The Christmas season is upon us; this is a time of family traditions passed down through the years, festivities, get togethers, catching up with friends and colleagues, the hustle and bustle of the season, the traditional turkey dinner. And most importantly, this holy season is a time to reflect on the true meaning of Christmas, the birth of Christ and the myriad of gifts He has bestowed on us…family, friends, our country, our prosperity, the opportunities and freedoms that we enjoy, to name a few. Roslyn and I are so thankful too, for the many friends we have made during our travels and the good times shared.
Christmas is also a time to remember those who are much less fortunate than ourselves and to do what we can, whenever we can to alleviate their suffering. This year, many of you have been generous in donating to the AfriCan Link Fund, a charity which Craig Travel supports in Plettenberg Bay, South Africa. As of this writing, in 2017, together we have contributed over $3,200 which is literally contributing to the lives of hundreds, providing a daily meal to those in need. Thank you! You may read more on the soup kitchen and learn how you can contribute here.
Have you received your 2018 Craig Travel calendar? If you have travelled with us within the last two years, a copy is in the mail and you may recognize some of the images! If you haven’t travelled but would like a copy, simply contact us and we’ll be happy to send this little gift to you as well, while supplies last.
2017 has been an exceptionally busy one for Craig Travel. We’ve featured some exciting new destinations - A Taste of Wales, Cruising on the Great Lakes, Iran, Cruising the Loire, hiking in the Alps, Britain by Rail and others. And of course, our annual favourites, taking our travelling friends to every continent, continue to be popular and sell out quickly. We are looking forward to 2018 and to presenting exciting, new destinations to discover. There’s lots to come! Be sure to visit craigtravel.com often, as new departures are added frequently.
Other important events to keep in mind:
2019 will mark the 50th Anniversary of Craig Travel and we will mark it with an exciting new cruise in the Pacific region. Watch for information in the coming months. 2020 will see the celebration of Oberammergau, the small village in Germany which performs the Passion Play every ten years. Full details will be available early next year as well.
On behalf of our family, our staff and our travel escorts, we wish you a very Merry Christmas and a year filled with good health, joy and exciting travel adventures, wherever they may lead!
David and Roslyn Craig
