Welcome

I've had the great fortune to be able to travel. People in our world are always revealing small views of their lives and goals, living in cities or villages. Come see some of what I've seen.

Paris, Alps, Dolomites, Lombardy and Venice

Since we love mountains and hiking we signed up for the Northern Italy: The Alps, Dolomites & Lombardy tour offered by OAT. And since we love Paris and haven't visited Venice together, we added days before and after the tour.

Ancient Kingdoms

Gate at Wat Thom

On OAT's Ancient Kingdoms: Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, we were immersed in the vibrant cultures that have emerged in the wakes of lost empires. Traveling the Indochina peninsula through Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, and Vietnam, we connected with locals who shared their homes, markets, and schools with us. We slipped into daily life for A Day in the Life of a Laotian village, where we met young schoolchildren and Hmong villagers. We experienced the quiet tranquility of the early morning alms-giving ceremony with local monks.

OAT's Morocco Sahara Odyssey Tour and extension to Chefchaouen is an adventure in cities, villages and the Sahara Desert, mixing Berber, French, and Spanish cultures in a Muslim parliamentary kingdom. We stayed in conventional hotels, riads, and a desert camp. We met a variety of people from many walks of life - students, nomads, migrants, city dwellers, artisans and more.

We finally made it to Iceland on OAT's Untamed Iceland tour and extension to Westman Islands 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.

For some reason we haven't visited Prague until recently. We were very pleasantly surprised by this beautiful city.

Travelling nearly half way around the world, we visited New Zealand and Australia on OAT's New Zealand: Natural Wonders North & South tour and extension to Sydney and Great Barrier Reef.  We walked, hiked, paddled, snorkled and tasted wine - all very civilized.
