A Better Way to Travel for the Luxury Minimalist


Monograms a better way to Travel

In the day an age of travel it’s easy to get lost in a world of so many choices.  I have recently discovered through my travels that there is a better way.  A better way to get the most from your vacation dollars and if you are an American like me a better way to make use of the short amount of time you have for vacation.

The average American vacation is 1 week or 2 weeks if you are really lucky.  This is a small amount of precious time compared to other countries who will often have 30 days or more.   So what is an American to do?  Well you can do all your own research all your own plans all your own transports, getting from here to there, all your own meals, all your own tours, ect ect.   Then you sit around and hope you get the best deal, the best price, and it comes in at budget.   You deal with an internet entity and you are left to your own devices if anything goes wrong.  After all you just spent 3 grand or more and you got nothing for that but a website and nothing to back it up.  NO human interaction what so ever.  Who booked it?  You really have no idea, all you do know is you saved 5 bucks. You feel somewhat good about it but really have no idea what to expect or even what to anticipate.

Isn’t there something better out there?

Yes Yes Yes!!!  There is and I have discovered it’s called Monograms it provides me a much better service and value for not only my vacation dollars but my time.  How about in the age of the internet we do it smarter?   Yet by all means do the research some of it’s fun until you realize there could be 8 billion entries for something simple like Paris.  So this is where Monograms is that smarter way and of course booking Monograms through your travel agent.

For the luxury minimalist Monograms could not be a better option as I can maximize not only my vacation dollars, I get amazing value, and use my precious vacation time very wisely.  I am very much about value and of course luxury and it fits well into what Monograms does.  So………Who is Monograms?

They are a quiet little company offering you a one stop shop vacation that includes everything from hotels to transfers, to breakfast and some meals, and get this a LOCAL HOST for just about the same price you would pay by putting together yourself and if you really include what they do for a lot less.   Monograms will not only get you there quicker, and easier, they will do it with a lot less hassle.  Everything is arranged for you including highlights, tickets, and tours too.   You will be able to  see things quicker and easier than going alone. No waiting in lines, no waiting at the airport to figure out how you’re getting to the hotel, no waiting to grab your iPhone or dictionary to figure out what someone is trying to help you with or explain.  Your local host will pick you up and take you right from the airport.  It is NOT a tour.  It’s is totally self directed in the aspect you are not with a group of people.  You have some things which are scheduled at a certain time not unlike booking a visit to a popular attraction.  The difference is no line.  Transportation all included no having to worry about how your getting from there to there.  It’s set.

In Paris for instance a taxi is 150 or so from the airport to downtown where you want to stay because it is close to everything and walking distance.  Now you could take your luggage with you and catch a train which would be less but when you are lugging around a week or two of luggage good luck. Especially because it’s not really saving you any money.  With Monograms this is included remember your local host pics you up at the airport in a private car.  In Paris the price of a hotel in the same downtown area can be upwards of 300 or more per night with Monograms this is included.  Tours to the Louvre, Eiffel tower and all the must see attractions yes you guessed it included.

When in Rome why pay to wait in line at the Vatican which can sometimes take up to 4 hours or longer especially in the height of the season?   Why have to worry about getting to and from the different areas of Vietnam and Cambodia all the while not speaking the language?   What are the best places or things you should see in Venice or in Budapest?  All these are taken care of for you when you book with your travel agent a Monograms vacation.  Which leaves time for………………………….

When you only get 7 days those 7 days become extremely valuable and that time becomes very important.  So why not do it in a way that provides a stress free vacation at pretty much the same cost you could get doing it yourself.   Luxury and service at a great price is extremely valuable so why settle for less?

So for the luxury minimalist I say give your travel agent a call and have your next vacation be a Monograms vacation.  Stress free, comfort, service, value all of these become very important to me when I am using my minimal vacation hours.  Why would I want to settle for anything less?  Yes I would say the journey is part of the destination but I like the journey to be comfortable of course with a little bit of luxury built in.
