LITTLETON, Colo., Jan. 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Despite countless New Year's resolutions promising to spend more time with family or to check-off destinations from a growing "Bucket List," this year, Americans are planning to give back millions of unused vacation days. Now, Monograms is helping these want-to-be-travelers use their vacation days instead. The all-in-one packaged vacation travel company and member of the award-winning Globus family of brands is helping make going to Europe not only possible – with 20 vacations priced under $1,000 – but also easy.
"This year, it's time to promise ourselves the dreaming will stop and the doing will begin," said Scott Nisbet, president and CEO for the Globus family of brands. "Monograms is prepared to help. We have experts on hand to put together all-in-one vacation packages to Europe – including a London Getaway priced from $558. All travelers have to do is say 'yes' and go."
For 2014, Monograms has unveiled more than 60 European vacations, including new combination packages in the United Kingdom, Eastern Europe and Spain. These new offerings bundle such exciting destinations as London, York & Edinburgh with Stonehenge & Bath; Vienna, Salzburg, Innsbruck & Munich and Barcelona, Madrid, Seville, Cordoba & Torremolinos with Toledo.
In addition to including must-see sites in each destination, Monograms vacation packages provide travelers such vacation details as hotels and transportation between destinations, while also giving them an on-site Local Host in each city to act as a personal concierge, arranging optional sightseeing and excursions and giving recommendations for what to see and do.
Plus, new for 2014, Monograms has put together an impressive list of 20 European vacations packages for under $1,000. They include:
- London Getaway, starting at $558

All of the above listed prices are per person, land-only, select departure dates.
According to Nisbet, "Thanks to our expertly planned and bundled vacations, Monograms travelers get to spend time enjoying Big Ben while others not traveling with us spend time looking at their watch. With Monograms, travelers can sit and enjoy a second latte knowing your transportation to your next city is already taken care of while others are on their second bus. In short, we help our travelers enjoy every minute of their much deserved vacation."
Monograms also gives travelers – and agents – the option to personalize and pack fun into their vacation, before they go. Customizable options in Europe include such unique experiences as taking a trip to Normandy landing beaches, driving to the hilltop town of Tivoli to view the ruins and enjoying a guided ghost tour of Venice to walking through the Olympic Village in Barcelona, biking through Amsterdam and learning about the art of beer-making in Munich. These options, and many more, are available to travelers for pre-purchase byway of MyMonograms.
"Someday too often means never when we talk about our vacation dreams," said Nisbet. "Monograms is helping Americans understand there's no better time than now to walk the cobblestone streets of Italy or have a pint to celebrate 2014 in a genuine pub in Ireland."
With nearly 40 offices staffed with more than 200 travel experts that extend as far as Asia and as wide as Europe, Monograms has a rich reputation as a company travelers can depend on to help them simplify travel planning while creating special dream getaways. Monograms affords travelers the power to personalize their vacation without having to take care of planning details or logistics, thanks to the on-site support of a Local Host. With Monograms, travelers are assured their vacation details are taken care of, including hotel, transportation, sightseeing and more, so they can simply focus on having fun. Monograms is part of the Globus family of brands, an award-winning, travel industry leader with 85 years of international travel expertise.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
