similar images on Google.   The sky's the limit on where you go once you determine the destination.   For those that like to draw, have them draw a building and use their favorite colors and characters.

We hope you are enjoying this series of  "Where is Chris" posts.  We'd love your feedback on our social media.

Where is Chris - Fossil Fools Day

Today is the perfect day to  #KeepTheKidsEngaged.  They love dinosaurs.  I remember my grandsons being able to name them just by looking at them.  One of the main attractions at today's destination has a museum with an entire gallery devoted to this ancient time.  Can you guess where I am?

Where is Chris - Colorful Crayons

Today is #NationalCrayonDay.  During one of our trips, we picked up this small package of crayons which we brought home for our grandkids.   You won't have to work too hard to guess today's destination - just look at the crayon box.  Drawing with crayons is a good escape for children plus it will give you insight into their inner feelings.  #KeepTheKidsEngaged

Coronavirus Resources

This post was originally posted as Coronavirus Travel Advice  during the early stages of the outbreak when people were wondering if their destination was on lock down or if their cruise line had cancelled their cruises.  

We are modifying this post to remove content which may be misinterpreted as suggesting traveling is safe.    W\e do have links to help people with travel booked for later in the year.  They will need to make decisions, if those decisions aren't made for you by the travel provider.

For example, most cruise lines are extending the 30 day shutdown.  
Put simply  #StaySafeStayHome   #SelfDistancing
Obviously, not everyone can stay home, so then use the guidelines posted on CDC & WHO (and other medical / government) sites.  We are home and here to help with any travel questions -- whether Covid-19  travel related or any future dreaming you might be doing. 

We are posting a daily "Where is Chris"  image for you to guess the destinations.  We encourage those with children to find ways to keep them engaged using travel related topics.





The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is closely monitoring an outbreak of respiratory illness caused by a novel (new) coronavirus first identified in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China. Chinese authorities identified the new coronavirus, which has resulted in thousands of confirmed cases in China, including cases outside Wuhan City. 

Additional cases have been identified in a growing number of other international locations, including the United States. There are ongoing investigations to learn more.

The following  video is very informative - worth watching.



Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) advice for the public

The World Health Organization has a website dedicated to Novel Coronavirus 2019.  The advice for the public, including those traveling, is very simple - and it is advice that should be followed all the time.

  • Practice Respiratory Hygiene
  • Maintain Social Distancing
  • Avoid Touching Eyes, Nose & Mouth
  • If you have Fever, Cough & Difficulty Breathing - Seek Medical Help
  • Practice General Hygiene when visiting Live Animal Markets, Wet Markets or Animal Product Markets
  • Avoid Consumption of Raw or Undercooked Animal Products

Cruise Line Specific Resources   

These links are intended to help guests that may have travel booked for later in the year.  Cancellation policies are very dynamic - often changing daily depending on the current status of the pandemic.  Our recommendation is to stay current on those policies (we are here to help our guests).   In most cases, you can wait until 48 hours before scheduled travel to make any decision.   Hopefully things will return to normal later in the year, but for now just stay safe and informed.
