I am not a travel agent or sell trips, I just create content about places, cruises and destinations to help independent travellers. So the only formal itineraries that I plan, arrange and book are my personal ones ratther than trips I am invited on (that the tourist board or cruise company asking me arranges). So the most recent personal one is for a Christmas and New Year trip to Los Angeles and Las Vegas
