How do I Live Life to the Fullest?

“It’s not selfish, but selfless to be first, to be as good as possible to you, to take care of you, to keep you whole and healthy, that doesn’t mean that you disregard everything and everyone, but you gotta keep your cup full.”

– Iyanla Vanzant

You can’t control what the other athlete is going to do; you can’t control anything except for your competition and how you execute the race or how you execute the task.

  • Michael Johnson, Olympic Athlete

“There are only two days in the year that nothing can be done. One is called yesterday and the other is called tomorrow, so today is the right day to love, believe, do and mostly live.”

Dalai Lama

“Constant kindness can accomplish much. As the sun makes ice melt, kindness causes misunderstanding, mistrust, and hostility to evaporate.”

-Albert Schweitzer

“Almost universally, when people look back on their lives while on their deathbed […] they wish they had spent more time with the people and activities they truly loved and less time worrying about aspects of life that, upon deeper examination, really don’t matter at all that much. Imagining yourself at your own funeral allows you to look back at your life while you still have the chance to make some important changes.”

― Richard Carlson, Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff

Cowardice asks the question, is it safe? Expediency asks the question, is it politic? Vanity asks the question, is it popular? But conscience asks the question, is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but one must take it because it is right.

– Martin Luther King, Jr.

Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds. The mediocre mind is incapable of understanding the man who refuses to bow blindly to conventional prejudices and chooses instead to express his opinions courageously and honestly.

– Albert Einstein

I would rather lose you as a friend because I SPEAK TRUTH than remain your friend and BE SILENT.

How do I get started and what comes next?

Who is 2BusyNot2Travel™?

2Busynot2Travel is pure travel passion!
Over the years, busy bee was our mode of operation with never finding time for self but always finding time for everyone else and we finally became tired of being shackled to a desk, shackled to close minds and shackled to the insanity of doing the same thing day in and day out but expecting something to change. We finally realized that a choice needed to be made; a choice of where to focus our busy energy and we chose to be busy at living life through travel and to bring the world along with us.   

2BusyNot2Travel is Wanda Thomas, a happy go lucky, laughter filled native New Yorker raised in North Carolina and exposed to all the world has to offer. She is a certified travel consultant, CLIA, IATA and ASTA member with a degree in Finance. She has an eclectic background but currently focuses on Planning and Escorting groups of women and occasionally men throughout the world. She is also a Personal Finance Specialist, Project Management Professional (PMP), an American Society for Quality Certified Quality Improvement Associate (CQIA), a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated and a respected business professional.

Do you provide travel quotes for private trips?

Yes, we provide quotes for all individuals & all private groups.

Do you charge a fee for travel quotes?

Yes, quotes for 1- 4 passengers require a non-refundable $200 planning fee for a single departure and destination; quotes for 5 or more passengers require a non-refundable $350 planning fee for a single departure and destination. All planning fees and trip deposits are non-refundable and non-transferable.

Why do you charge a fee for travel quotes?

2BusyNot2Travel is a professional service provider holding travel industry, business industry, and project management credentials and certifications. 2BusyNot2Travel maintains aforementioned credentials and certifications along with industry knowledge and know how via continued extensive travel & project management training, seminars, mentoring sessions, site visits, cruise tours and vendor trade-shows. Our owner has over 30 years of business and customer service experience dedicated to a high level of client service demanded by busy corporate executives, emerging affluent and affluent clients that desire to assign the details to a professional while they simply reap the rewards of a well planned and executed travel and/or meeting experience. We allow our clients to focus on what is important in their daily lives and leave the planning and execution to us. Our clients have more time for teacher/parent conferences, daddy/daughter dances, little league baseball games, date nights, tennis, more vacation fun & relaxation and/or more client engagement and profitable meetings because they leave the planning and execution to us. 2BusyNot2Travel focuses on the quality of the client experience by providing the highest level of client service during the sale, during the trip experience and after the trip experience which caterers to our client demographic – we are not a drive-thru travel agency.

Do I need to pay a new quote fee with every request?

No, your initial planning fee is valid for 30 days. If a trip reservation is not finalized within 30 days, a new planning fee will be requested to provide additional quotes.

Do you have a mailing list for future events?
