Mother's Day is NOT a Greeting Card Holiday

Wednesday, May 8th, 2013

I’ll admit it, I question some holidays on our calendar. Yes, George Washington made serious history as our nation’s first president, but do the banks really need to close in observance?

Some people write Valentine’s Day off as a fake holiday, but personally, I welcome the abundance of love when there’s so much hate in this world. Then you’ve got occasions best viagra alternative like Sweetest Day, Boss’s Day & Secretary’s Day (politically corrected as Administrative Professional’s Day). They work their crafty little way into our calendar each year, and because we love our sweethearts, admire our bosses and treasure our admins, we shower them with flowers, candies and tastefully clever greeting cards – yes, greeting cards.


Merry Christmas & Happy New Year from Reserve123

Friday, December 21st, 2012

Dra, our resident Santa.

The end of every year is always a bittersweet season. On one hand, every gathering place is decorated with garland, lights and festive figurines, and families are making preparations to spend time together for at least a few days. On the other hand, not everyone is able to connect with their loved ones, and for many residents of Newtown, Connecticut, along with the countless individuals who have lost loved ones this year, Christmas and New Year’s traditions may feel incomplete.

This product is the best medicine I have tried. It works well if taken 3 times a day, before each meal. Viagra online canada pharmacy! You can buy branded and generic medicines.

We at Reserve123 would like to take a second to thank each and every one of you for making this year a great one, filled with outstanding travel stories, photos, trinkets and tips. Surely there will be more to share once everyone gets back from their December vacations, and we can’t wait to dig into the goodness. Until then, we hope everyone has a safe and satisfyingly wonderful holiday, filled with gut-wrenching laughter and sleep-inducing dinners.

Happy travels! 

Holiday Gift Giving Time

Wednesday, December 12th, 2012

Some of us wait until the last minute to gather our Christmas gifts, and by some of us, I mean most of us. That’s the only possible explanation for why the stores are so crowded in the few days leading up to December 25th.  Since tomorrow officially starts the 25-day countdown to Christmas, it’s time to start thinking about what to buy for your loved ones.  As a rule of thumb, you’ll want to steer clear of fuzzy decorated sweaters and useless gadgets, unless, of course, you genuinely put some thought into the purchase.

Gift cards tend to fly off the shelves around this time of year, and with good reason. It’s more personal than handing over an envelope of cash, and the recipient still gets to pick out something they’d actually like!

Highly dosed with Sildenafil for better absorption. It sure works for me. Lowest price cialis? We would strongly recommend you to consult your doctor before taking a medication.


Holiday Tour Season is Here

Tuesday, November 13th, 2012

See the Holiday Lights of New York Tour by Minibus

The most wonderful time of the year is here. By now, you’ve likely already made booked your flights and/or rental cars, and all your holiday travel preparations are probably in order. The kids are getting excited. Everyone is getting a jump start on the grocery shopping. You’ve dug up those criminally decorative sweaters from the hidden depths of your closet, and the camera you received Christmas last year is charged, loaded and ready capture.  The local department stores have put up the lights,  holiday commercials have began to air on television, and depending on where you live, there may now be snow on the ground. In general, the atmosphere has shifted, and unless you’ve been bitten by the “bah, hum-bug,” you’re ready to spread and share the cheer.

i enjoyed this product very much, but it can be a little too sweet but very tangy and tasty! Order cialis online! All the medications one can see in our product lists are generic.

Holiday lights are always fun to explore. Which house has the most extravagant display in the neighborhood? How will the park top last year’s arrangement? If you keep your eyes peeled, you might even catch a live nativity demonstration somewhere. The music is merry and bright, Santa is on every other corner, and it’s perfectly acceptable to sip eggnog with breakfast, lunch and dinner. While you’re re-creating you’re favorite recipes in the kitchen, consider adding some spice to your leisure time as well. Take a holiday excursion of some sort! Cruises, coach tours, and trolley rides are all sure ways to see a town in all its magical glory. Here are some of our favorites

General Jackson Holiday Dinner Cruise & Show in Nashville (here): Everything takes place in a glittering two-story theater, where you will enjoy a delicious holiday dinner, and a heart-warming show, filled with holiday classics and contemporary songs of the season, with a country twist. Check it out, y’all!

See the Holiday Lights of New York Tour by Minibus (as pictured): Other tours might keep you on the bus the whole time, but on the Holiday Lights of New York Tour by Minibus, your guide will hop off the shuttle with you and show you Christmas the way New York does it. You’re guaranteed to see the best holiday lights NYC has to offer.

Holiday Lights Tour on the Waikiki Trolley in Honolulu (here): If you’re lucky enough to be spending the holidays in Hawaii, then you’ll definitely want to see downtown Honolulu. It comes alive in a veritable galaxy of festive holiday lights.

Classic Cable Car Holiday Lights Tour in San Francisco (here): The Classic Cable Car rides are already glamorous by themselves, but when you throw the holiday lights in the mix… well, there are no words. You’ll even get a complimentary Santa’s hat!

We’ve got plenty of other holiday touring options, so take a look and see how you can participate in making things festive this year. Even if you won’t be traveling this season, explore your own town! We hope you’re pleasantly surprised by the sights.

Happy travels!


Happy Christmas from Australia!

nolvadex for men

G’day Mates, and Happy Holidays from Reserve123 and Australia Tours! With Christmas and the Holidays right around the corner, we think there’s no better way to spend it than Down Under enjoying the warm summer sunshine with Kangaroos and Penguins! Give yourself the gift of awesome Ausie-style fun in the sun and some of the world’s most incredible sightseeing tours and activities.

Christmas Koala

Christmas Koala

Christmas in Australia is celebrated a little differently – instead of being snowed-in in a crowded house or cabin trapped with relatives you don’t even really like that much, imagine the warm summer weather, exotic sightseeing activities, and fantastic beach excursions! And yes, Australia does also celebrate with Christmas Trees, Father Christmas, Christmas Carols, and gifts shared with loved ones. But Christmas Dinner might be a lovely picnic on the beach, or a delicious barbecue in the backyard, or out on the town with family & friends. Champagne is the traditional beverage instead of eggnog. That sounds like a Very Merry Christmas to me!! :)

Carols by Candlelight

Carols By Candlelight is one of the biggest events of the season. This began in Melbourne in 1937 and are outside concerts in the evenings. Most towns have a concert and two major ones are televised across Australia from Sydney and Melbourne. Adding to the magic of the evening is the spectacular sight of the Sidney Myer Music Bowl transformed into a visual masterpiece, as thousands of candles light up the night sky. An array of top entertainers performing a mix of the season’s favourite contemporary and traditional carols is sure to delight the whole family!

Visit Hunter Valley Gardens

Hunter Valley Gardens

Some of our tours I would recommend are our Hunter Valley Wineries & Gardens Lunch Tour from Sydney Australia. World acclaimed Australian wines from the vineyards of the rolling hills and valleys of the Hunter region, delight both the palate and the eye in this green and fertile land dotted with villages and over fifty wineries. Enjoy a leisurely afternoon at the awe inspiring Hunter Valley Gardens and wander throughout 12 spectacular themed gardens spanning over 25 hectares. Experience a stimulating journey through the magnificent displays, colours and delicate scents.

Healesville Sanctuary

Healesville Sanctuary Wildlife Park

You might also enjoy visiting the Healesville Sanctuary Wildlife Park near Melbourne. Healesville Sanctuary, Australia’s premier wildlife park is nestled in the foothills of the Yarra Valley, just one hour from Melbourne. Showcasing over 200 species of Australian wildlife, the lovely park is renowned as the best place to view Australian wildlife in their natural habitat. The Sanctuary features large walk-through habitat exhibits, flight aviaries and nocturnal exhibits that are well displayed to show the wonderful natural behaviour of Australian wildlife. You can also see the Australian Wildlife Health Centre, a working veterinary hospital offering uninhibited views into the journey of animal rescue, rehabilitation and release.
