Tips on Planning a Memorable Trip

There are over seven billion people in the world and one way to get to know and understand the various cultures that make up the planet is to travel. It doesn’t necessarily mean you have to trek to every corner of the globe. If you can take a trip around the world, that’s fantastic. But you don’t have to be rich to plan a memorable trip. You can choose to travel domestically or internationally. And you will want to get the most from your trip without going bankrupt.

Decide how much of a budget you have and stick with it. Select a good travel agent, or if you have the inclination and time, you can plan your own tour; there are many travel sites online that offer some great package deals. If you are traveling domestically, consider driving or seeing the country on a bus or train. If traveling abroad, check airline promotional fares, and avoid traveling during peak periods such as July, August, and December. If you’re not into flying, there are cruise lines that offer great money-saving incentives, and you’ll get to meet new people and possibly form lasting friendships.

You can take shorter trips if you are press for time or money, but if you don’t like traveling alone, you can join a travel club.

Lastly, wherever you travel, whether it’s domestically or internationally, try to stay and eat where locals live and eat. You will not only learn about their traditions, but they will learn more about your way of life.

Featuring Judy C. Andrews - The Author Who Explores Gullah/Geechee Culture


A HERITAGE OF TREASURES

~~~~~~~~~~~~

An Ocean of Jewels (a literary novel) by Judy C. Andrews

“…the language of photographs and a love letter kept appearing on the walls of the cave that had grown in my soul along with the oak trees, especially on my 12th birthday, when my mother’s sweet whispers of her love for me disappeared. That night, I learned the art of dancing people used to wipe tears away…” (From Chapter 1)

~~~~~~~~

Judy C. Andrews’ debut novel, An Ocean of Jewels, released by The Harlem Writers Guild Press explores Gullah/Geechee culture in a suspenseful, mesmerizing plot. The main character, Imani Jewel Henderson, a former foster child, is forced to seek the knowledge of her rich heritage when her father dies at Christmas on her 29th birthday. A legacy of treasures is in her grasp. Will she find it?

Imani embarks on a journey to discover her father’s mysterious past and the root of her mother’s pain. Readers will learn what Imani uncovers about her family, history, and herself. Join her, in the Gullah/Geechee, fictional towns of Jewel Park, New York, and Eva Creek Island, with a glass of Teacola, some warm sweet potato pone, and a dollop of curiosity.

Other issues explored in the novel are Colorism, Orphan Trains, The Jewish Holocaust, and Bedford-Stuyvesant’s historic, Weeksville community.

A Gift To Treasure - A Novel by Judy C. Andrews

The newly married narrator, Treasure Fields Hawthorne, embraces her hometown, Jewel Park, New York with loving nostalgia, despite bittersweet memories. Her life is altered when she encounters a mysterious teenager. Through the teen's revelations of abuse, Treasure soon learns that Jewel Park, New York, the predominantly African American town founded by descendants of Gullah/Geechee heritage, has changed in plain sight.

While the town's history and cultural fabric remain intact, Treasure soon realizes the teenager's devastating ordeal can destroy the town's legacy, the teen's life, and even her marriage. The teenager's story unfolds to reveal a horrific abuse of power and criminal activity involving kidnapping, sex trafficking, insurance fraud, black market drugs, and possibly murder.

With the help of her husband Herald, as well as family and friends from the Freemasonry community, Treasure must dive headfirst into dangerous situations. Yet, Treasure herself has a painful past she must first overcome. Can Treasure heal and soothe the pain of this teenager? Can Treasure restore honor, dignity, and respect to her hometown and the long-time residents of Jewel Park?
