Antarctica

Aitcho Island
Aitcho Island

Steven has always been fascinated by Antarctica and the extreme conditions it brings to mind. A place on earth where humans were never meant to be. The cycle of life is striped to the bare minimum; the food chain is plain to see; the balance of give and take are fragile; every piece essential to the other.

OAT's White Wilderness offered a perfect chance to fulfill the dream. Their Antarctic program begins with a medical check-up to limit health risks in one of the most remote locales on our planet. Then there's the clothing and photography checklist to assemble: warm socks, waterproof pants, base-layers, parkas, etc.

We've always wanted to visit the Scotland but there never seemed to be a good time. Finally we decided to go with friends and visit the grand kids on a tour through the highlands.

Having won a trip for two that had to be taken in 2019, Sylvia and I decided to go to Tanzania for our fortieth wedding anniversary. We loved our experience in Southern Africa and wanted to see the "endless plain" that is the Serengeti. OAT's Safari Serengeti: Tanzania Lodge & Tented Safari provided the perfect venue to celebrate.

Iceland

We finally made it Iceland after years of procrastinating about going. It turned out to be fascinating in many ways. It's a land of volcanoes and glaciers, puffins and whales.

May took us on the California Zephyr train to Chicago after a stopover in Madison, Wisconsin. Our first visit together to the Windy City was packed with long walks, bus rides, and museum visits. We thoroughly enjoyed the dining and the evening walks along the Chicago River.

We visited Cuba in April 2015 to see the effects of communist rule before sweeping changes occur after improved economic relations with the US. I've written a short essay about our experiences and have posted photographs which expose both good and bad views of our island neighbor.

Costa Rica

Our first trip with Overseas Adventure Travel. We were delighted by the way the tour was conducted; we felt that we weren't merely consuming the country as tourists, but participating in a small improvement to their lives and building an image of Americans not found in media.
