We ALL love our Pets, they’re considered our “Best Friends / Family”. And just like traveling with a small child, it can be a wonderful and bonding experience or a not so pleasant one. Its all in the planning! One great tip I got from my neighbor was, if you’re planning on a long drive for instance, before you actually take that Road Trip, is to take a trial run to see how your pet responds. Does he get car sick? Anxious? Its a really good idea to find this out first, believe me! Not all pets are good with traveling. Could be because of age or they’re just too excited. Below you can read up more about traveling with your pet and the article also offers the tips to help you prepare for a safe and smooth trip, as well as the steps you can take to make traveling a pleasant experience, for both you & your pet!

Traveling the world is a beautiful thing. But sometimes, right in your own backyard, there are amazing / beautiful places to visit, without even getting on a plane. Road trips, in my opinion, can be exciting. My husband & I take many. Less stress than flying & were at our own pace, and October can also be a perfect Month to plan your adventures (if you plan it right, most States have their beauty due to the leaves changing). These 40 American towns that are highlighted below, are probably towns that most of us haven’t even heard of. Take a look & get out there to enjoy the beauty of these few amazing beauties! Right in our own backyards!
FYI: Today is National Coffee Day! To celebrate National Coffee Day, Starbucks will donate a coffee tree for every brewed cup of México Chiapas coffee you buy on Thursday, September 29. Today’s cup can help a farmer’s future! Drink up!
Growing up on the East Coast (Long Island, NY), I long for the Weekend Getaways with my parents to “Upstate” NY. We had picnics along the Delaware Water gap, sang songs, visited my parents friends, ect. I treasured those weekends and passed along the tradition with my own children. When my 3 boys were 12, 7 & 6 (today 30, 26 & 25) we took a road trip, one of many, to Niagara Falls, and to this day we still talk about “The Falls” Ithaca Falls was one of the most recent. I didnt even know it was in existence, until I visited a friend who lived in Ithaca a few years back & went on a hike. There’s just a magical/mysterious beauty that, I find at least, in stumbling along Waterfalls. So when I cane across this Article, not only was I anxious to read it, Id like to share it with others. Hope you all enjoy it as much as I did.
At 10:21am tomorrow, September 22, 2016, is the Fall Equinox. I describe it as when there is a shift from warm, beautiful summer days to cozy fall. There are only two times of the year when the Earth’s axis is tilted neither toward nor away from the sun. March 19th (Vernal Equinox – the first day of Spring) and September 22nd, (Autumnal Equinox – the first day of fall). We’re going to be enjoying the cooler days of autumn, while, south of the equator, spring is about to begin.
The word Equinoz is from the Latin aequinoctium, aequus (equal) and nox (genitive noctis) (night).

Its always a good idea to keep up with Travel, Travel Tips, and Vacation ideas as you plan your vacations ahead. Fall just so happens to be my favorite time of year & as those warm days just basking on the beach, and the last rays of sun lingering late into the evening are winding down. Crisp, cool temperatures and crunchy leaves make fall our favorite time to wander through Central Park in New York City for example. Also,
lets go walking in the woods and enjoy the dramatic fall colors — without the summer crowds. Theres nothing like biking under a fiery orange canopy of trees! So reading up on the latest, is certainly something we suggest, as we approach the upcoming Season. It could be just for fun, or educating yourself on safety, travel laws, ect. Enjoy!
We LOVE Fall in New England. Besides Apple picking & hiking the colorful trails, the best way to take in the beautiful landscape and make the most of the autumn colors is to seek out an overlooked vista, a hidden gem, or a new adventure! You can start in Northern part of Vermont, New Hampshire, or Maine and follow peak foliage south over the course of a week or two. Midweek is the time to hop between towns. For a vintage and very scenic travel experience, hop on a New England railroad car and cruise along the countryside. TIP: Do consider making your reservation as much as two months in advance, (which means now!) especially if you’ve got your eye on a particular room at a particular property.

Want to gain a huge advantage in channel management? Learn how IWB makes MyAllocator better.
IWB has partnered with MyAllocator for years, offering one of the best solutions for channel management and property management. Because of our unique partnership, there are benefits only available to properties that become users of MyAllocator from the IWB interface. In fact, these benefits are unique to IWB users.
Will you have access to the full MyAllocator interface? Yes. And best of all, there’s no additional cost. You just add IWB as your property management system in the MyAllocator system.
Major Benefits of using MyAllocator with IWB:
||Sign up for MyAllocator from the IWB interface, and get a free trial.
||IWB will automatically create and configure your rooms on MyAllocator.
||Use the IWB Calendar for free. Many users agree that our Calendar interface is the most intuitive and advanced for managing your availability. It’s free, and similar features are available only at a cost from other providers.
||Instant World Booking is the only service connected to MyAllocator which offers both a booking site (distribution) and a property management system.
||IWB gives you access to the full MyAllocator interface. It’s all available on the IWB interface, and there’s no need to log into 2 systems simultaneously.
||All your reservations from all channels will appear on one integrated booking list. This is the same efficient reservation tool you’re already accustomed to on the IWB interface.
||IWB uses an advanced queueing method to send updates to your channels via MyAllocator. IWB is the only provider that works this way. So why is this critically important? If you use MyAllocator alone (without IWB), updates are sent immediately and only once to your channels. But, what happens if the update fails, or a particular channel can’t accept updates at that time? You may not know that it failed. This happens frequently, and is an unpleasant reality with channel management systems. You waste a lot of time returning to your computer to repeat the procedure manually, only to watch it fail again? IWB eliminates this problem for you. If a channel rejects an update, IWB will resend the update until it is accepted.
||No more confusing error codes. IWB analyzes channel errors from MyAllocator. We notify you when a channel failure requires your attention. If you use MyAllocator alone (without IWB) you may receive error codes when you try to update a channel. You have to research the error yourself, or contact support. IWB eliminates the guesswork. We communicate the exactly problem to you, and which rooms are effected.
||Click to synchronize any room type. If you have a problem with external channels or an individual room, IWB allows you to resynchronize one or all rooms with one click. MyAllocator does not offer this functionality. In fact, a bigger problem is that full refresh on MyAllocator may fail occasionally with some channels. Our method will automatically reconnect in the background until all channels have accepted the update.
||You get perfect integration between your website’s Booking Engine and all your channels. Use IWB’s Booking Engine on your website, and never worry about synchronizing your calendar with external booking sites. Our Booking Engine is an advanced solution that provides a superior customer experience.
||If you’re looking for a more advanced property management solution, you can try IWBFrontDesk 2, So, you have 2 options for a property management system, and it’s perfectly integrated with MyAllocator and IWB.
To get started, please log into your profile at the IWB interface. Proceed to the page entitled Channel Manager. If you are not already a member, sign up here: Add Property
If you are already a member of MyAllocator, please go to the MyAllocator interface. On the menu, select Property Management System Connections. Follow the instructions to select IWB.
