Longing to see the world she started travelling across Ontario with her Aunt when school was out for summer. In 1999 Mary took her first road trip across New York State and Massachusetts. Between 2001 and 2008 Mary had the opportunity to travel to England, the Isle of Man and, Scotland; these trips helped Mary developed her passion not only for international travel but local and national travel as well. In 2009 Mary enrolled in triOS College and studied Travel and Tourism, graduating at the top of her class and on the Dean’s Honor List. In 2012 Mary started a small travel blog called my adventures in travel, in order to share where her trips would be taking her in the spring and summer seasons.

Get to Know Natalia Weidner TPI
Allure of the Seas - Central Park

I just returned from a 7-day cruise aboard the amazing Royal Caribbean Allure of the Seas. It was TPI's National Conference and 140 travel consultants and our best suppliers spent the week alternating between educational sessions where we learned best practices from each other and all about our suppliers with entertainment sessions - from an Amazing Race sponsored by Thomas Cook to TPI's Got Talent sponsored by Transat Holidays. I'm so excited to tell you a little more about this ship.Check out my video:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EEKdIjrnrxE

 
Cruising & Entertainment
Is what the members of my BNI networking group said this morning. "Sure, it was business - you were on vacation!" Yes, a travel consultant's work includes the pleasure of travelling to new destinations and seeing what is available, and that is a perk, and the advantage to my clients is that my first-hand experience helps me assist you in finding the best fit for your vacation.
In addition, this National Conference afforded me the opportunity to personally get to know some key travel suppliers, from Thomas Cook and Transat Holidays to Kensington Tours and Hotel Connect. This personal connection is invaluable to me and makes me a better consultant for my clients.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LrzoMBoFg2s&feature=related 
Cruising Activities - Dreamworks Experience

Is something I've heard many clients say - and also was a concern of mine until I sailed on the Allure of the Seas. Children & adults alike will find no end of activities and relaxation options onboard from Dreamworks characters like Shrek and Fiona roaming the ship, to world-class professional shows like Chicago

to shopping at the Coach store or relaxing on the sun deck.
Check out these videos about the entertainment onboard.
Allure of the Seas - Ports of Call
 I like to think about sunny places! On port days while we were sailing on Royal Caribbean's Allure of the Seas, the TPI Associates got to play! Our first port of call was Labadee, RCI's private island off the coast of Haiti. We docked which meant you could disembark at your leisure, without waiting for a tender, and then we enjoyed an Amazing Race style team activity. My team (the Purples) won! We were able to spend the afternoon lazing by the beach or trying out the giant ziplines that span the mountain to the beach. I chose to relax - when you have a 2-yr old at home, it's not often that you get to sit and do nothing, so I jumped at the chance!
Weddings at Sea - In Style
