Alex's Corner

Aloha and Happy Summer's End!

Mahalo, Arigato, Danke, Thank you, Gracias, Merci, Asante, Takk, Spasibo, Obrigado, Xie Xie, Shukran, Toda, Efharisto, Grazie...

I am overwhelmed in a blessed way. I came back to the travel industry and you greeted me with open arms. 2016 has been a phenomenal year and it is only getting better. When I made my 2017 announcement back in June, who would have thought that over 120 people would have responded? Not me. WOW!

All six of the 2017 programs are past the half way point in membership. The America's Heartland journey is on WAIT LIST. There are only a few single rooms available on the Australia & New Zealand adventure. All other singles are on WAIT LIST. WOW!

It is early and there is still time, but right now all I can say is a very, very heartfelt MAHALO!

The pressure is on. You have responded and now it is up to me to provide. I take it seriously. It is my family’s tradition. Over 4 generations of Dolds have been in the service industry. It is our fortune to serve. And for our Travel Ohana it is very well worth all the effort.

Mahalo and God Bless,
Alex

Dold World Journeys Updates

2017 Program – Second Edition
A byproduct of the 2016 vote is our 2017 program slate. All of next year's journeys either took second place or first place but I could not fit it in seasonally. As you know, I only travel when it is the best time (based on weather, events, US dollar strength, etc.).

Booking, Enhancement and Finalization
We are moving ahead. Already one adventure is on the books. With the help of my travel guru, Todd Ney, and the expert direction of Kim Vincent at the Globus Family the "Costa Rica Nicaragua" adventure is finalized. It's ready to make Travel Dreams Come True. I am looking forward to discovering this new part of the World. You know I like to be there before the tourism kicks in - Cuba, Myanmar, and now Nicaragua.

Just received the third draft of the America's Heartland. With Barbara Buryiak's input and Shannon Connolly at the helm, it is going to be awesome. Shannon put together our "Across Southern" and "Northern US" programs. She knows our Travel Ohana well. And I am sure we can consider Barbara part of our Ohana.

Sat down with Bobby Chinen this week to polish up our Tohuku with Sado Island program. You know, I am most at ease when Bobby-san is on it. My Sensei has an incredible knowledge of Japan and has taught me the importance of giving back to the Ohana.

Registering for a 2017 program
If you are serious (only final price or dates are holding you back) about a journey it is a good idea to Register for it.  Please send in your completed and signed reservation form by e-mail or USPS mail (enclosed is a copy). A deposit is NOT required to hold your space until we have finalized the itinerary for your journey.

On The Road Again
Praise God, in less than 10 days, 42 of our Travel Ohana will be exploring the pomp and circumstance of the British Isle (we are catching the Edinburgh Tattoo performance too). I will be out of town from August 15 to 30.  

Please feel free to e-mail me and I will do my best to get back to you within 48 hours. Unfortunately, I will not be able to take phone calls or retrieve phone message. You could also text me at 258-2686 (please include a name)..
