Ireland - The Ring of Kerry

The mystical Ring of Kerry, with its emerald hills and clear blue waters, provides us with an insight into the ancient heritage of Ireland.

Meeting in the town of Killarney, we discover a land of forests and lakes, of Franciscan abbeys and Druidic stone circles. We visit the Torc waterfalls and examine Celtic writings on an ancient Ogham stone, before sampling the famous Irish craic in a traditional lakeside inn.

Highlights of our trip include traditional Irish music and folklore, and meeting a local farmer on the hills above Caragh Lake who explains the traditional methods for cutting turf.

Motorcycling The Ho Chi Minh Trail
Myths & Mountains

Motorcycling The Ho Chi Minh Trail

This trip is a first - a motorcycle trip down the famous Ho Chi Minh trail from Hanoi to Saigon on primarily Honda or Suzuki 125 cc motorcycles. Along the way, you can share discussions with a guide who was part of the war - Le Van Cuong - and visit places that had meaning for him on the trail. During your ride, you will visit everything from Ho Chi Minh's birthplace to the Chinese fishing town of Hoi An, to the hill retreat of Dalat. This is true Vietnam - a trip like no other. Part is on a new highway, part on dirt roads, part in towns, part in hill tribe villages (Se Dang, Pa Co, Bahnar, and others). Some of the hotels are excellent, but others are very, very basic - the best available - so be prepared.

Part of the trip vividly shows the Vietnam of today, and part is recorded forever in history. As one man who road the trail said, "I have traveled all around the world, but this is the first time I have traveled IN the world."

Croatia - The Dalmatian Coast
The Wayfarers

Croatia - The Dalmatian Coast

Croatia's historic walled city, Dubrovnik, is the starting point for this eight-day journey through one of Europe's most diverse and beautiful countries.

Following paths through cypress woods and medieval towns, we explore Croatia's sleepy harbor towns and villages, and the milk-white limestone buildings that recall a bygone Mediterranean. We discover ancient monasteries and cathedrals, meander along rambling streets and through dramatic gorges.

A highlight of this Walk is the private boat-trip from the foot of Vidova Gora Mountain, which takes us to a secluded terrace restaurant overlooking the sea where we dine on fresh fish caught that morning.
