Thanks for stopping by...
Are you confused with so
online travel options?
Do you often say to yourself,
"Gee this would be so much easier if I
get just a little bit of help before
pushing that go button?"
Do you remember when you could
pick up the phone and talk to a real
person without having to push
1, 2, 3 or 4 followed by # or *?
Not to worry - help is on the way.
We all suffer through the same frustrations today, no matter what your age. Of course, the kids of today, and I
mean anyone under 50, are more in tuned with automation as it is, and don't mind pushing a few buttons to get to
where they want to go.
But us "old folks" - myself included - remember "the good old days" when a friendly voice on the other end of a
phone gave us hope that our questions would be answered without being on "hold" for 10 minutes or more. Remember
Well, I'm here to say, you can still get some "old fashioned" service and talk to a real person for answers to
your travel questions. I've been a "matchmaker" for close to 41 years, matching folks with destination dreams from
the Atlantic to the Pacific and around the globe.
If you need a quick answer for some place you're thinking about, give me a call at
931-484-8228 or email me, Elaine Johnston, and I'll try to help. When you're ready to make a commitment, we'll sit down
together or discuss your plans on the phone, map them out, and come to a decision that's best for you. It's that
If you've done some research online, don't be afraid to tell me. It makes my job easier in giving you the right
information instead of playing guessing games. If you tell me what you've done, and what prices you have come up
with someplace else, I can do a price-match search and compare apples to apples. This way, I find exactly what you
want, and you get the comfort of knowing that I'll take care of all the details for you. No worry on your
part. It doesn't get any better than that!
Don't you know, a
vacation is a terrible thing to waste...
Your vacation is too important to entrust to an unqualified order taker. Anyone who is familiar with cruise
lines, resorts and tours knows that "one size does not fit all". Over the years, I have traveled extensively and
have become expert in the products I sell. I take pride in matching my clients with the right cruise or land tour.
If you have questions about travel, talk to someone who has the answers of experience...
for the best to make sure you get the best!
Now that you know how I work for you, why not let me be your "personal travel planner" by using my expertise and

numerous options, evaluating vendors and than making recommendations to fit your travel
That being said, I know from experience there are those
of you out there in "Cyberspace" who still want to try it on their own - no matter
what. You know who you are...you're sitting there right now saying, "I'm here, let's
see what I come up with that will appeal to me, my spouse, the kids and/or the
grandkids." I say, go for it. But please, please, please,
let me help just a bit by pointing you in the right direction to vendors and suppliers
I have worked with in the past
- some for 41 years - that I know will do a good job for you and stand by their
word. If you use one of our suggested vendors and find you need help
later down the line, I can jump right in.

Spiritual...life-changing...inspirational. How would you describe your
last travel experience? Now you can have all of this and fun - on a Globus Religious Vacation.
Traveling as an individual or part of a larger group is always life
changing. Just think of the possibilities when traveling with your church or religious organization. Fellowship,
outreach, and building a stronger community will be the results of making your spiritual journey. As congregating
has always been a part of the Christian faith and practice, travel continues this great tradition and fosters
Travel has long been a part of the history and traditions of the Christian life. During biblical times, travel
was necessary in order to communicate the Word of God and grow the religious community. Remember Abraham's journey
and the travels of the Israelites? Throughout history, travel was a way God led his people from where they were to
a place of blessing.
For the Christian, sacred sites and destinations remain as integral to faith as ever. Although the means of
transportation have changed, the reason for taking a religious journey remains much the same.
Religious travel offers extraordinary benefits including spiritual enlightenment. A wonderful way to vacation,
you'll see firsthand how culture, history, and the heritage of your faith interact in life today - and you may even
discover that it supports other ministries you may be involved with, growing your faith in a personal, enriching
