Alex's Corner

Aloha!

Wishing all of you a fantastic year full over Love, Peace, and World Exploration.

2020 is technically Dold World Journeys 5th Anniversary yet I’ll be celebrating it next year after completing the fifth year. Instead I’m going to dedicate 2020 to my parentsWalter and Jutta Dold.

My mother passed at the beginning of January. We're very happy she’s in a better place and with dad once again. My father passed in November of 2017. Mom believed that for many people, traveling is a dream. She taught me our role as agents was to "Make People's Travel Dreams Come True." Thanks to mom's inspiration, leading groups is now my passion. 

My father is the whole reason I entered the travel industry and the one who taught me the great importance of Value (busy itineraries, pack with special features, unique experience, and quality comforts) and Service befitting of ‘Ohana.

I thank my parents for bringing me into a business where I have made many friends and family across the world. Where I can make people happy and explore God's beautiful world at the same time. Now, for the first time, they both will be exploring with me in spirit. Mahalo Mom and Dad!

Savor Life and God Bless,

Alex

Dold World Journeys Updates

A Million Mahalos!

Your continued support overwhelms me beyond words. Truly heartfelt. Dold World Journey’s is a company built on our Travel ‘Ohana. For 2020, I am thrilled to offer you my all-time favorite destination, Egypt (I’ve been waiting) and my ultimate show experience, Oberammergau (twice). It’s great to also bring back two of European World Travel’s popular itineraries. AND in your kindness, you responded. Three out of our five 2020 journeys are on Wait List. The other two already with limited space. All of them filled from the people on the inquiry list. I am so blessed and honored once again to see the amazing sights of our world with you, make friends along the way, and reacquaint with former ones. Mahalo!

Available 2020

Eastern US & Canada (Fall Foliage): With the help of my friends at the Globus Family we added so many UPGRADES to a European World favorite it became a CUSTOM program. Special sights like the US Naval Academy in Annapolis, Philadelphia’s Eastern State Penitentiary, and Ellis Island in New York. Plus, unique features like the Hershey Farm’s Smorgasbord dinner and bakery demonstration, dinner at the Skylon Tower overlooking Niagara Falls, a Greenwich Village Food Experience and daily BREAKFAST.

Grand Momiji (Fall Foliage): We are replicating Bobby Chinen's favorite Fall Foliage program with the passionate and caring Michi Goto as our director. Visit Japan’s tallest structure (Tokyo Skytree), its highest located hotel (Hotel Tateyama) and experience an amazing variety of transportation (rickshaw, bullet train, ropeway and more). Pick apples and make Washi paper. Plus, experience the magnificent Fall Colors. This’ll give us a chance to compare an Eastern US Fall Foliage to a Japan Fall Foliage.

You can view our 2020 Final at our Journey’s Page. Feel free to contact me by email or phone (808-732-9430), and I will be happy to send you a copy.

Finalization Guesstimation!

I apologize to the many of you who check your email daily waiting for my next program to finalize. It’s very humbling and heart felt. When it comes to finalizing a journey it really boils down to a guesstimation (part estimation and part guess). As you can tell I’m very bad at it. It’s because there are so many levels involved (and each program is different).

Customized programs are designed by me and my brilliant industry friends from scratch (for 2020 many of them are in Lugano). They take the longest as we go back and forth multiple times. Modified itineraries are ones which already exist and I (again with help from amazing peeps) add as many features as possible. These are faster but also need to be confirmed by various vendors (some overseas). Then there’s the air space which can only be done 330 day prior to departure (and if you have the land confirm). Add to the fact my finalization periods normally happens during the holidays when many in the travel industry are trying to use up their used vacation. Huge MAHALO for your patience. I’m working on a better system.

Follow Our Travel ‘Ohana On FACEBOOK!

Based on Bobby Chinen’s suggestion, I began playing with Facebook to post our 2018 journeys. The main idea is for our family and friends to be a part of our exploration (if you want them to see how much fun you’re having).
