Where, Oh Where, Have I Been?

Punta Gorda, Fla., 2010 Christmas Tree

Punta Gorda, Fla., 2010 Christmas Tree

Hey, there! Don’t worry, I’m still here. I’ve been trying to post about five times a week on this blog however my “day job” has been consuming me for about the past week including working through the weekend by hosting a media familiarization trip. (Basically it’s hosting members of the media in my destination in hopes they’ll write about the area.)

The weekend’s trip had a Holidays on the Harbor theme so it included a trip to downtown Punta Gorda for the Christmas tree lighting, visit to the Christmas Market, Lighted Canal Cruise with King Fisher Fleet and participating in the Charlotte Harbor Lighted Boat Parade. Other stops were incorporated but you’re going to have to wait until Wordless Wednesday to see where else we visited.

For the next few days I’m in Daytona Beach attending the VISIT FLORIDA Marketing Retreat. Hope I have some time to do a little exploring, the hotel is very nice and can’t wait to share what you can purchase from the room! It’s tasty and fun. See ya soon!

  1. Hi Jen, nice to see you are posting your action and activities, and hope you’re still enjoying moving about.

    I’m curious if you have been to Cuba?? and if it is possible to do so w/o massive administration issues?

    Good luck with Daytona Beach also

    And, good luck w/the Buffalo snow; talked to your Mo;m yesterday and more was coming…hooray for a winter wonderland….at least once a year should be manageable???

    Take care for now; I’ll watch for your commentary


  2. Hi Uncle Don!

    Yes, I visited Cuba in Dec. 2003 right before Pres. W pulled the cultural visiting visas (here are some snapshots). These days there are still ways to legally go – especially with a group with a humanitarian team. I’m looking into going again this spring – will keep you posted! Cross Cultural Solutions is who I traveled with and Global Exchange offers trips.

    I have some Cuba stories somewhere – I need to find them and post!

    I’m hoping I don’t get stuck in an airport on my way home!
