While most people search using the phrase cheap Caribbean vacations (one r and double b), there are those who spell it cheap Carribean vacations (double r and one b). Whichever term they use in identifying their travel destination, they want it to be inexpensive and affordable.
As I thought about focusing on travel related pastor appreciation gifts, that term seems to qualify for several reasons, as outlined in this article.
Cheap Caribbean vacations are perfect for those wanting to provide a memorable travel gift as their expression of appreciation. Of course, the word cheap must be defined, referring to an inexpensive destination trip, not the person receiving the gift.
So if the travel gift is one that is frugal, inexpensive, and affordable, cheap Caribbean vacations is the perfect term to use in finding a pastor appreciation travel gift.
My wife and I missed out on the Caribbean cruises several family members have taken in the past few years. Even if they were cheap cruise deals, we just did not have the time in our busy schedules.
That said, retirement is on the horizon for my wife and travel is on her mind, so we will indeed explore these inexpensive vacations after she retires from her teaching career.
Now for us and I suppose many others who want to travel in retirement, cheap travel plans will be the key to any of the vacation trips we take.
My wife's brother and his family raved about an affordable Caribbean Cruise they took several years ago. Now to be fair, what they say is an affordable cruise vacation may not be the same as what we define as affordable retirement travel.
I do notice, though, that many of the cruise line vacations are geared to senior adult cruises. A few years ago We took a Vacations To Go cruise to Alaska and now receive a steady stream of mailings focusing on 55 plus cruises, many of them affordable cruise packages to destinations all over the world.
These cruise focused brochures focus on inexpensive travel experiences, many of which are affordable family cruise deals to the Caribbean, and would make a great pastor appreciation travel gift.
"Take a vacation" is often suggested to busy pastors. If their travel destination is too close to home, maybe a quick family getaway, the vacation part of the trip is often totally missed, especially by a workaholic pastor.
The word vacation should be a hint your pastor as to the purpose of this travel gift. Caribbean cruises and vacations suggest time away for a period of time, with many of these destination cruises being 7 day, 10 day, and even 14 day cruises to the Caribbean.
That should suggest to the pastor who thinks he or she is too busy to take an extended trip mean the pastor should focus on the "vacation" word, letting his church focus on the "cheap" or frugal part of the phrase.
Doing so would be a good idea for churches wanting to honor their pastor with a cruise to the Caribbean.
Every aspect of expressing pastor appreciation would be met in cheap Caribbean vacations, forcing the pastor to truly get away from the demands of ministry while enjoying all that the Caribbean has to offer for a memorable trip.
