Hello everyone today is 1/12/2018 and we are doing new and exciting things this year with Echevarria Travel.
We will be bringing you weekly updated travel news in the world; hottest destinations, what services out there are important to you to know about, and so much more!
Being a travel professional (Travel Agent) is different than it was maybe 10 years ago. Now people think that industry is dead or travel agents do not exist any longer, which is totally not true.
Yes, we know you will be going on the internet to do your research. Kudos to you! That means you are serious in wanting to travel to a new place or a new experience. That being said, there is a whole lot of information out there that is wrong, that might not pertain to US Citizens traveling to those destinations. It might not go into everything you want to know about, etc. We are hear to help you with that.
Topic of conversation last night was! "How A Travel Agent Saves You Time, Energy and Money! I have posted the video below about that, and yes, I talk fast, yes I love to joke and make things fun. Travel is fun! Travel is for everyone! No matter how old or young you are because traveling improves your mind and your soul, it helps you understand others around you and show compassion, it also educates you on places you have only heard about from family that came from other places. Like myself, My great grandparent left the Ukraine and Romania for a better life here in the USA, but it doesn't show me where we come from or the beauty and hardships that they went through. Same with Nelson, his father's family came from Spain, we are still looking into that but we know it is from the Basque region of Spain called Bilbao, near the French Boarder. So much more. For those offers that I am speaking of in the video see them below.
Have a great day and come by and visit us live every Thursday evening unless otherwise noted on www.Facebook.com/cherylandmaxx. Say hello ask a question on the topic and so much more! We also ask that you tell your friends and family about it as well.

Did you know that there is a 3 Day Weekend Marathon that takes place the 1st in January every year?
Neither did we!
We are posting this to you today for 2 reasons?
1. We have clients who love to run, whether it is just to keep healthy or run in groups, etc. You get it right, of course right!
2. We are big Disney Geeks! Yes, we love traveling all over the world, but both Nelson and myself are going through our first and second childhood, plus we are romantics, and think WDW - Walt Disney World is a great place to spend that special time with your special someone. Valentines Day is coming up and wedding season. Great options for you.
So let's get back to the RunDisney Weekend. Marathon.. Below is the course for the last day which is the 26 miles through all 4 theme parks, which starts and ends at EPCOT.
This is the 25th Anniversary of the Marathon; and people from around the world, just like the New York City and the Boston Marathons; but along the route of the race, they have characters running with you and cast members, special rides and attractions (the rides and attractions for after the marathon or before) music going on during, keeping everyone motivated as they go through the finish lines.
Just to let you know that if you missed this weekend for running they have various ones throughout the year
Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend presented by Children's Miracle Network Hospitals
Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend presented by MISFIT™
In recent years they have added a new marathon for your Star Wars Fans, which happens in April, this year it is Sunday, April 20, 2018 and it is called Star Wars Half Marathon - The Dark Side.
These races are not only for those from around the world, but people who are wheelchair runners, blind runners, etc. If you are a person that walks, this is not for you. You have to be in shape to run as you know.
There are also places you can volunteer and help out during this time.
So if you are thinking of another reason to visit Walt Disney World, why not go for the Marathon.
