Wishing You Happy Holiday's and a Prosperous New Year!

Consider a Repositioning Cruise for different Cruise Experience.

Repositioning cruises are one-way itineraries scheduled when ships relocate based on the season. Ships that winter in the Caribbean or Hawaii will often move to Alaska, Europe or Canada/New England in the spring, and reverse course back to warmer climes in the fall.

While not for everyone (repo cruises tend to have fewer port calls and are often longer than typical cruises) benefits include long wonderful days at sea to relax and rejuvenate, and deep discounts on the pricing.

The ports also tend to be more exotic than usual. You can visit broad swaths of the Caribbean or an entire coast line all at once; cross the Atlantic with stops in off-the-beaten-path places, like Greenland; or hit several cruise regions and even continents on one trip.

Kiva is fascinating way to help specific people in Peru or Togo or Tajikistan without leaving the house.

Kiva facilitates micro-lending--small loans of a few hundred dollars to people in very poor countries to begin or to expand their businesses. You may search by region, read people's stories and plans, and loan up to $25 per project. Loans are usually repaid in 6-18 months. Screening and follow-up by local agencies keep the default rates extremely low.

Personal journals detail progress, and you are able to follow your loans through your own "Lender" page. Plus, when the loans are paid back, you can withdraw your money or lend it to someone else in need.

For an example, see our lender page at:
