MARCH 2013 S ince I was little, I loved to travel. Each trip, whether it was a school trip in fourth grade or a family trip to North Carolina, it has been all about visiting new places and seeing new things. Each trip, by plane, land or sea, stays near to my heart when I am thinking of a ‘happy thought.’ Some vacations don’t require a ticket; some only need a tank of gas and a little imagination. Setting a day aside and taking off in your car can be liberating. There are several places all over the Space and Treasure Coasts that you might have never known before. This issue of Forever Young will highlight some of the best day trips for you and your family. We’ve talked to mechanics in each market about what you need to do with your car before heading to the

open road. And, just in case your sights for travel are headed a little farther than the East Coast, we’ve talked to travel agents on what the best tricks and tips are for traveling on a budget. One of my favorite day trips was with my family. We drove to Orlando for the day and instead of going to the usual theme parks, we went off the beaten path and on a train. We had looked in the newspaper and saw a train station had been remodeled, so the Celebration Station train took us on a round-trip tour of Central Florida.

The impromptu trip still stays highlighted in my mind. In the morning, we started out in a direction, and by that night we had a memory. So, take a day, grab a friend and head out and explore this beautiful state that people travel from all over the world to see.

Travel expert shares thoughts

By Dan McDonald For Hometown News

When it comes to tourist destinations, well, Florida is once again leading the pack. According to Visit Florida, the state’s official tourism marketing corporation, people just can’t get enough of the Sunshine State. Florida destinations, resorts, attractions, beaches and sunshine welcomed 87.3 million visitors last year, a more than 4 percent increase from 2010, when a sour economy and a Gulf oil spill cut into the action. With so much attraction pulling visitors into the state, we thought it only appropriate to offer a professional opinion on where you might consider going. So, if you haven’t been to these suggested destinations, consider what you might be missing.

Christina Dillon Slather on some sunscreen, fill up the tank, pack the car and head off for some home-state adventure. Christina Dillon, a 16-year travel agent veteran, who helps people plan

their adventures from the Suntree office of Gadabout Travel, said she feels Florida boasts enough to satisfy any desire. “Let’s face it, millions of people spend their vacation dollars and time getting to Florida,” Mrs. Dillon said. “We have it all. And, fortunately for us, it’s only a car ride away.” Mrs. Dillon suggests these hot spots, as her top Florida destinations: • Orlando: The ‘Magic City’ offers unique experiences for every visitor to ensure an unforgettable vacation. Whether that means a week spent at theme parks or a weekend on the golf course, an Orlando getaway is whatever you want it to be. From theme parks, attractions, arts and culture to

shopping, spas, golf, dining, outdoor adventures and nightlife. Orlando has it all. • Miami Beach: In both daytime and at nightfall, the South Beach section of Miami Beach is a major entertainment destination with hundreds of nightclubs, restaurants, boutiques and art-deco hotels. The area is popular with both American and international tourists. Did I mention stone crabs? • St. Augustine: The nation’s oldest city is loaded with attractions that bring to life the history, adventure and romance of pioneer Florida. Stay in a quaint bed & breakfast or modern hotel. You can visit Castillo de San Marcos, the oldest masonry fort See TRAVEL, Page 12

CRUISING

Solo-adventurist chooses cruises

“It was my first time on a Flo-rider, and I stood up just long enough to get my picture snapped, but, it was fun.”

By Dan McDonald For Forever Young

Linda Lundstedt loves cruising and is counting down the days until she’s strolling the decks of her favorite ship, Royal Caribbean’s Freedom of the Seas, a trip she typically takes two or three times a year. What makes the 52-year-old Florida Tech secretary unusual is that she is willing and able to travel alone, leaving her husband and family behind. “I love cruising, and my husband doesn’t,” said Mrs. Lundstedt, a West Melbourne resident. “He’s fine with me going, and I am fine with him not going. It’s really not that unusual. There are always quite a few single cruisers on board, and there are always events and activities that allow you to meet other people, so you’re not totally alone. “I’m not saying it’s for everyone, but I don’t think you shouldn’t go if you like cruising,” she continued. “The best thing about the cruises is that even though I go alone, I feel very safe. You have an itinerary and a crew that looks out for you. You have on-board personnel, who are always near and helpful. To me, it’s a great way to travel.” Christina Dillon, a travel agent with Gadabout Travel in Suntree, books many of the trips Mrs. Lundstedt takes, most of which set sail right from Port Canaveral. Nowadays, she said she is booking more and more single travelers. “I think, at one time, it might have been more unusual,” Mrs. Dillon said. “In fact, some ships tend to penalize single-cabin travelers. But that’s changing, as well. It could well be that this is the changing demographics.” For Mrs. Lundstedt, the concept of traveling alone is already a success. “The ship has everything I want,” Mrs. Lundstedt said. “I get to have good food, entertainment, and there is also adventure along the way. I’ve ridden horses in Jamaica, have zip-lined through the jungle, tubed down a river

I even tried the Flo-rider on board, which is like surfing in a pool.” Mrs. Lundstedt said it’s the cruising lifestyle that she’s really come to enjoy. “One way I’ve found to be able to enjoy these vacations is that I actually have a layaway plan with the travel agency,” she said. “I couldn’t afford to go all the time if I had to come up with $700 or $800 at one time. So instead, every paycheck I’ll pay $50 or $100. Sometimes I’ll actually pay more so I have a cash-credit when I’m ready to go. That way, by the time the trip comes along, it’s already paid for, and I’m not worried or stressed about coming up with the money.” Mrs. Lundstedt said her advice for anyone out there, who might wonder if cruising is for them, is to give it a try. “It’s very doable,” she said. “The crew

and agents are fantastic. It’s a wonderful experience. I’d much rather take a cruise by myself than say drive a car across the country alone. I think cruising is much safer.” Alison Turner, director of marketing and communications for the Cruise Lines International Association, said her company keeps no statistics for single cruisers. “We don’t have figures on single travelers,” Ms. Turner said. “But, cruise ships are very good at accommodating all passengers. I would say that everyone on board is going to be safe, and since hospitality and customer satisfaction is a big part of the ship-personnel training, everyone should be able to have a good time.” Some ships actually have special accommodations for single travelers that include a smaller stateroom, Ms.

-Linda Lundstedt Turner said. Other ships have single events, mixers or cocktail receptions, so single guests can mingle. For Mrs. Lundstedt, whose next cruise is on ‘layaway’ for a May departure, said she enjoys the chance to relax and have a crew of people ready to wait on her. “I’ve traveled so much that now I’m a Diamond member, which means I get certain perks,” she said. “Sometimes I’ve been upgraded to a suite, or larger stateroom. Sometimes, I’ll have a little gift basket waiting for me when I check in. Sometimes, there are special cocktail receptions. It’s a nice little addition.” “I know it’s not for everyone, but it works well for me,” she added. “I love the whole experience. It’s like having a very nice hotel room that travels along with you.”

It grew from that.” Even though you do have to be single to join, the group stresses that it’s not designed as a “dating club.” “I think it’s fair to say we are an

BOATING Learning to boat or sail is similar to learning to drive an automobile. Neither one happens overnight. Learning to get around on the water can be exciting, but it can also be intimidating to take over the reins of a boat for the first time. Though beginners might be apprehensive when they first start to boat or sail, there are some tips that can make it a little easier for those new to captaining their own ship. Start small. Much like teenagers learning to drive are often more comfortable learning behind the wheel of a compact car, boating beginners might be more comfortable learning to sail on a small boat. Smaller boats are easier to maneuver, making even the most nervous novice a little more comfortable. Choose calm waters in which to

practice. According to the United States Coast Guard, in 2010, there were more than 4,600 recreational boating accidents that involved 672 deaths. Beginners should always practice in calm waters that don’t boast big waves or lots of fellow boaters. This gives beginners the chance to learn the feel of the boat without the added pressure of handling choppy waters or traffic. Read the weather reports. Veteran boaters struggle with inclement weather from time to time, so beginners should expect to struggle with adverse conditions, as well. But don’t be caught off guard by bad weather. Always check the weather reports before going out, and be sure to bring along appropriate attire and gear. Don’t go it alone. Boating and sailing come with their own terminology,

Before heading out on the water, learn as much of this terminology as possible – be it by studying manuals or books or even asking experienced friends for help. Respect other boaters.

We’re only limited in what people want to do and organize,” Mr. Thomas said. “Anyone can come up with an idea and make the arrangements and put it on the calendar. It’s great. By being a group, we get a discount on some services and events, and of course, we have the advantage of doing something we enjoy with others.” Susan Nolan knows the advantage of belonging to the Trailblazers. The Indian Harbour Beach resident recalls exactly when she decided to join. “It was New Year’s Eve five years ago, and I didn’t have any plans,” said Ms. Nolan, a Brevard County third-grade teacher. “I was about to spend the night alone when a friend of mine, who was a member said, ‘Why don’t you come to the Trailblazer New Year’s Eve party?’ So I

went and had so much fun that I joined the next week.” Since joining, Ms. Nolan has gone white-water rafting, taken a trip to Savannah, boating on Cumberland Island and ventured to the Florida Keys. “It’s just a lot of fun,” she said. “The good thing about the group is the trips are all planned out. All you have to do is write a check and show up. It makes it very easy to enjoy an outing.” While the group stresses it isn’t a ‘dating’ club, often the proximity to other singles leads to more than travel, as Ms. Nolan admitted. “I met my boyfriend at a Trailblazer event,” she said. “We first met when a group of Trailblazers gathered at a Friday Fest in Downtown Melbourne. Later that year, we went to the Keys and ran into each other again. I thought it was just the sun and water and adventure, but once I

BREVARD — For those who love the variety of a great Chinese buffet, coupled with traditional, American cuisines, there is a new venue in Titusville. Buffet Village offers diners a variety of foods, including American, Chinese, Hibachi, salads, sushi and desserts. “We offer a lot of variety, so, if a family comes in, we have a little bit of everything for everyone,” said Jason Ni, owner of Buffet Village. “We have been working on the restaurant since August, and we have always wanted to get into the Titusville area.” The restaurant, which had its grand opening on Jan. 11, immediately gives customers a unique dining experience the moment they enter the door, with a large water

fountain and beautiful, colorful lighting fixtures that hang from ceiling. The eating area is also spacious, and it gives diners the ability to easily access the buffet. In the Chinese area, diners can choose from different Chinese selections, including lo-mein, sesame chicken and fried rice. The American section includes such favorites as pizza, chicken nuggets and fries. Customers can also choose from a selection of various sushi dishes and Hibachi grilled items. Mr. Ni, who lived in China until he was 12, said his business is different from other local area buffets because he and his staff have an extensive culinary background and knows how to best prepare dishes

that diners enjoy. “We have a lot of experience, and, if we put something out, we will make sure everyone likes it.” For those who would like more than a buffet, Buffet Village also offers a menu with a variety of options. Buffet Village is located at 3125 Columbia Blvd. in Titusville and is open Sunday to Thursday from 11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. and Friday to Saturday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. During the week, lunch buffet prices are $7.49 and dinner is $10.99. On Friday and Saturday, the lunch buffet $7.49 and dinner is $11.49. Sunday is an all-day price of $11.49. For more information, call (321) 268-1778.

ew hobbies can be as enjoyable one moment and as frustrating the next as golf. Golfers know a great putt can be quickly followed by a bad tee shot, and maintaining their composure through the highs and lows of the game is a key to success on the links. Maintaining composure isn’t always easy, even for the professionals. It’s even more difficult for beginners, who quickly learn golf involves more than just spending sunny weekend afternoons on pristine golf courses. In fact, golf can be quite demanding and beginners would be wise to heed a few tips before hitting the course. Don’t commit to an expensive set of clubs right off the bat.

hang of what they like before spending a lot of money. Visit a pro shop and explain that you are a beginner. The shop will likely make some valuable suggestions and might even let you try out some clubs. In addition, many driving ranges allow customers to rent clubs and this can be a great and inexpensive way to find the right clubs for you. Take lessons. Even the very best at self-teaching might find it extremely difficult to become a self-taught golfer. When first trying your hand at golf, take some lessons and don’t expect to be playing 18 holes any time soon. Before hitting the course

— where you might be discouraged and you might frustrate those golfing behind you — learn the fundamentals by taking a few lessons at the driving range. Learn from a professional, who won’t offer you any hidden secrets to golfing glory (there aren’t any) but will offer sound advice on the game’s fundamentals. Take the game home with you. Beginners can even take advantage of golf’s vast popularity by taking the game home with them. This doesn’t mean building a putting green in your backyard. Rather, purchase some instructional DVDs to learn the game during your down time throughout the week. Many golfers don’t have time to hit the links during the week, but they do have time to watch some DVDs when they get home from work. Such instructional DVDs can help you master

your grip and stance, which you can then take with you to the course over the weekend. Have fun. Golf is a fun game; it just takes time to hone your skills. But even if you aren’t ready for the professional tour after your first few rounds, you can still have fun. Don’t let some beginner’s frustration, which every golfer experiences, ruin the fun of the game. Take note of your surroundings when you hit the links, and appreciate the time you’re spending with your group. If the game becomes more a source of frustration than fun, then take a break and put in some more work away from the course, be it at the driving range or studying at home.

hen I think of history in Florida, my mind automatically goes to St. Augustine. There is something about the Castillo De San Marco looming out over the water and the shops on and around St. George Street that brings out the adventurer in me. The shops along St. George Street are part of the history itself. The various current souvenir shops were mortuaries, shops that housed the soldiers and the town folk from centuries. Seek out the Oldest House, close to the City Gates on St. George Street. The small wooden school house was built more than 200 years ago when Florida was controlled by Spain. Walk further down St. George Street and see the water wheel, and a little further down, keep your eyes peeled for a small sign leading to the Old Spanish Bakery.

The building, one of the first on St. George Street, is used to cook delicious Spanish foods like empanadas and fresh bread that fills the surrounding area. The old hearth and is still used for bread making. Bring your cash though, because as old as the building is, the bakery is not able to get a phone line. The downtown area offers a plethora of dining experiences that can only be found there. My favorites are the Columbia Restaurant, Scarlett O’Hara’s and to satisfy my craving for wine, Sangrias. After shopping to your heart’s content, head to the Castillo De San

Marco. Building of the fort began in 1672 to defend Florida against pirates hunting the Spanish treasure ships. The history of the fort includes Spanish, Seminole and Apache Indian, French and British history. The tour through the fort will bring you through the soldier’s quarters, through the gunpowder room (you have to crawl through the small area), the cathedral and up along the battlements where live reenactments of cannon fire are done. The battlement also gives you the most gorgeous view of the Matanzas Bay, the ships and the light house.

The tour was featured on the Travel Channel and the Discovery Channel. Walking with the period dressed guide around the city was a real eye opener to the life that was lived centuries before. The stories continue to each land mark, then through the Tolomato and Hugenaut Cemeteries.

The most important thing to remember is to clearly label all that you are carrying with the herb name, uses and dosage. You’d be surprised what you forget in an emergency. My kit contains the following herbs along with band-aids, gauze, scissors, tape and tweezers. With these you too can be prepared for many conditions encountered on your travels.

Maybe catch a ghost tour or stop by and reclaim your younger days at the fabled Fountain of Youth. • Key West: Everything ‘Southernmost,’ the capital of the Conch Republic is an island paradise in Florida.

Traveling with the right herbs

Echinacea extract helps both internal and external infections including wounds a cold or the flu. I’ve used it on venomous bug bites and as a gargle for a sore throat. Homeopathic Arnica and Arnica salve help reduce inflammation and pain. When used immediately they can help prevent bruising. I carry a small amount of homeopathic Arnica with me in my purse; it helped when I was in a car accident to prevent bruising. It works by influencing levels of NF kappa-B a central mediator of inflammation. Dried Ginger comes in handy for sea

sickness, motion sickness and nausea when made into a tea. In a tea as a nasal wash I have used it to relieve sinus congestion and when added to a bath it helped a severe cold and body aches. Powdered Yarrow applied topically on wounds disinfects and stops the bleeding. This is probably why soldiers carried Yarrow with them since medieval times. Burn Salve made with Calendula, Plantain, Comfrey and St. Johns Wort. This blend helps sunburns, cuts, bruises, splinters, blisters, dry skin, chapped lips and nose bleeds. Elderberry extract for cough and respiratory infections, it contains compounds that prevent flu viruses from invading and infecting cells. I also carry the essential oils of Peppermint, Tea Tree and Lavender. Peppermint is used to relieve sore muscles and headaches. It works by

depleting substance P (a neurotransmitter that registers pain). I dilute Peppermint with jojoba oil because it can be irritating to skin. I have also used it on long road trips to keep me alert. Tea Tree works as an antiseptic for the mouth, cuts and bug bites plus it keeps bugs form biting you. 23 drops of Lavender can be put directly on a burn to relieve pain or to relive the itch of a bug bite. 20 drops added to 2oz. cool water can be dabbed or sprayed on to sunburn. It can be applied to your temples to relieve headaches and for insomnia. I have had plenty of opportunities to use my first aid kit, having it with me gives me peace of mind while I’m on the road.

take a cruise or gaming ship out of Port Canaveral or kayak the 1,000 Islands. Fish off the surf or pier, or check out Kennedy Space Center and its exhilarating and educational look at the incredible feats accomplished by America’s space program. You don’t need a genie to enjoy Cocoa Beach. • Daytona Beach: From Daytona International Speedway, home of the granddaddy of NASCAR races to the Ponce de Leon Lighthouse, there are plenty of things to do and places to see in the Daytona Beach area. The beaches in the Daytona Beach area are always open and free to pedestrians and automobiles, from sunrise to sunset, depending on tidal conditions. A great, quick getaway spot. • Panama City: If there’s one thing the Panhandle of Florida takes seriously, it’s Panama City Beach. It is full of fun, and depending upon the time of year: Spring Breakers! With boatloads of family attractions, top-notch dining, beach activities and amazing accommodations - on or under the water - you’re sure to enjoy life in

another time zone. • Destin: The city of Destin on the Florida panhandle is home to the most beautiful white, silky-sand beaches, crystal-clear waters and sunsets along the Gulf of Mexico. A thriving resort community, Destin still manages to maintain a smalltown atmosphere and charm. Destin has also gained a reputation for its fine restaurants, unique shops, and world-class resorts. It is home to a very popular upscale outlet shopping center, a large water park and numerous golf courses. • Sanibel Island: Home of Casa Ybel Resort, a 23-acre paradise, which served Thomas Edison and Henry Ford long before being voted one of the grandest hotels in the world, this island is a true paradise. Sanibel has everything one could wish for, from excellent restaurants, accommodations, golfing and tennis to fishing, boating, shopping, bike paths, canoes, theatrical productions and breathtaking sunsets. Sanibel and sister island Captiva, are world-renowned for their shelling

beaches and have given rise to the ‘Sanibel Stoop,’ named for the posture of people bending over to pick up a shell. In the travel industry, Sanibel Island is a top Florida destination for visitors. If you truly want a family vacation, holiday, wedding, honeymoon, anniversary or getaway, this is the place to go.

been another plane. I just don’t get a warm, fuzzy feeling knowing there is a person driving in the same skyspace as we are - that could not avoid such a monster object while on the ground. I also have to wonder how they found out there was a bump and consequential dent. Did one pilot get out of his plane and leave a note containing his license number and insurance company information? Did a sky cap witness the incident

and call someone in the control tower? Does the pilot, who did the bumping, have to take a two-hour course to keep the points off his license? Other than that, we had a mostly uneventful trip, and considering what a big flight-baby I am, I must say, breaking only two fingernails, while disengaging them from the armrests and having only one person stumble over me when I kneeled to kiss the tarmac is perhaps my personal best post-flight behavior to date.

“Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not.” -Ralph Waldo Emerson

March is Brain Injury Awareness Month. Melbourne Terrace Rehabilitation Center promotes public awareness of brain injury, in collaboration with the Brain Injury Association of America’s yearly campaign. Every fall has the capacity to injure the brain to some extent. Research shows that people 65 and older are in the greatest risk category for falls and subsequent injury. Melbourne Terrace is offering free consultation and computerized balance testing with a trained physical therapist to discuss the benefits of a balance & fall prevention program. They report using a new and advanced technology with a computerized Biosway balance device. Their department of balance rehabilitation includes therapists with advanced vestibular training and certification, which means they bring special knowledge of the complex sensors in the eyes, ears and body and how it relates to brain function and balance. The balance test only takes a patient two minutes standing on a Biosway platform to determine the ability to maintain safe balance. The system provides a clinical printed report that can be given to physicians and then used to implement a wide variety of balance-related exercises. A patient can then learn new balance strategies via biofeedback from a
