Sep 21/29 - New England & Canada Fall Cruise "plus" Tastes of New York CityA Personal Invitation to join Paula & Kenny Axman as they celebrate two important anniversaries in 2018 on this fabulous Princess Cruise experience!  2018 is a major milestone in their lives.  45 years ago they were married and began life’s journey together.  Little did they know at the time that 15 years later they would begin another adventure that would actually turn into many additional journeys.  30 years ago this year Paula became a team member of Cheyenne Travel/Please Go Away™ Vacations.  She immediately began to assume additional responsibilities in the organization on a daily basis with Kenny contributing many hours behind the scenes helping to make the business grow and prosper.  They have been blessed with many friends and with many experiences over the years.  From literally hundreds of different travel possibilities they have chosen this special cruise experience to observe their dual anniversaries.  They very much would like for you to join them; perhaps to also share a special event occurring in your lives; and to share their special dual anniversary milestones.

Oct13/20 - Leaves, Lighthouses & LobstersYou’ll stay for an entire week in oceanfront rooms of famous Bar Harbor Inn, situated in downtown Bar Harbor, Maine, New England’s most enchanting island resort.  You’ll literally be within a few feet of the water’s edge, the quaint tree-lined streets, shops, and many fabulous restaurants of this famous seaside resort.  The famous “Shore Path” fronts the property.  Our limited-sized group will be transported on daily outings over the back roads of the state’s interior; and along the ocean-hugging highways and surf-pounding waves of Maine’s rugged and lighthouse-dotted coastline.  Each evening we will return to the comforts of our Bar Harbor Inn accommodations and the Inn’s warm fireplace.  Sequence of events and included sightseeing may be altered to provide most optimal experiences possible.  The time of this fall “Travel Treasure”™ has been carefully chosen to offer the finest resort accommodations, itinerary, and values of season-closing sales of Bar Harbor’s shops.  You will experience many of Maine’s unique offerings in depth – you will enjoy a “A Real Maine Experience”!  

Nov 29/Dec 3 - A Texas Christmas to Remember Sure, it’s San Antonio and its famous Christmas-decorated Riverwalk.  But, it’s much more.  It’s better hotel accommodations.  It’s better located hotels.  It maximizes what is able to be seen and done because long boring and tiring days spent “going and coming” from Texas on a bus are avoided, allowing our travelers to see and experience more.  It’s  Stonewall in Texas Hill country and the childhood home of President Lyndon Johnson.  It’s Fredericksburg filled with German heritage and Christmas tradition (the Christmas tree originated in Germany).  It’s a real Texas ranch dining and holiday experience.  It features outstanding dining experiences.  It includes special “bonus” sightseeing and dining experiences.  It  includes roundtrip airfare.  Travel protection is provided.  There is no need to purchase additional sightseeing experiences to round out your activities.  They are all included.

Dec 8/16 - The Best of Europe's Christmas MarketsTogether, we will sip mulled wine, eat the Christmas delicacy of lebkuchen, and collect unique handicrafts, hand-made ornaments and toys at some of the largest and most famous Christmas markets in Europe.  In multiple ways we will be “going back” to where many of our Christmas traditions started - the Christmas Tree had its origin in Germany.  The slow pace and quality of multi-night stays in warm and cozy accommodations provides the ideal foundation for this “land only” experience in the heart of Europe.  We will spend three nights in the traditional Alpine Village of Oberammergau two nights in the heart of the Black Forest, and two nights in Wurzburg.  We will have time to enjoy these cities completely and to also enjoy exciting and educational daytime trips from them, returning each evening to our warm and comfortable surroundings.  Together, we will bask in holiday cheer as we stroll along the cobblestone streets of Innsbruck, capital of Tyrolean Austria. Visit historic, medieval Nuremberg, Wurzburg and Rothenberg, some of the best preserved medieval towns in Europe. View the fairy tale Neuschwanstein Castle nestled in the heart of mountainous Bavaria. Explore Strasbourg’s Petit France and its quaint market stalls huddled around the imposing cathedral; and much more.

Apr 17/May 3 - Experience the “brand new” Panama Canal - The Panama Canal Expansion was the largest infrastructure project since the Canal’s opening in 1914. Considered and analyzed for a decade with more than 100 studies, the Expanded Canal provides the world’s shippers, retailers, manufacturers and consumers with greater shipping options, better maritime service, enhanced logistics and supply-chain reliability.  The Expansion included the construction of a new set of locks on the Atlantic and Pacific sides of the waterway, creating a third lane of traffic and doubling the capacity of the waterway. It also included the creation of the Pacific Access Channel, improvement to the navigational channels, and improvements to the water supply. 

While the expanded locks are 70 feet wider and 18 feet deeper than those in the original Canal, they use less water due to water-savings basins that recycle 60 percent of the water used per transit. In line with its commitment to customer service, the Panama Canal will continue to provide the world with value for another century and beyond.
